Spartan Tuner Help

New to the truck which has it and I have a few pretty easy questions. Anyone good with it wanna help out a newbie and perhaps shoot the $hit for a second. Or if anyone can help:

-Runnin 250 tune right now. Love it, just wanna know how safe it really is on the truck. I am not beetin it, and just keepin it under 2k rpm pretty much everyday. I go from work and home. If I tow its not much in which cause i'll change it. What is a good tune to run Daily Driver, and what am I damaging or taking away from life of the truck on the 250.

-Best tow tune for heavy loads

-Best tow tune for light duty

Suggestion of course

THanks, also whats up with the SD cards. Is that how the tunes are loaded and unloaded? Mine only has one and he said its got 15 different tunes 50-310 am I dancin pretty witha lot of stuff or what!

Welcome!

I personally run the 275 as my daily driver.

Heavy load, I would say run the 210 heavy tow tune.

Light load, that will be up to you. I pull my boat with the 275 tune, but I am pretty easy on it. Easy on throttle taking off.

Thanks man, I was told that too just making sure. Use to the Duramax which would die if you towed on a hot tune like 110 over stock or something haha. EGT's are awsome in this truck they are always low!!!! I will stick with the 250 than I don't really need any more for now. She is quick and trans is so nice. How long do they like to hold up if im easy as I am with it on a 24/7 basis and ony get into it if I have to like merge in traffic or soot a hybrid, I mean race a guy. Very very seldomly at that.

Obviously driver depending of course

And thanks for the welcome, you guys may not know how damn happy I am to back drivin a

Its hard to say, I'd search around the forum a little bit, you will see different threads on this subject. I vaguely remember one about, "longevity of 6.4 with tuner" or something like that. Everyone has their own opinions. I've been running mine since Jan of last year. No problems to date(knock on wood). But again, just browse around.

The 150 dpf on should be ok for pretty much anything. The important thing is to watch your egt's, trans and maybe coolant. Running stock with these temps too high will trash any truck. I pull a 7,000 lb trailer quite a bit with the KEM 310 and have had no issues.
