Purchased Jet Power Module

I went ahead & got the Jet Power Module from Auto Anything $227.00 with free shipping.The install was very easy took about 10 min. total time.I am impressed with it so far,I noticed a heck of alot more low end get up & go (torque).Faster acceleration throughout the power band just on regular fuel.They recommend premium octane for best results but I havent tried it with that yet.The car is definantly more peppy,and seems more lively now.

A tune voids warranty. Can't you just unplug this when you go to dealership and not have anything to worry about?

No issues with cai,I have the SLP.No check engine lights.A tune would be better only if you wanted to delete your top speed limiter.

I got the stage 1 for stock no mods other than cai.I think stage 2 requires free flow exhaust system & cooler thermostat

Not saying they don't improve the feel, but pretty sure they do little more than increase the percentage of throttle at a given time and also help decrease the hesitation in the "drive by wire" systems.

I don't believe any real power is gained, it just applies the throttle better.

Please correct if wrong.

They do more than this. The spark timing curve is changed, as well as the fuel tables. You do get a few extra ponies from this add-on, but only if it's the only add-on. When used in combination with exhaust systems, CAI, etc, the gain is negligible.

JET says this is good for 13 hp and 11 with an intake.

I've yet to see anything jet makes actually make any power. I'd be willing to bet you money this is nothing compared to a trifecta tune. Buy a real tune from me and if this jet chip really is better, I'll refund the tune plus pay for the jet chip.

Speaking of tunes. Does anyone have a tune that can be flashed back to stock without updating the counter so that the dealership won't void the warranty when you take it in?

I would love a tune for my auto V6LS but I don't want to void my rather extensive extended warranty.

Trifecta has all that. you can reflash your car to stock and also have transparence mode which fools the dealer into not seeing anything being tuned.
+ the v6's dont carry a 'flashcounter' like the v8's do, from what ive read extensively in this extremely helpful forum

Have to agree w/ BNR....never seen any Jet product do as advertised, but we are willing to try one. May be they have a product worth the $$.

It's my understanding that a dealer may not be able to tell, but if the ECM is requested by GM and sent to GM, then the engineers there can tell. I believe that occurs sometimes during powertrain warranty claims. There has been discussion of this within a number of other threads, though I couldn't tell you which ones. I have also heard that the TCM does have a flash counter, so those with the automatic should consider this. My feeling is if you are very concerned about warranty, then don't tune. If you are not, then tune away; but don't think you'll get it by GM should there be a future powertrain claim. If you break the rules then live with the consequences...

OP - sorry for contributing to the thread jack...

I installed a JET module on a Ford F-150 once that a custumer brought in, and it seemed to make quite a difference, the customer left with the truck that afternoon and was back with it running rough and a check engine light the very next day. Removed the JET module and everything returned to normal. Maybe it was just a bad module or something, but the fact it only last less than a day, I have always stayed away from them.

I dont think it would be possible to compare the 2 with any fair outcomes.

Well I don't think anybody is trying to prove that jet would outperform a tube, because it is the cheap and easy alternative to a tune. I think the selling point is, the ease of removal so you do not void your full warranty the way you would with a tune.
