The last thing you want is a dodge.... there is a reason that they went BROKE!! so I won't say anything else on that...

But you can't go wrong with a Spartan or SCT. They will give you tire burning power with good throttle response and way better shifting!! Mileage will be minimal, there are some claiming 5 or more MPG but I only saw maybe 3; but the fun factor is more than worth it!

Stay away from the other tuners; they may be chepaer but they are causing MAJOR prblems (trannys especially)

hope that helps

I knew that was coming. First things first FATSO remove that dpf and you will have some improvement. Then get yourself a tuner

You need the tuner that will allow you to delete the DPF. You just can't delete it.

Oh well that suck Dodges you can just delete it with a cel. So automactically you have to spend a couple thousand to get a delete with a tuner?
