Thinking about making the switch

I finally found a buyer for the SCT!

I am wondering, which Spartan tune are most of you running? I am hoping to get the Spartan in hopes of finding a tune that will give me good driveability(smooth shifting), good mileage, and more power. I am curious what kind of mileage you guys are getting, and on what Spartan tune?

I really wish that there was a good combo of the 1.22 and the 1.26 tune!! I am hoping that one of you can tell me that's exactly what the Spartan is.
Which one of the Spartan tunes is comparable to the SCT 1.22??

I am running the 210 tune for the time being. I am seeing 19 - 19.5 mpg mixed hwy/city driving, have yet to get it on the road for a long haul. The power is rediculous over stock, especially at hwy speeds. Guys running the 250 are reporting +3 to +4 mpg over the 210, gonna have to get me that one for Christmas! When I first loaded the tune, the shifts were FIRM, but the trans will learn your driving style and smooth out if you baby it. I hear the 250 shifts pretty hard, but just look at the posts here and on Spartan's forum, the firm shifting is a good thing as the trans is actually shifting instead of slipping. You won't be disappointed in power or mileage improvements!

For perfect drivability, and good mileage the 210, for TONs or power, better mileage, but abrupt shifting the 275

I don't think you can go wrong either way.

As far as the SCT, it won't be long now. You'll see some very cool things just around the corner. Hardware options and software.
