Tuner on order

Did my re enlistment last week and got a very nice bonus to fund a few truck projects.

First up is gettin' rid of that dang DPF on the '08.

Would like to thank Jeff at Spartan for answering all my questions, and Angela for takin' the order a little after closing due to my 12hr shift work.

I picked the intake, dpf/cat delete package, and can't wait for the weekend to bolt 'er on. Not exactly what tune number I want to run yet, but for sure want to get the most out of my stock clutch, so not lookin' for crazy power.

Start with the lowest power then work up. I noticed if I walked into the power the clutch would handle it. 150 might be the max. Thanks for your service.

The 210 seems to be about the biggest tune for the stock ZF-6. Some guys have had good luck with the 250 tune, but I wouldn't push it if your not looking to upgrade the clutch. Glad I could help out! If you have any other questions, feel free to PM or email me!

Like stated above, thank you for your service!!!

Got it all installed today. Went with the 150 first, clutch was rock solid. Stepped up to the 210 and holy #$%@ that is now a high speed rig. I'll run around tomorrow playin, then it is on to getting decent fuel mileage.

First question I have is the stock Ford tune saved on the SD card? Do I take that card out and save it so it won't get lost?
