So, tell me about a superchip. I've never had anything to do with that type of performance upgrade. But by the sounds of it is pretty popular with you guys. So, tell me about it.
Would this be something that I should be looking at? http://bit.ly/13a7H9B

Re: Superchip.

If your doing just bolt ons (CAI and exhaust) then the superchips will work. I had it on my 99 4.7 but was going more in depth with my build so I stepped up to the SCT tuner with a custom tune from FlyinRyan

my opinion the superchips is better then the diablo for a stock,cai, and exhaust jeep. if your customizing your engine more i'd get the diablosport for a custom tune.

the superchips also has tranmission adjustments that the diablo can't do.

Re: Superchip.

I ran the Superchips on the 2006 Dodge Ram QC 4x4 that I owned before the WJ. It had the 4.7 and it made it much nicer to drive. I used the tow tune (premium) when I pulled a 1968 Plymouth Fury hone from Arizona to Nebraska and I was really impressed. I installed an Airaid mid pipe, 68MM throttle body, and a Magnaflow 3" in/out in the stock 3" pipe. With OD off I ran about 2500-3000 on the highway and it sounded AWESOME! This is the same formula I want to apply to the WJ.

Thanks for the advice everyone! I did buy a Superchip, tried out the performance tune today and love it!! Better throttle response, better acceleration! Very happy with it!

Re: Superchip.

Is the transmission tune option available? I used it on my Ram and it made a nice difference.

From what I can tell it doesn't have a specific transmission tune. With the performance tune it does change the shift patterns. As well as the heavy or light towing tune also changes it as well.

Anyone know if Superchips is open today? It's a holiday here in Canada but I keep getting the "techs are in a meeting message" that I was getting all weekend too!
