Flashing compter chips and mods.

Do any of the computer chip programmers or mod chips such as super chip or jet chip really work?
I would like to hear your input on the devices and which is the best if they really do provide better mpg and HP.

I've heard a lot of good things about the "Superchip" benefits--

I don't use one, I have an AEV Procal Module, because of lift/tires and ability for higher idle speed !!

I will let you know in a couple weeks when I get mine. I ordered the superchips.

I have used many programmers on many different vehicles. They do work. In some case better than others. The throttle calibration and real time idle speed adjustment is worth it for me.

I got a Superchip. I'm getting 16mpg if I don't wheel, and it makes 4.10 with 35's doable. acceleration is great, and I have 90% overdrive use in my automatic.

EXCELLENT power modification

Installed the 87 oct program and it is a big difference. Don't feel like I am dragging my ass anymore. Also got 22 mpg on last road trip.

Installed the 87 octane and went from 15.2 to 16.6 mpg just driving around local in the last day. The acceleration also seams better and the pedal seams more responsive. I' m going to try either the 89 or 91 octane program with my next fill up.

Do these chips void the factory warranty?

Don't know the official answer but I think any chip will void your warranty from what I've read about it. Some chips don't leave traces so that you can up plug them before you take your Jeep in to be serviced and they can't tell it's been there but you have to remember to unplug it first!

Superchip update, still running the 87 octane, but filled half the tank with exxon 93, gas milage on local roads 19.1 , haven't tried the highway yet. Will try the 93 octane program after my next fill up. The 91 octane program isn't practical for me because I can't get or find 91 octane fuel and 92 is the same price as 93.

I run 93. have been the last 15 tanks or so. that's what I'm basing my numbers off. 16ish street MPG only, 12mpg off-road every weekend and back to work Monday.

those numbers might be a little off since I manipulated my automatic's shift pattern for even more power.

I have seen this question asked many times before about mopar programming and I can tell you that as long as you return the vehicle to stock programming before a dealer visit you should be fine. I say should because they can't tell that you have tuned your vehicle or what parameters have changed. They can however see how many key cycles have happened since the last write to the computer which could raise a red flag. They have to look for that though. Disconnecting the battery long enough to reset the system also resets the ignition cycle counter so that is an option to fall back on if they ask.

I'll find out on Monday! My AC has taken a crap and the Jeep is going to the dealer to fix. I've changed the tune back to stock, per SuperChips instructions.

The SuperChips is awesome. It does everything the AEV ProCal will do and more, including gear/tire changes and idle speeds. I'd recommend it to all.

I'll be getting one for my '02 TransAm in a couple weeks.

I have the flashpaq, and am running the 91 tune with 33" tires. Last hand calculated MPG was 18.2. Not too shabby, and the damn thing will get up and go. I used the crawl program last time I went in the dirt and was happy there as well. Overall, the best bang for the buck mod I have done. Just remember to set it back to stock when you take it in for service. Even if you are well out of warranty. If the dealer updates your ECU and it isnt stock. Your Flashpaq wont recognize it when you reconnect it.

My 2010 Wrangler Sport has the Superchips 87 Octane program and it runs great. Lots of low end power and getting 17.5 MPG in the City and 19.8 on the Highway and that's with 33x12.5 tires on 17" mags. Absolutely love it!

They should have no reason to look at the computer for A/C work. Sleep well knowing that.
