6.4 Spartan with Suncoast

Quick question guys.. I am currently getting a suncoast transmission and suncoast torque converter installed in my 2010 F-250.. I have done the EGR delete, DPF/CAT delete and afe cold air intake. With the new tranny and everything, what is the highest tune I should run without risking breaking anything else that is still stock? Thanks for any help!

Plenty of people run the 310hp tune with a stock truck.

So I would say you will be fine running a the same with the lovely new tranny.

I recommend that you do head studs in the near future though. You should be okay for a little while though

its around $3500 job with parts and labor. So yeah its a little pricey. So I suggest you do lots of reading and do it yourself.

It would be around $800 for studs and HG but make sure you use OEM Ford factory HG

Haha yea.. I have been running on the 250 tune pretty hard which is why I'm gettin a new tranny lol I might just leave it on that and occasionally bump up to 275 every now and then. Maybe the head gaskets and everything will hang around with me a little longer lol
