Looks like the same programmer for both years, on the Hypertech site. Shouldn't need to change computers. Part # for both years was 52000 for the Max Energy, and 53000 for the Econ. Which did you ger? Sounds like you got a steal.

I tried it and it told me it could not read my truck. I called Hypertech and was told that i would have to up grade the tuner to read a 98.

That's true for Superchips, too. Only good for 1 truck at a time. BTW-What did Hypertech want to upgrade? Although I find it odd that their website listed the exact same programmer for both years.

Talking need power

They did not say, they just told me it would take 200 dollars to get it so it would read my truck. Im now thinking of a G Force chip, do you have anything good or bad, about this mod????

the model number would be the same for those model trucks it just has a different program loaded for each year. basically if you could be able to flash a new setup to teh programmer it would work teh same. i have heard about some that have been done successful plus other that can be used on multiple trucks
