    Default Hypertech users?

    What setting did you use on your programmer? I just ordered the MaxEnergy and was looking for advise on how you set yours...I will be using the 87 octane setting. Where did you set your shift points, shift firmness, etc...? Thanks in advance!

    I have pretty basic settings on mine. I run the premium fuel setting (filling up with 93 oct), and bumped the shift firmness to 100%. I haven't ever played with the shift points or anything. The shift firmness makes a big difference, and running premium fuel with the premium tune makes my truck run great. I used to get a clatter when I stomped the pedal, but not after I went to higher octane with that tune. Good luck!
