Angry no hypertech programmer any time soon

here is the response I got from the Hypertech tech support line. Maybe we should all email this guy "jim" from Hypertech and let him know that "anytime soon" is not an appropriate response.

"Stan

Nothing available yet and doubtful we will anytime soon. I'll enter a request to show interest and you'll also be notified when available. Thanks

Jim"

check engine lights are not fun

the guy that has the problem with his computer and the lack of any resolution, has me a little worried about just how good vector really is. I'd like to wait a while and see if these guys really understand how important the little things are.

Well, I will be easy on you The problem was not an "issue" or a "problem" with the tune. If you order the CORE you will have to have a crank relearn done which can be done by the dealer. If you send them YOURS you will not have an SES light. I have had mine for a lil over 2000 miles with NO problem. The pay attention to the little things. Take if from me and I am sure others will agree, their product is top notch. I had my crank relearn done and it took 5 mins and was not expensive at all. There is a resolution and it is being taken care of. There was a misscommunication and that resulted in bad info.

Smile thanks

thanks
for taking it easy on me...I think I understand what the issue was, and is...if I were to use Vector I would definitely want a new reprogrammed core so that I could keep my stock one, just in case. I have a great relationship with my Chevy dealer having bought 25 cars in 19 years. I could probably get the relearn done for free, but then again, they do like money. I am still wondering if the gas was the issue, and also since I live in the northeast would I be better off getting the lower tune due to the quality of the gas in our area. I only buy premium, but then I would bet that TONY did too.

Thats an Idea. I live in Delaware, and have not had an issue except when I used Wawa gas. Not sure if you know who they are as I dont know where you are located. Now I run citgo and Sunoco with no issues what so ever. I may purchase a stock ECM/TCM at somepoint to revert it back to stock. If you do live close to DE I would be willing to take you for a spin so you can see the difference this tune makes.

No codes or anything just some pinging on hard acceleration... didn't want to push it.

There is another handheld programmer in the works other than Hypertech. I'll let you all know as I have more information. I've emphasized the market for one and they agree. Now they just need to get me the beta tester so we can get to work!
