Spartan vs H&S, opinions please

I have been reading a lot of different post about tuners and such and am curious if anyone has tried both of these tuners and what their opinion is on both. I know not a lot of people cannot drop a couple grand just for kicks but just curious the pros and cons of each, issues experienced, etc. This is not really a small purchase and I am just trying to make the best educated decision before I pull the trigger.

I will also add how invaluable this forum is. I have learned more about my truck by reading this forum than I would of ever had just owning/driving.

Thanks for the input, now let's hear some experiences please!

Apparently you didn't read enough. This topic has been beaten to death..

Since 2007 I have had 4 Ford trucks. I have run H&S on my last three trucks for what it's worth. Had spartan on my first truck for short period of time before dumping it.

I am expecting some passionate reponses too! For me that will probably help make the choice a little easier. Thanks for your input. I have read that the customer service and ease of use is what sets H&S apart.

I have probably read nearly every thread on every powerstroke site concerning this topic, so if I, and I am sure other people, still have questions then its apparently not dead enough yet. Not everyone has owned 4 PS's and haven't had the vast experience and knowledge of tuners that you have. That's why I wanted to know about experiences from individuals, like yourself, and what made one better than the other.

So I apologize if this topic is so dreadful and annoying that you don't want to help inform the uninformed of which you prefer.

I prefer the ease of use of the H&S tuner/tunes and the ease of install and updates. Great shifting, tons of smooth usable power, and the customer service at H&S is awesome.

The few issues I have had with H&S were resolved quickly and efficiently. No complaints here.

Thanks brother, that is very helpful. I have been leaning more towards the H&S because of those reasons. I had done a little research on the Spartan and they look great on their website but I haven't heard a whole lot from them concerning the 6.7.

I hope to hear from some other people about their Spartan tuned trucks, too!

Thanks again.

You should read the 6.4 stuff on tuners. That will help you a lot in making your choice.

I will check it out. I know I will probably spend a lot of time over there. I wish there was that much depth for the 6.7! But I'm sure it will before long.

Thanks for your help!

Spartan has a great tuner they make more power than H&S. Customer support is great never had a problem with them. From what I have read Spartan tuned trucks seem to shift better with the higher tunes. I really don't think you could go wrong with either tuner. I think a lot of guys are running H&S because of the price difference of the tuners. Also it use to be that if you got a Spartan you had to pay a extra for the Warhammer tune, it is no longer that way.
