Spartan update?

Posted this on Spartan forum but thought I would post here incase someone see's this one first.

"Ok so 2 weeks has passed since the latest "the update should be out this week" post.
Any news? What problems are being encountered that are delaying the release of updates?

I am anxious to see a 275 tune with softer shift points, am sitting at 250 until the release!"

I have been out of town....and Spartan is not falling apart. Give me a break. It's amazing the things people come up with and start on forums.

The update has been postponed because we are waiting for feedback on test files sent out to correct exhaust back pressure issues with several of the large tunes

I can't wait to see the 275 after this update. Jeff you saw my log. Was hitting 85.1 EBP at 1/4 throttle. Been driving the 250 since, hits around 40 at 1/4, but I hit 82.5 at full throttle with 250 yesterday when I mashed it.

Jeff,
I just got back last weekend. I will try to run the little test you outlined for me over e-mail to check the sensor before I leave again this weekend. Pretty sure the sensor is OK as I can hear the air puking back out the intake.

Thanks for taking the time to make sure it is right prior releasing the update. I am one of the ones looking forward to it, but don't want it to come out and not fix all the issues.

Its funny you say that because I recently went back to the 250 tune for the first time since I did the v2 update and the EBP is a little higher than it use to be. I am seeing right about 80 full throttle where It was about 68-70 with the older 250. Light to part throttle seems the same as it always was.
