Hey diesel fans - I just got my first diesel truck. I had headers and a hypertech chip in my old gasser that worked well for me. I'm thinking about going with hypertech for the 3.0 L ecodiesel I have now so I can get the speedometer corrected after the lift and tires as well as add some power. Has anyone had experience with the hypertech max energy chip?

Thanks in advance...

They don't appear to offer anything that would improve performance, only a speedometer calibration, which I believe some dealers will do.

If you want power, you are not going to get it with any add on chip, you need a reprogrammed ECU like the GDE.

Regardless if they are available I wouldn't purchase one. At least from my experience on a first generation 6.7 ctd it always through codes and hypertech customer service wasn't very helpful. With a hypertech you get what you pay for. My suggestion is buy a GDE as not only are they a forum sponsor, they are one of the few companies who goes above and beyond, and they always answer questions even after hours from other forum members responses. Lastly, they have a great product.

Precious poster is correct. There aren't any obd flash tuners for the ecm. A edge insight can also correct the speedometer.
From what I've read, the Insight doesn't actually correct the speedometer, it displays the corrected speed. Also if the OP has a 2016 it may not work correctly.

The insight does correct speedo in the dash, but like many things this is not working on the 2016s yet.
