#65 of 84 Saturn Aura XR Chip/Module
Nov 28, 2007 (10:16 pm)
I want to know if there is a way to override the Speed limiter and adjust the shift delays in the 6-speed in the XR?
Not much this car need but these two things would make it a lot better.
I have looked at Jet, Super chip and a few others but none do Saturn Aura's.

its just way too new.
what engine is in there again? is it an ecotec? if so, they MAY develop a chip. If not, then I wouldn't hold my breath.

The engine is the 3.6 L Twin cam 24V, V6 from the Cadillac CTS.
Sure would be nice if someone would let us reprogram the top speed and transmission

OH. The aura. geesh. for some reason, i was thinking of the new compact ... uh, the astra? (this is why companies shouldn't name their products so similarly)
WELL, I would think they'd come up with one for the 3.6 since it is being used in more and more vehicles. Did you try calling any companies? You might find one who would do yours for free just to get a prototype on the road.

what is WOT and SOP? I am a little confused on exactly what you are talkin about.
I am wonderin if a chip upgrade will help enough with towing to be worth the money? My truck(04 2500 HD 4x4) could use the help towing 70 with hills and high wind, but 55 or a flat 70mph zone with no wind i'm fine.
Also does hypertech program shift firmness? I really know nothing about re-programing. can i go from performance to stock settings for fuel economy or should performance mode be better for milage? please help! thanks.

There is nothing that will improve your mileage except changing your driving habits.
Even if, by some grace of the car gods, you eeked out slightly better mileage with something like a better breathing intake (very unlikely, regardless of what the manufacturers of these products would have you believe), it would probably take 10s of thousands of miles of driving to recoup the cost of the add-on in gas savings.

I have been researching some Hydrogen-producing bolt on modifications that are supposed to yield 35% better milage for about $600. I am not convinced they work yet but will report back when/if I test one out.

I have a ''99 F250, 7.3 liter Powerstroke. I bought a superchips power programmer, K&N air filter and cut the muffler off. The truck had 30,000 miles on it. I have ran it on the performace tow setting for 99,000. It increased my mileage 3-5 mpg and a very noticeable power increase

Was the Superchips you got the flashpaq model or one of the others? 3-5mpg increase is good but may have been due to the k&n air filter or the muffler mod you did. Jury's still out for me on whether to Superchips my mustang....
