Default SCT Xcalibrator Vs Superchips

Am I better off getting the SCT Xcalibrator or waiting a month or 2 for the Superchip programmer?

I have had a superchip programmer for my Ram and it was idiot proof.

I don't know much about Superchips but from what I understand SCT (who makes the X-cal) is a child company of Superchips or something like that. Personally I'm going to get an X-cal 2 which from what I've seen is like a Superchips one but cheaper I do believe and they are suposed to be out this week.

Superchips has their Microtuner (part #1755) available for shipping today. Wors on both the V6 & V8. This retails for $465.00.

The X-cal 2 will have software out later this summer for download that will allow you to operate it just like a superchip programmer. As of now it will come to you programmed by your dealer all ready to go.

We sell the X-cal 2 for $369 shipped which is a very fair price for what you get.

Have fun!

Just received the superchips tuner.

Easy as hell to use.

After a short use of the vehicle my initial response was- damn! The delay (between depressing the accelerator and response) is completely gone.

Noticable difference all the way around--hard to believe at first acually.

Now for the bad---although the tuner says that it is designed for 87 octane (the software is supposed to inform you if 91 octane is required for the tuen)--I get "pinging" around 4000-5500 rpms.

Not sure if I should use what is let in the tank of the 87 and the fill-up with 91 and see if that cures the problem (not ideal--being a daily driver that will be wat too pricey).

Any one else have these issues?

I run 91 and I don't consider $2-$3 at the pump more pricey. I totally think it's worth it.

The higher octane may fix your problem (with your car) Also you may be using bad gas. Valero isnt what i would call good gas. You may be paying 2 cents less per gallon at valero, buts thats because water is cheaper than gas. 10 cents more a gallon is 1.30$
