Programmer options

I have been looking at my options for a programmer. I have been reading a lot
of reviews and really like the Sparatan. My only problem with it is the time it
takes to change the programs. I was wonder if there are any programmers that
you can change "On the fly" and what are the best. Thanks for all help.

You can change the H&S programmers on-the-fly. They are one of the best options available for the 6.4L and the only tuners that have that type of adjustability besides Bully Dog.

I have no problem with my setting on my programer. I tow at the max setting without a problem and benefit from the max setting when empty. The higher setting of 114 HP is not practical for me so I don't need more then 80HP setting.

I don't see why I would need to shift on the fly, and besides programers that program the computer are known to be the best method. Shift on the fly usualy never program the shifting and transmission coordination is very important.

You know this is the 6.4 section, right?

To the OP: If you have any specific Spartan questions, feel free to PM or email me.

You are going to see the best fuel mileage with higher tunes.
