You will have to load your stock file before switching from spartan to kem or kem to spartan.My dash daq doesn't give me the choice to load the spartan tunes if i have a kem tune loaded.

i went straight from the 250 spartan tune to the kem 250 tune without returning it to stock first. Its on my list of tunes along with the spartan files.

You shouldn't have to load the stock file when switching from a Spartan tune to a
KEM tune.

The Spartan TCM can be used with KEM's tunes too.

I must be doing something wrong. Plus I was told I would have to do it this way from where I bought my startan if I bought Kem tunes to run off my dash daq.

Tunes

Could you compare the Spartan 250 and the Kem 250 tunes?
