hypermax mach 7

Just curious if anybody has tried the hypermax mach 7 setup on their trucks and if it does anything for your transmission shifts.

I have ran the Hypermax Mach 7 for years now on my 6.0L and I have had no problems with engine or tranny, due to the module....Jeff and Max do a great job with products, and they really know binder motors and how to help them make power.....I think it's better than an SCT tuner, if you use the horsepower settings you better have your seatbelts tightened up good.

No.

No.

No.

No.

No.

No.

Adding hp without tuneing the trans is dumb. Might as well pour sand in your transmission.

I've never ran one personally, but I've read plenty of cases where ppl have smoked thier tc with them.

Your stock trans tuning is set up to handle stock hp. If you bump up hp on stock trans tuning, your tc slip will be higher, decreasing tc life. Custom tuning raises trans rail pressure and changes shift points to account for the extra hp gains.

The topic of custom vs canned tuners has been beatin to death over and over again

incase you don't know already...Max has been passed away for over a year now...RIP Max Lagod! SCT is by far, more reliable and more safer than the Hypermax module...hands down proven. If it were the other way around you'd see hypermax on nearly every 6L out there...and that isn't the case and i wonder why. I've seen the hypermax kill a trans and have heard countless times over and over of the same. Do they make good power....yes they do. But is it safe power and is it good for a trans...nope. Ask yourself why you don't see anyone truck pulling or drag racing on a regular basis with a hypermax module. There's a reason why you don't!

Actually there are a lot of guys using them around here on 6.0L and 7.3L, I know of 4 that run them on their 6.0L, now they don't hook to the sled on a regular basis but they to their tractors that hook to the sled with them....most of us use the #2 or #3 setting anyways, very rarely does anybody "need" to use the higher horsepower settings. I did know about Max, just was stating a general fact. Once again none of have our trannies beefed up, because we don't use the higher horsepower on an everyday basis. When we do I guess the difference in shifting points doesn't bother us that much. And last, to all of you out there who do pull your trucks I'm not knocking anyone elses tuning, this is just my experience, and I'll stick to Hypermax.

A Wise man once said, "Never pull the truck you drove to the pull."
