      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Hypertech Programers

Recommended Posts

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

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

    • The only thing to use them for, If I had one!  
    • Utube Randy Newberg spring bear hunts. He has a ton of DIY info on spring bear hunting
    • I've never used electric jacks, or hydro. I've heard they are pretty nice, and guys like them. It will be interesting to see how you feel about them after a season or two. I'd like to hear your input on them after you've used them awhile.
    • Yes, out of 100lb logs so they can't carry it away!
    • Really ufatz, that's how tomorrow  will affect fishing?? It all depends on what your fishing for. If I'm just off the flats chasing walleyes it would be interesting to see if they work there way up on top mid day. Probably not. To much of a short window.. 
    • Are fuses necessary on an on board charger?  Manual chargers do not have them,  is there a reason for them on the on board charges. I was given a system with a bank that may not have been working correctly, possibly blowing the fuse repeatedly.  My system would not be hooked up to an alternator on the engine so I'm wondering if it is fine to use the charging bank without the fuses.  The orange charging light comes on when I hook the wires directly up to a battery. I'm asking because I don't want to go through the bother of wiring this thing in my boat if I can't get it to work right. Also, I would technically only need 2 of the 3 banks to work, but I like the idea of repairing it to its potential.
    • My bait is getting hit but the bear does not like the large, cinnamon gum drops i added to the bait! He will drag them out and move on to other tasty treats. I do have red licorice to add next time.
    • Thanks...  Only truck in our neighborhood anyway....
    • Better than breaking your arse slipping on the ice.  
    • Yes!  There is no question the eclipse will affect fishing! The eclipse will draw peoples attention away from fishing and the casual angler will be all wound up about watching the event. They will not be paying attention to anything else and surely not to fishing. The result will be far fewer anglers on the stream and YOU will have more room to fish and less competition. THAT is how the eclipse will affect fishing.
