With the winter gas blend, not too good. About 13-14 MPG on the 87 octane tune right now (mostly city). I can't wait until summer.

Congrats on your purchase. I'm a new owner as well, I just purchased my Black 2008 Ram Quadcab yesterday. Autoanything is a great site, I have purchased a few things from them before for my last vehicle. From my experience, they have fairly fast shipping and are easy to work with. They run specials all the time, I think I got free shipping last time I purchased from them. Have fun modding!

Welcome to the forum! Glad to have you here! What a change in vehicle haha, one you go truck you never go back! Well I would say put a CAI and exhaust and then chip/programme it. If you do the CAI and exhaust it will make the chip perform better

Very much so. That's the main reason I keep it tuned to the 87 octane, as opposed to the Mileage XS Saver. The power gains are excellent. It's hard for me to keep off the accelerator.

Performance mods , look into the BullyDog Gt Tuner , a cold air intake , and some exhaust . Not sure if they make headers for the 4.7 .

Gibson makes a kit for the 2004-2007 4.7L, but I haven't seen one for the 08s

I got out of a honda s2000 before this truck and I drive a Peterbilt for a living. Now with this dodge I am lost.

I though there was only one 4.7 but they show 2. The high output and the non. How do I know which one I have. I dont even know what model my truck is. Just says 1500 on the doors and 4.7 on the engine. Nothing on the tail gate like I see some others.

Thanks
Charlie
