How Many Miles Do You Have With Your Programmer/Tuner?

just thought this would be helpful for those of us who are torn between the different programmers and tuners out there. So, post up the miles you have put on your truck while running your H&S, Spartan, SCT, etc. I put a lot of miles on my truck. Like 25k per year, so this thread will most likely be the deciding factor for me...if it gets a lot of responses. Also, please include if you have had any problems or not in that mileage log while running the programmer. Thanks

I've had 3 different tunes on my truck, first tuned it at about 200 miles. It's got about 48k miles on it now, and only spent about 3-5k miles without a tune on it.

PM me for details, I'm not touting all my calibration info off on a public forum.

Almost 34,000 Spartan tuned miles for me. Only problem is it needs an EGR valve, and I need to figure out why my coolant is suddenly disappearing.

I've got 85,000 on my 08 70,000 tunned with the 275 normally and 310 occasionally with no problems to date. The only thing that has happened is I had a IC boot blow off this morning. Terrible feeling. I pull a 9000 lbs trailer daily for work and it pulls amazing. Can get enough of the 6.4 Spartan tunned. Other modds are 5" flopro and S and B intake. 35 X 12.50 R17 and leveling kit

That is what scares me about spartan tuning. Makes me more and more point towards H&S or just normal XRT tuning.

bought truck with 18,000 put black maxx "hot damn" tune on immediately. 36000 yesterday with one transmission overhaul. the tranny was redone at 30000 and fixed under warranty probably because I spent a $1000 the day before for their full 30000 mile service and it happened on the way home from that tune up. I made no attempt at hiding the black maxx or dpf delete. If they were going to charge me for the repair I would have gone with a built tranny but I can't complain. I feel that will need to happen in the near future though and I can't wait to go built. I'm even thinking of buying one now for when it does go i'll be ready for a quick recovery as it's my dd. I love the H&S tunes with the ability to detune on the fly. It's dangerous driving in the rain on the hot tune witch was dyno'd at 556 rwhp 1200 rwtq. Once I get a built tranny I plan on going for a 12 sec 1/4 mile and possibly adding nitrous for some 11 sec slips

I don't think my coolant loss has anything to do with Spartan.
