I got a v4 i guess? of the 275 in my email a few months ago and finally got around to loading it today because the version I had been running was fine. It seemed to be a little louder which I liked and blew a little more smoke. What I didn't liek was that the tranny got lost A LOT, i got turbo farts (going back through the turbo) A LOT, and I didn't like how when i let off the skinny petal i'm thrown forward. After about 1-2 hours worth of driving i decided that I felt like i was going to break something and parked at the mall and switched back to the old version which these things occur a lot less frequently.

Did I just get a bad tune revision? and if anyone from spartan reads this are you going to make a tune that lopes in the future? I want my truck to lope soooooooo bad:usflag

Thats what I'm running, and I have to ease out of the throttle to prevent barking and being thrown forward...just something to get used to, alot like my 05 with Innovative's X-street.

I'm running the 275v2 and as of late it seems the tranny has been getting lost, so I reloaded it without switching back to stock, still seemed lost at times, so I finally returned it to stock, then loaded the 275v2 again and it seems to be a little better, but still lost at times. I don't like it.

Im wondering if spartan is going to do another revision to the 275. I hope so. I really wish i could get the V2 power everyone is talking about.

I have the v2 but I think there's a v4 out now and its supposed to be way better than the v3 for power but better shifting than the v2.
