Job2 before & after TCM comparison 275 & 310

First of all great customer service! Preordered the 310 got it early morning on the 7th. Ordered the TCM with new 310,275, & 210 on the 10th received it on the 11th

275
Before the TCM I thought the 275 shifts were hard and sort of jerky, after the TCM 1 to 2nd shifts perfect almost like the 210, 2nd to 3rd quick & firm shift not jolting like before, 3rd to 4th is now firmed up and feels good, lockup is at 45-48 MPH pulls good and much smoother dosen't have that boggish feel it sometimes had before if you mash the pedal while crusing with it locked. Its so smooth it has a little less seat of the pants feel. Mixed driving on a tank was 14.5 mpg

310
Is just nasty power! After the TCM, shifts are still firm but not jerky its still learning as I haven't put any WOT runs on it yet. lock up is arond 45 and pulls like crazy! I put all highway miles on it between 75-85 mph on a 200 mile run, topped it off and got 17.6 MPG! (hand calculated on both)

I would say def. worth the money for the overall driveabilty plus extra protection on the tranny!

Nice write-up. Question though, do you need to buy the TCM if you only plan on running the DashDaq and 210 tune? Maybe the 275 later? Job 3 truck(i believe)

No you don't need it for the 210 I had to have my 210 rewrote to work with the new TCM, the 275 will work fine also but the TCM does help the shifting.

Required No. The TCM was designed to speed up shifts to handle the huge torque loads and increase longevity in the trans. when running the race tunes 275, 310. The 210 shifts well w/ the oem tcm and are not required but would most likely only help the shifting and trans life. Keep in mind you would have to have your 210 tune re-written if you want to run the Spartan TCM.

$699.00 for the unit by itself. $799.00 for the unit with the 310 and 275 tunes. And from there is $37.50 per tune, or $100 for three

You just need the 275 tune. Tranny won't blow up, you end up cooking your frictions prematurely if you punish (try to destroy) the truck, tranny will hold with oem TCM and faithful maintainance. Down the road if you decidce to make the 275 tune your daily driver you can always upgrade to the modified TCM and have the tune re-written for it. Go for it, IT ROCKS!
