The price is $1249.00, for 3 tunes up to the 210hp. Plus a dpf delete pipe, or you could get Regen on tunes up to the 150hp. I have two Spartan tuned trucks, and have been very happy....

Try contacting Greenhorn Diesel. He is running the dpf on tune. I think you may be able to find him on this forum...

Couldn't find him listed. I will pm him on the Spartan forum and have him contact you...

The 150 dpf enabled tune is awesome. It has a lot of snap to it. Shifting is better, along with the performance of the engine. Huge difference over stock. I have gained 1.5 mpg with it, but it would be better if I can stay out of the go pedal. That is hard because it is just so much fun. It is also on shorter trips. I regen about every 400 miles, instead of my normal 2-300 miles. I am on my second tankfull with it. I know it will let you regen at idle...I found that out last night. I haven't towed with it yet. I would say you would gain something towing mpg wise, but the driveability would far out weigh any mileage increase. I will tell you that you will have a *****ty grin when you get on it, especially when you beat a Dodge diesel, Silverado gasser, and a Mazda RX8. If you get over to the Spartan or Powerstroke.org forums, you will see my stories with those.

After reading a TON of info, I ended up with Spartan.

I got the special deal (3 tunes, + one race tun, FloPro full delete exhaust and AFE Stage II)

I got the DashDaq - 75, 150, 210, 275 - FLoPro 4" full stainless exhaust - AFE Stage II dropped at my garage door for a bit under $2100 (this includes the shipping price)

I have seen a +4 MPG in average mileage, I have yet to tow. Truck runs great and I am completely satisfied...

I have ordered a Aero 4040LX Resonated muffler to add into the straight pipe exhaust. I know with towing my camper I am going to get a drone and that will take care of it. I had a ton of wood pellets in the bed loaded with the 275 tune and I did not even know I had a ton in the bed. I did get some drone sound in the cab, but again the muffler will kill that.

I did have questions and called Spartan after my install. It took them a day to get back to me, but they are a small operation and are extremely busy. After I spoke with Matt he took the time and answered ALL my questions. I hung up the phone feeling like I spoke with a long-time friend, very personable and thorough in his explanations.

All in all, I am EXTREMELY satisfied with my purchase!
