Spartan Guys

Some questions for you. After seening my truck regen every 150-200 miles for the last 2 weeks, im sick and tired.

However, my questions may differ from the rest.

How is the axle wrap on the lifted trucks with the 210 tune?

How has the fuel mileage varied from the lower hp tunes to the higher?

any trans issues? i remember a thread about a tranny slipping on the 250 tune.

How many miles do you have on the tune now?

Depends, how high is the lift on your truck and is it done with blocks or a new spring pack?

My fuel mileage has gone up with the higher tunes, but anything is better than stock

I have heard about complaints with the 250 tune, but never slipped. Now did it shift hard, real hard? Hell yes it did, but thats how I want it

I have over 30K on my tunes

I was at 8" lift...had 7" blocks cause I did not want to lose the carrying capacity...and with the higher HP tunes it would have serious axle wrap, and hop.

I went up to a 10" lift and went with OUO traction blocks in the back and no more wrap, hop or anything.

I figured the wrap would suck. I had a 7.3L 96 PSD with 150 injectors and a chip and it wrapped up the 6" springs pretty bad. I have a 6" lift on the truck, the rear has 4.5" of block and 2" of add a leaf. I plan to go to the same bars as pahrump, just not right away. I dont plan to run the 250 tune either. the truck is the wifes DD. I am just looking to gain some mileage and play with it. That is why i asked about the lower hp tunes. with her driving it to work, i would probably run something in the 75-125 range daily and load the 210 to go dick off.

the 210 tune gets better mileage than the lower HP tunes, and from my reading and exp. the 250 tune gets about 2mpg better than the 210 tune...just food for thought.

I hear you on that one ......but Pahrump is right the mileage is better with the higher HP tunes, however to really gain the benefits of that, you need to leave the tune in so the truck can learn how you or your wife drives. By switching back and forth between tunes you won't get optimal performance out of the truck, you also run a bigger risk of frying one of the modules and then your really up a creek

I dont know about the modules...but switching often will not allow your truck to "learn" and I would venture to guess that most of the learning is the tranny....it really needs to learn how you drive with the new tune.

I would not switch things up all the time.
