If it works with your truck, then hell yes!! I have a 2002 Ram with the 360, and the SC really wakes that motor up a lot! I would say buy it ASAP if you have the means.

thanks everyone, i like what i am hearing, have any of you installed a different intake kit such as a k&n intake kit on your truck? i am looking at one of these too. also i am looking into changing the gears in my truck, i have 3:55's and thinking of going with at least 4:10's.

Just threw away the old 4.10 ring and pinion out of my old rear . Nothing wrong with it . Posi unit went south and ate up the bearing cap and started on the housing . Didn't feel comfortable with the weakened cap so found a used rear .

i have the "trick flow" kit from summit. it is the "off brand" that K&N makes. same exact tube and filter as the really pricey one. saved about a hundred bucks or so. I have the 3.55 gears too. I have been wanting to change to 4.10 gears but just can't afford it.

Even if all it does for you is to firm up the shifting, go for it!

I'm seriously thinking about getting a 3865 for my truck to try it out. I found a place that takes programmers in trade and I have an older Superchips 2715 MAX MicroTuner that I used on my Yukon.

We'll see what they have to say on the trade or trade + cash to get rid of the 2715 and get me that 3865.

Even if it gets me firmer shifting it will be worth it.
