hey guys i have been searching for awhile and maybe im not typing the right stuff but, my question is does spartan do tunes for the 6.0? and if they do do you just use the sct to load them on the truck or do you have to buy the phalanx? i went to there website and didnt really find much for the 6.0 is it only for the 6.4? im most likely going to get erics tunes but was curious about spartan for the 6.0. i have an sct x3 but no tunes yet any help would be awesome thanks!:icon_ford:

Matt used to write custom SCT tunes but doesn't have a licensing agreement with them anymore. I believe hes working on tuning for the 6.0's but it will be with the dashdaq setup just like with the 6.4's. I'm not sure what the progress is on that project, I'm sure others will be along that know more...

Why do you say it will burn up the FICM? I have been running the Aggressive Street for quiet some time and have no problems but this makes me worry...

I think I read that his tunes are out for the 6.0L dashdaq but I am not totaly sure.....and I have not tried the free tunes.
Since you already have the x3 I would go with erics tunes, I am really pleased with mine.

remember if you use the old free tunes from spartan they are more of a generic custom tune. It is not written for your specific mods.

Spartan does have thier tuning ready for the 6.0L. It is on the dashdaq format. I have run tunes from matt for quite a while. There are not many tuners that I haev not run tunes from. He may not have the 6.0L on his site yet, but if you already have the x3 I would give Eric or one of the other tuners a call. I am sure that any of them can take good care of you.

This is a totally BOGUS comment. SCT tuners don't do ANYTHING to the FICM. They're not CAPABLE of tuning the FICM. The recent MASS of FICM failures are due to the inductive heating flash Ford put out 2 years ago. It's been well documented. I don't know or care where you got your info but it's TOTALLY FALSE.

I had him take mine out too. I was running a borrowed FICM that had the buzz flash in it and it definitely made more difference in cold starts than the inductive heat flash did. I don't know what the winter time results will be, but that's what the block heater is for anyway.

I've run spartan tunes since I got my xcal 2 they are free. I'm looking at getting a few tunes and depending onif I can get them thi week will be going with either rcd or bts(cale). I am completely satisfied with the tunes I have just curious what the difference will be the new 35" tires are slowing me down a bit

Yeah eric was saying it will be a little rough on cold start ups but once you plug that block heater in she will fire right up:thumb:
