For modest gains

Has anyone tried the Ultimate Performance Module for modest performance gains? What was your experience? Its only about $40.

The Ultimate Performance Module is the answer to today’s high fuel prices and
all of us looking to squeeze that hidden power and fuel economy out of your engine.
Typical gains with our products is a horsepower gain of up to +50 HP, while gaining up
to +5 MPG in fuel mileage due to increased engine efficiency! The way that our products work is by sending a continuous signal through a factory engine data sensor that your Factory Engine Control Module (ECM) monitors. This modified and continuous signal triggers your factory ECM to reprogram itself for a more optimum fuel mixture and timing curve, allowing the full benefits of an expensive power programmer but while retaining the complete safety of your Factory ECM.

The advantage of the Ultimate Performance Modules is that they do not directly interface with your Factory ECM. If you compare our products against an expensive $400+ name brand power programmer, they work by interfacing with your Factory ECM via the OBDII port underneath the dash. The expensive power programmers completely rewrite your Factory ECM in order to override your stock tune. The two downsides to this is that your Factory ECM risks corruption if there are any power interruptions or errors within the expensive power programmer, which could require a tow to get your Factory ECM reflashed by your dealership. The second downside is that since those type of products directly interface with your Factory ECM, it will leave a footprint behind in the memory. Many dealerships check the memory for any codes or footprints during routine maintenance, and could void your warranty for using those types of power programmers!

On the flip side, since the Ultimate Performance Modules does not directly interface with your Factory ECM and merely only sends a continuous signal through a factory engine data sensor, it will absolutely not leave any footprints behind in the memory since our products are simply triggering your Factory ECM to reprogram itself on its very own, being completely undetectable by your dealership. Our products are completely reversible and your Factory ECM will instantly revert back to the stock settings once removed!

i've never heard of that thing. if your looking to only spend a little to get some increase in performance look at the bd boost builder. i have read good things about reducing turbo lag on a stock truck.

Just do yourself a favor and get an SCT flash device with custom tunes. Nothing will increase both performance and economy as safely and reliably as they will. Don't be like me and buy a "cure all" programmer only to find out it's not nearly as good as the SCT.

I just put in my SCT and set on street program i get appx. 100hp (so i am told) and my mileage is exactly the same. to gain that kind of power and not lose mileage is nuts. havn't tried the tow tune but rumor is i'll still have an increase in power over stock and mileage will go up too.

Just for a heads up. You will get the best MPG out of an all out race tune than you will with any other tune. Between the converter locking up and all the other little things in the tune, if you drive it like a sane person and keep your foot out of it, the Race Tune will be your best bet for fuel mileage.

I'm assuming you two are talking about Canned tunes, Street & Race?

Did you have any mods, or is it completely stock? I'm little concern about putting that much compression in the top of that motor, that gives that 100 extra horses.
