Probably will recieve it mon/tues, weather cooperating i will take her out and post a review.
Was the $324 price on auto anything? I seen one for $354.

Congratulations, I've had it for about 3wks.,and I'm in no way disappointed! I certainly hope your reaction is the same. I went on and put 93oct. in before it arrived,whereas previously I used 89, and ran that a few days before it arrived. 1 recommendation is ,you may need a short step ladder to get to the MAP sensor. It's waay back there and our trucks are pretty high. Looking forward to your reviews

How about a review from you as well?

After a few weeks of use, what kind of MPG increase or decrease have you seen?

I have RCSB and mpg really hasn't changed, that very well could be attributed to my driving style. In which I certainly like the increased throttle response. It's basically like driving a different truck, the powerband is definately stronger! It's basically plug&play,whereas on their website they are showing 33hp gain,and it is very obvious running 93oct. I really have not tried 89 simply because I enjoy the additional power. The torque as well is obvious from a standing start. Looking @ the dyno chart you can see where the stock tune actually drop, with the "Hypertech Interceptor",you can see, the powerband builds, THAT is what is noticible during acceleration! I personally feel this is one of the best kept secrets, for a very simple mod with such great gains. ( a little over 10bucks per hp, and a lifetime limited warranty) One thing I do suggest to anyone, please don't knock it till you try it! The only other mods I have are, Mopar cai,& mufflex 18" magnaflow, and I will not mod any further.

Their dyno sheet showed the stock ram only made 282hp. That can't be right. A 108 hp loss off of the advertised power of 390. I know there is loss through the driveline in any vehicle but 108hp is ludacris.

22% sounds average for a rear wheel, 2 wheel drive, automatic.
