........well I guess its not there fault that I have no self control...lol

Thanks to 08stroker250's constant posting about the power possibilites from the 310/TCM upgrades I have already been very close to purchasing these items. Then today while talking to Aaron at Rudy's Diesel about a TOTALLY different subject I happen to jokingly ask why he hasn't got a TCM for me yet. Well he happened to have one sitting there and of course I couldn't resist and ordered it along with the tune revisions and 310. :doh:

I know this is a good thing, but I gotta get a handle on this. This truck has been getting modded faster than any Mustang I have ever owned!!!

(I own a high performance automotive shop that primarily deals with late model Mustangs, for those who don't know)

Anyway, thanks again guys! Its going to be another long week waiting for parts for get here from back east! :drinking4:

Dyno numbers will follow shortly after getting everything in! :icon_ford:

LOL! Seems to be the case!

I did fine with "mildly" modding my 7.3 and 6.0 that I had before this truck, but now things are just getting silly. :crazy:

cool to see another californian here. I am waiting on my 310 and TCM. Should have gone through other sources, sounds like they had the TCM's in stock. Spartan was waiting for a shipment.

May I ask, what is the TCM?
It is the transmission control module. Spartan can now modify them to make the tranny work optimally.

Let me be the first to say :ORG welcome:

The TCM is a transmission control module that has been specially modified to increase clutch holding power in the transmission in the 6.4l automatic (5r110). It works along with custom tuning produced by a company called Spartan Diesel (who actually does the modding of the TCM's too). It's the newest thing in the 6.4l world right now. I just got mine installed today. The early trucks (called job 1 trucks) that were made in 2007 have a some-what crappy TCM. They improved it with the later trucks. The modified TCM will help any truck, but it helps the early ones the most. That is why I got one. Mine was built in april of 2007.

Welcome again. You'll love this addiction.

No kidding.... I've worked and waited over 10 years before I could honestly afford a truck like this. And you have one at 17? WTF Im 32... my first truck was 1977 scout 2 w/rotted rocker panels and floor boards that I paid $200 bucks for. your lucky kid... but also right... these parts ain't cheap :nod: I gotta go to back to Iraq just to afford to buy them :doh:

Just wait, pretty soon you'll be wanting diesel in your morning coffee instead of cream.
