Do you have to program it the way you want it?

When i open the box when it arrives is it plug in and go?

thanks

it works by plugging it into the OBD2 port, under your dash. you turn the key on and follow the instructions, you can pick a preset tune, for milage hp or towing etc., or custom set your own preferences, such as shift firmness rpm ranges and etc..

when you open the box, hook it to you pc and dl the updater to make sure everything is up to date and working the best (it takes 10minutes) and then your good to go

Cool, Thanks, I am assuming once its programed you can unplug it and store it, you dont need to leave it plugged in?

I cant wait to get one. Once i get my work situation figured out and some bills paid this will be on the top of my mods list.

Re: Superchips for 99-09 WK, Wj etc.

just leave it plugged in......as soon as you hit the gas it starts the stopwatch...so to speak. My last 0-60 was 6.74(I think) with my current mods minus the TB. But I'd have to look. I dont know how correct it is though. Stock was like 8.??

I'm definently going to be ordering one next week, i tried timing it myself once just by using the trip timer. No tow/haul, traction on, no shifting, and it was somewhere between 7-8 seconds. 6.74 is pretty quick, is that with your manifold, exhaust, intake?

Tempting, I'm sure it's in perfect condition, but at the same time for 25 bucks more i will get an actual brand new programmer and should anything ever go wrong i would have someone to return it to.
