2002 4.6 Hypertech

I nstalled the Hypertech Power Programmer III. It took almost 45 mins to install, is that normal? Reason i ask is the truck does not seem to run right. Inconsistant acceleration, poor idle slow downshifts.

Never used the Hypertech programmer before, but if it's any help, the XCAL II I've got for my Mustang loads a tune in a minute or so.

Sounds like you got a problem somewhere....they got a 1-800 tech line?

First time install i've found on both SCT SF3 and my Superchips can take 30mins on the first time run. SCT took longer on a 2010 F150 then the Superchips took on both 2009 and a 2010.

They have to pull the stock file out and build a tune file for that vehicle. strategy #.

Did you check for updates?
I've never used hypertech. but i'd check for software updates. and if that doesn't fit the problem. I'd call tech support. check their website for a 1800 #

Never occurred to me it might be a first time load...good point, but then again, details were sketchy.

Took a quick look on their website...don't know if this will help or not, but....
