KEM ROCKS!!!

Well i have been in two 6.4's that shifted insanely hard and I even had the TCM and still shifted hard..which is two months old and for sale in the Red deer area.. So i got the 345 tune from Mike and holy S%$# its a totally new truck! No more puking or hard shifting!! I sure wish Mike had been on his own a year and half ago sure would have saved me time and money and more money wasted on Spartans Stuff. Once again thanks KEM Performance!!!

The following is one of your (the 450kid) post concerning Spartan:

I would just like to say thank you to Mick! I was in need of a stock tune tonight in a bad way and he went above and beyond for me! As I post this it's 12:30 am mountain time and i just got off the phone with him as he assisted me with the new file. .......Doesn't get much better then that!

I went with Spartan on each of my last four Super Duties and think that they have the best customer service, plus some of the most "researched & tested" products. Never felt that I wasted money on my Spartan Stuff.

Really? I heard of customer service issues every once in awhile but thats about it tho. Charged for tunes that should be corrected anyways are my only complaint.

Spartan is a very respectable company. Ive had no regrets with buying from spartan, to this day the spartan 250 tune is my absolute favorite tune. KEM is a great company too, Mike is dedicated to his work like the men and women at spartan. You can lose with either of the companies.

Mike can't tune with our TCM on the truck, only the stock TCM. I do know that much.

I will say that Mick does do an excellent job helping us out, with out a doubt... I am just one of the lucky ones who did not have consistent luck with my tunes i guess... And i will agree my 250 tune did work well for me.The rest were hit and miss for me anyways..

You mean the Spartan "modified with aftermarket RTV" TCM? Sure I can.
