New Tuning Updates

The latest tuning database updates that Mick had mentioned last week are in the process of being uploaded to our web server now. I'll give everyone a quick run-through of our latest changes and upgrades.

Job 1 210HP Tow Performance is fully repaired and running great. Performance and feel is very similar to the mating Job 2 and up files.

Job1 310HP transmission tuning has been recalibrated- users should find torque converter lock to be much crisper and aggressive, along with shifting more stable and predictable. There is a BIG improvement with this latest change that I think you guys will like It won't negate the benefits of our upgraded TCM for Job1 users, but it will help put extra power to the ground and keep the trans alive longer under abusive use.

310HP files for all trucks have been tweaked to reduce bucking and surging during load changes- but please note that the only TRUE fix for such bucking with high HP tunes (even with any brand of tuner) is properly installed traction bars, as the root cause is rear axle wrap.

All customers with a Level 3 License (ie, 310HP tune) will now see a full set of EGR delete tunes from 40HP to 250HP (275 and 310 are already EGR-delete compatible) to work with both full EGR system deletes (such as Elite Diesel's kit) or blocker plates (such as Cobb's kit). These files will correct all tuning issues with these kits and prevent any check-engine lights. All users with a 310HP will automatically receive this upgrade during the update, and any new tuners or new 310HP purchases will receive it automatically likewise- all free of charge

For anyone who isn't familiar with the update process, just see the FAQ's on our website for instructions and technical assistance.

Matt a couple of quick questions, how can I tell exactly which job my truck is? I have a truck that is in that window of Job 1 and Job 2 and really want the tow tune. Also should you set everything back to stock before the update?

Send me an email, techsupport@spartandieseltech.com

I need your vin # and strategy code. If your tuner is already strategy flash all you will need to do is log on to our website go to the right side of the page and select Update Tuner. The first set of file is for those with that stock tcm and the second for those that have the Spartan tcm on their truck.

Please note the tcm files have not been updates as of yet. I will post more as soon as Matt gets them uploaded to our server...
