Which tuner or chip
2012 5.7. If I was just looking to improve mileage and power, which tuner would you recommend?

you pretty much only have two options for your 2012. Diablo or Bully Dog. They are the only ones who have cracked the codes for the 2012

Do a search on the forum for those two...many many threads about it. I think diablo has had more attention and some pretty impressive gains. For a little less than $500.

I'm a big Diablo fan, both of my hemis are modded, have racing cams and spray nitrous at the track. I get a custom dyno tune for each, depending on what I'm doing. Detune to 87 octane for safe winter driving, and a balls out summer tune for 93 octane and drag racing. I like the better shifting as well. As far as better economy, you can talk to Johan at Diablo, he may be able to get you some better mpg's. I think if you can get MDS to turn on more you might do better, part is how you drive to make it happen. MDS= better mileage, but less fun.

Ive heard a lot of complaints about Bully Dog. From what I have read it seems like diablo is the way to go. You have a lot of options as far as the tune goes and Ive heard the interface is easy. I'm saving up for one myself. Im definitely going with a diablo tuner.

Diablo has more experience with the hemi's than BD does..

Ok so I put on my flame suit right before I started typing........ I'm coming back to a truck from a car and my previous make was not very mod friendly. How does Dodge stack up with warranty vs mods? Specifically chips. Does anyone know if there is a chip yet for the 13 Hemi? Sorry to thread jack but it feels apropriate here!
