Talking Got my super chip!

HOLY COW!! what difference in my truck. She is off the line more readily and shoots up to 60 pretty quick! It took minutes to load in the software and off it went! And improved mileage?!?! Thats a win-win if I ever saw one! Even my wife noticed the difference.

Thankyou Superchip model 1705!

I had a superchip 1950 in my truck and then changed to an SCT X3 with gearhead tunes. Enjoy your superchip but when you get used to it, upgrade to the SCT and you'll see double the improvement the superchip gave you.

I will look it up and check it out. At this point though I don't have an EGT gauge so I don't want to get to crazy without proper instruments. Also I learned today while working on my truck that my Tranny is a rebuilt unit. I should look up the model info to see if it can take the extra HP and Torque.

GForce did you upgrade your drivetrain to match the larger tires and HP?

Thats another thing I will upgrade the exhaust to a 4'' when this one wears out.

No, I didn't. The truck has around 135,000 miles on the stock tranny. I have resleeved driveshafts to match the lift. I figure that I'm gonna drive it like hell and when the tranny goes boom I'll put in a high HP rebuild from a guy I know up here.
