Spartan Tuned Having Problems

I daily drive with the 275 tune. I have the afe intake and dpf delete. The truck drives around fine, but when you punch it pulls good to 60 than just drops a gear it never did that before and just falls on its face really bad. If you try punching it again like once you slow down its just sputtering like truck shaking and not pulling. The truck has never thrown a code its a job 1. I am just gonna put it back to stock and trade it in next week... Idk what the problem is... sucks but whatever...

Mine does the same thing, but when I punch it again, it takes off, but it gets up to about 60, shifts weird like its doing it twice, and really falls on its face.

Dont trade it in, its most likely not that big of a deal. Have you contacted Spartan or Mick here on these forums? When did you get the 275 tune? Do you know what version it is?

I wasn't a fan of the 275 V3 tune, but trust me, Matt will be releasing a 310 tune that will blow your socks off.
It cured everything in my truck, along with delivering a ton more power...

Ya I dont really want to get rid of it. I have the 275 V3 I had the V2 but never thought to keep it when i got the V3. The truck has 14,000 miles on it and has been tuned for 6,000.

I had the same problem and they sent me a 275 v4 and fixed all my problems. Contact Mick and he will tell you what to do to get it.
