Hi Guys I'm new to the truck game as well (2007 Chevy Suburban 4x4), have not really done any work on cars before.
I was also looking to increase HP and fuel economy.
After reading a bunch of posts on here and other sites it looks like the this is the best route.
I was taking a look at getting the:
Hypertech Max Energy Programmer
I'm going with this because it also allows me to set my speedometer with my new wheels I plan to get.
But I'm up in the air when it comes to the air filter. I've been looking at the following company. Keep in mind gas economy is my first priority and HP off the line is my second.
Could I get feedback on which one people think I should go with?
Also would I notice a difference in power and fuel economy by adding an exaust out the back?
Cheers and thanks for all the help I've learned so much from just reading posts.
Congrads on making the switch to the truck world, espically it being with a Surburban.
The easiest way to make great HP and performance for the GM Trucks would be;
Cold Air Intake
Cat Back Exhaust System
It really doesnt matter what brands, but you have to watch out because other brands offer what others dont. Between Hypertech and Superchips, I'd go with the Superchips just because it offers more mods for the computer to gain better performance.
Cold Air Intake you'd find that K&N is usually the most durable out of the bunch that you named off, but you also realize that K&N is a oil based and typically after awhile you'll have to replace the mass air flow sensor, because some of the oil that comes off the filter gets on the fine wires of the sensor. I believe AFE makes the dry filter kits, I'll check into that for you....
Will all 4 combined you will definitally notice a difference in performance and power. If you have any questions feel free to message me at [email protected]
