You have to make sure you update it with the latest firmware for it to read boost right, and if you do that along with the update config file from Spartan the gauges will be all set up for you, including boost.

As far as actual HP numbers I have no idea. It don't snap your neck but.....It feels good.

I would hold off on the update for now....theres an issue with the latest firmware and returning your truck to stock....they are working on it but personally I would just keep the firmware that Spartan had us download the last time, and not use the check web for updates.

Really? Matt posted a thread a couple days ago that the latest 1.3.5 firmware was out and not to worry about the past warnings and that we could use the check web for dates to find the firmware........

Yes really.....I have talked to Matt about this as of yesterday, and nutty Professor also said theres an issue with the new firmware...posted it at Spartans forum.

So yes....PERSONALLY I would hold off on the latest update.
