how many are running H&S tunes? in torn on what to order

ive been reading about kem and spartan but havent seen much of h&s tunes. i have heard that the spartan/kem tunes adjust motor and trans parameters, does h&s do the same. ive read the dyno results that H&s claims for their 250 tune and its pretty impressive. is the fuel milage comperable between the 3 companies? anyone had good/bad luck with h&s?

20,000 miles on my H&S Black Maxx. Love it! You can tune the motor and trans. H&S gives you the capability to adjust the tune on the fly.

I also have had great luck with my mini maxx. mpg for me is around 18, thats back country roads and city, i almost never see the hwy, but i imagine it would be better there. h&s has shift on the fly and no need to reinstall the sensors in the delete pipe, no other tuner has that capability to my knowledge. Kem will have h&s tuning before next month.

I am getting about 17-18 on the highway, averaging 15-16 daily. My highway driving is at 75-80mph and that hurts it I am sure.

yeah i just talked to mike at kem, i think im gonna wait a week or 2 and get the minimaxx with a 310 race tune, i think the 345 might be too hard on a stock tranny, do you guys agree?

There are options for the engine power, transmission shift firmness and torque converter lockup. So, you look for a file that gives the engine and transmission combination you like and download that file.

Thanks i will look at their website. I guess the 55 mph lockup should work well right?
