4 Wheel Parts recommended Hypertech...then I joined here...

Hi!

New here. A few days ago purchased a Hypertech 3 stage programmer from 4 Wheel Parts. Programmed in Stage 1 today to see the difference from stock on my 99 F250 with 202k on the truck. Auto trans. 4wd.

Gotta say it wasn't too bad. But am I doing ok w/ this programmer? I still have two stages to go and keeping in mind this is a work truck that I don't wanna spend a fortune on, or decrease dependability too much.

The guy at 4 Wheel swore by it, but said he would sell me any that I wanted - they were all pretty much the same as far as programmers go. Banks, Superchips, Bully, Edge etc... Also said I could bring back in 30 days for any reason. So....

Opinoins?

With 200,000 miles I would stick with it. Hypertech is VERY safe...

Then I'm guessing that this DP company that you guys are talking about is for racing. I'm not racing, I'm working.

I really appreciate the heads up!

NO NO NO... Nothing like that. If you already have the hypertech then stick with it for a while, a chip will always out perform a programer. You need to get a set of gauges, and maybe an intake and exhaust.

My truck is a WORK truck, gets better or the same mileage then stock, better power for towing... If you can return the programer then by all means do it but if not keep it, it will do what you need.

so if I get an F5 with say the 120 program and I buy a programer (STC with DP tunes of a 120 program) the DP F5 will out preform the DP STC?
