Best procal

Just bought a new rig and was wondering what the best procal was? Best bang for the buck. Thanks.

Well Procal is the name of calibrator made by AEV. Procal is only one. There are other options to calibrate your speedo and more such as Flashcal made by Superchips.

I personally used Procal by AEV which i got from Quadratec for $150. It was easy to use, cant say much about Flashcal, just know its suppose to be the same module feature.

Depending on what year you have. The pro cal is the only one that supports 2014 at this point.

http://www.diablosport.com/release/2...-wrangler.html according to that URL, Diablo Sport also supports 2014 wranglers, and they were actually the first ones to market that supported 2014 models.

Theres only one procal. When i bought my flashcal it was 10 bucks cheaper than a procal. Thats why i have it..has an lcd screen too.

I wonder if any of these can enable my foglights without going to the dealer though (i installed the mopar factory option fog light kit)

Just did the Flashcal last week-end, took 5 minutes to upgrade the device on their website, very easy to use. Best upgrade for the buck, since it fixed the annoying uncalled for, transmission upshift from 2nd to third which bogged down the engine in traffic.

Just as satisfying, I was able to lower the TPMS setting on my 10A, which was set at a stock whooping 42lbs of air and triggered the alarm from 37 lbs down. Now I run 33 psi and have set the alarm to come on at 26 psi...... much better!!!

FYI, so far my brother and I have done it on our Jeeps and with the Flashcal, you can see what the current settings is set at. Both our Jeeps were set to run 30.5 inch tires. The Sahara and Rubicon tires have 31.5 inch ( real diameter) therefore, everyone should correct that for optimum gear shifting.

My Jeep shifts much better now and feels great.

Also, I had noticed the annoying 2nd to 3rd un-necessary upshift with the stock KM2s, not just with my new 285/70 Duratracs. So I needed it fixed when stock !!!

So which is better or do they all do the same thing? I need to do this as well but have been confused as to which is best.

Thanks

Procal from AEV or flashcal from Superchips are basically the saame thing in the way that they adress tire diameter for speedo and transmission gear change accuracy along with other stuff..... both are about $150.00.... procal has tuggle switches while flashcal has computer screen.

Since both are considered equals, I went with the flashcal for the ease of use of the screen. I also really liked the fact that before dialing in your changes, the screen shows you what is stored in the computer.....

So what is the difference? Flashcal makes the little adjustments needed after lift, tires, etc. and Flashpaq is a more advanced tuner?

The flashpaq is a tuner that gives you more horsepower and torque. Flashcal just adjust. But other than the power gian they are the same.So is a lil more power worth a 100 more dollars to you??

Not to be forgotten, a little more power means a little or a lot less mpg....

This statement is not true. I have seen an increase of almost 1mpg since I have been tuned. This is my second tank of normal driving back and forth to work. Usually when people say they lost mpg once tuned is because they are driving it harder than before. This is the same for an intake and exhaust. You are going to want to hear it when you first put it on so your foot is always in it.

I think it's worth it IMO. You will see a little power increase and the drivability will improve. The stock throttle lag is horrible and with the tuner that can all be adjusted. I have been running the flashpaq 87 tune on my jeep for the past couple weeks and I'm happy with the results. I came from a VW that a tune alone added almost 100ftlbs and 50hp. That is a completely different animal and did not expect gains anywhere close on my jeep. The gains are there though and I think the tuner is worth the money. This is all my experience and my opinion. I'm sure some won't agree but everyone has different tastes and driving styles. I wouldn't listen to the people that make statements when they haven't actually tried the tuner. I hope this little bit of info helps in your decision.

So I ordered the Flashpaq but what's the difference between the 3875 and the 3870? I ordered the 3875 since I was told it would work for a 2010 but saw the other model and got curious. Thanks everyone!

The 3870 is for the '11-'13 models and I think the '14 now also.

My 3875 came yesterday and programmed this morning and it's night and day difference! I still need to mess with it more but MPG's are already claiming and the Jeep is much more responsive.

tuned my 2010 jku with the 3875 flashcal by superchips. Noticed an immediate improvement in acceleration response. where I would be chugging along at 2000 rpms, it now runs at 2500. seeming mpg improvement already, but will post back my actual gains.
installed the 87 octane tune,(running 89) and the milesaver tune.
Had a 3-gf code at first, because I was not turning key to run, was actually at the accessory position. more later.

So far I've gain 2.4 MPG with the 87 tunes and couldn't be happier. Not bad for 37" tires. Totally worth it for how long I expect to own the jeep. Also noticed the same increase in power as you.

Anyone know how the safety feature of the Flashpaq 4WD HI axle lock works? Speed limited?
