Spartan 6.7 owners

I have sent several PM's to owners that I have researched on the board by searching threads etc and have not received a response. I assume you are all unhappy with the tuners or could not care less about responding to someone with questions. I have a few questions that when I have searched through forums and company websites etc, have not been answered.

*Does the Spartan monitor and display TQ and HP like the H&S?

*Are you satisfied with your Spartan 6.7 tunes? Overall Spartan satisfaction?

*How is the drivetrain management on the Spartan? I heard there was another release coming out but it seems Spartan owners do not post often.

*What parameters are monitored and can be changed by Spartan (TPMS etc)?

*Any experience with the H&S and the Spartan on the 6.7 for an overall review of what you liked better?

Thanks in advance. -Steve

From what I've all read in the last couple months. I'm gonna go with H&S. I'm sure the Spartan is just as good but H&S seems to have more of a presence on the boards and more improvements more often. In my mind the only thing Spartan has over H&S is a fancy color screen. So once I get back to work I'll be buying a Minimaxx. Just my 2cents

I think you will be happy with the H & S. They seem to be on top of their game and update anytime someone finds a problem. Once KEM's tunes come out I'm sure they will be even better. I am very happy with my mini maxx and I think you would be as well. Also my 2 cents.

My dad runs the Spartan warhammer tune in his 6.7 and he loves it, they have great customer service as well. Mick has been very helpful with everything we needed. And the new updates just came out too!

I'm hoping for good mpg numbers driving to Colorado with my mini max. I do think the Spartan looks really cool and it would match my nav screen but for the money difference I couldn't justify it

The money difference is not all that much since you need to spend a $100 for an unlock from H&S. I'm leaning towards the H&S for the first time. The 6.7 Spartan owners are pretty quiet.
