Did that Spartan Tuner ever come out for the 6.0L that's supposed to do EVERYTHING??? If so, how's it do? Wasn't it supposed to tune the FICM too?

I ask cause we all know how "informative" the website is when it comes to the 6.0L

the tuner is out. it currently does not have ficm tuning. from what i have gathered they are working on that but most likely we will see a 6.7 psd tuner first.

i read in a post matt say that they are almost ready to get the FICM tuning out. i think the phalanx (when it get's FICM tuning capabilities) will be the top of the line tuner. my experience as a spartan diesel tech customer has been their tunes were pretty much as good as they get, but they always were to busy or it was on the way or never return emails. my hybrid race tune didn't shift right and i got that tune around christmass and sent many emails and called a couple times leaving messages and about 6+ months later all i got was an email from matt saying he understands my frustrations, wishes he could help, but he will no longer be tuning SCT's.
considering all the gauge monitoring abilities with the dashdaq and spartans knowledge with powerstrokes and tuning, plus FICM it will be one heck of a tuner!! maybe one day if it all comes together i will be able to get one, hopefully they still remember the lifetime customers and the prorated price talked about last year which will make some of their old customers happy and buy some phalanx's.

I have thought about wanting to get the new SCT that wireless, but for about the same price it seems that the Spartan thing would be capable of much more... So where would the money be best spent right. I'm just kinda tired of the SCT X2 I have

if you have tunes on your X2 to get you buy for a little bit i would go with the spartan phalanx forsure, but maybe wait until the FICM tuning is ready (who knows may not be that far away).

I think I'll stick with the SCT. I did not care for any Spartan tunes. I believe they would ruin my truck if I used them daily. Unless someone else can write tunes for it.

you didnt have to run hybrid race all the time you know:haha

if you have the sct x2 id wait and see how it goes. right now there really isnt a better tuning platform for the money. if the phalanx gets ficm tuning you will be able to sell the sct tuner and recoup some bucks.

Yes, but I don't really see it as funny. I don't want to beta test someones bad tunes till they get it right. They should be perfect from the start, like my dj's tunes were. I tried a few of them and they all had issues.

they were FREE tunes.... They were like try it to see if you like it tunes that would be perfected when you purchase. They basically were canned tunes.

The Phalanx is out for the 6.0L but does not have the capabilities of tuning the FICM yet. A few other projects need to be completed first before the functionality is added.

Bingo..

they are there to TRY..

If you like parts of it you would then call them, pull out the wallet(non free part) and pay to have it writin for your truck, tire size gears, ect..

The free tunes where put together for us to TRY!

As 50 years ago until today, you get what you payfor.

No! As with all tuners that program the truck and by program I specifically mean flash program. You must shut the vehicle down and flash the computer (pcm, tcm etc) any tuner that is shift on the fly in my opinion is a glorified 10k mod and not worth the time or the money. Sorry for the rant. Sotf is crap

Tuner.. programs the pcm, tcm,and soon to be ficm...

chip(on the fly)... Tricks the pcm, tcm into seeing different data then what is really being sent like the 10K mod as mentioned.
