Anyone with a 2002+ Explorer, represent!
Hey, WELCOME to ExplorerX! I tend to stay away from Superchips, etc. although I do try to keep up with what they put out. Apten chips, made by Apten Performance are by far the BEST chips you can buy. The reason why is because this guy, Brian Herron, can get unbelievable horsepower/torque gains out of your Explorer/Mustang/Thunderbird, etc. really any Ford. Why he is so good is because every single chip is custom tuned to YOUR modifications. So its meant to get the MOST hp/lbs of torque out of what you have to work with. The more performance oriented mods you have the more power you'll get in return.Hi, I'm new here, just purchased my first Explorer less than a week ago, and look forward to having some fun with it. ?I used to hang out at F-150 Online (actually still do...) but traded my 1999 F-150 for the explorer. ?I had a SuperChip Flip-Chip in the F-150, but when I called about haveing the it reprogrammed I was told it wouldn't work in the 2003 Explorer. ?I have never heard of the apten chip, where can I do more research on this item. ?The only mods I had to my truck were and aftermarket Gibson Cat back exhaust and the Flip-Chip, and was very pleased with the improvements. ?I'd like to make similar improvements to my new X. ?The folks at SuperChips did mention they are currently working on a new micro tuner for the 03-04 Explorers, but it won't be available until mid 2004. ?The one available for the F-150 sounds nice, with three pre-programed settings plus the ability to set top speed limiter, shift points, shift firmness, and calibrate for changes to tire size or rear end gearing. ?Plus it also acts as a code reader. ?I'm thinking this my be my first performance mod! ?Has anyone else heard about these?
