Anyone with a spartan.....

Want to trade me tuners for a while or drive my truck and let me drive yours? Getting pretty bored with the aftermarket here and thinking about switching tuners for the hell of it.

Well then let him run the Spartan and you run the H&S and let me know what you think. Sounds to me like a good deal for him.

I love my spartan truck runs great and shifts good to. I agree with you, the aftermarket just needs to come out with one single good turbo and then go from there.

My Spartan tuned truck runs and shifts good, but you can't monitor any of the important stuff with it, it costs too damn much to lack what it does, and the customer service is horrible due to them steadily giving excuses for it not doing what you need it to. but all in all, I guess it's my own fault for buying the damned thing

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

So how are you spartan guys holding up? How many miles do you have on the spartan? Any failures? I think I'm going to buy a spartan to see which one I like best, the sell the other one. Spartan and H&S are the only ones that really do DPF off tunning that have any kind of support. The rest of the guys are apparently terrified of the EPA or don't care....

But the thing that gets me is the other guys are loud and proud of the 6.4 deleted tunes, why the hell is it any different than the 6.7? Removing DPF on either not the same consequence???

I still have mine no problems so far. I think I have around 12k on mine running spartan. Truck feels strong and I have nothing but good things to say. The update helped out the trucks shifting with the war hammer and now it shifts great at low speeds. I haven't been running the high horse tunes lately because it's harvest season and I never known when I will have to tow so its easiest to just leave it on the low tune. If you do switch or try the Spartan I would really like to know what you think.

You're not thinking of switching are you? The nice thing about the h&S is that you can instantly turn the power down when you hook to a trailer. Being able to run KEM tunes i thought was going to be great but that was a total let down. The black maxx is a nice unit but some more aggressive tunes would bw nice.

If you lived a little closer I would say lets swap trucks for a little bit.
