Default Which programmer and WHY??

Looking to get a programmer for my 2011 Hemi Ram Express. I see alot of mention of the Diablosport and a couple others but I am looking to find out why people get a particular programmer. Cost is important, but not the end-all-be-all (most seem to be $350-$400, so it's negligible in within this range). I researched and have the Hypertech on my 2006 2500 Cummins because it has (had?) the highest hp and torque improvement in tow mode. I also ended up getting the Superchips on my old 03 for basically the same reason. Looking for suggestions and more importantly why. Thanks.

Needed custom tuning which SC does not provide and DSP does not have tranny/shift options for my early 04.
So i loaded SC3815 91 tune w/ adjusted tire size/shift/tranny options then stacked SCT to load my custom tune.

Well there are no programmers currently for the 2011s. BUT if you plan on modding your vehicle I would suggest the predator for the custom tuning options. If you will be leaving it stock then the superchips will work just fine!

Definately going for the mods! After spending about 3 hours researching last night (the CAI thread was great!), looks like I'll go with the AFE Stage 2, 18" magnaflow with custom Y pipe and true 2 1/2" tailpipes (maybe I can talk the local shop into building a true dual with a Dynomax Ultra Flow X?) and after seeing MADDOGs dyno sheet, the DSP is the way to go.

You won't be disappointed! Make sure and post clips of the exhaust when you do. It sounds like a nice setup. The true duals might be tricky though. There isn't a lot of room on the driver's side for a pipe to run.

Sounds like an excellent plan.

Glad I could help.
