Hypertech speed calibrator problems



Anyone with a hypertech speed calibrator see this problem with the speedometer jumping every so often while driving a constant speed?

That would suck if it's true. I had a chance to return it to the place I bought it, but decided to keep it. Hypertech said they would do what it takes to get it to work. I guess I'll see what happens.

I just installed mine -- I'm definitely NOT having the same issues that you have. It seems to be spot on currently without any needle jumping. I've verified my speed via the OBDII port. I need to throw my GPS in there and see what it looks like.

Check your connections on the PCB and on the cluster. Maybe try reflashing the little black box.

Hypertech

Yes it was, I tried two units but both had poor results so I finally just got a refund. Maybe due to my vehicle they say? 6spd

For those of you with larger tires who have installed the hypertech -- did it help bring down your rpms at highway speeds at all?

a speedo calibrator is not going to affect the rpm's or anything w/ the actual engine. all it does is force the computer into spitting out a different reading to the speedo. if u want to bring down rpm's w/ larger tires, ur going to have to regear
