That is a definate no to buy. Sorry, it really is too good to be true

Read through this thread on the chargerforumz. He put himself on the line and bought one to test it.

Unfortunately, there is not much out there for the 8.0 v10. However JetChip does make a chip I see. I can tell you, I had my chip removed for a while, then put it back in. I did infact feel a difference. I run a stage 2 jet chip because I have a better intake, 180* thermostat, and a better flowing exhaust.

Thankfully, if you have no modifications, jet makes a stage 1 chip which is for little or no modifications. This is my recommendation.

Check with some of the vendors on the site as they may have tuning software that I do not know about.

A glasspack will really give you a loud exhaust, and you'll see some better efficiency than stock since it flows a bit better. I won't say it's night and day performance-wise.
