Default hemifever sct tuner 9550 x2

just saw on facebook that hemifever is officially out of stock of the 96+ sct tuners(9550 x2). as it has been discontinued.

so those of you that want a tuner, that dont already have one, are going to have to wait at least 3 months until the new version comes out(9550 x3).

if the mods feel this isnt tech related, please move it! i feel as though it is tech related, correct me if im wrong...

here is the facebook post...

SCT is officially OUT OF INVENTORY for the 9550 X2. This device is now discontinued. They are actively working on putting the '96 to '06 Dodge/Chrysler/Jeep support on the X3 which is about 3 months out.

Well, on the Hemifever site it says that it's still in stock. But Facebook is a lot quicker to update.

I'm glad to hear that they're not dropping us entirely and just upgrading hardware.

i think they should go with the diablo in-tune.. thing is smaller than an iphone, and is touch screen. easy as hell to use, and you can record logs.. so there would be no need for a wideband!

Also looks like the X3 will be roughly $100-$150 more than the X2.. Gonna be crazy expensive to tune these trucks once he's out and we're forced to buy X3....

Question:
I am in the middle of freshening up my 5.9. Odessa 2.02s, HS 1.7 and OBX shorties. Everything else stock, cam, pistons ect... Am I going to need a tune, or will I get by with the stock tune? Bob

Good thing I bought mine back on Christmas. He even had a discount going on so I got it for around 260.

I still need to get my plenum fixed though..

Put it all back together, drive it, and see what happens. The only thing that may prompt having to do a custom tune would be the bigger valves in the heads...... so, it's a crap shoot.

Bigger valves will only increase flow through head (an improvement). I think stock PCM will work, but a tune would help (removes death flash...) You will like what it will do for you.

So would the 9550 still be beneficial, if I have CAI, Shorty headers, Highflow cat, and Magnaflow muffler? (No deathflash) I read a few people with even stock trucks have seen improvement.

Also, plenum fix coming next weekend as well, doesnt appear blown, but preventive maintenance. Hughes kit coming.

Yes. And how do you know you don't have death flash? I suspect you do - on a 99.

Bummer. I've been meaning to get one for 3-4 years for my TJ. Now that I'm building my Wagoneer, I'll have to buy 2, and at $400 a piece that'll hurt...

I've looked in all the usual places, the PCM, Radiator mounts...etc, i've looked hard all over that motor for the sticker. Not that it couldn't of came off some where.

I'll more than likely get a tuner.

Not true.
I've got a 98 that was used to tow cattle trailers, so it's been through a bazillion transmissions and likely a plenum or two. And I don't have the deathflash since A) I can actually chirp the tires if I want to and B) I don't have ping like it would with a deathflash.

Can you make your tires make noises right now?

WTF? Got another brochure since you were 5? I said "I suspect." You can't really say that it is "NOT TRUE" that I suspect something.

And "chirping tires" is not definitive proof of anything.

Stickers do fall off. I had no sticker, but I had the death flash. I "suspect" that more have it than don't, with the exception of those that have had it remove (such as with a tune).

Don't be so quick to discount what someone else says, especially if you don't read what it is they are actually saying.

Your age is getting the best of you. Slow done and take the time to think and allow for the possibility that some of the rest of us may actually know what we are talking about. "Patience, grasshopper...."
