Default hemi tick

Hemi tick? 60k miles. Will synthetic or semi synthetic oil help?

very well could help switching to synthetic. Another member on here says it quieted his down a good bit. If you have it though, you pretty much have to live with it.

$268.

I got it mainly to turn off MDS...worth it just for that. As far as HP and MPG....eh. Definitely helps for sure. I have it on the 91-octane tune and run 92 gas. It's been like that for a long time now, and I never really did a good comparison test between stock and with tune so I can't say for certain. But it's nice to have a code-reader, changed my tire size to recalibrate my speedo. I run 35" M/Ts so the truck is a dog anyway. I don't try n go fast or hope for good MPG. with the tune/tires I get 12-14 mpg depending how much highway and city. without the tires I got around 15-17 on a good day

Definitely worth it in my opinion.

yeah mine does it every once in awhile. But not enough to bother me. Plus I've learned it's not worth the run-around to track down the issue and try and fix it. Just get some exhaust that drowns it out
