Default possible death flash? .....and other questions

I am new to this whole death flash thing. Afta reading about it this morn i ran outside to pop the lid on my 02 5.9l and there it was,the dreaded sticker on my pcm. After much research apparently not all dealer flashes are the death flash just 99%. I guess there are charts that will compare your flash code to the chrysler tbs death flash codes but i cant find them . The code on my sticker is 56028410 AG. Does anyone know if this is the death flash ? My second question is ,my buddy has a stock 07 ram . What mods must i do to my 5.9 in order to kick his stock hemi ass in our friendly game of "lets line em up" Thanx in advance.

as far as the death flashoes rescent dyno results I've seen tell me its more hype than anything... there's only about 4hp and 20lbs of torque less with a "deathflashed" engine than one loaded with an sct 93 tune... I was pretty shocked considering all the hype about both..
And forget about keeping up with the Hemi unless money is no object as you can go out and buy your own hemi truck for less than it will take to make an obsolete magnum perform like one.. and you will continue to save in gas money to boot...
Trust me, besides this truck I have an 84 corvette I know all about being obsolete... with only 205 hp my Toyota Camry can smoke my vette... engine technology has come a long way..
