So I got a chance to answer my phone this time when Matt called. He took time out of his day and answer all of my questions. Now I just have to wait for it come in. I think I will enjoy the new tunes. Anyone got a idea on what tune i should try first?

If you plan on towing heavy, I would get the 75, or 150. The 250 tune shifts hard, but you will love the power. Just remember, there are no built in safeties on the 250 tune. There are on the 210, it defuels when reaching temps from about 1425-1475*. Have fun. You will need to load the newest config file and you may want to be sure it has the latest firmware update on it. It's DashDAQ-1.4.0-1219. If you watch the start-up screen it will list the firmware version during boot-up. After you get it, if you have any problems, let me know and I'll walk you through it... You may also want to get an aftermarket intake system, like AFE, or S&B. I have the AFE, but if I had it to do over again, I would go with S&B.

The Spartan tune work great, I think you will be pleasantly surprised.I have the 75, 150, 210, and 250...Haven't even tried the 75 and 150 yet in the nearly 3 months I've owned the DD. Love the 210 and 250, I use the 250 as my daily driver now and have only towed 10k# on the 210. No problems here.

I would not hesitate to run the 250 tune with a new truck! I am almost at 6,000 miles, and have had the Spartan tune for ~3,000 miles, and all my other mods with ~100 miles. (except for the trans! Mine was junk from day 1)
