Hey, Thanks everyone for the feed back, yes I know that the HP/ft.lbs is not exact, and I did say right at the begining of my post that they were approxomate. I just took what each company said that there gain was with that product and added it all up, but boy it sure stired up some conversation. As for the output of the 1704, I went to Superchips web site and that is what it said there, and on the box. It has 3 power settings 40hp, 50hp, and 80hp, I don't know, could be more HP, just repeating what I read, sure feals like alot more HP to me. I just know that the bottom line is when I say Giddy-Up, She Really Turns Loose Alot Of Horse's. Last night after I opened it up to High Performance and went out and played with it for a bit, I had exited off the highway to turn around and come back down the highway, and before I was at the bottom of the entrance ramp I was doing just over 80, it just pushes you back into the seat and holds you there til you get off the throttle. It would be fun to put it on a dyno and see what the real HP/torque is, but what ever it is, it has impressed the sh-- out of me. And just for the record, I am not some young kid with a big diesel truck for a toy, I am 53, and I do not see speed limit sign's as a challenge anymore, Well maybe after last night I will for a day or two, and then reality will set back in, but Dam it was fun, like driving a high performance Mustang.

I'm not sure why they never did anything about it, but what they have on the box is based on tuners for gas motors. It's always bugged me. As for the web-site, they may have changed the way they comment on gains. Originally it was 150HP for the HP tune which was true, but was peak up in the 3500RPM range, not peak to stock peak which is like 2800 RPM where the increase was only 80-90HP. That's what everyone else used, so it appeared skewed when they did it the other way; but it does make a lot more power way up the RPM range. If you'll push it to 100MPH, you'll find it's still pulling hard. It can be scary.
They got blasted for there HP gain method, and rightfully so based on what all other products used which was a more fair comparison to stock.
