Default Which tuner is the best?!

Ok guys need some help. Got in the diablosport intune i1000 today and it was the wrong one. While I should be getting a refund I am now tuner-less. I have done some looking and am thinking of getting the bullydog gt for Hemi plus. I can find them for only about $75 more than I spent on the diablosport tuner and the gains are almost double. Please let me know what you think or of any other tuners that might help me out!!

I looked at those and the gains are the exact same as the i1000-DCX. That's why I purchased it but was sent the wrong one. Once I did some more research I found that the bully dog has the best gain all round. And the research I did on the diablosport line up the more issues I saw. Just not too sure about them anymore....

Have the same questions. Like to buy a tuner, just not sure which one to get. So many variables.

However, you can get a hemifever tune done on the Diablo and have better gains. I just got the T-1000 installed on my truck yesterday and absolutely love it so far!

If you need custom tuning or might need custom tuning down the road either the intune-dcx or the trinity t1000 from diablo sport is the best choice. If you do not need custom tuning or need any fancy gauges to look at while driving I would get the SuperChips 3842 (if you live in California the part number is 3841). If you do need or want the gauges then I would get the Bully Dog 40430.

If you need pricing on any of these items shoot us an email to sales@bullysperformance.com we have the lowest prices around on all of them, just remember to put in the email you are a member of the Z and you will get our best discounts.

Thanks

We'll the diablo is on its way back for a refund. Sent the wrong one so it wouldn't work and the guy I ordered from did t have any more dcx's. So I kinda took a plunge and bought the bully dog off eBay. If it's right then I'll post up my opinion on it. I have used bully's on Chevys and was never to crazy but rams are a whole different deal. Lots of my buddies swear by bully dog. I guess I'll know soon enough.

We'll I got the bully dog in today and got it installed. Took me a while to find the right fuse to get it to turn off with the key but got it in the end. I put on the regular tune and adjusted some shift points and the difference was noticeable. Mostly throttle response, but the mileage gains and power was there too. Once I run my gas down and can fill up with some 91 octane I will do the performance tune. So far I'm very happy. I got a great deal on the tuner @ $350 delivered and the install was easy. Had to call tech to get it to do the latest update but that was quick and easy too. Customer service was awesome. Only took around 2 hours from start to finish (that's to update, install the tune and wire into the fuse box). As far as ease of use I would absolutely recommend this to anyone. As long as you can plug and push buttons then you can do this. Even hiding the cables was easy. Although I am going to go ahead and get the pillar mount. Just to clean it up. Overall: one very pleased customer.

I have the hemi plus for my ram. I have the 4.7 not the hemi, and it is a great little tuner! My buddy has an all stock 2011 with a hemi, I have the bullydog, cold air, and Magnaflow exhaust, I'm also running 35's and we took off from the line, he won the 0-60, we did a rolling start at 25 mph and I actually smoked him to 100 mph. Throw in on top of that you can tune your rev limits and speed limiters and all that fun stuff, I would highly recommend it to anyone. Very happy with the gains.
