Default Any suggestions setting parameters with DS Intune DCX

Anybody running DS Intune DCX got any suggestions on parameters that I should change and what to put try them at. Never had a tuner before and would like to learn more of what can be done with them squeeze more out of this Hemi. I'm running the canned 93 tune, disabled MDS of course and increased throttle boost to 15%, but other than that I'm not sure what to try. Thinking of adjusting the part throttle shift and WOT shift points but don't want to mess anything up. Also should I do anything with the Fan adjustments, seems to be running hotter now. I do notice a big difference with the tune and am happy with it, just want to learn more and tweek it some more. Thanks

Do you have the 6 speed or 8 speed?

There is not really much to mess with from our level without having CMR tuning software. I would suggest spending a bit of money on a custom tune from HemiFever or Jay Greene (I have JG tune and highly recommend). Its WELL worth it and you can get adjustments for your mods later on.

If you are happy with a canned DS tune, you will be thrilled with a custom tune.

+1 on a custom tune. Have a professional do it, upload a custom tune and enjoy.

I have the 6 speed. I know Hemifever has a great reputation and also heard good things of JG tunes. Guess I'll wait awhile till I can convince the wife I need to put a couple hundred more into my new truck.

You can do some basic shift point adjustment and play with it but it is a lot of trial and error. Ive heard of some guys raising the rev limiter to 6200 and shift point to 6k as a start. Some have gone higher than that but I would not personally.

Yeah I'll probably play with it a little and from what I've read, it is a lot of trial & error to reach ones own personal preferences. Thanks for the response.

I believe Sean (HF tune) is charging $125 for custom tune. I would recommend not changing too many parameters until you go through someone like him first. It's well worth 125!
