Default Superchips now supporting 2009 F150 V8's

I just wanted to update everyone interested that Superchips is now supporting the 2009 F150 with the 4.6L and 5.4L engines.

Let me know if you have any questions on this product or anything Superchips related.

Pricing? Comparison to a custom tune? What is better bang for the buck? 38hp sounds pretty good, more if combined with CAI and exhaust? I am running an AFE intake, had a magnaflow system but put stock back on as I could not stand how Droney the Magnaflow was at hiway speed. Looking for the power and the economy - obviously not both at the same time, but do a pile of hiway driving - want the economy for that, and when passing or playing, would like the extra hp to play with. Came from a Cummins 5.9 with over 450hp and 800 lb-ft... need to wake up this 5.4 somehow.

Is the +10hp rating for the 4.6 applicable to both the 2v and 3v? I have the 2v, which as we all know is kinda weak, so 10hp would be nice, but more would be even better!

In my opinion the real comparison between a Superchips programmer and a custom tuned product is that we provide our customers with reliable performance, fuel economy, and tuning options that work within current emissions laws.

When you buy a Superchips product you’re getting a programmer from one of the most established companies in the industry known for it's safety and drivability standards that are second to none in the industry.

The Superchips Flashpaq programmer retails at $379 and the Cortex programmer with the included 2 year powertrain warranty retails for $429.

We have several reail dealers available online and in your location that I am sure can offer you competitive pricing on either of the two products.

Now that we have the 09 coverage released the next step is CAI tuning for the F-series gas applications.

Let me know if I can answer any further questions.

Let me double check that data for you and I will post the specifics for each of the 2 4.6L engines if different.

Here is what data I currently have on the product:

5.4L F150 tested:
91 Performance file produced +38 RWHP and +57 RWTQ.
87 Performance file produced +18 RWHP and +43 RWTQ
Tow file produced +12 RWHP and +37 RWTQ

4.6L F150 tested:
91 performance file produced +10 RWHP and +19 RWTQ.
87 Performance file produced +2 RWHP and +4 RWTQ
Tow file produced +3 RWHP and +5 RWTQ

Current options :
- 91 Performance, 87 Performance, Tow, and Save tuning options are available
- Shift point and Shift firmness adjustments
- Speedometer recalibrations available for tire size upgrades between 28" to 38"
and gear changes from 3:08 to 5.13 ratios.
- Speed limiter adjustability
- Rev limiter adjustability: 5.4L From 5500(stock) to 6000rpm's. 4.6L: from 6250 (stock) to 6500rpm's.

I will update the post with dyno graphs as I get them. Any questions on these options feel free to let me know.

No this product will not void your warranty just for being installed on your vehicle. By law the OEM has to prove that any aftermarket product causes damage to the vehicle before they have legal grounds to blatantly void your warranty. See more details about this consumer protection act here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnuson-Moss_Act.

On top of that Superchips puts a great amount of effort into making the product the safest in the industry conforming to current emissions standards while still improving power output and mileage gains in the process.

As an additional benefit, Superchips also designed the product to not leave any traces of the tuning software once the vehicle is been returned to stock and have tested the tuning against the dealer tools which we own to make sure you won't have a problem.

In any case we recommend that you always remove the tuning from your vehicle prior to going in the dealership for service. The dealer by law must keep every vehicle going through their doors up to date on any recalls/updates the manufacturer releases including to the computers.

If your Superchips software was to be left in the vehicle there is a chance that it can be wiped out when such a service is performed making your investment unusable until the software has been reinstalled into the programmer.

So I take it that those 91 and 87 performance files mean which type of fuel you use? If I'm only gonna gain 2 ponies, I guess it wouldn't be very cost effective for me...
