Superchip 1845 Question

I did some reading on here about Speedometer Recalibration then called both Superchips and SCT. Both were very helpful and great customer service. I currently have a Superchips 1705 Tri-Mode Tuner and I'm leaning towards the 1845. Anyone have any feedback on the 1845 and what luck have You had with Speedo Recal?

I'm not a fan of superchip but SCT is good.

I use AE to recal the speedo.

The 1705 is ok for an older programmer.

But custom tunes will be much better

You can have Ford recalibrate the speedo for a fee. And then you can pick up a chip with custom tunes (we can help you out here). You will be much happier doing that.

Let me know if you have any questions we can answer for you.

I ask 3 dealers here and all of them told me that if the tire size wasn't an option for your truck year they can't or won't do it.

Then they do not know how to work Ford IDS (their software). You should be able to recalibrate up to a 35" tire. It is done through the ABS module. Jody does it all the time for guys locally.

If you have an OBS truck, you can recalibrate the speedo yourself without the use of any electronics.

I wouldn't be surprised. Maybe because i had 37" on... i got mine recall with AE

One of their "diesel tech" told me that 7.3 does not have injectors cups. That's where i hang up the phone

Yes, run as far away from that dealership as you can.
