Superchips Flashpaq

Just purhased a 2010 Jeep Wrangler Sport. Is anyone using the Superchip Flashpaq and , if so, can you share your experience in performance impovements. Mine is a 6 speed manual. I am looking for more power and better gas mileage. Also installed Khumo tires 33x12.5R17 A/T. Thanks

I know a few people on here are using the Flashpaq with good results, hopefully they will chime in and help you out! I've been considering one of these!

After installing my 35's with 4.10 gears, it was difficult to get moving. On top of that, my speedo was off, and my auto shifted too early.

Since I chipped my Jeep, the auto and speed are perfect. I'm running the 93 octane program, and the off the line power is amazing. My gas mileage still sucks, but MPG is for street queens. The power and performance are worth $4 more per fill up to me.

No to the mpg gains, yes to power. I think it may have something to do with running the 91 octane tune and driving like I stole it...

That's exactly where I'm at!

Okay I get the MPG thing. Power is good. What happens if you couple the Superchip with a cold air induction kit and free flowing mufflers? Or is it better to just go with the Superchip?

You can slap a Hemi 5.7 sticker on the back and call it a day!

(it won't perform like one, but it certainly will SOUND like one! )

This guy knows the deal. If you want power and performance out of a JK you have 3 options.

1.) flash programmers. You'll get excellent results if you're in range for your tire size, or slightly out

2.) gears. regearing the axles makes better power efficiency. The engine doesn't have to work hard to move things if it's got lower gears to work with. i.e. large tires, trailers, big girlfriends, etc.

3.) engine swaps. Go get a diesel or a V8. You'll get lots of power for the money.

Cat backs, CAI's, they stuff just doesn't do much for a 3.8L clean emissions mini-van engine. these aren't Chargers, Mustangs, or Road Runners. You can't make them fast, just like you can't lift a Galaxy and slap on 35's and expect it to offroad.

Yeah, but I really really like how it sounds. Doing 0-60 in 4 seconds or 100mph is a recipe for disaster on a brick with 35" tires, but no reason I can't enjoy a rumble while cruising the mall...

I love mine so far. Im only running the 87 tune right now but even that gave me noticeable improvements in throttle response and acceleration.

I think I am going back to the 87 tune. Can't see much difference between that and 91. I too saw a big difference between the 87 tune and stock.

Even with those 35's on there, i'm thinking of getting one myself and running 33x10.5's

I have them in each on mine and Briana's rigs- worth EVERY penny. Hers went from 17/19 MPG to 18/22 MPG. Mine went from crap to crap, but I'm running 35's and 4.88's (still averaging 16.5 MPG). These are REAL MPG numbers (miles driven divided my gallons filled), not by the trip computer.
There is also a slight, but noticable, gain in power, especially past 2,700 RPM's.
Don't think twice- do it.
Call Tom at TruckCustomizers.com Great guy, and the best prices I've found- tell him Mark from NY sent you- Mark W.

So with the super chips you can delete the "toon" , and take it in for service and leave no traces on the ecu?

If so I might try one out. My last two turbo cars had them. Big gains. I know Im not going to be close to this,, but I have read good things about the tranny shifting better.

in the user interface there are all the options and different tunes. One of them is "stock tune".
When you plug the programmer into the port for the first time the first thing it does is read the jeeps computer and copies it. This way you can always go back to stock with the push of a button.

I just bought a new 2010 4dr Rubicon...and I immediately put on a Superchips Flashpaq, Gayle Banks intake and Cat Back exhaust... because with 33 inch tires I installed, the factory performance was kinda sluggish, I noticed a distinct improvement and it feels and sounds a lot better... no race car mind you..But noticeable Torque gains when climbing hills..gas mileage is only 14-15, wish it was better...But its a Jeep...

i used a flashpaq on my 05 magnum r/t. i can't say i was terribly impressed by what it did for me when compared to the cost. it felt maybe a little peppier, but that was probably more due to throttle response improvement than any actual power gain. i did see about a 1mpg increase over stock, though.
keep in mind the flashpaq was out before anyone had cracked the new hemi's computer, so fuel and timing tables were not able to be tuned yet.
from my research, the diablosport predator seems to be more popular. popular doesn't mean better necessarily, but i hear more good things about it than the flashpaq.

any time you mess with the pcm's calibration, you risk voiding your warranty. if a potential issue can be traced back to the re-calibrated pcm, i'd expect so.
it won't void the warranty on your suspension for example, but any problems with the engine, trans or axles could possibly be construed as having been caused by the programmer.
to be safe, you should always put the stock tune back on before going in for service, not only for warranty concerns (though i hear they can trace any updates or revisions to a pcm now), but the dealership may also have some updated flashes for the pcm that they will apply while you are in for service. if they do that, it erases your custom tune, meaning you now have a $300 paperweight as the tune can only be used on one vehicle at a time. your factory tune is overwritten and stored in the programmer and the programmer does not retain the custom tune once applied to your pcm. it's either one or the other.

really for what they do, they're not worth the risk if you're still under warranty.

You missed the Supercharger. Probably give you the biggest gains except for an actual engine swap
