That's what I did along with a programmer and my power really went up but my MPG went down. I can't keep my foot out of it. It's too much fun to drive now and it sounds awesome. :rck:elliottcarlose said:It does if you are able to keep your foot under control and not use the new power. The first are usually intake and exhaust get them both free flowing and your power will go up slightly.
Not entirely. Mileage is a function of work done by the engine. If the engine can do less work, it could see better mileage. Unfortunately, many performance parts also demand greater fuel consumption for this performance.nocturnalsst said:I am pretty sure this statement is FALSE.
I love it. The gains were great. If you look at the dyno chart at the Hypertech web site it shows the max gains for a '99 to be 9hp at the wheels. For an '01 it shows a 21hp gain. I think that's part of the reason why you get so many different opinions on how good Hypertech is. I'm sure Superchips are the same way. It depends on the year.JonRoc said:how do you like your hypertech wirenutt? I emailed superchips and they said 18hp & 30ftlbs of tq at the wheels. And the hypertech site says 11 hp & 18ftlbs of tq, but is the diff in price worth the extra 7HP &12ftlbs of tq, if those numbers are even true...
having to bum a ride to work & be without my truck for a couple days was well worth it.JonRoc said:if i knew someone in Tn that could tune it I would let them, I don't wanna have to send it in the mail across the country & be without a truck for days like if i sent it to B&G.
JonRoc said:i don't even know where to start when it comes to sending my pcm off to B&G. I'm afraid of even unplugging it out. If I knew exactly everything involved I would consider it, but for someone like me (don't know that much about engines...pay others to do it for me...lol), it seems like i'd need to read up alot. I'll check out his site and email him.
I agree with some of what 89smurf said.nocturnalsst said:I am pretty sure this statement is FALSE.
