cardone ecu vs mopar ecu

so i had to replace my ecu because i bought a superchip (fail) for my jeep and it wasn't reading my vin. i returned the superchip but haven't returned the ecu yet. what i'm trying to figure out is if this cardone ecu from auto zone is the same thing as the mopar ecu everyone talks to highly of and if it's providing the extra 9hp the mopar ecu is supposed to. also, i'm not able to find the ecu on mopar's website, so idk if anyone even makes them anymore.

I'm thinking the Mopar ECU you're referring to is actually flashed by Kolak. Shoot him an email on Monday.

I say shoot him an email on Monday because he doesn't work on weekends, and emails from the weekend go unanswered.

if you want a performance tune everyone raves about the sct tuner if you are going to continue to do engine mods.

The a1cardone is a run of the mill remanufactured PCM. I had to return one for warranty, but it was hassle free.

awesome, thanks, i'll e-mail him tomorrow.

i'm leaning against programmers mostly just cause i don't want to have to worry about changing the settings or having the programmer with me if i want to tow something; plus i think the other mods you can make in place of a programmer will also improve gas mileage even though they'll probably cost more than just getting a programmer. so i'd rather have improved gas mileage and performance even though it'll cost a little more to buy rather than one or the other.
