Default SCT Tuners

Does anyone have any experience with these tuners on their RAM?

It doesn't seem to be as well known as Diablo or Bullydog but the shop I get most of my exhaust work done at is a SCT dealer and says their RAM tunes just came out. I'd like to get the Livewire but their website doesn't show it available for RAM so I'm not sure which tuner they would actually give me....

Ideally, I'm going to take my truck in at the end of the month and have them install my JBA shorty headers, do a custom y-pipe, and jack up the Bilsteins from 2.1 to 2.8. I was thinking of buying the tuner from them and having them tune and dyno the truck while it's in there.

Let me know if you have any opinions or experiences with the tuner?

Yeah they do look pretty popular with the Fords. I think their Hemi tuning is available now though. What aspects do you like better than the Diablo?

I spoke with Murillo Motorsports earlier today and Mike himself recommended Diablosport over SCT for Chrysler.

I don't even know who that is, but yes right Diablosport is better as of known. They have more experience in tuning Chrysler. But SCT is not a crappy tuner, they have been doing fords for a long time. So once they get up to speed I think they would be a good choice too. Because there a lot more people using SCT around the country than Diablosport.

SCT supports 3rd, and 4th Gen Rams. They just don't come with canned tunes. You have to get a custom tune, or buy the tuner software.

Yes they do come with canned tunes, and also support custom tunes. At least for 2012 trucks. I was looking at them myself.

I stand corrected. I was looking at the x3. Didn't even see the x4. Which looks like a pretty sweet tuner TBH.

I assume Diablosport gives the tuner more to work with. Some tuning software gives you more parameters to modify than others.
