Hypertech Programers

11 posts in this topic

I was just wondering if anyone has used one of the hypertech programers to reprogram a trucks computer. I have 2002 Silverado and I am trying to decide if the performance upgrade would be the cost of one of these.

Just make sure you check with your dealer if the truck is under waranty!I had a chip put in a ford powerstroke.The chip or something caused the computer to blow.The dealer would not waranty the computer and said if the engine blew they would not waranty it either!!
I guess it was fords policy not the dealers

They aren't suppose to void warrenty or so the are advertised. Plus you can set the computer back to factory settings.

the ford and chevy kit are not the same. ford you replace part of the computer or add/remove a chip depending on you motor. the chevy kit just reprograms the timing. not sure about yours but i do know that the ford version does void it. your best bet would be to get rid of that chevy and buy a real truck. dont you feel like some kind punk yuppie driving that thing around? let me guess??? stepside? some kind of cover on the back so you cant use the bed?

Hey, what's the matter with a stepside with a cover? I have a 97 Ford shortbox STEPSIDE and a leather COVER on the back. I have my fish trap, 2 heaters, power auger, hand auger, 2 five gallon buckets filled with tip-ups, and my lunch box. just giving ya a hard time. Ford's ARE the BEST!!!

Tell me when and where and we will hook them up and you will find out what real power is. If you have a step side it doesn't even count as a truck. It is just a wanta be truck. You can talk all the smack you want but until you have a Chevy you don't even have a truck. I must say though only the rich can afford Ford go to the part store and you will know what I mean. A quick joke for you why is a tampon better than a Ford truck? Well at least a tampon comes with it's own tow rope. Know seriously I'm not asking about how they will work on a Ford never owned one and never will I was wondering how the programmers work with the Chevys.

I don't care whether it's a Ford or a Chevy. If it has an 8-foot bed, it's a pickup with a STANDARD bed, not a long-box. And if it doesn't have an 8-foot bed, it's not a pickup, it's a piece of fool's hardware.

These marketing poofs these days call a 6-foot bed standard, which, of course, we used to call a short-box back in the days when men were men and a pickup was a tool. And, gosh, now there are even shorter-bed things that sort of resemble pickups but really are just passenger SUVs with a bit of open room for luggage.

Nope, when you want to haul lumber or logs or move your daughter to college or bring supplies for a summer at the lake, if you don't have a full-length bed, you ain't got nothing, and had best just swallow your pride and buy a Buick.

Yeah, I feel better now.

There is a law that protects us from the manufactures voiding a warranty just because we chose to put an aftermarket part on the truck.If they said the aftermarket part was the cause they have to prove this, I don't remember the name or code of this law, but if you log on to any one of the truck forums I am sure some on there will know.
As for my baby, I run a 2000 F150 5.4,Super cab,4x4 Offroad, super chip,Airraid filter charger with a K&N , Gibson side exit one tube exhaust, 3:55 gears stock Good years (for now any way), a Paxton super charger with 8PSI pully, extrude honed intake, polished exhaust ports, high flow cats and a set of JBL headers.
The dyno run last summer said 370 hp and 435 torque, any chevy boys care to hook up? smile.gif
It is funny to see the look on the face of a punk with his dadys pontiace tring to impress his buddies when I smokem at the lights.Have several speeds to prove the truck is fast for a 5800 lbs beast.
Getting back to the question at hand though, the Hypertech programers work ok on the chevy's but the Fords don't like them.Your better off getting the Super chip or the Deablo chip, these are designed for Fords and take advantage of Fords notoriusly retarded timing, to change the spark curve and timing to better the fire from the plugs and to open the flow of gas more.Ford has a problem with tring to please every one and not pumping up thier trucks like the could.
Just my two cents,Benny

    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
    • So proud of my 93 year old dad.  It's getting tougher and tougher just getting him out there, but he still knows what to do once there.    
    • I still gotta tag Moose! I'm going for a Tom only!!   (Personal thing) is ,,, I want to do it with my bow
    • Shaggy parasols are coming up in the shade garden again. Yum.  
    • VTX129 has a great point on nothing smaller than 9". I have a HB 998Ci HD unit. The bottom features that I can pick up are incredible- however I sometimes have a problem picking fish up on it. I have tried to keep my SI width narrower to help ID fish. Overall fantastic tool. The hard to soft transitions are easy to see as are rocks and so forth. On the HB units the larger screened ones come with the High Def transducer.  The smaller units come with a compact transducer. You can find some great prices on models that are being phased out - but they also will quit repairing those units sooner as well. Trade off's. Check out Universal Mania and some others online for pricing. Bass Boat central has a lot of info under Humminbird and Lawrance topics.   Good luck   Steve
    • CM I agree...and Chicago seems to find those diamonds in the rough...not sure how their AHL team is or if they have more of these "sleepers" coming up from somewhere but I bet they are right back in the finals within a 2-3 years with or without Q.   Another article that came in last night on Fletch/Wild http://nhl.nbcsports.com/2017/04/25/wild-exit-early-fletcher-stays-positive-a-familiar-refrain-in-minnesota/  You might have to Cut/Paste
    • Same have to give them a try once they come out.
    • Can't wait to test that Sprinker. 
    • lots coming thru for a couple days now.  had fun whistling with a couple yesturday. 
    • I wasn't able to catch it live and when I tried finding it after the fact it wouldn't play on my laptop for some reason. I do admire Bowman for being visibly ticked about their early exit, but I think that may get pushed a little too far. You tick off Q and he might just walk out the door. Bowman just fired one of his buddies and Q isn't too happy about it. We will see how that plays out. I think the Hawks are in a tougher position cap-wise than the Wild and have been for a few years. The difference is they had been getting no-name guys to emerge and contribute. They could be on a very slippery slope in Chi-town. We will see how that plays out.
