I bought my truck Jan 19,2012 in NJ and deleted it Jan 20,2012 with 300 miles on the odometer from the trip back home. I went with a Spartan tuner based off my knowledge of how well Spartan and the 6.4's worked together.
Lots of tunes to choose from
200hp warhammer tune
CEL (P2073) on warhammer tune
Can't turn off TPMS
Can't calibrate for different tire sizes
It gave the truck good power although it wasn't very linear at times. While driving up hills the truck would often downshift and boost 30+psi to maintain speed. The warhammer tune saw the best mpg on my truck, but it also had the harshest shifting.
For towing I tow a 8.5x24 enclosed car trailer fully loaded around 9k and occasionally pull a bumper pull 30+' toy hauler weighing 11l roughly. At the recommendation of Spartan, I towed on the 120 tune as they told me that was the highest tune that was safe to tow on. I noticed much of the same when going up hills as I did when I was unloaded.
Shift on the fly tunes
Possibility for MCC and Custom tunes
Ability to calibrate TPMS & Tire size
Limited Boost(safe for tubro)
No 200hp tune(have to pay extra for MCC & Custom tune vs Spartan's included warhammer)
Just installed the H&S Mini Maxx on my truck 10/8/13 and havent had a chance to drive it much today other than around town. I will be completing a 200 mile one way trip tomorrow that I have previously completed many times while I was Spartan Tuned. The trip includes town, country backroad, mountain roads, and highway driving This will serve as my real test drive for opinions.
In the past I averaged 17.5mpg on the same trip on the warhammer tune so I will report my feelings on the H&S as well as my fuel average after tomorrow night.
