    Will a hypertech save me?

    I have a 98 camaro ss with 4 53 gears. my speed o is 15 to 25 mph fast, will a hypertech power programmer save me? And can I buy a used one to fix my problem?

    I believe Hypertechs can correct for gear changes. If you buy a used one, its extremely risky. The previous person has to unload the program from their PCM back to the hypertech to restore it. A Hypertech can only be used on one vehicle. Lot of people get screwed on this.

    It would honestly be in your best interest to get ahold of a tuner that could correct the speedo for you and cost you less than a Hypertech.

    Frost can do a mail order tune if it is not your DD.

    And everyone who has one says he is the man.

    There are probably a lot of shops in the Bay Area that can do that for you, i live in Stockton, theres none here but i know of a couple places in sac. and i think maybe Tracy/Lathrop that can do it....... oh, i have also heard/read nothing but great things about FROST, you might wanna consider that route, probably cheaper.

    Sadly now demodded :(

    Are you sure you car doesn't have 4.56 gears? Or maybe 4.30's? I've never heard of a 4.53 gear. Do you know the manufacturer?

    I ask cuz you've got to know the final drive ratio and tire diameter to get your speedometer to read correctly.

    Frost did a great job on my car, I would go through him before going the hypercrap route. Been there done that.

    DONT buy a hypertech...they are risky and the tunes suck. my car had a hypertech tune and it was garbage

    if you want to buy something, buy HP tuners.

    but like everyone said, take it to a shop...or mail it to someone
