Max Energy programmer by hypertech

Does anybody know anything about the Max Energy programmer made by Hypertech? I recently traded for a crew cab 2WD 7.3 and the lady left hers in and gave me the box.

I want to keep it because I want the best MPG as possible, but I want to sell it because I heard chips are just so much better.

What do you think?

Also, can I just plug it in and change the settings just like that?

Hypertech is just canned. It'd be ok I guess just be easy on the truck with it.

It's just a generic tune, not custom designed for your wants, needs, and truck, and not as safe either.
So you can use it, but don't work the truck hard with it.

Would it be a bad idea if I return it to stock and just sell it?

My truck is due for an oil change anyways and I can use the cash for new bushings and oil.

I wouldn't buy a hyper tech, but since you have it I say just run it for now until you decide if you want to take your truck to the next level

Hypertechs are pretty mild programmers and I don't think you could really hurt anything by running it.
I know a guy who had 400'000miles of hypertech programming on his truck with no issues. The original tranny even lasted to 300'000 miles

Dual SD fuel pumps, in tank mods, CNC Fab bowl retain kit. SDK Tunes. Isspro.
Still pretty slow, just less slow now.

The truck has 299K miles on it. And its still the original transmission. I don't have a trailer or anything to pull but the previous owner hauled a horse trailer on goose neck.

Just want whats best for the truck as a daily driver.

Would it hurt to return it back to stock until I get a TS chip or something in that range? I can sell this, use the money for maintenance and things.

Never hurts to be stock.

Wow! If you got $250 for it I'd say you did okay.
