superchips cortex programer
I have been told that I can custom tune my programer to make more power than the superchips settings do. Is this true or is the superchips setting the best setting. If I am able to custom tune these settings could someone give me a custom tune paramiters settings. Shift points and shift pressures. I would appreciatie everything. Also im in east texas and i was wondering if any one knew anyone that would do a custome tune.

cortex is new from super chips. if you wait super chips is going to come out with a newer cortex that you can program several vehicals instead of just one kinda like hp tuners. which in my personally is the best way to go.

I have never had a Superchips tuner before, so this probably won't help you at all but here goes nothing. On a lot of the aftermarket programmers they are pre-installed with "SAFE" parameters of tuning, some may have a program running with 87 octane or even 92 octane for more performance. These are general programs for easy install, but if you choose you can adjust most of the parameters yourself for more performance. I don't know if I would take somebody's setting advice and put it on your truck, mainly because everybody drives differently. For example my truck is set to run on Premium fuel, with my shift points adjusted to a 5.13 gear and 35" tires. So if I wouldn't have told you that and you wouldn't have asked me, then those settings would be totally messed up for your truck. To me it is a game of trial and error, you will miss the first couple of times but eventually you will find settings that suit your driving habits. Good luck with that..........AMY2004 Chevy Colorado

Thanks Amy I really apreciate what you said. My truck has never ran anything less than 93 octain. I guess for now i will stick with the superchips tune that is installed.

superchips fixed that. You have to take it off of one vehicle to put it on the other. You know if you wana drive the Z28 for the weekend you can put it on that. Then on monday you can put it back on the truck.
