I'll revive this thread...

I just installed it in my 2014 Grand Cherokee Limited (V6). Took about 20 mins.
Prior to install, the new 8 speed tranny wasn't thrilling me..
It was slow, slugged and upshifted about 5 times before 40 MPH..
Not a great ride for sure..

Tonight, after the Hypertech Interceptor install, its a totally different car! Shifts are fast & crisp. SOTP feel is there and now, this thing pulls & shifts flawlessly!

No need to go into Sport mode or kill the ECO either..
Feels great now! Throttle is right there as soon as my foot depresses the accelerator!!

Not looking for a world beater, just increased performance, and this certainly cleans up all the lugging from all those shifts... Definitely recommend it..

doubt it.. all it does is send different readings to the PCM to make adjustments for more of a performance feel..

Can you post a link to where you purchased it, and do you think it affects your mpg.

Doesn't the hyper tech module work in conjunction with the stock ecm? I don't believe it touches your stock tune. I had one on my Durango and all I did was pull it off before I took it to the dealer.

Re: Hypertech Interceptor

Correct, the Hyper tech doesnt mess with any of the stock tuning, it just works with it to increase performance/responsiveness.

You can get it anywhere.. just search Hypertech Interceptor or go to their site & find the part #

Usually Jegs, Summit, Auto Anything, or Amazon have it
