Superchips World's Best Selling Tuner Programmers
The Science behind Superchips
A Superchips programmer downloads new information to your vehicle’s
computer, and stores the original information in case you ever want to go back
(you won't). The real value of a programmer is the work and experience that
goes into that new information. You don’t get that expertise by being in the
business for just a few years. At Superchips, their engineering teams adjust
all of the elements that affect vehicle power: air/fuel ratio, fuel injector
flow rates and spark timing. We also tune shift characteristics of an automatic
transmission for maximum acceleration and a performance feel. Thirty years ago,
these results would have required rejetting a carburetor, reworking the spark
advance on the distributor and installing a transmission shift-improvement kit.
Today, it’s knowing how to read fuel and spark maps, knowing exactly where to
push the limits and testing, testing, testing. There are several key factors
to creating a “tune” for your vehicle. First, it has to maximize power without
causing you headaches. That means no broken parts caused by the increased power.
One of the measurements we use in our testing is Exhaust Gas Temperature (EGT).
This is especially critical in turbo diesel applications. It’s easy to create
really impressive power increases in these applications, but a skyrocketing
EGT is going to lead to broken engine parts, no questions asked. Superchips
delivers Holy Crap performance without sacrificing durability.
Why a Superchips Programmer?
The more you know about Superchips programmers, the more you’ll
see the advantages that 25 years of engineering expertise delivers to Superchips
customers. A Superchips programmer is the secret to unlocking the performance
potential of your vehicle. You will get your biggest power gain per dollar with
a programmer compared to any mechanical part you might change. Superchips programmers
work with almost every cold-air intake package, low-restriction exhaust system
and even some aftermarket throttle bodies, so it will maximize your power as
you make other modifications to your vehicle. Since the early 1980s, vehicles
have been equipped with engine control management systems, aka computers. The
engineers at the automaker have a lot on their minds when they create the calibration
for a new vehicle. Believe it or not, maximum horsepower and torque are rarely
part of the equation. Sure, they want good horsepower and torque numbers, but
they have to calibrate for the least-common denominator, not for the performance
enthusiasts. Good enough, is…well…good enough. This leaves a lot of power on
the table that Superchips can deliver without exchanging a single part on your
car or truck. Superchips can also deliver fuel savings, if that’s what’s most
important to you. And the ability to switch back and forth as you want.
Superchips' full-line of programmers offer the power and fuel
economy you expect with quality and execution that will impress you. The Superchips
hand-held units are easy to use and – depending on whether you use a Mileage
XS, Flashpaq or Cortex – they come with a host of additional features. There
is a lot more value that Superchips delivers. The ability to read and reset
computer fault codes without a trip to the dealer and minimum service charge.
The power to alter the shift characteristics of your automatic transmission
to meet your tastes. The programmer can display acceleration data and more than
a dozen sensor readings in real time. And the ability to recalibrate the speedometer
after you’ve changed tire diameter or axle gear ratio.
