I would think that on the lower settings, they'd be about the same.

I personally dont trust anything made by Hypertech (or Superchips for that matter)

Don't waste your money. I cant say for sure about ppe but with my hypertech max energy I noticed very little difference on level 1. I bought it for fuel mileage but I got worse. The power was a joke. You won't get better mileage in reality cause the tuner will tell you what you want to hear. My speedometer said 70mph and I was only going 66-67mph according to my gps. I caught them in a lie basically. No wonder everyone says the truck runs smoother and quieter and gets better fuel mileage. With all the hype about tuners though I'm sure this will fall on deaf ears. Hypertech gave me my money back except for 20 bucks for shipping, but it took a month. Later, Steve.

id stay away from the hypertech, i had one and when you put the settings back to stock it leaves stuff behind. caused my truck to fry the PCM and that was a 800 dollar fix.

What do you mean you caught them in a lie, Hypertech's tuning doesn't affect your speedometer unless you input that you have a tire size larger than stock. That being said I don't doubt that your speedo was 3-4 mph off compared to your GPS, but I would venture to say that 99% of speedos are going to be off.
