Installed it today and went for a spin. Noticeably quicker throttle response, seems as if it may be better shifting too. I have a full tank of regular gas to burn off, then will fill up with premium and see if it seems better.

I don't have enough post to pm, but it was instantaneous. I did run a tank of 93 prior to install. Also, I do have a Mopar cai,and mufflex18", which that does help it breathe. The biggest gain I feel is in lowend, basically stop&go. Even going to 93 from 89 prior to install I did notice a slight difference, whereas it enhanced across the board performance, after I installed it.

So far legman, its a huge difference in responsiveness, top end and midrange hard to tell. But like i said i have a tank of regular in now. Will def be adding 93 as soon as i run thru this tank. No check engine lights on, so thats a good sign.

Whoa,that's heavy!,no pun intended,mine's Reg Cab Short Base 2wd. And as you probably know,nothing kills hp quicker than weight. I hope you'll really enjoy it, especially not having to call tech assistance numerous times and emailing back & forth!

How are the results thus far? Still burning through the 87 octane?

I only put one mile on it since install, and took it off cuz i have to take it to dealer for console light warranty work. I honestly only drive it when its not snowing, raining or no salt on the road. When i get back tonight ill put it back on and maybe get some octane booster. But from what i could tell in the mile i drove is throttle is alot more responsive, and seems to have more low end power.

Good to hear, thanks for keeping us informed. I kinda felt like the lone ranger, hoping someone would confirm the same results.
