Does it take longer for a stock tcm to learn than a spartan?

I'm curious about this. I remember before the spartan tcm, that it took awhile for it to learn. With the spartan tcm I do the relearn process and it's pretty good after that. I'm trying the KEM 345 which isn't tuned for the spartan tcm, and I've done the relearn process and it for sure seems like it still learning. Also the 2-3 shift seems more sloppy or flare more often than it did on the 310/tcm combo. Any input on this? Thanks.

I believe you answered your own question... You are trying to run a non tcm tune with the Spartan tcm. If the 345 wasn't designed for it, I would imagine it wouldn't run very well imo. I'm sure someone more more technical info will have a better answer for you.

Ya that wasn't clear. I am not running the spartan tcm with the kem tune. Just seems to be taking longer with this non tcm tune.
