Default Patriot (Spar-tan) V10.00 Update 2008-2010 6.4 OST (On Screen Tuning)

Since the Patriot, team rarely get on here I wrote up a post for you all that don't have Facebook.

My post below.

Hey guys, Patriot Diagnostics (formerly Spar-tan) Version 10.00 standard and SOTF (Shift on the fly) W/ OST (on screen tuning) for the 2008-2010 6.4 released today, the standard files and OST update will be free.

This brand new update let's you tweak shifting and other parameters to your liking.

Base files are all new, built from the ground up these new Patriot files don't even compare to the older (spar-tan) files.. all previous issues that the older spar-tan files had are now gone.

No more harsh shifting, touchy throttle or rev slams, these issues are all solved with the new files.

Truck drives with stockish manners under 50% throttle and shifts are near stock.

Shifting at WOT is firm but not overly firm and jolty like the old (spar-tan) files

combine all this, with the available SOTF (shift on the fly) and OST (on screen tuning) is basically custom tuning in you hands, in a few mins and a few clicks you can have a "custom tune" tailored to your liking for example shift firmness or hard parts modifications. Including turbocharger configuration, high pressure fuel system configuration, built transmission selection and many others all done on screen via a patriot tuning device.

SOTF is a 4 position hard wired (plug and play) switch, which will let you switch through 4 different tunes on the fly, this is not like previous methods of SOTF for the 6.4 that only changed IPW for every "tune" leaving more to be desired.

No transmission relearn needed while switch though all 4 positions, change positions as you please.

Patriot's SOTF solution is a very advanced method which changes, VGT, transmission shifting, injector timing etc making every tune its very own with different power and driving characteristics.

If you already have a Patriot (spar-tan) device and don't want SOTF and just the standard V.10.00 OST update and files.

Email sales@patriotdiagnostics.com and request version 10.00 Standard (non SOTF) OST and files, be sure to have your device serial number handy when emailing sales.

If you want to purchase the SOTF switch and software, price is $200 + shipping.

Yes

V10.01 will be going out tomorrow it fixes a small glitch in 75, 150 and 210 tunes as they were looking for EGT sensors in the exhaust causing a no start condition and a bunch of codes.

If you haven't emailed for an update yet ignore this message as V10.01 will be going out starting tomorrow.

The shifting is definitely a lot better than any of the previous tuning, and all the options that are offered are awesome too. Only thing I'm disappointed about is that the VGT off at idle was an option, at least what I downloaded it wasn't. I hate to complain at all with all the effort that was put into this over the last few years, and that it was a free update also. I'm very happy with the update other than that.

what benefit does vgt off at idle provide other than sounding different?

Im more concerned about getting rid of that damn tpms sensor light.

Nothing else

If you are interested in turning of the TPMS completely

You will need a windows laptop with bluetooth.

Download Forscan the latest windows forscan here (free)

http://www.forscan.org/download.html

Purchase a OBD II adapter like this OBD link MX

https://www.amazon.com/ScanTool-4261.../dp/B006NZTZLQ

Sign up on their forum and then generate a extended license, you will need your the hardware ID to apply for the extended license if you press on the little steering wheel icon it will take you to it.

Connect to the truck and go to module configuration, click on GEM (as-built)

Find 726-02-01 line

(make sure to write down your current value just in case.)

Most trucks with TPMS enabled will be 0060

TPMS disable will be 0000

Change the 6 to a 0 so the line will now be 0000

Go to the bottom and click write, it will write to the module then it will say along the lines of "programmed blocks successful" turn key off.

Turn the key off and turn it back on again the TPMS light will now be gone.

All in all takes around 5 mins.

New the Ndash is around 14-1500. if you can find one used it's 250 to re license if they returned to stock, so if you find a good deal it would run a bit under 1k.

can the pressure be lowered with forscan instead of completely disabled?
