Hypertech programmer

Recently purchased a hypertech programmer for a good deal and I gotta say I really like it. The power is really good, drive ability is awesome, shifting is much improved.

What surprised me the most is the difference between the 87 and 91 tune.
According to the hypertech dyno charts theirs not a huge difference but driving wise it's quite a difference especially under normal driving (2k rpm driving around town) or when I have two dirt bikes in the back. I have a Volant I'm going to put back on soon to see how it helps too.

My current setup is a 2010 gmc canyon crew cab with mid travel and 31" tires. Stock intake and exhaust.
I plan to get it dynoed in the next couple months to see where it's at.

Good feedback.

Which engine is that for? The 5-cylinder or V8

For the 5 cylinder. I know I'm getting better mpg but haven't been able to get any real data on it.

So after driving it for a little bit. . . I still love the hypertech! Power and driveability is awesome and the ability to change 87 to 91 is really nice. A trip from Orange County to Lake Havasu is a drive I do atleast 5-7 times a summer so its a good gauge of mpg. Before programmer with stock intake and exhaust I avg'ed 23 mpg which is good with 31" tires. After this weekend with 91 tune and nothing different I got 26mpg. Pretty happy to say the least. Im going to havasu in October and plan to add my Volant CAI to compare mpg.

you bought this for your 5L Colorado? I went on the hypertech website and couldn't find a Colorado when selecting my vehicle.

They only make them for 2008+ models. 2004-2007 have a different ECM.
