Has anyone with a first gen 4.7 had any trouble getting their Superchips Flashpaq to connect with the truck's PCU? I cannot get mine to connect. I get an error message "unable to connect" .

Bcun10.... What do you think?

I am going to buy the SC to help with towing my camper. Day to day it has enough sac for what I do, but when I have 6,000 lbs behind me I wish I had more.

Yes. I've been using the Superchips 3815 since mid-2009 in my truck. Ran the 87 tune for about a year, then went to the 91 tune and haven't looked back. Currently using the towing tune, but run the 91 performance tune most of the time. I didn't vote as the Superchips is the only tuner I've used.

[edit]That said, it's been a great gizmo. Another 20hp under the right foot is nice. The truck was more responsive with the 87 tune, but with the 91 it's more fun. The SC makes the tranny work better as well as the engine, as it cuts down on how much torque management the PCM uses. I'm using the towing tune (91 octane also) right now because I'm told it's a little better for city driving.

Haven't had any SC to truck connection troubles.

If you can find a set of High Output (HO) cams, those are a good choice. Hard to find now as MOPAR stopped production. I've heard the 08+ 4.7L cams are a good option now, but I've not tried that. A third option is getting some of the OEM cams reground to match the HO or 206 profile...

I just got the Banks for my 06 4.7 C.A.I. 3 inch pipe cut at bed and it shaved a second and a half off my 0-60. It advertises that my truck should gain anywhere for 25--30 hp/ftlbs. For the 08 it advertised 50--60hp/ftlbs. I got mine brand new from autoanything and it was only 340$. It is easy to use, 50 state legal, and increased my mileage by about 4mpg in the first quarter tank on sport 87. Hands down best by far

Been looking into the Diablo i1000... Reading a lot of mixed reviews. Some have very bad experiences. Others have great experiences. You guys have any experience with the 4.7 and an i1000?

A couple of us have/had them on the later 4th Gen 4.7's,2013's to be exact.

On your truck,i think Superchips has a better rep for canned tunes then Diablo.

Thanks! I am probably going to take it to get dyno tuned. Superchips allow this to be tuned on a dyno?
