Default Re: 3.0s with Superchips Flashpaq Users

After further research.... I have to vote SCT is the best handheld tuner available doing all these other tuners do+ other important things like fuel injector size, egr delete, headers,back two O2 delete, etc...

Doesn't the sct tuner require you to run higher octane though?

Depends what tune you have made, their custom to your truck. So if you want higher octane then you can have it, or of you want to stick to 87 and get more power then they make the tune around that

Its by far the best tuner available... allowing you to do further mods and have your ecu tuned for those decisions:

Ranger SF3 3015 includes the SF3 3015 and 3 MPT Custom Tunes created specifically for your Ranger by MorePowerMike, our Expert SCT Certified Tuner. You name the tunes you want: Select the octane: Race, 98, 95, 93, 91, 87, then select the tune type. Performance or Economy. Tunes will get rid of check engine lights, remove speed limiters, raise rev limiters, disabled traction control, etc. Why buy from MPT? *3 Free MPT Custom Tunes on top of the SCT provided pre-loaded tunes * Expert SCT Certified Custom Tuner * Customer Service Driven * Fast Responses to Emails and Questions * Speedy Order Processing and Free Shipping with Insurance. Superior product +3 Free Expert Custom Tunes = BEST DEAL on Amazon!!! What is a Flash Programmer and why do I need one? A Flash Programmer (AKA Flash Tuner) is a device that will immediately increase the horse power, torque and fuel economy for your vehicle. You choose the type of tune based on the type of performance you desire. Tunes can be switched at any time in a matter of minutes. Plus, it's 100% reversible. Here's what the SF3 and MPT can do for your Ranger: * Huge Power Gains in Torque and Horse Power * Increased Fuel Economy * EGR Function Removal and No Check Engine Light After Blocking Off the EGR * Faster 0-60 Acceleration * Better Throttle Response * Improved and Firmer Shifting * Smoother Idle * Removed Speed Limiters * Raised Rev Limiters * Stores an exact copy of the vehicle's stock file. (Needed for Warranty Repairs) * Plus all of the standard SCT SF3 3015 features. Regular Price: SF3=$479, MPT Custom Tunes=$125. This SuperCombo saves you $225! (Free Custom Tunes not applicable for Aftermarket Supercharged/Turbo Vehicles).

Cheapest I can find to buy is $379.00

Edit/update: found the cheapest place yet for a SCT tuner-part number 3015-includes all listed above for $341.00 at this site:

Yeah but how much power are we actually gaining? Im looking into getting a tuner soon and im a bit skeptical on weather its worth it or not. I drive about 10 straight uphill miles on the way to work and more power would be great. But im also rolling with a 3.0 with 3.73s on 33x12.5 tires. I mean obviously i need to re gear but my money tree isnt growing that fast.

Default Re: 3.0s with Superchips Flashpaq Users

For a stock 3.0 tuned alone is about +9hp,+13torque... from what I have read on all the advertisements. I have further plans for the exhaust, intake, and injectors, so the SCT is better for me, and the HP/torque gains will be greater. But still, at the price $341.00 and all its ability--its the best buy IMO.

Yeah but what I want to see is what 350 bucks and 9 hp actually gets you. I mean sure a handful of other upgrades combined with this can be good but just a tuner alone im not really sure if its even worth the money. Not saying nobody should buy them, this is just why i havent bought one yet.

Hey guys I started this thread for 3.0s with the Superchips Flashpaq to discuss stuff, lol.
Lets not turn it into a SCT thread then.
I have a flashpaq and I want to discuss and share info about it on here.

Yes sir, no more SCT here. Sorry.
Superchips Flashpaq
Speaking of it, when tuned for its best performance option, what have you noticed different in your Ranger's operating conditions? How much different is it than the towing option?

haha no big deal dude, I have the flashpaq and its bugging to hear about this SCT now and maybe I should have got that instead, lol.

As for the performance on the flashpaq, i can really feel the difference in the shifting and acceleration.
As for the tow mode, i haven't used it because im confused, when u select it it says u need to be running like 91-92 octance.
So i don't know if i should try it, most of the time i run either 87 or 89.

Wow, that is confusing to me as well... I would think the performance tune would require the high octane? I thought you also get a full refund if returned within 30 days? Or is that void the second you use the tuner?

No I didn't buy mine retail, I got it off a guy on Craigslist that lives in the town down the road from me. He bought it for his crown Vic car, but he wrecked the car. The tuner came with the box and everything. I paid 175 for it. Got a great deal.
