I run H&S and have had zero issues. Seems to be the best for the money. I would consult the rather large thread which covers this topic and many other threads on this as well.

ive had both , and as for tuning spartan was good on the 6.4's, customer service was subpar , and shifted HARD.
H&S tuning is also good, smoother tranny shifting and service is amazing .And they have shift on the fly , so no more parking in a parking lot for 20 minutes too tune your truck
just my $0.02

matty, I think you'll find that almost everyone will agree our customer service has come a LONG way since hiring more crew. Likewise, our newest software update contains shifting that is much tamer for daily driving that it ever has in the past- virtually all of our user feedback has confirmed this.

I have them both, H&S is what I prefer. Feel free to give me a holler if youd like to compare them.

Ditto what he said. I have run both and taking out the customer service aspect (which IMO H&S wins hands down) you will have a lot more options available to you with the H&S tuner. You can spend a full day reading the different opinions about all of the tuners available just on this site. Happy reading.

I bought a used spartan and i love it. The customer service with spartan is GREAT. You can't shift on the fly like the H&S but i just cant see how that is good on your tranny or truck at that.
