I dont know about the spartan tunes, i used an sct before i deleted my dpf and there was a noticeable difference for sure. If milage is your goal, just make the plunge and delete. my truck constanly was in regen and milage averaged worst becuse of it, two to three times per tank. if your trip to work is short its even worst. Talk to your local diesel perfomance shop and find your self a mod friendly dealer and take the plunge. Regen is hard enough on these trucks, I wouldnt drive it tunned with the dpf too long imo

Two comments about buying a used tuner:

#1 - It will not work on your truck until you get a license from Spartan that is specific to your truck.

#2 - It had better be really, really cheap because the licensing fees are pretty expensive.

Lots of guys have made the mistake of buying a "used" tuner thinking it would work on their truck, then had to pony-up for new tunes.

Unless you're saving significant bucks after factoring in the cost of the "used" tuner + the new license, I'd pick-up the phone and order a new unit from Spartan.

Actually, the licensing fees have changes and are around $100 if I recall correctly. Jeff in post 2 can comment further. One thing to make sure is that the previous truck has in fact been returned to stock, otherwise it's a bear to transfer.

I believe, if the truck is returned to stock and sold to another person the "unlock" fee is $325.00 plus the cost of the tunes.

If the truck isn't returned to stock, then the fee is $699.00 plus tunes.
