A lot of JL owners get gun shy about tuning their Jeep when they hear 'PCM Unlock' but it's not something to be scared of. Swapping the factory PCM for an unlocked unit is simple and proven. Afraid about taking your Jeep back to the dealer with an unlocked PCM? Don't be, our fleet of JL's see regular maintenance at the the dealer without issue and our 'unlock' procedure should make no effect on dealer work, including dealer re-flashes and updates to the PCM. Maybe this video will help ease some of your concerns about tuning your 3.6L JL Wrangler

I have the Flashpaq on my unlocked ECM from superchips for over a year now and been to the dealer multiple times, never had issues even when they do software updates or warranty work. Good stuff Superchips.

Love my Superchips Pulsar except for the fact it keeps returning to stock? Can't figure that one out.

I would get a pulse on how my dealer feels about mods first. I have seen some dealers refuse to do work on jeeps with a Mopar lift. I would like to see a comparison between this and the Livernois tune.

Oh, absolutely. Every situation is going to be different, and every dealer will have different policies. We're just trying to share more info on the PCM unlock process in general. In 99% of the cases, the dealer would never know the PCM has been unlocked.

Im looking for a solution that allows full throttle plate opening when the pedal is floored, but doesnt overly boost it. I dont want 50% throttle at 10% pedal; but do want throttle restriction removed.

any products that do that?

What kind of upgraded performance are you experiencing?

Definitely feels more powerful with 93 map and it gets to sit in 8th gear on highway drives but I mostly run 87 now and don’t really get on it.

Yes, any device that alters the actual tune can do that. The throttle issue you describe is caused by torque management which can be turned down (or off which I wouldn't do) in the tune. I drove a SuperChips tuned 2.0T on 35s with 20" or 22" (I don't remember) and that thing was way peppier than mine, also a 2.0T. The drivability and general feel all around was amazing. Very responsive.

Does the Pulse get rid of the rev hang ?? That many manual jeep drivers complain about?
