I have a Hypertech programmer on my truck and setting it to the "Premium Fuel" level without running higher octane fuel results in the infamous "engine ping"... So I had the perfect test for the FFC right out of the box without having to calculate mpg's over a period of time to see if it truly makes any difference.... As soon as the FFC arrived I Installed it and with no hesitation bumped the Hypertech up to "Premium Fuel" ,eventhough 87 octane was in the tank. I hit the throttle and noticed increase in power right off, because of the higher setting on my Hypertech, and to my surprise no "engine ping". So there ya go, it does something, because running the same fuel without the FFC and with the programmer on "Premium Fuel" always resulted in that nasty little ping when you really put the tennis shoe to it. Installation: I thought was a piece of cake, but I have been around this stuff my whole life so maybe not as easy for others. Probably took me about 30 to 45 min. to install. I just put the FFC on so no real calculations on mpg gains and what not, but just being able to run the programmer on the higher setting is obviously making a difference.
