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

You can do the "on-off-on-off-on" method to get the codes displayed on your EVIC then you can look them up here by doing a search, or post them and I'm sure someone will help you.

I don't think it should be a problem hooking up the SC though.

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

I'm hoping mine gets squared away, just did a couple 0-60's with 91 tune and a tank of 93 octane and ran 8.15! That would be slower than stock. Their engineers are working on it.

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

Superchip finally came out with tunes for the 4.7L Gen II. I installed the 87 octane tune a couple days ago and I'm pretty happy with the results. Stock, you have to wind the Gen II up pretty high before you get any power - so standing starts are kinda lethargic. With the 87 tune it feels like I have power from the first press of the pedal. Also, when stock, there was a little throttle lag - not horrible (like the '05 CRD I drove at a GSW) but still noticeable. Throttle lag seems to be gone now.

Another nice thing about the tune, which I really didn't expect, was better downshifting behavior with the Autostick. I downshift on some hills rather than using the brake (I love the Autostick!) - prior to the tune I'd frequently have to press the brake to slow down enough to then have the gearing take over. With the new tune, the downshifting seems more proactive - I feel a more positive deceleration.

According to the EVIC (yeah, I know it's probably not a truly accurate measure) I think mileage is improved about 1 mpg.

All in all I'm pretty happy with it - I really was quite skeptical - if Superchips can make my Gen II perform this nice, why couldn't Jeep do it from the factory?

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

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

is there a list of what exact options are available in the tuner for our jeeps. I saw one somewhere but can’t find it now?

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

hey guys I'm new to the board and I am considering getting the SC tuner but I'm curious about what kind of gains I can expect with the 91 tune. I have an 04 WJ Freedom with the 4.7 h.o V8. Would the gains be different compared to the non h.o V8? I appreciate any advice. thanks!

Is this worth it for the I6 4.0 1999 WJ?
