Tranny tuning

Reasy to oreder a tuner, considering Sct, Spartan, H&S. I know the all open up the engine and delete the dpf. What about tranny tunning, which is better for my 2010 6.4, Thanks.

We have proven transmission tuning. My stock transmission held up to extreme abuse for 46,000 miles and was still drivable. Converter was getting weak and I had a consistent flare in the 2-3 shift. I abused the hell out of it though, so I expected it to go even sooner than it did. I know literally hundreds of other people running our tuning with stock transmissions that have held up 25-50,000 miles and still going strong. There are quite a few with 50,000+ tuned miles with no issues on their stock tranny.

to the O.P....ive been running spartan for about 20,000 mi and i have to agree with this statement, my tranny is holding up fine, its taken abuse on the track, offroad, daily driving like an idiot, etc. the tuning is phenomenal, spartan has great tranny tuning that will make your tranny LAST, and good power to go along with it
