Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Superchips Tuners (But Were Afraid To Ask)


Superchips

Some questions are best left unasked. Should I have waited 30 minutes after eating before jumping into that pond? Should I have imported a Croatian bride sight unseen? Should I have seen the doctor before it turned green?

Other questions, though, are best left asked. Is this half and half expired? Is that hitchhiker twitching too much to pick up? What’s the difference between the different Superchips programmers? Today, we’ll answer one of those questions. Since dairy and dudes on the side of the road with their thumbs drawn are beyond our expertise, we’ll stick with what we know: Superchips.

And we want to help make it even hotter, which is why we’ve added a new Street Scene body kit and spoiler to make it look mean.  And now you can give all that show some serious go with one of our performance chips. There’s a handful of tuners that already support the 2010 Camaro, here’s the breakdown:

  • Hypertech Max Energy – For the 6.2L engine, you get an estimated 12+ hp, 20+ft-lbs of torque (manual transmission)

The Easy-Bake Recipe for a Souped-up Diesel Rig


The following recipe for Triple-Baked Diesel Casserole is guaranteed to turn your diesel truck into a red-hot race rig. Careful baking lets the natural juices flow while a quick simmer extract the powerful flavors and tasty torque lurking deep inside your truck’s powerplant.

Ingredients:
1 Superchips Flashpaq Tuner
1 MBRP Turbo-Back Diesel Exhaust System
1 Quadzilla Monster Air Intake Kit
2 cups elbow grease
6-pack of sudsy brew
1 dash of tire smoke, according to taste

Directions:
Park your rig in a flat, shady spot and allow to cool. While your truck sits cooling, crack open a sudsy brew and open the other ingredients. Each component includes a complete instruction sheet—familiarize yourself with these while sipping the icy beverage.

The most labor intensive part of this recipe is the exhaust kit. Once your rig is cool, remove the factory exhaust and down pipe. Toss the remains aside. Carefully follow the included instructions and mount the MBRP exhaust kit and down pipe to your truck. This free-flowing system increases power and torque, decreases EGTs and lends a throaty rumble to your rig. Once bolted-up, let the truck sit while you prepare the cold-air intake kit. Crack another brew.

While the exhaust system steeps, open the Quadzilla Monster Air Intake Kit and prepare to blend with the exhaust. Skim the factory intake from the top of your powerplant, being careful not to damage the air sensor. This will prevent the dreaded check-engine light from turning on later. Install the intake kit according to Quadzilla’s directions—stirring occasionally. Once blended, the cold-air intake and the exhaust system rise together to form a free-breathing, power-producing machine. Relax for a spell with another brew, you’ve earned it.

The icing on this performance cake is the Superchips Flashpaq Tuner. Once the intake and exhaust has completely baked, it takes only a few minutes to install the tuner. Again, closely follow Superchips’ directions and plug the consol into your OBD-II port. Choose your tune and set the desired parameters. Now, pop open one final celebratory bottle of suds because your done!

Step into your well-done rig and fire it up. Depending on how closely the recipe was followed, your horsepower and torque numbers should look more like oven settings than factory specs. And, don’t worry—that billowing smoke is coming from the rubber burning beneath your triple-baked diesel rig.
