KEM tunes on H&S Mini Maxx

thinking about ordering the KEM chip with the tunes from 50hp all the way to 345tune
just wanted to get some comments on how the tunes are with shifting and power?

the way a tune treats my tranny is way more impt to me that if it will run a 12 second 1/4 mile so what do yall think about it

I got the 345 tune about a month or two ago and it was the best $ ive spent on my truck since ive bought it. IMO KEM has the best tuning on the market hands down...

I cant say enough about my 345 tune, it is perfect DD.

oh eight f-250 tuned by Spartan & Kem

All you will have to do is swap sd cards and then reload the tuning file into your truck.

I think I am going to do this myself. I would like to have all those ranges of tunes instead of just 4.

I think it will be worth the money.

Just got to columbia sc from my home in central fl.Ran the kem 345 tune the whole way and couldn't be happier. 487 miles on 29 gallons of fuel. Truck ran awesome. Awesome pulling power at 75 mph without down shifting. This tune is well worth the money. By the way proud dad, I am up here to see my son graduate from basic at ft jackson.
