The Flashpaq seems to be working really well for fuel economy but I haven't tried it with my 5th wheel yet. If it works as good as the service I had from etrailer, I don't think that I'll have any problems at all. You guys were great with keeping me updated on my order. Thank you 130759


Have you tried the towing feature as of yet? Just curious how the Flashpaq did. I pull a 24 travel trailer with a 2005 Expedition and it needs some help!Thanks,Lonnie H

Very nice works great and very easy to operate. The ford F150 has a lot more throttle power and it is great for towing. I would advise anyone who needs a tune up or wants to tow to definitely.get one. Best money i've spent in a long time. 207865

Review from a similar Superchips Flashpaq in Performance Chip

First I have to say that ETRAILER has the absolute best customer service out there. When I ordered this over the phone, there was an error that doubled up everything (glitch in the system I believe). Anyway, before shipping, and charging me double for everything, they called me to confirm that was what I really wanted... good thing. As far as the Superchips is concerned. It's great. Really unlocked my truck's power. So easy, a caveman could set it up. Tells you recommendations (i.e. in performance mode, don't tow, etc.). Also, for Mac users, the Flashpaq F5 is upgradeable on your computer. Just go to the Superchips website, download the "ignition" software and you're good to go. I spoke with Superchips and they acknowledged that's an error on their website. If you're going for fuel economy, go with the "Performance" mode. I've seen easily a 3MPG overall gain in that mode. It's also the one that increases the most torque and HP. Highly recommend this product if you want something simple that will unlock your Cummins while keeping it safe... and you really can't go wrong by ordering from ETRAILER. Seriously, I have ordered tons from them and they are awesome! 380881

Review from a similar Superchips Flashpaq in Performance Chip

Unable to use. First, took 4 attempts on 2 machines to download their update software, then 8 tries to get the software to recognize unit. First update crashed, second says unit is up to date, but trying to program the truck results in an error that it seems means the database is corrupt (the only place you can't find information on this programmer is Superchips). I tried to investigate the issue via Superchips, however their "support" section is offline and returns an error message and one thing common to all the information I found after failing to be able to use it is contact takes upwards of a week, and if and when you reach someone, they just don't seem to care about helping. There is no way to reset the unit and try to download the updates again for a fresh installation, and the Superchips official forum for help is, surprise, offline. I've had better luck with customer service from 3rd World companies. 231730

  • Horsepower and Torque Gain for a 2003 Ford F-150 5.4L with the Superchips Flashpaq Tuner
  • I spoke with my contact at Superchips and he told me that for your 2003 Ford F-150 with 5.4L Triton V8 Engine you can expect an additional 20 horsepower and 28 ft-lbs of torque with the Superchips Flashpaq Performance Tuner, # SU1845. For the California Approved version of the programmer, you will want part # SU4845. If you have the 5.4L Supercharged Triton V8 engine, you may see up to an additional 24 horsepower and up to 39 ft-lbs torque with either of these programmers.

  • More Power for Towing a 6,000 Pound Trailer with a 2010 Ford F-150 5.4L
  • The Superchips Flashpaq programmer # SU1845 can provide up to 38 horsepower and 57 foot pounds of torque on your 2010 Ford F-150 5.4 liter. The exact amount for any given tune though isn't available. You would probably want to use the heavy tow tune. For towing you will want a lot of low-end torque because that is when it is needed the most. Adding a programmer is definitely going to help! There are other parts you can add to the truck to increase the power such as exhaust and cold air...

  • Programmer for a 2014 Ford F-150 5.0 Liter for Performance, Mileage, and Towing
  • For a tuner that offers tune options for performance (more power!) mileage, or towing I recommend the SuperChips Flashpaq. For your 2014 Ford F-150 with the 5.0 liter, you would use # SU1845 for all states except California or # SU4845 for the California compliant version.

We offer several tuner choices from Superchips that will fit your F-150's 5.0-liter V8 engine; please see the link provided. Some are not legal in California, please note, such as # SU1845.

He said there are 4 programs, two performance, one economy, and one towing. He said with the top performance the power gains are up to 111.5 horsepower and up to 205 foot lbs of torque. In the second performance, the gains are about 80 hp and 180 ft/lbs of torque. In the economy mode it is about 40 hp and 100 ft/lbs of torque. With the towing...

  • Availability of Programmer to Improve Gas Mileage for 2004 Navigator
  • Based on my research, the average fuel economy for your vehicle is 11 mpg / city and 16 mpg / hwy. Because your fuel economy deteriorated so quickly, we suspect your spark plugs might be getting fouled. I would recommend pulling and examining your spark plugs to ensure they are not fouled with oil. If they are it would indicate that your engine needs work. I would also recommend checking your spark plug wires for damage. We do have some programmers that would provide a very modest...

Some of the tunes actually have the octane level in their names: 87 Performance requires 87 octane 91 Performance requires 91 octane 93 Performance requires 93 octane 87 Octane allows the use of 87 octane regardless of manufacturer's recommendation Heavy Load Tow and Towing tunes use 91 octane Mileage XS requires 87 octane

  • Does Using Tow Modes in Superchips Flashpaq Tuner Increase the Towing Capacity of a Vehicle
  • there isn't really a specific capacity or anything when in the various tow modes of SuperChips Flashpaq tuner # SU1845. You are still limited to whatever the truck can tow according to its owners manual. You would also have to follow the programmer's instructions for the correct octane of fuel to use in a given mode. The tow modes make sure that you have the power in order to tow easier but they cannot increase the capacity of the truck.

  • Is there a Way to Determine Increase in Fuel Economy Using Programmer on 2015 Ford 6.7 Diesel
  • Determining how much a programmer such as # SU1845 will increase fuel economy is virtually impossible to determine because it is based on several variables including the condition of the vehicle (yours is new so no issue there) driving habits, terrain, elevation, the weather and so on. Also, some people enjoy the extra power so much that they have a hard time keeping their foot of the accelerator! As you can imagine, this practice does not help fuel efficiency.

  • Will SuperChips Programmer SU1845 Hurt Transmission of Vehicle it is Installed In
  • Any time you increase the power of a vehicle and you start really accelerating hard you end up putting more strain on the vehicle. A common place for an issue to arise is the transmission. If your transmission is in good shape and you aren't beating up too hard on your vehicle with the new power you should be just fine. Now if your transmission is on it's way out the new programmer will push the issue and cause it to go out quicker.

If it states to tow with the overdrive off then you would still do so and it would not cancel out any of the changes made by the programmer. You would also want to use one of the towing tunes preprogrammed in the unit.

The Flashpaq works well with vehicles that have additional enhancements such as cold air intake.

It will give you up to 20 horsepower and 28 ft lbs of torque plus allow you to change tire sizes. The part # SU4845 is basically the same programmer but approved for use in the state of California. It costs a bit more just for that reason.

  • Will Using Tuner Damage Motor or Transmission on 2011 Ford Truck with 6.7 Powerstroke Diesel

To help with gas mileage use the Mileage XS Save tune option.

That might not seem like much but you will be able to tell the difference. Gas motors can get small power gains like this but nothing like what diesel motors can get.

  • Will Using a Programmer Extend the Life of a Truck or Void the Warranty

  • Can Two Programmers be Used at the Same Time on a 2000 Ford F-350
  • You cannot stack programmers because they would conflict with each other and could possibly disable your 2000 Ford F-350. The Flashpaq # SU1845 fits your truck and you can use it with other upgrades such as cold air intake and aftermarket exhaust. For example with the 7.3 liter diesel you could add # AFE51-10192 which would provide more power as well and the Flashpaq can be used with this type of upgrade.
