+ + +

*NOTE: Off road use ONLY

Product : phlxnuttypkg | Phalanx Flash Console w/14 custom tunes , Spartan DPF/CAT


Ok my truck is one of the first ones it was built like 2 or 3 of 2007. It actually doesn't have the job listing on the window sticker that is how old it is. So what kind of problems am I going to have? I want to know up front before I decide to deffinately buy a set up. I know someone was saying about having problems with the job 1. So what is the problem? Also I have had just about every update for the last year and a half just about every 4 months. My last update was around thanksgiving. Thinking about getting another one done soon....


Also can I get prices of this kit shipped to my door. 17201 is my zip

Job 1 trucks do not like the 310 tune very much. If you plan on running the 310 tune, I would suggest getting the Spartan TCM upgrade. It is very much worth the money. Don't worry about getting an update on your truck if your going to buy a tuner. The update won't be needed.

I am considering a Spartan but would only be running the 12 tunes package up to 250hp. My ride is a Job 1 also. Do you recommend the TCM upgrade for this as well?
Thanks for any input.

No, the 250 tune and under would be perfectly fine with a stock Job 1 TCM. I drove my truck with the stock Job 1 TCM for thousands and thousands of miles with the 275 tune. No quite sure exactly, but its over 20,000 miles. I just don't recommend the 310 tune, and neither does Spartan and most other vendors on here.

These Job 1 trucks actually started being built in 2006! I have a F450 that is a Job 1 05/07 and I, like Jeff, ran the 275 tune without a TCM for some time. I just wouldn't run the 310 without the TCM. The TCM does help the Job 1's a great deal if you can swing the cost.

I have a Job 1 truck as well. Would the package listed above be a good one, plus the TCM? I am looking at getting a package deal. If not would someone please tell me what works the best for the job 1 trucks ( if you were going to do it). Thanks, Not trying to swipe your post skipnay.

I'm just like you, if your getting that mad at someone asking a like question in someones thread and you get mad maybe you shouldn't be on the internet its all good.... Like I said mine was built early of 2007.... The TCM is what? I search it and its coming up with nothing...


UPDATE:

Found out what the TCM is how hard is it to hook up? Do I have to take the tranny out?
