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

No it was definently 0-60 each time.


UPDATE:^^^ I just tried reinstalling the program. This time, i unplugged the cord for my ipod and took out the cd from the cd player. I noticed the install took a little longer.

BIG difference!!!!! Feels like i'm driving a totally lighter car. I feel bad for ranting earlier. I think only half the program got installed, for whatever reason. It would not down shift at all when i punched it around 20-35 miles per hour, like i said earlier, it felt like a dead pedal. Then actually one time it was acting like a dead pedal and then all of a sudden around 50mph it kicked in like a s.o.b and i took off. I think there was a glich or something the first couple times. Like i said, maybe the ipod being plugged in did something, even though it was turned off.

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

Anyone use this on the 4.0L? Very curious. I"d like to get one if there are noticeable differences after installing it.

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

Another note, today i tried the towing tune and it got f'ed up again, same symptoms as before. Then it dawned on me, i have an aftermarket amp. So every time i would turn the key to the on position when installing the tune i was also turning the amp on. In the directions it says very clearly to turn everything off. So i disconnected the remote turn on lead on the amp, everything was back to performance mode. So i would just like to remind everyone that uses this product make sure you take out any cd's in the cd player, do not have your ipod plugged in, and make sure your amp is disconnected if you have one. Also it seems like the rev limiter and shift points cannot be adjusted on our wk's. Scott let me know if you can on yours.

Good call on making sure the amp is turned off... I turned my radio off when I installed my 91 tune, and I don't believe my amp turns on unless my radio is turned on. I'll have to double check that though.

As far as the rev limiter and shift points are concerned, I was able to adjust mine.

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

What did you set the limiter and shift points to? When i went to raise the limiter the programmer would only let me raise it to 500 rpms?! I was like wtf, that doesnt make any sense. Then again that may have been due to my amp still being hooked up.

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

I think I bumped the limiter to 6200? I can't remember lol.

I set the shift points to 5800 IIRC.

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

Did that seem to help performance?

I don't know if just using the tune, or if upping the WOT shift points did it, but under normal driving, even under very light throttle I don't shift out of first until about 2400 and maybe 2200 out of 2nd. It pulls harder above 2500 RPM for sure.

I should reinstall the stock tune, update the tuner, and then update a new 91 tune with the amp disconnected just to be sure that it is done correctly.
