Default 5.9 performance pcm

hi all, this is my first post here and am looking for some answers to a question i think only you guys would know. i have used the search and google and everything but cant find ANY good info on the mopar performance pcm for the dodge ram 5.9L v8. i actually just got one for 100 bucks from another forum but the guy didnt know much about it. it was installed on a truck and then took it off when he sold the truck. my question is, what do i need to do to install it? does it need to be flashed or programmed to my vin or something? i can get you all the numbers on the case or whatever info you need from it. also any info on it like what it will change or suggestions on what else i could do to improve my truck. im not looking for a race truck because its a 2500 and i plow in the winter with it and use it a lot (dont do much towing with it but i do tow sometimes). just need a little extra power to get me through the day. any little things that are not expensive help me a lot. thanks for any info you guys can give me.

I don't have any experience with them, but I think Hughes makes a performance PCM for the 5.9 gassers. Lemme find a link

Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Remove the 3 bolts holding the factory PCM on, it's on the passenger side of the firewall.
Also disconnect the 3 leads attatched to it.
Then bolt up the mopar pcm and plug in the leads accordingly.

Do know you have to run 92 octane minimum with those. They don't make them anymore, that's why you can't find anymore information on them.
