I like the Hypertech it was a little tricky to install the program but once I got it figured out....its well worth it...def noticed a difference.

I bought HyperPAC hoping to achieve some performance gains and for the various diagnostics programs it offers. Installation is simple and straightforward, uploading performance tunes takes less than 5 minutes. Performance gains are consistent with the dyno charts Hypetech has on their website - modest but noticeable. I tow a trailer and acceleration from standstill and throttle response are better. My benchmark is a steep grade on I-25 before Santa Fe. With the stock tune the rig tops at 50mph on 2nd; after installing the premium fuel tune I was able to take it at 60mph. With this tune engine seems to develop more hp after 4000rpm than with the stock tune. I also like the engine monitor program which allows me to check on transmission temp. I also used the dyno program but you need to weight your truck for accurate results. Regarding fuel economy, there seems to be a modest improvement (14.2 city vs. 13.9 with the stock tune on winter gas-ethanol mix). In sum, I find this product to be useful and fun to use but do not expect miracles.

I was very pleased with the E-CON. I installed it on my wife's 2011 Expedition. I wasn't concerned about the 40 extra horses, but bought it to improve my mileage. I checked the mileage on several trips without it and then with it. By the vehicles mileage indicator, at 70 mph on cruise, I got a 2 mph increase, from 20 to 22mpg. What surprise me was at 75, the mileage went from 18 to 21.5mpg. If you put the pencil to it, the E-CON will pay for itself within 10,000 highway miles.
