Kem Tune for Blackmaxx

I have been thinking about getting a kem tune for my truck. I have heard the transmission tuning is much better than h&s'. Is this true? Also i will not be going with the 345 tune because that is just overkill for my needs. I would just like up to the 275 setting. Do these tunes come with the shift on the fly option?

IMO the transmission shifting is smoother than the H&S Tunes. There is no shift on the fly option with the KEM tunes.

I don't know how they compare to the H&S tunes but the 345 is a better running and shifting tune than the 275 tune

You wont be disappointed with the 275, I use the 275 as my dd and track tune. I know the 345 shifts smooth and a bunch of people use it as their dd. I have raced a 345 and it is faster, but my concerns are over the increased cylinder pressure and the longevity of the truck. The 275 is perfect for my setup, just my opinion

I've ran the Spartan 310 since it was released up until the KEM 345 came out and now its my daily driver and favorite tow tune, all on a stock tranny. The 345 has lower egts, BP, and boost than any of the other race tunes (on my truck anyway)
