Re: Spartan tuned 6.0s?

honestly i never liked spartins 6.0 tuning (free tunes) just dident do it for me. I really like Dougs Race tune as the have great shifting more toque than any tune i have tried, and spot on torque converter locking but i have never tried his at the track. Erics race has less lowend (not by far), you feel every time it shifts BUT It is has more topend than dougs and i did a 13.7 tune only with his tune. Erics and Dougs just seem to be where do you want that umph.

Re: Spartan tuned 6.0s?

JD, I tried a bunch of the free spartan tunes and they were just terrible on my truck. I know others have had good luck but I did not. The transmission shifting was just awful and in fact it even messed up some of my Innovative tunes. I had to set the truck back to stock, bring my SCT in the house and erase it clean, then re-load my Innovative tunes, retuned the truck and it was fine after that. I quickly deleted those spartan tunes...

Re: Spartan tuned 6.0s?

Do you guys think Spartan will get back to tuning 6.0, or with the way the 6.4 took off probably no chance.

Re: Spartan tuned 6.0s?

Anyone heard anything on that 175 tune? You guys said the free tunes suck, but what about that one? That may be a dash daq tune or whatever? Any info?

Re: Spartan tuned 6.0s?

hes supposed to have the dashdaq out soon if its not already out. I run erics race tune and the ficm tuning. it gives plenty of power. Innovative would get my vote for a very hot tune. the only difference is that the dashdaq will be able to reflash the ficm as well but if you already have an sct, just mail it out and you will get the same tuning ability, just for alot less money. I wouldnt run one of the free tunes in my truck. from what ive heard some have of the archived tunes havebecome corrupted and I ould rather not risk damaging my truck.

Re: Spartan tuned 6.0s?

Sam just to be sure, you are saying that I can send my SCT back to Eric and he can now tune the FICM with it in addition to programing the motor and transmission?
