Default 2005 Dodge Ram Hemi Custom Tune?

I have a stock 2005 Ram 1500 Hemi right now, and I was wondering if there were any custom tunes I could get... I called a performance shop and they said you can't get a custom tune for a 2005 Hemi, is this true? If this is true, what tuner would be the best for me, Bully Dog? I've heard some good things about Super Chips aswell. What are your thoughts? Looking for awesome performance and better fuel economy!
Thanks for the help. I'm also in Hamilton, Ontario.

I have an 05 1500 as well and im running a custom tune tune.. they have no idea what they are talking about. To run a custom tune you will need a tuner capible for doing so, IE diablo trinity or Intune. then you will need to contact someone such as Hemi fever, white lighting etc to have them write you a custom tune from data logs you send them or find a dyno tuning shop close by and have them tune it. IMO if you are planning on doing nothing but a tuner then the expense of a custom tune isnt worth it, you would be just as happy with a superchips and there canned tunes paired with there trans tuning, the transtuning on an 05 is incredible and will make on crazy difference

Okay thanks a lot! How much money would I be looking at spending for Superchips and the trans tuning? Does this tuner make a difference on MPG too?

When i had the superchips in my 05 when and if i could keep my foot out of it, big if there, i was seeing 1-2 mpg difference.. that being said you may get the tuner on and not see any MPG difference because every vehicle is different.. and for the Flaspaq and transtune it will be right in the neighborhood of 300, autoanything is a vendor here and might be able to get you the Z discount shoot them a message and see what they can do

No, the trans tune you will have to buy after you get the tuner, you will get the tuner and pair it to your truck once it is paired with the truck you will have to hook it back up to the computer and when you go back into the superchips up date software there will be a purchase menu where you buy it, if i remember correctly it is $40 and worth every penny.. if you end up doing that i have some of my old shift schedules that i used on my 05 if you would want them

Oh okay thanks, that's awesome. I will let you know! So to get this all installed, I just order the Superchips Flaspaq and then bring it to a shop and they will install it all for me?

You can do that if you want.. but its quite easy to do your self, just order it have them ship it to you and when it gets there they provide pretty much a step by step instruction sheet and the tuner gives you instructions as you do it, its pretty easy to do by your self
