All depends on how you drive it . I use it as my daliy driver tune and so do alot of others on here . Shifts are nice and smooth. not to firm like some race tunes H&S has . If you drive it like you stole it , it will last for awhile but be prepared to upgrade it , $$$$$ .

I second this statement. The tune has great power but to me shifts could be firmer if you were planning to race it so the tranny won't slip. Mine gets so smooth after easy driving it almost like stock, with double the power.

Nothing wrong with hammering on it once in awhile . these trannys are pretty tough in stock form . Alot of guys just upgrade the converter and go with that , drag racing , sled pulling , etc.

Your tranny will be fine as long as you aren't rapeing it off every street light (which I know is hard not to do) lol

oh eight f-250 tuned by Spartan & Kem

When I order the KEM 345, will it be sent via email? Also, im thinking about just getting the H&S KEM Special Edition SD card Product Details - KEM Performance, Inc., do you guys recommend me getting that over just the 345 tune?

Thank You
