Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions of what I can tune on my '05 Hemi, the only thing I have installed right now is a AEM Brute Force CAI... I installed the 93 octane tune, but think I might kick it back to the 87 and see if I notice any difference. So far, I haven't noticed a whole lot... no MPG increase or HP.. but I am not driving like a crazya5s either. Just looking for some better throttle response and mpg on overall driving. Anyone out there have suggestions that owns one...

If there is a HP gain, you will see the added MPG increase as you wont need to compress the pedal to get the same output.

I cannot even get this thing to "get tune from tool" its says failed after the tool runs 100%... then pops up on the pc as failed? tried several times and still no go. This is ridiculous! I have been on hold from tech support for 20 minutes now! Also got hung up on the first time... BS

Im going to have to say.. this tool is crap.. not only is their tech support a bunch of jumbo dicks! But they sell it with a serial cable hook up.. when that was so 90's! and then blame my issues on the cable! Why produce a product with less than superior connectivity when its meant to be MORE SUPERIOR than the competition? Wow.. I didn't think using this thing was going to be a PITA! Im to the point where I think Id rather drive over the POS with the truck than sell it to some poor soul to get my money back!

with the tuner itself, you can tune wot fuel and spark... but it's important to datalog (with wideband) so you can see how the truck runs in open loop... do you have a custom tune on the tool that your downloading onto your pc? generally, when a cmr tuner does a tune for you the custom tune itself sits on the tool. You can then download that tune from the tool to your pc. In general, you don't download any canned tunes.
