Re: Any new Updates heard for a WK2 Programmer - BullyDog, HyperTech, SuperChip

Hey Scott,

I have a 3875 which was used on a 2008 Grand Cherokee with the HEMI. Now that I have a 2011 also with the HEMI I was wondering if the 2011 application will be available on the 3875 or on a whole new tuner. Thanks in advance.

Re: Any new Updates heard for a WK2 Programmer - BullyDog, HyperTech, SuperChip

This post is for everyone wanting to know why their 2011 5.7 feels so laggy. I was adding PIDs to my data logging software last night and this morning I found out just how bad the ETC delay really is and it is by far the worst I have ever seen before. When you floor it from a stop it takes a whopping 2.5 seconds for the throttle blade to open all the way (about the 30 MPH mark). Just eliminating that delay would likely shave a full second or more off the 0-30 and 0-60 times. Also the timing advance is very low especially considering the throttle is not even open more than 20-30% yet. 5-6* of advance to start with then goes up to 13* in the midrange and 18.5* max. Hopefully I can get it to log the commanded A/F later. I have heard it runs 12.2-12.3 A/F and I would imagine it has a large PE delay (2 seconds or a certain RPM like 3,500 RPMs for example before PE is enabled) to go with the ETC delay.

Nope no retard shown just very conservative timing. I have a blend of 87 and 93 octane in the tank at around 91 octane so it should not knock at all. That ETC lag is by far the biggest reason the Hemis feel slow. I drove a 2011 charger RT before the Jeep and it felt just as slow and laggy.

So with the tsb out to make the hemi's shift like a "6 speed" now will that be lost with a superchip downloader? Or will superchips take that in to account with the programing? Whenever they come out with a tuner for these.

Yes, we will continue to offer model year coverage updates to the 3875 for free till the day the product can't fit anymore info.

There is always room for improvement from the factory settings. If they were to go super agressive their vehicle line mileage credits would start to go into the toilet and the EPA would be leaning on them to build another smart car to fill that loss.

As far as I know we will still be offering an advanced transmission tuning feature so you can take advantage of shift point adjustability from part throttle to WOT.

Re: Any new Updates heard for a WK2 Programmer - BullyDog, HyperTech, SuperChip

We have some files to write and test once written but the new built in security that allows them to stay written is posing a problem for us at the moment.

We will get there but it's still too far away for me to offer you a guess at this time.

Sorry for the delay.

Scott
