Anyone run both H&S and Spartan?

I'm currently running spartan tuning and I do like my tunes. That being said it's not perfect, I throw a code(p2073 even after the updated war hammer tunes) boost ramps up extremely quickly on all my tunes, and my mpgs could be better considering how I drive.

Have the opportunity to pick up a H&S delete tuner. Thinking about trying and comparing the two.

Thoughts?

Has anyone had both? I am thinking of switch to h&s. My spartan shifts erratically. Even after my custom tune from mick.

I haven't ran both, but you can't go wrong with the H&S tuner. I have 3 different Custom MCC tunes from a few vendors on here. 1 has the best shifting, one has the best power, the other has the best MPG. So I have pretty much settled on 1 vendors trans tuning, and 2 vendors motor tunes, one for city(fastest) one for on the road(MPG). All of the companies that are heavily modifying these trucks, IE dual fuelers, aftermarket turbos, nitrous, and what not seem to be running the H&S tuners due to their versatility and easy tunability, also due to the fact that there is so much support out there not from just H&S, but from a lot of independent tuners as well.

Highdrum so you are able to load a transtune and then a different city or road tune to the motor? Can you change on the fly between the motor tunes?

You can load trans tunes and engine tunes independent of one another. I just the same trans tune all the time, but when I drive long distances, I load up my CFD tuning(I know OMG! CFD! the actually have the best MPG tune) and for horsepower I use a different company who I was told do keen on the D/L due to work load volume. But I have to load them, cant switch on the fly, takes about 10-12 mins to switch tunes.

I was just thinking about doing the same thing for when I tow. Normally I run on the SPE hot x tune. But its not a tow tune by any means. So I was thinking of keeping an additional custom engine tune on the SD card so I can switch to that if I'm going to tow my gooseneck trailers. Then switch back to the spe engine tune when running empty.

I say go with H&S and you won't be disapointed. Lots of custom tune choices and shift levels on the fly
