I just got my Superchip tuner and was quite shocked of the difference mainly in shifting. I know a 4.7L comes stock around 230 correct? Now how much HP do yall think I gained with my 01' 4.7 club cab?

S/C on 93 tune is the greatest!! 230 is at the flywheel. Rear Wheel your looking at closer to 175ish. I think SC adds about 10-15%. Part of that depends on other mods as well.

Those gains are through a Manual Transmission though, im sure, i'd say 10-15 HP and torque at best through an Auto. The main difference your feeling is the shifting and revving higher before shifting, i cant tell a difference between econo tune and performance tune, but i get better mileage on performance tune, so thats my reason for running it.

I wouldnt expect any low end gain from a programmer, and if your expecting a lot of power then you shouldnt be buying it all, these are impressive for what they are but the dont work wonders like a cam and a stall and gears would do

well first you have to buy the overpriced cams to begin with, im not sure what a good mechanic would charge, i would check your local dealer, if it were me i would do them myself, cam swaps are very easy, anyone can do them, especially overhead cams, its one of the simplest things you can do to the internals of a motor.

if you want more low end tourqe. then use the towing setting. you can feel the difference between towing and preformance.

When doing the cams, most likely you will go through KRC, they provide all the tools needed to do the cam swap yourself

Post #16 has my dyno numbers from my old 2003 regular cab 4.7L 5-speed w/ 3.92's. The jpeg's gone but hHere's a cut and paste:

When I mention stock below the only mods are Volant CAI, removed cluch fan, those are the only two mods my truck has done.

Here are the results, all on 93 octane gas:
Stock: 190.67 hp 244.36 Tq
Stock + Superchips 87 octane program: 196.88 hp 254.70 Tq
Stock + Superchips 91 octane program: 203.16 hp 269.27 Tq

The Superchips Programmer was designed for mainly for a stock engine with minimal mods, Cold Air, Catback Exhaust........

If you've done more or gone further with Cams, Ported Heads and Intake, Headers, Etc......

A PCM flash is probably a better bet to get the Most from the Mods you've done.

and of course it all depends on your Budget too!

Very true, but one thing to remember when you have done ported heads cams, intake, headers, exhaust etc. You shouldn't be worrying about a little thing like budget because your pcm flash will be 100 bucks more then a programmer
