Alright as most of you know after I got the stage 5 Suncoast tranny,I wanted to unleash a lil more HP[and beat the cocky Dodge down the road!:D]ANYWAY........So I got a PPEhot+2 and I love it...
here is the deal,I tried to tune the wife's truck[white 07LBZ in sig below] and all it does is read the stock file and say ''needs update'' see superchips.com .........OK,so I go to the site and try to update,NOW it seems they ''upgraded '' the way the site loads the new tunes or whatever,[[ITS SUPPOSED TO BE EASIER!!!].....when I do get the download right and all,it then tells me I have to have a x64 processor on my PC for this to work........SO I don't wanna spend God knows how much to upgrade the PC just for this!!
I call Superchips and the guy named ''RICK'' tells me with the original receipt they'll do it for 29.99 [and I have the bitch,it's just to find the original receipt!!:mad:]......................OR option number 2........I send it in and they charge me 79.99 to update.......EVEN THOUGH I REGISTERED MY TUNER ON THE SITE PREVIOUSLY AND THEY EVEN HAVE MY SERIAL NUMBER ETC.Sorry for the rant,but I think it's kinda chickenshit for them to treat a guy who has TWO of their tuners.........1 for my diesel[IIRC model 2805 ,I may have the models mixed up but I do own two tuners],and even one for my old 5.3 gasser[model 2815 IIRC] we traded to get the white LBZ....Guess I will call the shop where I bought it and try to get him to dig up the receipt???

Take it back to the guy you bought it from and have him update it for you. If he is a Superchips dealer he should have the proper hardware to update it

Got the guy I bought it from to update the Superchips tuner.......NOW,the new truck has a 85HP/150TQ tune and it is MUCH better,MPG's seemed to improve a good bit also,we'll see with time though!!85 HP added makes a BIG diff....:drinkSure makes the right foot more FUN:rockin

IDK man,I got better mileage on PERF than the MILEAGEXS tune........but it prob was due to truck having PERF only added since day one.....

Oh and as SOON as I get a lift pump,the PPE will stay on 6!!Now I run lvl 6 without issues,but if I get greedy or i show off with the truck I get a 0087[low fuel pressure code]......so that's why I stay on lvl 4!Nothing pisses me off more than killing a Mustang or whatever then have to pull over and reset a DTC for low rail pressure...
