Feels good to be back in the PSD!

I got to pick my truck up yesterday after having some warranty work done at my local dealer and having my Sun Coast installed. My first impression driving the truck out of the breeze way at the dealer was, "holy hell this truck is big!". Yeah, its not that big, but it's been about 6 weeks since I've driven it...lol

Everything seems a-o-k right now. I'm running the Spartan 275 TCM tune at the moment. I'll be doing back to back dyno comparisons of the Spartan 275/310/350 TCM tunes vs. the KEM 275/310/345 tunes as soon as I get some free time. After that I'll be doing drivabilty testing on all the tunes as well. Of course I'll report back on my findings.

Send me the 350 tune and I'll have them all.

Don't know if the 275/310 tunes also need changes for my mods, but then again, that has been my issue with Spartan ever since doing more than just the normal intake, exhaust, programmer setup that everyone does.

Call the office and ask for Donna. They might be at lunch right now. She will get you set up with the 350 tune though. Just tell her the mods done to the truck when you ask for the tune. Also tell her you may need revised 275 and 310 tunes for the upgrades. She will be glad to help you out.

The problem with doing the mods is it can be hard to get the tunes just right by sending them via email. Its always best to have the truck live tuned when you do mods like you have done.

Can't wait to see the results. Once the new billet intermediate shaft comes out from Suncoast (2-4 weeks) my truck will be going in for a full rebuild.
