    Default How to use a Hypertech Programmer

    I have a 2004 Chevy 2500HD 4x4 Crew Cab Long Bend with a 6.0L Gas Engine. Bought this hypertech Max Energy Chip Programmer but dont know what to do I installed it asks to change shift points and I dont know what to set every thing to I just want better performance and better gas mileage. Anyone have any Ideas on what I am suppose to do.

    Well, I suggest this:

    1. Program the correct octane for what you use
    2. Adjust the rev limiter to like +300-500
    3. Adjust the shift points to +300 for each gear
    4. Adjust the shift firmness to max

    That should get you the most out of that programmer. I use the Hypertech HyperPAC and it basically uses the same program, just with extras.
