If you are just interested in the HP and TQ increases then those figures might not seem too interesting but what we are selling you is far beyond just those two figures. We clean up the fly by wire throttle responce to make it feel more like a cable which drastically changes seat of the pants performance overall.

You will also be running more efficiently so there is a good possibility for mileage increases.

The there are the additional options like our trans settings, tire and gear recalibrations, and speed limiter increases to optimize your entire driving experience.

Hey don't just take my word for it, give it a try. With our money back guarantee you have 30 days to decide if the product is right for you or not.

Do you have any kind of data relating to just how much it affects the gas mileage in the 4.6 2v with the 4 speed? I don't drive my truck very hard very often and this would be the most useful part of it to me. Also, I think it was asked before, but would it increase the power and efficiency of the truck after an intake and exhaust were installed?

Our mileage data is provided to us through advocates and beta testers who have used the product pre release. Although there are limitless conditions to be tested that can offer different results including weather conditions and elevation as well as different users driving styles that can play a major part in how mileage gains are received the majority who tested the product have seen mileage gains of between 1-2 mpg on the interstate where they can get to a cruising speed.

At this point we do not have specific files to offer you for the addition of a CAI kit. However now that the 09 tuning has been released our Ford team can now concentrate on that option and should have tunes for many of the most popular CAI kits on the market very soon.

We have no issues with you running a cat back exhaust, TB spacer, or shorty headers and you should definitely see an improvement with those products combined with the Superchips programmer.

The numbers originally posted are only for the 3 valve 4.6L.

If there are any 2 valve models being sold in 09 they are carry over from the 08 models.

Here are the numbers for the 04-08 F150 4.6L 2V engines:

91 performance provided gains of +15 RWHP and +17 RWTQ
87 Performance provided gains of +9 RWHP and +14 RWTQ
Tow produced gains of +6 RWH and +12 RWTQ

Nice. So if I used it I would get 9hp and 14tq. That is a lot better than the 2hp for the 3v with 87 octane.

Yep, that's what our test trucks gained when dyno tested with the tune installed at our facilities.
