Superchips: How They Work and Things to Consider

It's no secret that modern vehicle engines are controlled by a computer or PCM (powertrain control module). These PCM's come with a simple factory program that is made to work with the “typical driver”, and doesn’t allow you to modify it for different driving needs. Some of us like to have a little more control over our vehicle than that, and that's why Superchips tuners are so popular. Superchips makes performance programmers - aftermarket tuning that adjusts the engine and drivetrain parameters. These programmers offer multiple pre-built tuning options to increase hp (horse power) and torque by modifying the engines timing and air/fuel mixture among other things. In gas engines, most vehicles will have a low octane option to increase hp and torque, as well as a high octane option that will give you even more “bang for your buck”. The Superchips programmers also give you the ability to adjust transmission parameters such as shift points and shift firmness. You can also adjust for different size tires or gears in order to correct your odometer, speedometer, and shift points. As an added bonus, most vehicles enjoy an increase in mileage due to the increased torque that the tuning provides. Are you convinced that this is the route you want to go with your vehicle? Frankly, we can't blame you.

The Basics

When your vehicle leaves the factory, it comes equipped with tuning loaded in its PCM. This tuning is only as good as the engineer that developed it. No matter how well they did at developing the tuning, a true tuning expert can always improve on it. That’s were Superchips come in. Simply put, Superchips looks at what the factory did, and then does it better. This allows you to get the horse power of a bigger engine, and the mileage of a smaller engine. Another advantage that Superchips gives you over the factory tuning is flexibility. For instance, you can tune your vehicle in “Mileage Mode” when it is being used for daily driving, and then plug the tuner in again to program it in “Tow Mode” just before your trip. Got bigger tires? Just plug your Superchips tuner in and let it correct your speedometer and odometer. Would you like to increase your shift firmness, or adjust the shift points? Not a problem. Or maybe you would like to adjust your speed limiter to correspond with your tire rating. Superchips will do that too.

When you install a Superchips tuner, it allows you to give your vehicle the best performance without being limited by the constraints of the factory settings. You know what you're looking for from your vehicle, and Superchips can help you achieve it.

When you're looking to enhance your vehicle's performance, Superchips is one of the most logical choices you can make. Who better to turn to than a team of engineers that first started working on racing engines? The team behind Superchips knows what it takes to make a vehicle function to the best of its ability, and you can rest assured that you'll be satisfied with your choice. With four different Superchips models to choose from, you're sure to find the one that's right for you.
