Then again if ur right it's possible I'm completely clueless and the change that has happened in my truck since installing the tuner is somehow deceiving me into making me think its faster ???

But I doubt it, more power is there for sure. Everybody is entitled to their opinion, some know more than others, some claim to know a lot and really don't.


But hey I'll bow out respectfully now as I'm sure my words have or will offend some people but hey nothing wrong with having a little faith in the product you buy especially if it makes you happy!

no need to bow out, i would like to read about your continued observations.

If you've got your tuner hooked up and don't see or feel any difference yet, just wait till it f***s up your motor and Chrysler denies your warranty... that's when you will see and feel the BIG difference hahahaha!

Default Performance Gains

Glad to see you're getting some improvement in performance! I'm only going by my experience and some articles I've seen that show up to 1-3 Hp gain. I'll try to find the Dyno results in these articles and forward the to you just for some general info.
Again, happy you're seeing an improvement, Enjoy!!

What I noticed the most was HOW the power is delivered, it's much more linear now, and the shifts are much improved. I also love being able to kill TC and MDS, it was almost worth the cost for that alone.
30 HP is a huge deal. If this tuner increased HP by 30HP for $500 bucks, that a good bang for your buck. My Intune with 91 tune did nothing for my ET's. I did feel some improved throttle response but it did not translate to an increase in any observed HP or Trq. Glad it's working for you

That does not sound fun! Right before I installed it I was at the dealer and they made some drive ability tranny updates so hopefully that's the bugs your referring to all worked out?

As far as 5900rpm I don't see the need to push my daily driver past that cuz I really don't want to ruin it!

Now I'm questioning it, I like the diff in power but its not worth screwing my truck up to me at least! Any further info on this subject would be greatly appreciated.

LOL at 1-3 HP gain? Must be an 11', 12' Ram issue

MY 10' Hemi can't do this without my tuner... (shifts at 6200 - 6400 no problemo)



click image for video


only mods at the time of that vid (over two years ago) Intake, CatBack, 180º T-Stat and a Diablo Trinity...
(reg cab 4x4 with 3.55 gearing)

It will run 14.7 and 14.8 ET's all day long on bone stock tuning/shift points on my heavy-ass 305/50R20 Terra Grapplers on 20" wheels
and YES I have a box full of track slips to back it up! (300+) , 3 years worth going on 4!

Best time at the track on street tires with a 93 tune, 94 octane fuel , shift points raised from 5600 (stock) to 6400rpm, Throttle boost maxed out... 14.414 ET
Best Time on Drag Radials (pre TC swap) .... May 13/2011 .........13.898/98mph at 2500' DA (13.4/102 corrected) same base mods (intake/exhaust/tune)
I'm sorry but NO-ONE is hitting that! on a 4G Hemi Ram without a Tune! (unless its a 2wd reg cab, 3.92's in negative DA winter run at sea level)

I will say that anyone looking for a real kick-in-the-pants difference for your dollar,
Nothing beats an Edge 2800-3000 stall torque converter... I dropped my 60' times to 1.8's instantly

I run the 91 tune with 93 gas. A definite difference is MPG and power.
