Default engine pinging

Help, I have an 01 dodge ram 1500 with accel plugs wires cap and rotors. Ialso have a superchips 3815 programmer. My problem is after no problems with this set up I'm now getting pinging from my engine during heavy acceleration. Does anyone have an idea what this could be? Should I put the programmer back to stock before it gets worse (which is something I don't want to do). Where should I start to find out whats causing this pinging to happen. I've tried adding more gas thinking it was bad gas and I also tried octane booster thinking it might be a gas issue. Where or what else could anyone suggest In try. Yes I have been only using 91 octane

Just throwing it out there......
I am NOT familiar with that programmer, or that year of Ram, so I have more questions than answers.
Is it possible for that programmer to turn off the knock sensor(s).
If your using a performance program of some type, does the program recommend a certain gas octane?
Are you able to switch back and forth from performance to stock programs.
Does your programmer also have a scanner function, and if so, is it throwing any codes.

You came for answers, and got hit with questions !

sorry for the late response. I put the truck in the shop was told that the ecu is bad and that the pinging noise i was hearing was an exhaust leak.

ECU was bad???? Maybe because the tune was loaded or did you go back to stock before they scanned it?

An exhaust leak makes sense. Sorry for your troubles.
