I guess I better talk to Sean.. Hah

I had a 2011 QC, and ran the 91 octane canned tune and found it made a pretty significant difference.. After trading up to a 2013 8 speed sport QC i was on the edge of my seat waiting for the tunes to be released.

That magical day finally came.. and after almost 40 minutes of install time, I took the Ramaconda on it's maiden voyage with the 91 octane tune. I was expecting pretty good things, being the 8 speed with 3.92s... and I gotta say, it honestly felt less responsive than before the tune was installed. After putting some highway miles on er, and having the chance to put the pedal to the floor a few times, I am pretty disapointed.

After reading some of the comments in this thread, I'll be in touch with Sean for sure.. Thanks for the feedback from the guys that have installed the Hemifever tune! It gives me hope that I dont own a $600 paperweight. hah.

Klus, definitely talk to Sean! I can't stress enough how bummed I was with the canned Diablo tune. The only difference I felt was in the upper RPM ranges that I very rarely ever drive at.

Sean's tune is a completely different story. Like I said in my last post, I can't imagine how much better my truck can feel once I get his custom tune for my truck. From what I've read of other people's experiences, it is a significant improvement over his base tune.

You absolutely won't be disappointed. With the 3.92's and 8 speed, I'd expect yours to feel even snappier than mine. It's so good that I look forward to each time I get to drive it. I can't comment at all about MPG since I just put Sean's tune on yesterday and admittedly have been driving it much more aggressively than I usually do.

GET A HEMIFEVER TUNE!!!!!!!!!!

Same feelings here. The canned tune was NOTHING compared to Sean's basic tune. I still gotta send him some data logs this week for my custom tune. CANT WAIT!!

I finally had the time this afternoon to update my Trinity T1000 with the new 2013 programming. Was going to install the Diablo 93 Octane tune, (got a tank full of 93 ready and waiting)....but then the rain started so I figured I'd hold off so I don't go out there and bust my ars. Anyway, since everyone is so impressed with the Hemifever 93 tune upgrade over the tuner's 'basic' canned 93 octane tune, can I just skip the step of uploading that one, e-mail Sean and order one of his basic tunes, and just load the one he sends me right from the get-go?? That way, I'm saving time and one more time the truck's computer is reflashed...??

This is Sean. http://www.hemifevertuning.com/category_s/29.htm

If you buy the tuner from him then his custom tune is free. Or you can get the same deal from Moes.

...Sean is the most experienced tuner for the Hemi Ram...or at least one of the early tuners...
