Default Superchips tuner for a 2012!?

Hey all. I went to the Superchips site last night and put in all the info for my truck:

Dodge
Ram
2012
5.7L Hemi W/MDS
5-45RFE Tranny

Results came back with 3 different options for my truck. The "Dodge Cortex", the "Dodge Flashpaq" (Both hand held tuners) and the "VIVID LINQ" (works with a smartphone). So, I am wondering if these are really tuners like the Diablo or Bully Dog? I've heard there are no other tuners than Diablo or Bully Dog for a 2012 Ram but it say these 3 work with my truck. Anyone have any idea what these are about and/or how/if they work with a 2012 Ram? Since I can not find a single post about them and a 2012 Ram I am quite curios about these "Superchip" tuners. Let's hear what you all know about these.

Funny cause I have read no where that they have a tune for the 2011 and up, could be something new, but the tranny is a 6-Spd Automatic 65RFE Transmission the 545RFE is for the I think 09-11 5 speed. the 2012 got the 645rfe that is basically a 545 but shifts differently, it uses all the gears no just one for upshift and another for down shifts, So still think its not going to work on the 2012's. They may have cracked the encryption and finally released something, You should shoot them an email and ask.

Yep, just checked my window sticker and sure enough, 65RFE. I guess an e-mail is in order here. Thanks for get'n back to me here Asur.

UPDATE: Message Sent! Will keep you posted.

Reply from superchips:



"Unfortunately, at the moment, we do not have the tuning available for the 2011-2013 Dodge or Chrysler vehicles just yet.
We are still working to make the tuning available, but have not yet scheduled a release date.

Here is their reply:
"We do not have any tuning for the 2011 and up dodge gas vehicles at this time. We are working on it but I do not have any type of eta or release date I would check back with me in a month or so and see if we have anything at that time"

When it does [finally] become available, all the growing pains, issues and whatnot with the other tuners will be ironed out and non-existent with SC.

You'll be amazed!
