New Spartan and questions.....

Got my Spartan/DPF delete in the truck last nite. LOVE IT. Been running 210. Switching to 210 tow now to keep make sure my tranny shifts hard enough to save my cluthes.
question 1) I have the dash pod for the dash daq. Its not in there now but once I put it in is it easily removeable to take out flash card for updating?

question 2) I put my spartan straight in the truck out of the box from Rudy's. Are there any updates that I need to do or should it have the newest software/tune versions loaded already?

question 3) When i'm not towing, from all prespectives (fuel economy, tranny, egt, head gaskets) what is the bests daily driver tune to run?

question 4) When switching from 210 to 210 tow or to 250 do I need to do a trans relearn procedure? What is the best trans relearn procedure? I've read a couple different ways.

Answer 1 : The DashDAQ should be easily removed from the pod. It will be snug, but not overly snug.

Answer 2 : There are no updates for your tuner at the moment. It should be ready to go straight out of the box.

Answer 3: Typically the higher the tune, the higher the fuel mileage. All of the tunes on the basic level 1 license will keep your truck reliable as long as you respect your truck and keep it maintenanced well.

Answer 4: There is no need to do a relearn for the 210 tune, but the 210 TP and the 250 tunes have higher line pressure and a relearn should be done to get the most consistent shifts. The relearn for a stock TCM is in the sticky at the top of this forum page.
