Quick spartan question...

I finally got my spartan ordered and just have a quick question. Do i have to load tunes on it, or will it come preloaded. Im assuming since they are "strategy flash" that all i have to do is hook it up and select the tune i want to run. I was curious because i recieved an email that said i need to request tunes once i get my dd. Maybe that was just an automatic e-mail that is sent out? Any input would be great! Thanks

Ok cool. That what i was thought and that was the impression i got when i spoke to Aaron on the phone, but the e-mail from spartan confused me. Im sure he couldve explained it to me again but im sure there busy so i didnt want to bother him with a question i could get answered on here lol.

it is a good idea to start loading the tune you want to run first while you are just finishing up the work of putting the delete pipes on... it takes about a half hour to load and I didn't know that so I had to wait... sucked!! haha

Some of the newer ones are close to an hour to load so you might have to kill some time or load before everything.

Yea i have heard some people say that it has taken close to an hour. I think we're supposed to be gettin some snow in my area this weekend anyway so i wont be drivin my truck much next week due to all the salt lol. So once everything gets here i should have plenty of time to load it up and get the exhaust on before i get to drive it again anyway

When I first had to download the stock tune and upload the first tune, it took mine just a little over an hour. I started it, crawled underneath the truck and the tuning finished about 10 minutes before I did with the delete pipe.
