2006 4.7L chip
 
I've got a ram 1500 TRX4 4.7 L and I'm looking into getting a chip to boost my fuel economy. I don't need anything fancy and I also plan on adding an air intake. Does anyone have any suggestions on good quality chips and what gas mileage increase might be expected?

You might gain a little bit, but you are still pushing around a 5000-5300 lb truck with a small displacement V-8. A Superchips would be the best thing for you, your choices range from a 3865, 3950 (Cortex) or the new bluetooth android job (don't remember what it's called). These have settings from 87 octane economy-ish to 91 high performance. 3865's can usually be had on the forums fairly inexpensive. It also doubles as a code reader/resetter/

^what he said. Don't expect more than ~1mpg increase.

Im looking for a little more information on the chips for my 05 4.7 looking for a little more power.

what they all stated above your best bet is a superchips, the have the basic flash paq, the cortex, and the vivid linq, all of which pretty much achieve the exact same thing, just more features on some than the others. here is some info on them (the vivid linq is not loaded in yet it will be this afternoon), and if you decide to purchase one all tuners are 17% off right now with promo code "TUNERFEVER" for the link to the tuners just click on my signature

Coretex

"Cortex could only come from Superchips; the best selling brand in the business. It is the programmer your mother warned you about. It’s wicked and mean, and if you’re not ready for seat-cover-sucking power, then turn tail and run. Simply stated, Cortex from Superchips is the meanest street-legal programmer you can buy with an industry first 2 Year powertrain warranty. Cortex pumps up the performance by as much as 318 Pounds Feet of torque and 154 Horsepower at the rear wheels! In addition to brain-numbing power increases, Cortex lets you adjust transmission shifts, move the engine rev limiter and change the speedometer calibration. You can also view a ton of stats like how fast your vehicle is smoking down the 1/4 Mile after you’ve loaded the top-dog calibration.

Flashpaq, the most bang for Your Buck. Flashpaq gives you dyno-proven power for either 89 or 91-octane, so can choose according to your gas-card balance and need for speed. Diesel burners can choose from max performance, towing or economy programs. Tire smoking comes standard for all makes and models. It is friendly with almost every cold air intake package, low restriction exhaust system and even some aftermarket throttle bodies.

I found a flashpack at a garage sale, for a ford. A widow was selling it..paid $20! I ended buying it for my dad's truck and he loves it for towing and getting better gas mileage. I am saving up for my own. Keep hoping I find another awesome deal.
I've had my '03 4.7 for just over a year now and decided its time to do some mods.

Those "HP Chips" are worthless. Buy a Superchip Flashpaq or Cortech.

I have a superchips Flashpaq 3865 and it did wonders for my 4.7l I towed a 5000lb trailer and got an average of 12mpg driving the speed limit. This was through some long grades too. Im actually selling my rig though, cause im going to be hauling a 5er. So the superchips is up for grabs. ;)
