New Chip?

Hey Guys,

I have an 11 year old Superchips tuner/chip installed for that long and was wondering if technology has caught up in that if I were to put in a new/different chip, would there be better performance?? Mine has a maximum upgrade of "110 hp", but that's not anywhere close to reality, at least by my feel.

I've done some searching, and found this interesting looking one, https://www.dieselpowerproducts.com/...werstroke.aspx but would like to hear from some guys here, if possible, as to what the best chip would be for giving the rig a good kick in the pants.

Thanks in advance,

Andy

You are right on the HP gains. With a stock truck you won't see much more than 40Hp due to fuel flow through the stock injectors.

The best chip out there right now is a PHP Hydra chip with custom tunes. But you still won't see the actual Hp gains that is shown unless you upgrade your injectors.

So in your opinion, would it just be a lateral move to go with a different chip unless I were to go with bigger injectors?

From what I have read about Super Chips it will be a upgrade to go with a actual chip that is programed for the vehicle even without larger injectors.

One of the pluses of a actual chip is that you can get a few extras like a high idle, no start, and other setting. Also with the Hydra you can get new tunes for it if you do go with larger injectors

I've heard and repeated 40 horse is max for stock injectors. Then someone told me 80 horse. I don't know. I would guess much more than either of those numbers and you just start throwing more money at broken parts.

Thanks guys. I looked at injectors here, https://www.dieselpowerproducts.com/...section=-1149-

but that's Greek to me as well. Any recommendations there?

Stage 1ís if you tow heavy, Stage 1.5ís if you donít. Both will work with stock HPOP and fuel. Those are the highest quality rebuilds available.

Thanks. How much of gain would I realistically be looking at? What about MPGs? This may be a dumb question, (I'm full of them, especially when it comes to mechanical things) but is there any change to the note of the engine or exhaust with the added fuel? I leave early to open my gym so a guttural roar may not be a good idea

If you go with the stage ones and a chip to run them you might or might not see a mileage gain, it will all depend on how you drive.

As for noise, they should be no nosier than your truck right now. That is as long as you don't change out the exhaust to a more open one.

OK, thanks for the great advice, as always! Next step is to get the injectors and the chip. Is there a certain brand or place I should be looking at? I'll be going with the 1.5s as I'm not doing any heavy duty towing at all. I just want a nice smooth power upgrade.
