Can I loan out my Superchips tuner

I want to loan a buddy my tuner so he can try it before he buys one. Is that going to cause a problem.

You will have to return it to stock first which is easier said than done..only works on one rig at time..other that I don't see why there'd be problem

Other than the person you're loaning it to has to return the tuner and their Jeep back to stock before they can give it back to you. So unless they are using it to clear codes....there's no point.

He just wants to see what the difference is with or without before he shells out for one. Return to stock one click and 100 seconds, simple.

Return to stock to unlock. Loan it to friend to tune/test. have friend return to stock to unlock it again. You can use it again.

I'd be hesitant to do this simply because, apparently, I'm too stupid to return mine to stock! I've tried and tried, but there's something I'm missing. I did it once by accident, but couldn't figure it out again when I dropped it off at the dealer for work.

Been there, done that. Had it tuned stock, but something was still holding on. I'll try it again at some point because eventually, I'd like to maybe get a Trinity, but I'm not sure when.

If you used it to disable the TPMS that may be what's mucking up the works. There was a big shit storm about how Superchips isn't real clear that you TPMS function is completely independant from the rest of the tuning. Something to do with liability reasons or some such thing IIRC.

Sure my rig has seen the trail, but I wheel it like a soccer mom looking for a parking spot at Nordstroms.

Send a message via Skype™ to venom

So get a $150 pro cal instead
Half the price and it will set speedo n gears if you don't care about the motor tuning.

Try it out, i noticed a difference in throttle response when running the 87oct tune that made a huge difference in freeway driving.

I think this thing is finally coming together. Still Needed: drive shafts, frame mount rails...then done son! For a while...

For some reason, I haven't been able to download the "disable TPMS" program onto my unit. I just deal with the light on the dash. It goes well with the other 3 or 4 lights that're on right now anyway.

The tire pressure is set at whatever it comes at... 37psi, I think.

Thought about the Bullydog instead? Still VIN tied, but you can use it on other make and model vehicles once you return it to stock.

But he'd have to find another friend with a bullydog.

I can't remember is yours an auto? A lot of people have commented on improved shift points back where they should be with it and the speedometer corrected.

........My other hobbies include: Older cars and trucks; Spending money on unfinished projects, and continuing to not finish them...
