Default Superchips on mine?

I have an 03 SLT with the 4.7 and it's a manual. I was researching Superchips today and was confused. Will it work on mine? Some of the x's in the application part of their website turned me off on it. My questions for the masses are will it work on my specific vehicle? Will it work with a CAI? Which one should I buy? Thanks.

yes, it will work on yours. having the manual tranny means you can use the less expensive flashpaq (no need for advanced auto tranny tuning)
a cold air intake will work with it - my dad uses the now defunct true flow xdi intake and i use an airaid intake tube paired up with a stock airbox with the bottom opened up.


also look at the fastman throttle body and a good cat-back exhaust for some great gains.

the suprechips really woke my truck up. it isn't exactly an instant gain as the computer learns all the new settings/parameters, etc.

the overhead console mpg gauge is nothing more than a glorified vacuum gauge. real mpg's can be figured by filling the truck completely, driving then filling up completely again. divide the miles by the gallons you used and you will have an accurate measurement.

If im not mistaken a programmer will help you less w/ a manual tranny but would still be worth it. My favorite thing about my superchips is the crisper shifting and better shift points.
