Spartan TCM

What all is involved with installing a spartan TCM? I only run the 250 tune. Would it be worth the money to upgrade?

It only takes 10-15 min to swap out. You wouldn't benefit anything from it if the higest you are running is the 250 tune

This may be a dumb question but is the TCM separate from the ECU? I ask because all the vehicles I have owned when you buy a quality tuner/chip/ect... you are able to tune the tranny along with the ECU without having to have separate hardware/software.

The TCM is separate from the ECM. And to the OP, no need in getting it if your just running the 250 tune as your highest tune.
