Question for H&S users

Does the H&S allow for tire size calibration, boost readings, and egt readings (this one I'm sure about though)? Spartan has once again given me the runaround on when we will be able to have these capabilities with their tuner, which makes me even further regret purchasing their product. thinking about swapping over to H&S, and taking the Spartan apart and using it as something useful and beneficial to me truck......an ashtray!

When in doubt, mash on it....and don't stop till you smell sh!t or hear glass break!

You can adjust for tire size but i think only a couple sizes larger. It will read egts but only if you buy the egr block off plates. No egts if you are running dpf on.

He is correct about the tire size. There are factory limitations in the ABS module for tire size values. We are working to get around them, but have not released a solution yet. Currently you can adjust from 31" to 34".

As for the EGT readings, the H&S Product will need to have a probe installed into the exhaust manifold to get proper data. There are some tricky things we do with the ECU and monitoring functions to enable the EGT option. We offer a kit to help with this if you need it. H&S Part number 302202.

Hope that helps!

I already have the h&s full egr delete kit and probe installed. its just that even with all this in place, the tuner I am currently running can't seem to do anything with the information the probe is sending to it

When in doubt, mash on it....and don't stop till you smell sh!t or hear glass break!

Yes, the hardware and software have to be a matched set. Not only do you need the pyrometer installed, but the monitoring device and engine calibration will need to be modified to accept and translate the correct data.

In all honesty, I think Spartan will take care of you. They are a stand up company and have some great products. They may just be a little behind for one reason or another at getting a new update finalized. These new trucks are a whole different animal. Calibration files have nearly tripled in size and data content over the past few ECU changes. It makes for a nightmare on the programming end of things.

I am sure they will in time, but it would be nice to get the same exact explanation from them instead of the vague response I have been getting for the past several months. if they would be honest with me and tell me they are having hell with it, I would be more apt to install a pyro and wait them out a few more months. but they have been beating around the bush and that loses my respect more than anything.
