superchips feedback

I was wondering if anybody has used or heard anything about the superchips tuner. Is it a decent tuner or is it junk?

almost everyone is gonna say go with a SCT. even if you can get a good deal on the superchips, save your money and go with a SCT. Your trans and your wallet will thank you in the long run. AS far AS I know SCT is the only tuner that controls the trans in the 6.0L.

Are you looking to get better MPG or alot more HP?

Some would rather you talk about their mom than the superchips. Mpg gains are not that great. Power gains are good. I would go sct. That is what I run and it works great

I have had both the Superchips and the SCT Xcal3. The superchips is the safest for the motor, but the SCT will control the trans and save it in the long run. Somebody on here can write you a tune for the SCT that will be safe on your motor. But your right foot will increase your fuel milage no matter what tuner you go with.
