Thread: hypertech vs. superchips

Oh ok, I was just going on what I read from Hypertech. It does make sense that it's the same tune just in better packaging. I guess the new version is just more flexible. So far I've only heard good things about it...may have to wait for my tax refund, bonus, or something.. don't have the cash just yet.
Another ?... Can you have more than one vehicle tuned at a given time? The 3rd gen would only let you have one tuned and would not let you tune another vehicle till you returned the last one back to stock settings..

what is a good company that sells a software program that will let you do a custom n/a tune, or at least a tuner that can be modified for further performance by specifying further upgrades. (ex. different tunes for exhaust systems, camshafts, headers, ect)

If you want to do it yourself, HPTuners and EFI Live are popular options. But there is a whole lot to learn before you start tuning away.

Finally tuned the truck today...pull above 2500rpm is much better now. That's normally where it started making power anyway. So far it's a good tuner...definite difference.
When I first hooked it up it found two engine codes. I looked them up in my Haynes manual and it said it's running lean on banks one and two. I can only assume that's because of my K&N intake and Magnaflow allowing it to flow more air. The engine lilght never came on though. I cleared the codes and proceeded to tune. Runs fine.
