Default 2013 ram Tuning?

Hey guys, new to the forum, new to trucks, had a challenger and a jeep for the longest time. Figured it was time to get into a truck.
I went to a local performance/accessory shop here in Edmonton Alberta today an the guy there told me only 2 tuners are available for the '13 5.7l rams, Hypertech Interceptor and Edge Performances' Juice Attitude.
Anyone out there have one of the 2 installed? or have any helpful info they could pass on to me with regards to buying one.
I have a Diablo Sport DCX Intune I-1000 or whatever it's called. No tuning available for 13 rams yet.
Also any other helpful mod ideas (peoples experience or opinion with the different CAI's out there for example---i saw one thread where buddy couldn't get his CAI to fit with the hood closed)

Yes, what Asur said ^^^ The Bully Dog is a way better option.

Will have to look into this, I was unaware that Edge had one for the 13's yet.

BullyDog just released the 2013 tuner last week.

x2 I'd hold out for Diablo to release the tuning on the 13's if you want the best for le$$

I saw the BD Hemi+ at Capital in Edmonton at noon today for $650
My Diablosport Trinity, that allows Custom tuning, was $100 less

I've had Superchips, Bully Dog GT and a Diablosport Trinity on my 2010 5.7L Hemi Ram
the only one I still own is the Diablo Trinity. Same goes for several friends that tried them all too.

Chris at CCMR in Spruce Grove is a Diablo Dealer
and certified CMR tuner with an on-site dyno.

He does most of the high end Mopar Hemi cars/jeeps/trucks in the area

http://www.ccmrmobiledyno.com/



more dyno day pic's here: http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=65939&page=17

Get a Catch Can from him ASAP too!!! #1 1st day mod for any 4G Hemi
just talk to the guy for 20 minutes and you will be amazed how well he know's Hemi's

You can get the Bully Dog Hemi + for 400$ and apparently there can tunes are better than Diablo, so if your not going for specify setups and personalized tunes you might like the Bully Dog Hemi +, and they are presently shipping with 2013 compatible tunes, + they will work on the 4.7 engine also. But if you are going to use it and personalize your own tunes or buy tunes from venders that produce specialized tunes like Hemi fever and white lightning and I think a few others, then wait for the Diablo, it can accommodate many more features.

Yes, both Asur and myself are running the Bully Dog GT for Hemi Plus.

The website claims around 30+ HP and 35+ foot pounds on the performance tune I believe. So far I've only run the regular tune so I haven't noticed those kind of numbers. But there definitely is added power and torque. Plus the shift points are 10 times better! That's the biggest difference. It keeps the truck in the power longer and when it should be rather than changing to the next gear and having to low of an RPM and then having to downshift again.

As far as fuel economy goes I was seeing 17.5-18.5 MPG tank averages with the stock wheels and tires. (Also had a CAI and exhaust). My highway mileage was up around 22 or 23 MPG so I definitely can't complain about that. So far with 35" Toyo MT's I'm averaging around 15.5-16.1 MPG and my highway mileage is around 17-18 MPG

Again, exactly what Asur said ^^^
