Help

Hey guys so I've got my exhaust on now and have my Spartan installed. When I did the install I loaded the 210 race tune because I didn't wanna do a trans relearn that night but I still haven't changed the tune. I've got to pull a load later and was wondering if it's okay to pull with the 210 race or do I need to switch to the 210TP before I hook up?

Thanks!

Thanks. I wasn't as concerned about the power so much as I was with the transmission file on that tune. That amount of power and pretty much stock shifting worried me a bit. I don't need to be puttin a new trans in... I still have the dealer temp tag on the truck!

Well I didn't want to load any of the higher horse tunes because I don't have my intake installed yet but also we were goin out shortly after I got done. I didn't want to have the trans tryin to relearn with 4 other people in the truck thowin em around, ya know? My concern was the shifts not being firm enough on the 210 race tune since I don't think they change much in that file from the stock file. But hey she pulled like a beast compared to the few times I pulled before deleting. Completely worth it

Your trans has to relearn everytime you swap a tune. Doesn't matter what tune you are coming from or to.

With the Spartan from what I've gathered with reading and talkin to the guys that it the 210 race and under is so much like stock that the relearn was next to nothin. I honestly couldn't tell the slightest difference in shifting. The 210 tow tune and up have much firmer shifts so the relearn process quite a bit different and doin the trans relearn is a must.... If that makes sense? But I do understand when you load a new tune it does relearn

I'm not sure what you're towing, but i find that if i use the 275 my foot starts bouncing when the trailer hits bumps. That and cattle move around like water so its hard to maintain a steady throttle with such a touchy tune. I always load the 210TP tune for that reason alone when pulling. Only takes 10-15 minutes.

Cant say that i've ever loaded the regular 210, i never thought the shifting was that bad on the 275.
