Yes and it wouldn't work because of a recent dealership visit. They must have used a new Starscan update code which Hypertech doesn't have yet so I need to wait a few days or longer for them to update.

Nope, still waiting to hear back from Hypertech. They need to update the new dealer calibratation and told me it could take up to a week.. Not very pleased so far.

haha, you may at this point.

Nah, I spoke with someone in tech support last night and they said they already have that specific dealer calibration in their system and I would have the update today or tomorrow.

The only reason I went to the dealer is for them to top off my fluids and check my transmission fluid level. I'll probably have to go through this everytime I drop the Jeep off there.

On a side note, I'm currently averaging 19.5 mpg's with no highway driving after the ported TB install.

Re: 3.7l performance love

The 93 tune is going to be worth going through all of this.

Re: 3.7l performance love

And man it's good to have a 93 tune when on the interstate driving up steep hills.

I sure hope so.. I can use 91 right? I don't believe I have seen 93 in my area.

First setting will be programmed for regular octane until my tank is empty, then I'll try out the premium octane tune just to see if I can feel a difference besides a lighter wallet.

x2, its good to do that anyways. I noticed a difference in the 87 tune and with the 93 tune........................ WOW.

I was able to keep up with a, hugely lifted, diesel f-250 the other day
