300 tune for a DD tune if I am going to be on the highway a good bit during a week. 210 tune if I am going to be around town. I like the 210 because I live in a big city and it's such a clean tune on my truck.

Definitely the 300 tune for me. It shifts great, and has plenty of power for just about everything you want.

I like the 275. For me it's a happy medium between the 310 tune and the 250.

Hhmmm, seems the 250 is pretty popular. I've got a great idea that should boost sales for spartan or KEM if they were willing to do it. If they could and would issue what I would call a trial tune for consumers to try out for a day or two max that had a timer that would run out if the license wasn't purchased. Spartan could even pre-load the dashdaq with them that after loading would expire in 24 hrs if the license wasn't purchased. I bet H&S would do it....oh wait they give customers new tunes for free don't they?

310- Power is awesome, shifts are great. to touchy for city drivin

300- Power is smoothe, shifts are great. Do not like how the TC locks up!

275- Good overall tune. Enough power to beat a well tuned cummins and duramax imo.

250- Good power, shifts are awesome. Not smokey unless you hammer on it.

210- Very little smoke, good power. Throttle isnt as touchy as the others.

This is just my thoughts.
