One day isn't enough for me to make any real conclusions, but I will be documenting each days AVG MPG through the EVIC.

Then on Friday I'll fill up the tank and do the actual math.

How's everything else thus far..? Improved shifting, power, etc etc..? The more details the better as I'm very close to a purchase...

Be sure to reset your AVG MPG at each tank fill.

Same shifting, little more power, lots of increase in throttle response, MPG actuals still in progress

I generally reset AVG and TRIP each fill up.

Day 2 = 15.5 MPG AVG

Down .6 from yesterday, total of roughly 1.5 MPG gain.

Received mine today and can't say I am terribly pleased with it at the moment.

Installed it and found the truck hard to start and the check engine light was on. Cycled the ignition and the EVIC displayed "service electronic braking system" and "service electronic throttle control". Removed and reinstalled the hypertech harness one sensor at a time, turning on the ignition after each to check for faults. Everything was fine after the IAT and cam sensors were connected but once the MAP was connected the faults returned.

The unit is back in the box and I will contact Hypertech followed by the vendor for assistance. Will let you know how it works out.

I did not know it worked for the 13s thought it was only good up to the 12s maybe that's the deal

I haven't noticed any other 2013's mentioned so I guess I am the guinea pig on this one. The part number I bought is 705003 and the 2013 Ram is listed under the description so it should work. I live pretty close to where I bought it (Summit) so when I exchange it I will try hooking up the replacement in the parking lot.

Either way I will keep you posted.

Edit: I sent an email to Hypertech so hopefully they can shed some light on this problem.
