Hey guys, I have another tuner questions for you. I have done 3 2008 6.4 trucks, all 3 with the same set-up. 4" straight pipe exhaust, S&B CAI, and a H&S mini maxx with hot damn download. One of these trucks we got to put on a dyno this summer and he layed down 586hp. I was really happy with those numbers. Long story short, i have another friend that just purchased an 08 6.4. I was wondering if any new tunes on the market and laying down better numbers, and just as good driveability.

Was considering spartan for it but unsure do to all the goodluck out of the H&S we have had.

ANy dyno conparisons out there, and transmssion shifting concerns?

I also didnt realize Matt at gearhead had finally had a chance to play with the 6.4, I use him to tune all the 7.3 and 6.0 trucks i'v built for my customers. May be giving him another call also

Regardless, any of the tuners mentioned are good. People may claim ome is faster than the other, which may be true at time. Sometimes a truck will just all around run better than another. Any of the tuners mentioned are great

From what I've seen?
I got smoked at the track by a guy that ran a 12.8. All he had was exhaust,intake, and a spartan, with a small shot of giggle.

Haha I was waiting for it too!


I have Spartans tunes and daily drive the 310. I couldn't be happier with it. Sometimes it's a little touchy on the throttle but the 275 isn't as bad.

How does the shifting compare with the spartan, i know when matt at gear head tunes on the 6.0's they shift awesome.

You won't be disappointed with matts 6.4 tunes either. The one I have shifts nice and firm but not head jolting neck snapping hard lol. I recommend buth Gearhead and IDP. Parents are running the mini maxx and it's pretty good too. Can't go wrong with any of those three.

Yeah...I think these tuner threads are dumb....its all personal preference. None of the comparisons are worth anything since we know with the exact same setup identical trucks will make different power. I bought the mini maxx for cost, size, and on the fly adjustability. That doesn't make it better or worse than anything else.
