Here are some real world results of a Predator install on my 2007 Ram MegaCab with the HEMI.

Ram Mods

Check out the dyno sheets and the narrative. I have the Predator on two HEMI powered vehicles. I have gotten real gains out of the canned 91 octane tune on my truck, a similar gain with that tune on my 300 SRT8 and when I did the CMR tune to the car, OMFG!!!!!

So I say YES!!!

What does it cost to get a CMR tune done? I would love to do this but don't know anyone in my area that does them.

It was $400 for mine...about 8 pulls on the dyno, 2.5 hours of tuning...

You can get tunes by email. The tuner will need you to log some items while you drive the truck under several different operating conditions. I'd contact Johan at DiabloSPort as he's one of the guys that does this.

Bob @ SVS.com is another good source of tunes by email.

I have a 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 5.7 Hemi and there is a definite gain in power, but not necessarily mpg. It may get a mpg less than it did but well worth the boost in power. This is my 5th truck to use a programmer and there is no doubt Diablo is the best and that you get the most bang for the buck with a programmer. Do it!!!
