Hi Boy,

I have a HyperTech and I love the setup they have. I wouldn'y buy a truck and not order one without it again. You can program more than one vechicle as long as you unload or put the original factory program stored on the programmer back on the original vechicle. Then you can move on to another vechicle. Only way on a HyperTech. If you have an EPROM burner, you might be able to copy the chip, and then place the chip you want in the programmer. I don't know this for sure, and I wouldn't want to cheat HyperTech out of their money anyway. They make to go of a product for that.

I forgot one thing. The programmers are usally made for model years. I know mine is for all Chevy/GMC 2003. I know the ECU is different for 2002. On a Tahoe I can't say.

The Hypertech Power Programmer reads and records the vin number from the car's computer. It will not allow you to reprogram another truck until you de-program the existing truck. The only way to do this is to have Hypertech reset the power programmer. I tried this with my 96 Impala SS and they would not reset the power programmer.

Superchips works the same way as the Hypertech. They become VIN locked after you use it. The only other way to use it on another vehicle is to put your first back to stock and unlock the program.

I like it very much. It has a large 5 inch tube, which I love. It's chrome, rather than black which was a high selling point to me. The first time I drove it, I could feel the difference. Obviously not a huge difference, but still made me feel good.

Here's a photo of it installed.

If you do go with AEM Brute Force, check out First-1.com. I picked it up for like $240.00 with Free Shipping. That was the cheapest I found, but that was a while back, they may be cheaper now.

I have a K&N intake and it is a very noticeable difference. I was turned away from the AEM because of the chrome tube. As you probably know metal heats up a lot quicker than plastic. So the AEM i believe wouldnt be as efficient as the K&N.
