Quick Plug for Superchips Tuner

well after runnin the superchips tuner for a few months i feel like i should support this product, i used to run an X3 with a custom tune from a SCT tuner down in VA but sold it than recently got a sweet deal on this tuner from craigslist, plugged it in and off we went, has a towing, performance and mpg tune, i have ran the performace tune for awhile and its great, definetly more throttle response and just a much stronger feel, fully adjustable tranny shift points but i left it in the superchips recommended setting, can adjust tire size and clear codes as well, on the performance setting driving it normally occasionally getting into it i averaged 16 mpg all the time no matter what i was doing, recently i have been running the mpg tune and this tune is very very smooth, stays in the higest gear as much as possible when cruising, shifts much faster but still gives you passing power when needed, truck just cruises very well with this tune and idk how much changing my fuel filter helped but ive been driving pretty conservative lately and been getting 18mpg, havent had the towing tune loaded in yet as i havent towed lately, will more than likely use that in the next month or two when i drag the boat up to va, not looking forward to that gas bill tuner or not , anyway i just wanted to let people know about this tuner as not alot of people seem to go for it, i would buy it again any day, luckily if i trade to another ford this should work, btw my truck is a 4.0 Auto tranny, 4.10 gears on 35;s

spend away

You said you used to have the X3, how would you compare the superchips? I'm looking to get a tuner and wonder if one is better than the other.

Yes it was. Got rid of my ranger sold it to amember on here bu he couldn't use it on his truck for some reason got it back and just plugged it up to my 350. Made a huge difference with the transmission shifting. Quite a bit more top end and mid range power. Im impressed again. Still can't figure out why it wouldn't work on his truck??

Superchips is a reputable performance tuner without a doubt. Around these parts, all the offroad shops sell them over every other tuner.
