I don't follow you. "Installed"? It's not a reflash of the PCM like Diablo??? Where does it get installed, in the box? My knowledge of Superchips is :down:
Have heard of them, but don't really know what it is they actually do. :thumbsup:

That's what I'm wondering as well. I bet it is just a flash or a "programmer" like the Diablo. We'll see I guess.

i'm sorry guys, its a programmer like the diablo, but the superchips are suppose to be better. the guy said he could make his own settings on it, and put it in. i guess you should have some experience with these programmers just to be safe. hes installing it for free.

Man those things are complete garbage. You can't expect to even get half of that HP with a professional tune on a stock car. 35 HP is a LIE. Cancel your order and buy the HP tuners stuff.

Read up on them a bit. Seems like a good outfit, been around for a while. I always used Hypertech on my Trans Ams and was satisfied with the fan temp adjustments and shift firming alone, so any hp was gravy. I would guess the SC and Diablo are pretty similar--both allow for parameter adjustments over and above their stock performance tune. D claims 20 hp due to leaning the AFR. I'm interested in how SC gets the hp they claim, timing, fuel curve, AFR or what? Your results will be good to hear! :thumbsup:

hey guys, i just got the superchip, the 1-4 skip shift is gone thank god, the car seems to drive alot smoother, the car runs cooler, one weird thing is that the exhaust system is a bit deeper, i took my buddy out and got on it and he noticed right away. i did not change the rev limiter though, i was going to get a opinion from you guys, cause i dont know too much about that??? overall, it seemed like a good buy, i can notice the hp increase to, but they say you will notice more after like 100-200 miles or so.:thumbsup:
