Default programmer ?

i have an 08 with the 4.7 liter flex fuel and am wondering if under normal driving and or light towing is there really any difference in feel with the tuner or would i be better off improving air flow with a cai and catback exhaust ? any comments appreciated.

A tuner on the 2008+ 4.7L gives a tremendous power increase. On 93 octane it's nearly 70hp and 70lb ft MAX gain.

I'd go with the superchips. I've tried the superchips and the diablo(with a custom tune) and liked the superchips better.

I would highly recommend getting a tune, great investment and definitely a noticeable gain in TQ and HP.

I am looking for the same answer, it sucks cause bully dog released the tuner for the 2012 Hemi today, but it wont work for our 2012 4.7l, will have to wait for superchips to get something out, or diablo.

yeah, I have a Superchips Flashpaq 3865 on my 2008 4.7l. I live in Cali, and all i can get is 91 octane. I used the 91 performance tune and the truck feels like a hemi. I actuall draged against my buddies 2006 hemi and we were dead even. I'm on 37"tires and 4.56 gears and CAI. He is bone stock hemi.
