Question Hypertech Power Programmer III

Does anyone have any experience with Hypertech Power Programmer III for a 4.0 I-6. They claim 13 horse and 21 ft\lbs along with improved gas mileage ... Or have other progammers or chips?

The things that have turned me away from chips are that you are supposed to run premium or you get a nasty knock knock knock

I have one for my Chevy, There was no noticeable increase in mpg or power with 87 or 93 octane settings. But I bought it mostly to re-program the truck for different size tires and get rid of the top speed limiter. I didn't get any xtra power or mpg from my over-priced K&n (drop in) filter either. I did get 1-2 mpg better and more power from my Flowmaster cat-back exhuast. Next step for me is a cold air induction kit, supposedly gets you the most bang for the buck. Hope this helps, but 4.0L's could act totally different then my 6.0L in regards to the programer.

Anything that advertises more power and more fuel economy is most likely false advertising. I'm sorry, but you just can't get the both of both worlds. Some mods will increase gas mileage a little bit. I'm sure it will give you more power, but you probably aren't going to get better gas mileage along with it.
