Many people are running it as daily driver with and without the TCM, but it is recommended that you run it with the Spartan TCM....especially if you have a stock Job 1 TCM. It won't cause your shifts to not be as hard, but it will result in very predictable smoother shifting. The shifts are still firm, just much smoother in general and spot on.

I have the 310 w/TCM, but prefer the 275 for daily use. At least until my trans upgrades are installed.

I would perform the relearn process every time you change tunes no matter what TCM your running. I ran the 310 for a few month prior to the TCM release and now I run it with the TCM. Shifting is very firm and fast but not violent by my standards. I have a Job 1 F450 with 4.88 gears and that does make thing a little different than a say 3.73 gear SRW truck.

I recommend it. Letting the tranny learn is very important when adding that much horsepower.

310

i have run the 310 on my job 1, 2,and 3 trucks with no tcm and have had zero issues. shifts are not super hard and i have never done a relearn process for shifting. i just loaded the 310 program and drove the trucks. job 1 shifts as good as the other two and i have never monitered any slipping at wot or any speed. i ran the 275 before that all the time with no issues. 310 shifts easier than the 275 in my opinion.
