Arrow Spartan Tuning Files Update

The long anticipated update is finally available! Matt got everything updated to the website over the last 2 days and Mick got the links up this afternoon/evening. To update your tuning files, log-in to the website and go to "Update Tuner" on the right side of your screen under "User Menu." If anyone has any difficulties with this, please email Mick at tech@spartandieseltech.com. Also, I am available to answer any questions that I can here in this thread, through PM, or through email.

What this update includes:

*275HP Tune added to Level 1 tuning (free for all users)
*350HP Tune added to Level 3 tuning (free for all level 3 users)
*File repair to allow EGR cycling with no EGT sensors
*3.55 Gear ratio converter lock scheduling lowered to address late lockup issues
*Recalibrated shifting on 250HP, 275HP, 300HP, and 310HP tunes for more comfortable daily driving (on all Job build and year models)
*No-EGR files have been added for all users, both standard and Spartan TCM, for ALL tuning levels
*All 250HP, 275HP, 300HP, 310HP, and 350HP have cold weather surging corrected, entirely.
*Please note that this update is fully compatible with the latest Ford flash update.
*This update will only work with tuners that have already been updated to the "V2" software. If your tuner has not been updated, just contact our tech support and we can walk you through it.


Once again, if you have any questions regarding this update, please let us know!

Thanks,

Spartan Diesel Technologies

So if all my info is already on file do I still need to send an Email? Or do I just download the updated database? I am pretty sure after a re-read that you only need to email if your Dashdaq is not up to date V2.

Correct. If your DashDAQ is already V2, you can go straight to the website and update your tuning files. Be sure to follow instructions closely!

would figure. I just blocked my truck in the shop with a torn apart jeep thinking I had no reason to drive it for a few days... Good to hear everything was figured out. To save me digging up old post. What was the deal with the 350 tune? Is it just too much for a stock fuel system? Or is it good on some trucks, not on others? Just too much for a stock trans?

Rail pressure is fine with the 350 tune. Maintains great. Our initial testing with the tune shows that it has both higher peak power and that it also has more power under the curve. It just doesn't show it at the track. I think transmission tuning had a lot to do with it in my case. I was running a standard transmission file with a SunCoast transmission.

I have not tested the latest 350 file yet, but I plan to soon.

Also, I would not run it too much on a stock transmission, that's for sure.

I would also like to add that those guys with stock TCM's and a SunCoast, Matt is working on a batch of files for you. He will be adding it to the database soon.

Thanks for the info. I just loaded the 300 for the first time yesterday, runs nice, nice shifting and it must be a clean tune, doesnt smoke any where near the 310. Has anyone run the 300 on the dyno to see how it compares to the 310? Thanks, Mike

I did dyno with the 300, but it was a test file. The production file should be a little stronger. My truck did 540 with it on 35's, a nasty intake filter, and a bad Air Dog filter. It's a solid 560-575 tune on a properly loaded dyno.

I would not recommend using it as a competition file though. EGT's seem to get a little hotter with it than the 310 at WOT. It is a super clean tune though.
