A programmer in a Hemi isn't going to get you 3-5 MPGs.

You have a choice between the SuperChips, Diablo, Bullydog........maybe Hypertech (can't remember if they do one).

I have owned a Diablo and now a Superchips, and I am headed back to Diablo. I like the power! I don't care about mileage, I drive 3 miles to work.......

...if your keeping your mods simple (or none)...go with the superchips..they seem to have the most reliable tuner right now with lotsa options for it...

If keeping it simple SC is the way to go, they have TCM control nailed down. Diablo has had issues on some trucks with the transmissions, if custom tuning is needed in the future Diablo or SCT would be the way. Personally I am going with SCT when I am ready to install my cam.

Unless you are brand loyal - I would look at the Bully Dog GT Gas - Electronic Gauges, Performance, Driving Coach...all in 1. Top 10 SEMA Engineered products - #1 in the Tuner Category....

As long as you guys have fixed the problems with it locking up the ECM and frying them. I haven't had the pleasure of experiencing this but a buddy of mine has.

Unfortunately, every 'tuner' company has fried an ECM - is it always the tuners fault?... some of the time sure... many times its the ECM from the factory. I am not here to bash our competitors or anything of the sort. Everyone puts out a quality product and has their own niche' in the market as well as loyal dedicated customers.

I do know what nobody as of now has anything close to what the GT Gas can do...
