i have h&s with kem tunes and i dont like the shifting. im about to try the h&s tuning and see if its better. but if i was you i would just go h&s with h&s tuning and save money or go spartan tuning. either way it will make your truck sick. also jeff from spartan ^^^ the guy that posted above is a great guy and will do you right. hope that helps.

Agreed^^ Kem is junk. H&S tunes are the truth. I can't speak for spartan but from what I've heard it's a great system. If you want more adjustability go with h&s tho. Shift on the fly is best

h&S with there tunes. I cant comment on the others, but the ones that come with it are pretty nice. shifts well. I read all the threads on here before i bought and for me the h&S was the best choice.

New to diesels, but not new to any other internal combustion engine. Have owned many tuners, but I would have to say H&S is pretty straight forward and user friendly. Just installed my Mini Max w/ H&S tunes two weeks ago and could not be more satisfied.
