I'm running 93 tune now as well. I had been running 87 and have noticed a huge difference in throttle response by bumping to the 93. It's still not as peppy as my wife's 4.7 Seqouyah, but it's a lot more responsive than it was. Just for the record, I have intake and exhaust as well.

The 4.7L is not a hemi, but neither is the 5.7L "hemi". It's advertising. The 4.7L and 5.7L are actually nearly identical in terms of combustion chamber shape, multiple spark plug placement, and valve positioning/runner orientation. The differences are mainly displacement and how the valve actuation works(over head cam on the 4.7L and standard cam location on the 5.7L "hemi").

HEMI, is short or hemisphere.
Which refers to the shape of the combustion chamber. Heads an pistons are sphered. Correct me if I'm wrong.
I thought this would be easy to explain over typing but ig not lol

Dont see any reason why you should wait. In relation to the Superchip tuner its not really going to matter. I havent noticed ANY difference after intalling my intake, which i put on AFTER the tune.
