spartan and EGTs

Ok well ive done a lot of reading on the spartan and i am pretty much sold on it. but ive got two trucks i know you can do more than one truck with one tuner but do i really need to use the monitor on either truck because i dont really want to have to have it on my dash a all times. and what is the highest egts the trucks can handle and how long can i hold it on the floor before they get two high i am planning on running the 210 in both with the dpf/cat delete. Any advice will be apriciated.

You will be fine with the 210 tune. It takes a long time for the EGT's to hit 1600-1700 with the 210. Once you get to that point you dont want to hold it there, but its ok for a few seconds.

The 210 and under tunes have safety parameters built into them and defuel if stuff starts heating up, defuels at 1400 or so I think for EGT's, not sure on the rest. And no you don't really need to monitor it with the dashdaq unless your towing, then it would be a good idea.

My truck is a Job 1, and I have been using the 210 and 275 since January, and the 310 since May. My tranny has 65,000 miles of abuse on it. You will be fine with the 210, and most likely the 275 tune. I just wouldn't get the 310 without the TCM from Spartan
