Just picked up my 2012 Pro-4x. Quite a step up from the inline six Jeep I traded. I've done some lurking prior to buying the truck and was thinking about a Hypertech tuner (correct me if I'm wrong, but Superchips doesn't support '11-'12 models). Does the Hypertech remove the WOT restriction? Does it firm up shifting at all? Also looking at either a JBA or Gibson exhaust, possibly with B pipes if they really make a difference, and an intake of some sort. So does all this sound like I'm on the right track? Should I mod in some certain order since I won't be able to afford everything at once with my new big payment on my new big truck?
I just installed my BDGT today and got to say its worth it. The screen is smaller than you'd think but all the extra gizmos it lets you do is great. The features are
you can set the gov all the way to 180mph you'll never see it haha
you can retard 8 degrees or advance 4
change throtle response which running on extreme is loads of fun
increase or decrease your idle
run 0-60 1/4 ect... tests
theres more but like i said I just got it today
the only thing I wish was for shift firmness and adjustments as far as I know no programer even Uprev will change the transmission firmness or shift points
If so I would have bought it. I think you must change your valve body for that if i'm wrong someone here please point in the right direction.
So the BDGT advances the timing, but the Hypertech does not? Like most (I assume), I want the best of both worlds when it comes to power vs MPG. That said, it's not a Prius and I knew that when I bought it. My last car was a 4.0 I6 Grand Cherokee with a lift and 32" tires, I averaged 12-12.5 mpg average (per overhead console) so I'm pretty satisfied with the T's stock gas mileage so far. I really don't plan on doing headers, so I think I'll pass on Uprev. Thanks for the input guys.
ETA: Is the 2* advance a deal breaker? Does it make a huge difference?
IMO: 2 degree advance kicks it in the butt when you punch it at highway speeds, however, I found that my gas mileage went down when I had it installed. Of course by down it was less than 1 mpg for me and it could have been because I loved the kick in the pants when I punched it. It was definitely an advantage when passing. The BDGT is a nice little unit, but I mounted a Nexus 7 tablet and ODBII bluetooth adapter today that does everything the BDGT screen does plus a lot more display wise.
