Spartan Users

I'm currently sitting stock height on stock 20s and stock goodyears. I'm running the Spartan 210 and 250 w/ exhaust setup as in my sig. Which tune do you (Spartan users) like better and why? 210 or 250?

Personally I like to power of the 250 10x more than the 210 BUT the shifting is something terrible compared to the 210...Maybe you Spartan veterans will have a solution for this.

The 250 really doesn't shift that bad IMO. But that is coming from someone that runs the 275 Daily.

Agreed. 250 shifts like butter compared to the 275. Just got my 300 and I love it, shifts are a little easier than the 275. Overall driveability is better too

Then something has to be wrong with mine. The shifts from 1-2 and 2-3 are extremely hard. I put over 200 miles on the tune this weekend with all types of driving and no matter how I drive it still shifts very hard.

Do a couple of wide open throttle runs through the gears.

So is that a good thing? b/c it just doesn't feel like it can be. At least not compared to stock shifting

If you had stock line pressure on a race tune, the clutches would burn up in no time. The added line pressure is keeping your clutches alive. If you don't like the way it shifts, I would suggest running the 210 tune.
