Over the last 6 months we here at SmokinVette.com have been using Hypertech’s Hyperpac Performance automotive computer on both of our project Vettes. Our silver Vette is a 4 speed automatic and has a Magnusun Super charger with 100% methanol setup, while our Black Vette is a manual 6 speed with a fully forged 403 stroker set up. With the major differences between the two cars, it enabled us to see how the Hypertech Hyperpac performed on both platforms.
The features on the Hyperpac were phenomenal, beginning with its extremely easy set up process to its user friendly touch screen. One is able to perform a 50 state legal power tune in which it allows you to change the rev limiter, shift points, fan switch, speedometer/odometer for all different tire sizes and much more. We were really amazed at how well this worked on both of the Vettes especially when it came to the shift points on the Silver A4. Changing the shift points proved to be very easy and the ability to fine tune the transmission woke this automatic Corvette right up!

We then went on to testing the “Drag strip” feature, which was one of our favorites! This feature is very much like the real deal, from the Christmas tree, reaction time, 60 ft, 330, 1/8th, 1000ft, ¼ and ET’s it gives you all the information that you would get at a real drag strip. Seeing that we are not professional drag racers, it was refreshing that the Hyperpac walked us through the whole procedure with comfort and ease. What was amazing was the detailed description it produced after each run. It was broken down to the point that even the saltiest drag racer would be highly impressed. Also, you are able to record each pass so that you can compare future runs.

Next we went on to testing the Rest of the Hyperpac functions, starting with the gauges. This function we found to be highly useful for everyday driving. This allows the user the ability to view just about all of the engines functions from ignition knock to water temperature, from air/fuel ratios to intake air temperatures, anything that the driver needs to know can be at a fingers touch away. As with the drag strip function, you can record each event or just the time you are driving and save it for future reference or review.

Lastly we tested the Diagnostic and the Dynamometer functions. The Diagnostics function allowed you to read and clear your trouble codes while at the same time explaining the codes to a point that even the most novice auto enthusiast could understand. We ran a handful of tests by unplugging plug wires, 02 sensors and various other sensors to see how well the Hyperpac picked up the problems. The Hyperpac found the problems very quickly and described the codes very clearly and precisely. We then went on to testing the Dynamometer function, which was another of our favorites. This allowed you to calculate the horse power and torque at either the engine or at the wheels. This was surprisingly accurate and very close to what we had already seen at professional dyno shops. It was almost like having a miniature dyno in your car with all the graphs that everyone is used to seeing when getting their cars dynoed at professional shops. Once again, as with the other functions, all this data can be saved so that you have the ability to compare different tests in different settings i.e. atmospheric conditions and if other mods are put on. This can be very handy in determining whether or not your new mods are making gains.

In closing, we were extremely happy with what the Hypertech Hyperpac had brought to the table. We feel that it has a lot to offer, not only to the begining auto enthusiast but also to the long time auto enthusiast. Seeing that it’s extremely user friendly on virtually all levels, we feel it’s a great tool for anyone who would like to understand their automobile better all while in the comfort of their own driveway. With all that said, we here at SmokinVette.com give the Hypertech Hyperpac an emphatic two smokin thumbs up!:thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Smokin how accurate are the 1/4 mile and 0 to 60 times with this thing? Have you compared this to other units out there? I've been looking at this one and the Gtech which seems like a smaller unit and perhaps less features, which also has a much lower price tag. Maybe a good example you get what you pay for? Thanks for the help.

The HyperPAC is going to be much more accurate than a Gtech pro as the HyperPAC takes into account roll out and wheel spin. Also if tracks in your area are anything like the ones around here you will find that some tracks are not really a 1/4 mile. If this is the case you can calibrate your HyperPAC to match your local track.

Friend at dealership has one on his C5 Corvette, he likes the tool because of the 1/4 mile feature, but screen color is so :ack2: . I was thinking about getting one and called the company up and no other screens available, they did say you can choice either blue or white screen? :doh:
