stacking tuners

whats up yall. anyone ever stack a tuner and a chip with the V6? i currently have a Hypertech tuner for a little bit of extra power and fuel economy but im looking at ordering a JET Performance Chip to get a little more. not sure what is going to happen if both are sending signals to the ECU... or what??? iv looked on autoanything.com, summit racing, and quadratech and i havent seen anything saying the JET is stackable. thanks for any info

Heard the computer will eventually compensate for the chip; so gains now & cancelled out chip later. Tuner is as good as it gets it seems.

You can not stack tuners on gas engines.

I think it is theoretically possible, but not with anything they have on the market currently. I had a 24v Cummins Ram for awhile, and the way stacking works there is that one tuner controls the fuel schedule, and the other modifies the timing... But, increasing fuel without increasing the airflow would turn things bad in a hurry on a gasoline engine... hence turbocharging on a diesel engine.

So no. Unless you have a goose that lays golden eggs, and another goose that is a really good troubleshooter.

Gas engine is completely different than a diesel. You can stack diesel tuners because of the turbo.

I'll second that - I had a Jet chip on my Hemi and when burned out it fried my wiring harness and blanket my computer. It cost me $650 to have the dealer fix it. Jet chip said "sorry - out of warranty". What a POS. Spend your money on a superchips tuner or hyperchips tuner. They do SO much more than a jetchips chip.
