getting spartan need help

so my dealer talked me into getting the spartan with cat back delete 4" ss pipe. he said it will have a muffler. also installing a cold air intake. he said they install the 250 tune. what does that mean? what can i expect in mpg-power-sound etc? does the dead unit show me trans temp? and boost? does it have other tunes preloaded? with the 250 tune will i blow my trans???
i have job 1 6.4l 2008.

The DashDAQ monitors 40+ things, so yes it will monitor trans temp, boost, EGT's, etc.

The 250 tune is a safe tune to run as long as you drive like a sane person with it. The transmission tuning allows for that big of a tune to be ran with a stock transmission with no issues. Sound should be good. Power will be great. Fuel mileage will be much better. The tuner comes loaded with a lot of 20+ tunes. 4 DPF on tunes, and a whole lot of DPF delete tunes. It also has EGR delete tunes.

Hope this helps.
