Programmers

I am going to buy a new programmer this week and i would like to know what is better?? The H and S or Spartan?? I hear with the Spartan you can not adjust items like the tires and such. Can you do it on either and im trying to keep my budget in mind also.

If you have any specific Spartan questions feel free to PM or email me.

To answer your question above, we can adjust for tire size, just not with the tuner itself. We can make you 3 custom tire size tunes for $100.

So you have to buy the programmer for $1250, and them $100 on top of that. Does it adjust any of the shift point or anything like that??

Both H&S and Spartan have excellent offerings, you cant make a bad choice either way. H&S has the 3 different tuners which is tough to compete with for other tuner manufacturers since they cover most budgets. The XRT Pro is an excellent tuner for those looking for a DPF delete tuner on a budget or for those that dont want/need gauges. I think the Mini Maxx is the best value on the market, all things considered. The Black Maxx is also a great option with a larger screen, but you are getting up into the high range for pricing. The Spartan DashDaq is a great setup as well with big monitor, but is priced quite a bit higher than the others mentioned. Feel free to give me a holler if you have any questions, we have quite a bit of experience with the H&S and Spartan tuners.
