Or has this been deemed a non-issue at this point ?
Good observation.

LoneWolfNY has not seemed to update his issue since his most recent post about getting in touch with S&B Filters. Maybe he can chime in if he views this and tell us what the outcome was. I haven't heard.

Like I commented shortly after his reply 137, I had not heard of the issue he commented on until he posted it.

I don't like the current crop of canned tuners out there at present. To much growing pains..... a bit like the 13' model Rams.

I'm going to wait a little longer on Superchips who I'm pretty certain will release a tuner mid-to-late summer. I've owned several in the past without a single issue. All have met or exceeded my expectations. I tend to stay loyal and not attempt to repair something that isn't broke.

But of the current crop, all my research leads me to Hemifever's custom tune which is the route I'll probably pursue if SC drag much longer than late summer.

Hey Grubrunner since you have the insight with S&B or there is a Rep on here sometimes, when are we going to have one out for the 2500's? I have been waiting for mouths and thinking of buying something else. Really want the S&B, but can't wait forever, because I will be getting me a 2015 Ram 1500 diesel.

Does anyone know if you need the extra pipe for 99 bucks to go along with it? I am a bit confused on that one.

Are you speaking of The Scoop?
