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


I bought this after installing 4.56 ring and pinion gears in the front a rear axles in my 02 gmc sierra 1500. Due to differences in where wheel speed data is collected between the front and rear axles you'll get an abs warning light if you make any changes in drivetrain bearing. This unit has the ability to adjust the parameters for tire size and gear ratio in order for the ECU to perform the necessary calculations. The result is that the ECU can then realize that both front and rear wheel are in fact rotating at the same speed, which turns of the abs light. I also used a GPS speedometer and adjusted tire size so that the indicated speed matches perfectly a calibrated gps speed perfectly. Its actually more accurate now then it ever was. So I can confirm that this unit will correct both issues you may have. I havnt used any of the "canned" tunes so no comment on performance, towing or mpg gains. Just adjusted the parameters on the stock tune and been running it like that for a year with no issues


Comments
1 year later still havnt loaded any other tunes in it, have used the code reader a few times and it works just fine. Basic sure but if the lights on itll tell you why. Speedo still correct and no abs light so it was kinda an expensive fix for just that. Im sure the other tunes are just fine never had a problem with them on my other trucks just never tried them on this one... so yea thumbs up?

Review from a similar Flashpaq F5 in Performance Chip


Had an EDGE tuner for my '08 F250 that I liked better. This one is kind of slow to update the computer (2 files, with lots of ignition off/on cycles). I tried the Performance tune and went for a quick ride. Yep, it worked. Loaded the Towing program, we'll see how that works out.


Comments
Only the preinstalled updates are available, so unfortunately there is no way to do custom updates with this. There may be updates available on Superchips website that you can download onto this device using the included USB. Hopefully in the future, there will be a new quicker install update available.

Really helped unlocking power at lower RPM with heavy trailer load. Easy to use.

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.

Not a noticeable gain in any of the modes. I would just buy a cold air intake instead and save your money on this basic tuner.

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

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


The tunes that come with it are great! However the other functions aren't all that special. The code reader is basic at best. It wont pull any advanced codes, the $[XX] code reader from wal mart does the same thing. Also when I changed the tire size from the stock 27" to the new 33" it didn't load it properly and caused the brake and ABS warning lights to lose their minds and flash constantly. Overall its overpriced for what you get.

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.

Review from a similar Flashpaq F5 in Performance Chip


I ordered a Superchips Flashpaq for my 02 Dodge Ram 4.7. ETrailer was one of very few websites that was clear in its discription on wheather or not it would work on my truck. The customer service is great and the price was good.

Review from a similar Flashpaq F5 in Performance Chip


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


waist of money for gas towing vehicles it will not help u tow.


Comments
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.

Product arrived on time. Works as advertised. Easy plug and play type interface. Like being able to change my trucks program as I see fit. Would recommend to anyone that likes tweaking cars and trucks.

Review from a similar Flashpaq F5 in Performance Chip


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.

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.

Review from a similar Flashpaq F5 in Performance Chip

  • Recommended Tuner For A 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 W/ 5.3L Engine
    You will be able to use 87 octane with all of our performance tuners that are compatible with your 2017 Chevrolet Silverado, but not with all of the tunes they offer. If you are towing a light trailer, you can go with Chevrolet's recommended fuel. A tune that requires more power, i.e. heavy towing mode, will need 91 octane. The Superchips Flashpaq F5 Performance Tuner - GM - Gas, part # SU2847, is an excellent option. Please keep in mind you will need to return your vehicle to the factory...

  • Reprogramming A Superchips Flashpaq F5 Performance Tuner
    I believe this problem stems from you programming your Superchips Flashpaq F5 Performance Tuner - GM - Gas, part # SU2847, with the magnetic shocks on your vehicle. When you removed them your vehicle the tuner limits your speed because it believes that something is wrong with your suspension. You will have to contact Superchips with your Flashpaq model and serial number and they will take it from there. I believe they will have to reprogram it to stock and that should get rid of the speed...

  • Do I Need the Have My Vehicle's ECU Unlocked to Run the Flashpaq F5 on a 2019 Silverado 3500 6.0L?
    Unlocking the ecu on your 2019 Chevy Silverado 3500 (6.0L V8) to work with the Flashpaq F5 # SU2847 depends on the body style of your truck. If you have the legacy body, it is plug and play on your computer. If it is the newer body, you will have to send in the vehicle's computer in to get it unlocked by Superchips in order for it to be compatible with the F5.

  • Can You Eliminate or Raise the Max Speed Limiter on the Flashpaq F5 Tuner?
    I confirmed with my tech at Superchips that you can completely disable the speed limiter as well as raise the limiter when using the Flashpaq F5 # SU2847 on your 2018 GMC Sierra 1500 (5.3L engine). As far as how far you can increase the max speed limiter, the max speed can be limited up to 200mph.

  • Compatible Performance Tuner for 2018 Chevy Silverado with 5.3L V8 and Shift Points
    For your 2018 Silverado with 5.3L V8, the Superchips Flashpaq F5 Performance Tuner - GM - Gas # SU2847 is the correct tuner for your. You will be able to adjust your shift points safely, but you will want to make sure to not adjust them too high to avoid possible damage to your vehicle. I did a little research and the shifting point most people use for performance is around 5,600 rpm for first gear and then 2nd thru 6th around 5,400 rpm.

  • Performance Tuner For 2017 GMC Sierra Denali 6.2L With 8-Speed Transmission
    The Superchips # SU2847 Performance Tuner will give you increased performance in both horsepower and torque and you can delete the Speed Limiter and Rev Limiter, plus remove AFM without an extra gauge added. Of course you gain access to many other settings as well. While this will allow you to adjust the speed limiter I can't really commend going over the factory setting. This limit is there to ensure safe operation of not only the tires but also the driveshaft and other components on...

  • Recommended Performance Tuner for a 2017 GMC Sierra 6.2L After ECM Replacement
    Since you had your ECM replaced your current tuner thinks you have a new vehicle. You can try to contact Superchips and maybe they can reprogram it. They design the Tuners to only work on one vehicle so you will most likely have to replace it. You will want the Superchips Flashpaq F5 Performance Tuner - GM - Gas item # SU2847.
