2008 6.4 F350 Spartan Tuned, DPF Deleted, Which is Best Tune?
Truck is paid for and used for DD and farm labor. I bought the spartan because I was sick of the DPF junk and fuel mpg issues. I really didn't buy the tuner because I wanted more power, but because I want to TAKE CARE OF MY TRUCK and get the best MPG possible. I have right at 75K miles.
I don't want to harm the truck's engine, tranny or head gaskets and such, but would like to know what (as my truck is all stock) is the best tune for mpg, DD, and towing tractors/hay and such?
Are these tunes bad for the stock transmissions, engines, electronic fuel injection, and any other stock systems? If so, what MODs should I invest in?
I don't really want to spend any more money, as I'm not racing, 4x4ing, or other stuff. I'm a 40 year old family guy that farms and ranches. I like to take care of my stuff and see that it last a LONG time. I miss our old 7.3 farm truck.
Just looking for the best advice.
My Spartan tuner ranges all the way to the 350 hp, I think. I have it tuned to 310 now, as I am trying to figure out best fuel mileage. But, it is quick on the throttle response. Not very smooth in the pasture checking cattle.
