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

Has anyone heard any news on release dates for an ECM Performance Programmer? Spoke with a BullyDog Tech in January and he reported they had one in "planning" but too soon for a release date. I've gotten zip from the other manufactures.

With BWoody Air Intake released & 3 Flavors of Cat-back, was looking for a programmer too!

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

The new superchips program looks fantastic!

I have spoken with a manager there and managed to have gotten myself on a beta test list when they reach that part of testing.

The product I think is slated for 2011 sometime (probably later in the year, maybe Q4).

I will be sure to start a new thread on my experiences with Vivid as I test them on my WJ...

Might want to hold out for that?

Grantb, sounds great, hope you enjoy the beta time & the sneak peek! Scott (superchip) thought it should be out on market by March, but that's anyone's guesstimate until arrives! I'm still in waiting for my WK2 to be delivered, so my garage is accumulating boxes.

I'm interested in the dongle add-on component to be used with existing Andriod devices. I'm especially interested if they offer more than the canned pre-programed setups and allow the User to make separate adjustments.

When do you expect to get a hands-on to the beta hardware?

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

I am keeping the pressure on my Superchips contact, but no ETA at this point (which sucks).
I will be sure to post a link probably in the performance section somewhere!!

For the viewers who didn't check your your link to a previous post - this is what we are talking about here-

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

My unofficial word as recently as today is...

To: Grant Boyles
Subject: RE: Vivid


Nothing yet definite. Several months would be my best guess. We are in testing and I have seen the screen and optional displays. Really cool stuff. Can’t wait till this becomes available. No word on price yet either. Still have no idea if any of this will get Beta tested outside the confines of this building. We have done Beta testing in the past with folks outside the building, but we will see how we handle this new technology.

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

GrantB, Thanks for the update... but Maj Bummer on the Timeframe. Maybe Scott (Superchip Rep) can provide a little more light in his Vendor thread.

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

I was told that it was being pushed back to the end of the 2nd quarter. Unfortunately even I am not getting a straight answer on a time frame due to the fact that our R&D team is still working on some of the apps we want to have included in the product.

Hang in there guys, It will be worth the wait!

Scott

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

Would this work w/ the Pentastar?
Is there something in the works for that? Definitely need a programmer....

Yep, the Pentastar is top priority!

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

Great Scott! (heheh)

Now, just so I don't get all excited and then let down.... will programming software for the pentastar be sold without needing to buy this Archos Android device? Either in a stand alone Superchips programming hardware or as potentially just a piece of software that can be loaded on other android devices (such as Droid X)?

I'm sure this awesome-amazing-doeverything-pretty-classy-monster-all-in-one Archos droid programmer thingy will cost quite a pretty penny eh?

I just need to tune the Pentastar!
And maybe down the road use it for a nice centrifugal supercharger to go with it???


PS.... I'll volunteer for testing if you need!

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

All of our current apps along with 2011 support (including the Pentastar motor) will be integrated into VIVID.

We will be offering a base package called the AVID which will includes the dongle and software for use in droid based products with version 2.1 or higher.

Stay tuned for more details.
