Spartan vs H&S throttle response

Hey all ... I'm sure this has already been covered but I couldn't really find any concrete info. I'm getting ready to pull the trigger on the whole tuning/intake/exhaust and I'm wondering which one has better throttle response? One thing I don't like about my 6.4 is it feels really sluggish due to the throttle sensitivity. I know if I lay into it it well get up and go, but I prefer to just give a little input and get sucked into the seat. My LLY Duramax was super touchy and I loved it.

My old man has a 6.7 Cummins with H&S and he can adjust the throttle response. Can we do that on the 6.4 as well?

I'd love to hear your opinions and experiences.

Spartan, turn it on the 310. That should be "touchy" enough for anyone's needs

Spartan on the 310 is very touchy and will definitely set you back in the seat.

I think if you update that HS the throttle sensitivity will be gone. Not that hard to ramp up the ramp rate in tuning and can be done. If I were you, I'd go with the HS just to have the option for custom tuning.
