Spartan tunes

I just got my programmer, and am wondering which tunes everybody is going with. I am not getting the 250 hp for now because I haven't put a CAI and exhaust on the truck- YET! I do alot of towing and don't want to have problems with exhaust temp, but I do want to get as good of fuel mileage as possible. Any input is appreciated!!!

Never tow with the 250HP tune, you'd be pushing it with the 210HP tune depending on what you towed, so the 150-75HP tune should be the max I would put on there while towing

They don't all come loaded. During the process of buying the DashDag you will let spartan know what three tunes you want, not including the 250 tune, it is extra.

For me I am getting 3-4MPG better (210 tune), and have a lot of power!!!!

Do some reading, there is a lot of info on the board about this subject.

Wow!!!!, yes you are right. I have read MANY of the post you have left, and often times I wish I had your experience and knowledge with the 6.4. The post I left was for laketimejv, who started the tread.

I was not taking any shot at you. I hope you don't think I was.

One can look at the number of posts (and truck)and can tell the knowledge base. I have not been trouble shooting people here. Again what I put was for the originator of the post. Sorry for any confusion.

Maybe I will just read more, and type less.
