Thanks.
On my 2013 JKUR (manual), combined with 37" tires and 5.13 gears, the added responsiveness and quickness after switching the 93 octane tune last night was readily apparent. I could feel it from the very first moment I hit the gas! I tested the new gears with the stock tune, 87 octane tune, and now the 93 octane tune. The changes from the flashpaq tunes were definitely the most noticeable using the 93 octane tune, but that may be because I have a manual. Both the 87 and 91 octane tunes could/should be even better on automatics.

I'll let you know what affect it has on mpg and rpm after I do about seven more days of testing...

^thanks for the feedback. Exactly what I'm looking for.

I have a lot of experience with SC, on multiple vehicles, and have found their tunes usually blow the competition out of the water as far as performance. I also love the advanced trans tuning I bought for my ram. Reduced TM is also great. Only downfall is no custom tuning for power adders but that's not an issue for our jeep lol. The SC will likely be the only performance mod. We MIGHT do a muffler and drop in filter at some point...

This is exactly why I ended up going SC instead of Diablo Trinity. I had a Predator for my Charger and it was very much NOT a stock vehicle. The Predator CMR tuning was absolutely awesome for that application. My JK is basically stock though and I couldn't justify the $515.00 for a Trinity on a vehicle that doesn't even have custom cams or ported heads available.

For your earlier question, the 91 Octane tune from SC really woke my JK up. It feels like the canned 93 Octane tune from Diablo + increased shift firmness and throttle toe-in options enabled. It does wonders for the dang drive by wire mushy accelerator pedal syndrome.

Yeah, without a doubt the throttle response is phenomenal compared to stock. It's almost TOO responsive with my manual trans, new gears, and the added torque! Once I'm used to it, though, I'm sure it'll be less jumpy.

On another note, I'm having an issue with the TPMS Off-road add-on. It successfully turned off the warning light, but it still says "Check TPM System" when I turn on the vehicle, and defaults to the tire pressure display. It also says "System Warnings Present" when I scroll through the menu options.

So, the warning light is gone, but something in the system still thinks the TPMS is on and failing.

Does anyone else have this issue? I didn't have this problem with the AEV ProCal, so I'm hoping it's just something they forgot to add to the custom update they sent me today. Hopefully they can fix me up tomorrow...

In this picture, you can see that the warning light is gone (normally under the tac), but the stupid system message is still there. I tried to read and clear DTCs using the tuner, but it says there aren't any... WEIRDNESS!

I just called one of the bigger online retailers and I asked about the ability of the tuner to override the lockers to work in 4hi on a 2013 Rubicon using the flashcal or flashpaq. They said it does not work and the company is still working on it. Is this correct because the manufacturers website states otherwise?

why not just lower your tpms threshhold to 22psi instead of totaly disabling it? I kind of like the feature in case im running a slow leak or something. I dont mind my tpms light being on when im offraod and aired down.

My tires don't have sensors, so I need it to be completely disabled.

I have a full set of the sensors sitting here in a box, but TPMS annoys the hell out of me when I air down and go off-road...

They are working on it according to the engineer I emailed yesterday. I was straightening out my 2014 flashpaq issue and figured I would ask. He didnt give me a timeline on when it will be available so probably not real soon.

Yeah its kinda sucks its not available yet but it was nice to hear they are working on it. Im not a fan of doing it the other way by grounding the relays out and tricking the system. Ill just wait till superchips releases it and it will be done right.
