Spartan DPF delete vs. Stock

Can someone tell me for sure the difference between the two. I'm wondering if everything is the same like tranny shifting etc but just turning off the dpf regen or are there other changes as well? Some say the transmission is still tuned and others say its not tuned.

Yes, the TCM is tuned with our tuning. The 210 and under tunes (except the 210 tow) shift similar to stock with slightly higher line pressure, but there is still transmission tuning done.

Ok thanks. I was hoping everything else was left the same. Not to big of an issue but my truck has a weird clunk sensation when going from 1st to second on the Spartan tranny tune while the truck is cold. Once it warms up everything seems to be ok. The funny thing is it doest do it much at all with factory programming. Also, on occasion i get the rev then slam thing when coasting down to a light once it comes out of gear (25mph or so). Also will do it when entering a turn at a lower speed. Doesn't do this often but when it does it wakes you up and i'm worried it might damage something. I drive my truck very easy but hated the dpf so decided to do a delete kit.

The only fix I know of for the rev/slam is adding a little fluid. I see it a hell of a lot less with my Sun Coast and deep pan than I did when I had the stock tranny and pan. I can count on 1 hand how many times it has done it in the past 17,000 miles I have had the Sun Coast.
