Spartan TCM Transmission Relearn Process!!!

1.) From a stop, accelerate the vehicle to 55-60 mph at approximately 1/4 throttle. DO THIS TWICE.
2.) From a stop, accelerate the vehicle to 65-70 mph at approximately 1/2 throttle. DO THIS TWICE.
3.) From a stop, accelerate the vehicle to 70 mph at approximately 3/4 throttle. DO THIS TWICE.
4.) From a 40 mph roll, press the accelerator to the floorboard quickly (forcing the truck to downshift) and accelerate to around 75 mph.
5.) From a stop, acclerate to 75 mph at wide open throttle (press the accelator to the floor immediately). DO THIS 2-3 TIMES.


I hope this helps guys! This is straight off the procedure sheet

Yeah, it does sound like fun.. I was trying to figure out where I can do this without getting a ticket/arrested.

Out near my ranch there is a road 1 mile long that doesn't get much traffic. It's not quite flat though. I'll give it a try.

The other possibility is that Matt has just sent me a NZL (near zero learning) version of my tunes. I'll have to give these a try too.

are those speeds by the speedo or actual speed (gps) for us boys w/ larger tires? I don't have the tcm or new 310 but i figure i'd go ahead and ask for those that do

08 F250 CC SB - too much to list

I loaded my 210 tune yesterday. Should I do something similar for the factory TCM to re-learn?

Anyone know for sure the procedure needed for re-learning the factory TCM? Is it needed when loading Spartan for the first time on my truck?

You could do it, yes. It would probably be the best thing to do right when you load the tune up for the first time so that your transmission learns your driving habits.

It wouldn't hurt to do it this way. It is a reccomended learning process, so I would do it even if I didnt have the new TCM.
