Default performance programmers

is anyone running performance programmers or chips on their 09 ram 5.7? And if so how are they preforming. I have seen some online for $60 that claim 4 mpg and 60 added HP, but that seems hard to believe, I am more concerned with the added mpg. Any input will be greatly appreciated, thanks

Chips are a thing of the past. Get a diablo predator and run the economy tune.

Yeah im not sure if theres anything good with "chips" my last car i bought a Cobb AccessPort. it was $600 but made a big diff.

Im still new with trucks so not sure if they make anything like that. Think what Ghost said about the Diablo, is what im talking about?

You used to drive a Subaru or what? I want to get a newer STI and stage 2 Cobb tune.
