Hypertech - Brand Review For Todays Best Power Programmer

by : andrewb



The hands-down leader in technology for high-performance engine tuning is Hypertech. Modern, computer-controlled vehicles are more complex than ever. The old days of simple, heavy-metal bolt-on power no longer does the trick. As vehicles get more and more advanced, today's tuners and mod enthusiasts are seeking new ways to extract more power and Hypertech sets the pace.

Hypertech follows the rapid advancements in technologies that drastically change the way internal combustion engines operate. The modern engine is controlled by highly technical computer systems, and Hypertech knows computers. Rather than produce performance parts for your engine, Hypertech gives you the power to tweak and tune your vehicle's existing system to give you the most power possible.

And, it's not just power that Hypertech is tuning. Modern ECU's that control basic engine functions also monitor and govern the transmission, brakes, instrument panel, emission controls and heating/air conditioning. Hypertech allows you to tune these functions and gain optimum performance from every facet of your vehicle's operation.

Even if you've installed a dream list of hot rod components, you won't realize maximum gains until you tune it up with Hypertech. Hypertech puts all your ducks in a row by fine tuning the complex programs that control your engine's vital functions. When you're serious about performance, Hypertech is your technology leader. And, for a great selection of Hypertech products, shopping online will pay off.

I Found a few first-hand customer reviews about Hypertech and the brand's products:

"I used the programmer on my 1999 Chevy suburban 5.7 350 before programming the burb was slow like it was meant to be from the factory. it ran well on 87 octane and I got 18-20 mpg at 65, and in town 16mpg. when I programmed the car and noticed a change in the timing (this is good) when driving around town I didn't notice any thing different in till I got on the highway very good pickup, quick response from the gas peddle, and no pining ( 87 octane) that night I was stopped at a light and no one around, I could not believe the power I smoked the tires and went from 0- 60 in a blink of an eye. now that I got that done I did the mileage doing 65 with cruse control I got 19-20 mpg . when I do 55-60 I get 23-24 mpg. I have not tried the higher octane gas (cost too much) the 87 octane works fine for me. the only down side of the programmer to me is If you have another Chevy like me that would use the same programmer you can't because you can only use one programmer for each car. when you use the programmer it retains your old program so if you need to repair or program it back to original."

"This unit is nice and easy to use. While it obviously will not create a new drivetrain for your vehicle it will do enough for the engine and transmission to notice a difference. Allowing the high RPM range in conjunction with stiffer shift points seems to be what allows you to feel the difference. The other nice feature is the tire size and rear end ratio programming. I gained approximately 1.5 mpg on a highway trip. Mix this with a K&N cold air intake and a lower temp thermostat and there will probably be a little more HP. You need to be able and willing to upgrade to super unleaded fuel for the higher octane rating or purchase octane booster from your local parts store or the engine will ping."

"it only took 15 minutes to hook up & the performance gains are great, although i installed a K&N FIPK & JBA shorty headers at the same time. I would highly reccomend it to anyone!!!"
