I just purchased a custom tune from Mike at KEM yesterday and couldn't be happier.

What is the reason I can't buy the spartan 350 tune without first buying the 275 and 310? I don't need or want those, that was the reason I bought the kem 345. I am still interested in your 350 if I could just buy it alone.

It is an upgrade for our 310 users. Just like the 310/300 is an upgrade for our 275 users. The 350 tune is not quite dialed in yet. Matt and I are going to work on it in the Spring when I can get my truck out to the track. The 310 is our fastest tune right now still. The issue seems to only be a track issue though. On the street and dyno, the 350 tune has proven to be not only "seat of the pants" stronger, 35-40 horsepower stronger.

From what I read on the forums, KEM's 345 tune has turned in to more of street tune. Several people have attested to the fact that it doesn't pull as hard as our 310 tune does. I am not at all putting the tune down, just stating what I read. Every one raves about the tune, so it is not lacking in the drivability aspect of a tune.

The reason I say that is because our 350 tune is probably the most undrivable tune that offer. It is extremely aggressive, way more aggressive than our 310 tune. I never suggest it to anyone that does not use their truck for competition use. I actually think at this moment in time that it would really appeal to sled pull crowd because it fuels soooooo hard. I don't know of anyone that has tried it though.

The spartan 310 is the fastest tune I have run.
The Kem345 is the smoothest daily driver I have run. But does not have the power of the 310 but has 550 daily driver HP.

I'm not downing your tunes at all don't get me wrong I love my 250 tune, but I've never had to pay for tunes I didn't want before. DP-Tuner with my 7.3, Dp, innovative, (that guy out of FL) with my 6.0 and now KEM -- All of them had set prices for for each tune and I could pick and choose as needed. The only tunes I want are your 310 and 350(when it's available), and KEM's 345. I have no need for any others and don't see the point in buying a file that I won't even put on my flash card.
