Automobile manufacturers must compete in a marketplace where fuel consumption, horsepower and torque are big factors, but they must also comply with emissions and other regulations. To meet these demands modern cars are controlled by computers. The computer, known as an ECU (Engine Control Unit), controls all engine settings like the air/fuel mixture, ignition timing and idle speed. A quick and easy way to do this and upgrade your vehicle’s performance is with a “superchip”, also known as an aftermarket performance chip. Aftermarket performance chips are made to adjust parameters to increase engine power and torque. The effects of the superchip can be easily reversed just by plugging it into the ECU and choosing the reset option, which will cause the ECU to revert to the factory settings. Overall, upgrading your ECU settings with a superchip is a fairly simple and low cost alternative for the everyday auto enthusiast.

At first glance, these all look very generic and bulky. perhaps the speed calibrator might be worth it if it was $40 or less. Let's take a few minutes to see what is offered.

item number one @ $360 available for 08 and 09 only with no engine selection?

option two available 08 till 2013? $627
NOTE: I'd love to see the 2013 model that they tested this programmer on.

speedometer calibrator for $245 from 08 to 12?

what makes any of these viable products?

The first programmer is more than the cost of a laptop, mailorder, or maybe even dyno tune. The second one is expensive enough you might as well buy HPTuners and a license for your truck and i'm sure as hell am not spending almost 300 bucks just to change my speedometer.

Buying these programmers makes as much sense as buying a mystery resistor in a box or a throttle body spacer.

Anyone looking at these, do yourself a favor and research tunes. spend 5 minutes looking at the superchips manual and you will see it isn't specific to your colorado and is very limited in features. The trinity programmer is so well designed, it is available for the 2013 colorado which I don't believe even exists.

This thread is becoming EPIC fast.

Bottomline, if you want a "Super" tune, you contact @Supermodulation

No out of the box tuner will do what he does
