So i think im ready to order my spartan tuner and exhaust, i cant stand driving a truck not tuned. I want the spartan with the 310 tune on it and i also want 5 inch straight exhaust. All the truck has for mods rite now is an s&b intake. Where is the best place to get this from? thanks for the help in advance

I purchased mine from Saprtan. I have the 250 and 275 but use the 210. It shifts more like stock and smokes less BUT totally kicks *****...

thanks what tunes do i go with? Can i use the 310 as a daily driver? I will occasionally be pulling a light load and every once in a while a heavy load. This will just be for driveability and fun! Does spartan sell a five inch straight exhaust?

Aaron hooked me up, the spartan package he made for me included most of what is in my sig...

Worth a phone call, Spartan was going to do a package for me as well, but Aaron shipped free!

I just wish I could get a military discount...

I havent driven with the new improved, but I was told the 310 was tough on your tranny. I run the 275 as daily driver and tow with 210/tow. I dont want to burn up tranny or break anything. Best of luck.....

When I called the lady to put a package together, I inquired but she said they offered no additional military discount. I didn't inquire about free shipping however their was freight on the estimate...

Now weather she was uninformed or unaware, the damage has been done.

I'm not sure if I inquired to Aaron at Rudy's, either way damage is done.

Most internet and phone sales don't offer the discount because there is no way to validate weather or not it is in fact a member. Really if you need to pretend to be a soldier to get a discount, you have issues.

My experience is often that many companies don't offer a direct discount on the till, however if you inquire to management often they have a police/fire discount or in some cases I've received the employee discount.

Of course as a contractor I get discounts at places as well, so sometimes you have to play both cards, and luck out at some point.

well everyone likes to have fun occasionally but hell i only drive it a few times a week if that and im usually very easy on it so i think the 310 tune would be ok for a daily driver. What will be different with the new tune you guys are coming out with?

Rudy does offer military discount and was a close second on my package, but bought direct ONLY because they threw in free 275/310 tunes into package. Rudy was great to work with though and I am sure he will get some of my business in the near future....
