Tuner/ Programmer Suggestions?

Hey everyone. I have a 2006 Jeep Commander Limited with the 5.7 Hemi. Planning on buying a programmer/tuner in the near future and was wondering which would be the one to buy? Im looking to remove the speed governor, tune the rev limiter to a slightly higher rpm, also tune for 93 octane fuel since that is all I run in it, and also correct the speedo for the 2 inch lift I have on it with 265/70/17 Cooper A/T tires I have on it. Also I really want to put the MSD ignition coils on it and wonder if anyone has used them and if they really improved performance or not.

Another question I have is if there is a way to lobe tune to get that sweet sound when sitting at idle.

Already have K&N CIA installed and dual Flowmaster 40 series exhaust.

The flashpaq will do everything you just mentioned. It has a 91 octane performance tun, not 93 octane but that won't make a difference. I'm currently running the 91 tune and some gas stations here have 91 some have 93. Plus you can disable TPMS if you'd like, mess with the transmission shift points as well as several other things

Awesome thank you very much for your response. Which flashpaq model number is it? And are you using it on the 5.7l Hemi? And do you know anything about the MSD Ignition coils? Are they worth the money?

I have the 4.7 liter. My friend has the same one for his 06 Hemi XK and loves it. It's the same part number for both engines

It looks like the Flashpaq 3875 is no longer made.
From the website they are saying to use the 3872.
Is this the one that everyone is using now?

What did you end up buying and how did it go? I have the same XK as you and was looking at the latest Flashpaq 3874, but it says "JK only" for "Corrects speedometer for tire upgrades" which if true is not what I want.

I just spoke with Superchips and they confirmed that Flashpaq 3874 corrects the speedometer and shift points on the XK. The description on their website is misleading.

Btw this new model 3874 allows you to turn off the TPMS. I remember reading previous versions only allowed you to change the PSI threshold but not turn off TPMS.

All you had to do was read my previous post.

I told you which one to get - I even gave you the link to order one.

I just double-checked my order status and my superchips F5 programmer is actually due to arrive tomorrow.
