Wow! I love this tuner! I enjoy the ability to change the tune from performance to towing in a mater of minutes . I was happy to disable the DOD (cuts off 4 cylinders on light load) and to raise the speed limiter too! very happy!

Review from a similar Flashpaq F5 in Performance Chip


This programmer makes a big difference with my 2008 Expedition (5.4 V8, 6 speed auto). Fuel saver mode gave me around 2 mpg better on the highway, Performance 91 gives it a great snarl and significantly more power. Regular 87 mode, after a day or two, had smoother shifting and less gear hunting at low loads. Feels a little more powerful too. I haven't tried towing yet.


Comments
I leave it in 87 fuel saver mode. I found out that towing mode is for 91 and higher octane, so it is worthless to me. Im not going to pay 50 cents or more per gallon for towing, I will never recover the cost. That is my only dislike about this product.

Review from a similar Flashpaq F5 in Performance Chip


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


Comments
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

So far I have only used it on the 87 octane tune setting. Definitely an overall mild improvement in performance. Does not kick out of overdrive while in cruise control mode nearly as often. Picked up at least one possibly two miles per gallon.

Review from a similar Flashpaq F5 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!

Review from a similar Flashpaq F5 in Performance Chip


Simple to use with easy menus and update process via your computer. Don't expect a dramatic power boost with gas engine. I have noticed much improved mid range throttle response, especially at higher elevations. My 2500 HD no longer has to downshift 2 gears to maintain or increase speed on 5 to 6% grades in winding turns in the 45 to 55 mph speed range. Wide open throttle passes at higher speeds seem to be a bit quicker. To soon to form any opinion on fuel mileage.

Performance gains provided by the Flashpaq F5 are dependent on many different variables, including using the correct octane fuel, and the overall condition of vehicles drivetrain.

Review from a similar Flashpaq F5 in Performance Chip


Took about 10 mins for the PCM to upload the stock tune then about another 5 minutes to program the Fuel savings tune, I could almost instantly notice a difference. I drive a pretty steep hill on my way to work and always have to downshift and lose speed near the top, not anymore I can take the hill in 5th and Speed up as well. 20 HP doesn’t seem like much but it makes a huge difference. Next text will be when I tow my RV to the coast on the heavy towing tune.

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.
