Got the Super Chip programmer today. I like it! Easy to use and I felt a seat of the pants difference. Even with 5:13's mines been a dog over the last couple of days since putting on the 37's. Ofcourse Im driving a brick in 30 mph winds.

I set it on the 89 octane setting and found no detonation or pinging. You hit the throttle and it goes. It also appears to have gotten rid of the lag that happens when you push the gas. I'll have to play with it some more but there are fan settings, performance settings, transfer case settings for front and rear, tire and gear settings and I think Im leaving a couple out. Plus unlike the competition it comes with a USB so you can download updates.

I actually went to the R&D location and picked it up. They came out and programmed it for me and walked me thru it. I like their customer service.

We're giving a couple of these away at Jeep Beach so hopefully a couple of you will walk away with one.

Id pay for it just to get rid of drive by wire lag. I ****ing hate that thing when Im on dunes. Doesnt bother me at slow crawl speeds. But that lag gets hairy when you're needing that power in a hurry.

Yeah and I hear ya on this wind lately. 30mph steady winds 24/7 is a ***** at highway speed.

Have had mine for a couple weeks now and loving it - realized 1 additional mpg even with my lead foot :) Agree with Jeff - throttle response is better.

I want the lag gone..but not that bad.

Trust me its worth it. The problem with me is like at River Rock. When your trying to crawl over rocks and need a little gas its either none or all. Now that the lag is gone its instant peddle. Its does a lot more though. There are all kinds of settings that you can play with. I want to get into the t-case settings and see what they do. I loved it on the highway today. Even driving against the wind you could give it gas and get instant response. This will go into my best mods file. Its a pretty cool tool.

MILGRE - You might want to take yours back to S/C and get an adjustment since I smoked your a$$ at the track the other day. lol. 2 Jeeps drag racing...that was funny.

Yes, it did - but you went before he got to 3 - don't matter where it came from if you went early - LOL! It was way too cool racing two jeeps in the infield of DIS!

Do I bribe you here to win this at Jeep Beach or should I bribe you in person?

hehehe :thefinger:

LOL you do know I use to drag race semi-professionally and have over 300 rounds under by foot right? Or should I say thumb since I used a line lock. I didnt leave early, I tree'd you.

SOOOO... can we race at jeep beach?

Really would love to see how the supercharger with the new MBRP exhaust stacks up on the line!

Do remember ya used to race - but I think you're a little rusty....if there'd been a tree - it woulda been red on your side!

Sadly, Bill - we won't be able to do that at Jeep Beach - least not in the infield.

Here is an idea....


bring your jeeps to Orlando Speedworld and run the 1/4!

It's about 6 miles east of JeepersDen.

I go there atleast once a month. In fact, I was there last Friday night. There was a 18 second cougar, so we won't feel that bad. Just make sure you don't go in lanes 1 & 2. Those are for the cars that go under 11 seconds. 3, 4, 5, and 6 are for the other cars.

If you guys wanna go, i'll race ya or anybody for that matter. I know I can get a better reaction than Jeff...:laughing:

rooster
04-07-2009, 06:38 AM
LOL, you guys are funny :thefinger:

Grant you should ask your friend at S/C if he has an updated stat sheet. I'd like to see the difference between the 87/91/93 Octane settings. Also they need better descriptions. Like for the transfer case. Theres no description of what changing the settings will do for them and several other items.

I already asked that question and here ya go- "The 87 tune gains are about 4 horsepower and 5tq less than than the 91"

I still wanna race my jeep at orlando speedworld! LOL!!!!

Now that could be fun - I would just have to figure out how to disable that feature in my jeep that emits a high-piercing scream or the words "NO, NO, NO" at an alarming decibel whenever something exciting/scary is about to happen! LOL

So Orlando Speedworld... I will have to make time soon for this. Besides if I can break an axle, then I can get chromoly's...

Does the flashpac allow the electronic axle lock to be used in 4HI ?

If anyone has an in or connection with any of the vendors selling these maybe you could see about a group discount. I have seen it as low as 315 and may be available for less if we band together for a group discount.

If this is against the rules, please simply delete.

Superchips will be at Jeep Beach and will have them on site. Im sure they will do as they did at a recent show and offer the discount. 2 lucky people will win one at Jeep Beach!

Clark I couldnt answer this accuratley. I want to say yes. Mine are on idependent swithes anyway so thats why I couldnt say for sure. Im sure they are going to build a bypass to this if requested an already not a feature. They will be at Jeep Beach so I would ask to be sure. Grant has a connection as well and may can get you an answer quicker.

That's great but............ only a very small percent of those herein will be in attendance. Maybe they can provide a purchase code for a group discount. Or any vendor that wants to sell a bunch of these. I found them for 315 and they are probably available for less as a group. Maybe 275-295 in group. We should be able to get 10 or more for a 10% off the 315 for $285 ish.

Pastorsteve I will be more than happy to ask. My connection is in Atlanta and is the marketing director for them. I will let him know that members of this forum are interested and would like a discount code. I'll let you know what he says.

Dude (as they say) that would be wonderful. The reports I've read on these after initial installation - even from guys who have been running other competitor's models - is really appealing.

Obviously the best advertisments - especially on a new product - is from satisfied users.

Clark - tested it and it does work - but you have to do it through the programmer.

Mine came in yesterday and I just finished the 20 second update. I'll try to get it installed today. Has anyone done comparisons between the 87 and 91 octane programming? What seems to be working best?

Just pulled the trigger on mine- should be here Thursday afternoon or Friday- woo hoo! Thanks again to Tom at Truckcustomizers.com

Going by what I've seen with "other brand" programmers on the JK, there is a SLIGHT improvement in HP, and a noticable improvement in torque going from 87 to 91 (93 octane here). No real change in MPG gain, however- Mark W.

Just an FYI Superchips will have about 20 on site and for sale. Got the notice today.

Updated and installed today. Simple installation and quick install. I took it for a short drive but will have to try it on the highway tomorrow. I never had an issue with acceleration or throttle response as I have a 6-speed so I didn't notice an immediate "power" increase. I want to monitor the mileage and play with the programming points and see how it feels over the next week.

Pretty simple really even for me and I've never installed or used a vehicle programmer. It's just like installing a PDA or other plug-and-play electronic.

i just installed the superchips programmer last week. simply amazing in my opinion.

it did all the basic stuff. ie: accounted for my 37 inch tires, adjusted my shift points, reset my spedometer, yada yada. but the thing that impressed me the most was how it "woke up" my engine. i mean, its still no hemi. but now the throttle instantly engages, the tac will quickly flip to nearly the redline when i punch it, and i can pass on the highway now!!! (keep in mind i havent even regeared yet so i still have my 3.73's)

has a bunch of other nice features too....

superchips has gained my respect instantly.

Did mine- gotta say, in normal driving, no big change. But when you get on it! WHEW! She gets up and goes now. The e-throttle response is a BIT better, but not as good as I'd hoped- still not as good as a good, old-fashioned cable, but better than the mush it used to be. Haven't re-fueled yet, but the needle seems to be in slow-mo, so I'm happy :)
