Can't offer any suggestions here, other than checking with Dodge to see what they want. Alternately, check with a local speed shop. Doesn't hurt to buy local so you have someone to assist you.

WOW, would not have expected that with 8% TM!! I know that mine (No tuner yet) is not great out of the hole on dry pavement, but if I have any moisture or sand that lets the revs come up quickly, it doesn't seem to mind removing some of the smoke form the tires. But like I said....if the traction is good to start with.....not a peep out of it.

Yeah, any sand, moisture, or even cold pavement in winter and the tires will light up. But warm, dry pavement and the tires just hook.

There needs to be more bottom-end tuning done with the Superchips tuner. Midrange and top end are definetely better but the bottom end still sucks. Also, the lag between pushing the gas pedal and the throttlebody actually opening needs more attention. I had my 2006 Chevy Trailblazer SS custom tuned and the throttle response is instantanious with the drive by wire throttlebody. You would think that you had a physical cable connected. Not with the Dodge though.

This is un-confirmed, but I have heard that the throttle response is greatly improved with the Diablo Sport tuners. When I get mine, I will be posting 'specifically' on that issue.
since I come from the world of standard transmissions, I find the lag...well....annoying, and with my personal driving style....unsafe!
