new toy on its way


well I finally did it and on tuesday morning I ordered a superchip flashpaq for my truck.
I'm so excited to see what kind of difference it will make.
so far after my air intake install I filled my tank and with no hiway driving only stops and goes to work and shopping with the wife, I so far am at 461km to a tank and the light just came on tonight on the way home from work.
usually I got about 390km-400km to a tank with same driving.
any others in same boat?

I usually get 600-700 km per tank, but that's with a 2.3 2wd. I find the warmer the weather the better. There's about a 100 km difference in range winter vs. summer.

Well My superchips came in on friday and I installed it , on sunday my wife and I took a drive from bradford to blue mountain village for the day and even though my tank was already just below 3/4 I filled up on the way back and noticed that my trip meeter was 554km and I wasn't even close to empty yet...I have never gotten over 500km to a tank since I purchased my truck. now I filled up this will be the true test .
I have also noticed a bit more power aswell.

I noticed the shifting of the truck was much better.

Should the programmer read as "1865"? 1856 refers to a programmer for a diesel.

I am guessing that this programmer can program more than one vehicle? The 1865 does others like the F150, Mustang and Excursion.

Nice. Looking to hear how well it works in the long term.

For warranty, you may need to put back to factory settings. That's my biggest concern with using one of these programmers on my truck.

1855 is the diesel programmer..

1865 is the gas.

Yes the vehicle works with many different ford vehicles.

sorry about my typing must have read it wrong , yes I typed the incorrect programmer
anyways I do have it on performance tune and will see how the first full tank will do.
in regards to taking it to the dealer for service I will just revert it back to stock.
