Exclamation HELP stuck Spartan upload 275??

Bought the 275 tune today and started loading it tonight per instructions. I am 45 minutes in and it's stuck on "checking reflash image 25%"

What the hell do I do now? Was running the 250, don't know wether to cancel or what? Anyone know?

Updated to add that I've hit cancel and am trying to reload tunes... It has advanced past the point where it was stuck so hopefully it will load!

Did everything load up okay?

If not, call the office at 10:00 A.M. EST and talk with Mick.

828-606-3263

ON EDIT - I just realized it is Friday and the office is not open tomorrow. Email Mick at tech@spartandieseltech.com if you are still having issues!

Yeah, thanks for checking in Jeff.

Not sure what happened? It got stuck checking the reflash image which was fortunate because apparently it had not started to alter the ECM yet. Just got paranoid there for a bit...took the plunge and hit cancel and it allowed me to reload.

Yes, you can cancel during that process. Beyond that point, never cancel.

Glad you got it going! Enjoy!!!

I already did enjoy a bit during the transmission relearn. For only an additional 25 it sure seems like more! Thing throws you back in your seat and absolutely goes into a whole new level when it shifts into 3 or 4th at around 55MPH... its insane!

The shifts to me seem very similar to the 250, they will smooth out as I drive it more too.... the 2nd to 3rd shift is pretty firm but I imagine thats because of the torque being generated at those RPM's it needs to be.

Your feeling the torque converter lock-up after the 3-5 shift probably. The 275 tune has a more aggressive lock-up than the 250 tune, which is also why it seems so much stronger.
