Default Son of a.....

Here I am, a new Ram owner...visions of horsepower making goodies and teenagers in Mustangs left sitting still at intersections are fully abound in my head. Then today comes around, the day I must take a trip to the local Mississippi Department of Revenue office. They're just tags, right? Can't be more than a couple hundred bucks, right? WRONG. Those jack wagons took me for $520!!!!!!! AND THE ROADS AREN'T EVEN IN GOOD SHAPE HERE!!!!

Anyway. Sorry for the rant. I do have a legitimate, albeit newb, question. After the run of the mill intake mods, I want to look in to one of those fancy Diablo tuners. I'm assuming these little ole devices HAVE to stay plugged in to keep the tune. Correct?

Nope! Just plug it in follow the directions to install the tune and then Ta Da! All done. you can remove it and not have to worry about it. The tune stays on the computer of the truck so you are good to go.

By the way I love the name you've got. Led Zeppelin rocks!

Just be glad that you don't have a California Ram
$520 is peanuts

An Illinois Ram would cost you $101. In fact all cars cost $101 a year in Illinois. The ONLY good thing about this state.
