Default Discovered the diff between dealership and Performance shop

With my truck I've been dealing with my ETC ( electronic throttle control) today I went to all 3 major dodge dealerships here in Arizona no one in parts or even service managers could answer my questions. I contacted a performance shop and they answered everything I asked and even filled me in with more knowledge.
With my diy ram air, throttle body spacer and superchips is to much for my computer to recognize. They informed me this is where I need to get either a diablo trinity what he highly recommended or another programmer that will allow me to change my limits I guess you could say that my superchips just cannot do. I'm glad I finally well hopfully figured my issue out. Hope this might help some one fighting the same issue now to save up for a new programmer after I just bought this one..

before you go spending unnecessary money
take off the paper weight called a THROTTLE BODY SPACER
they are only good for carbureted engines
they don't do a thing for throttle bodies

the spacer only comes in handy IF you race & need a spot to machine the ports for the Nitrous
