Default 2012 Ram 1500 3.7L V6 Programmers

Hello All,

As you could probably imagine, I am having a hell of a time trying to find a tuner/programmer for my poor V6.

I am completely open to suggestions on absolutely anything as this will be my first tuning of a vehicle in my lifetime. Any information you can give, brands to stay away from, stories, you name it.

But please, please, tell me there is a programmer out there for the 2012 3.7L V6....

Thanks,
Andrew

You don't have a 3.7. You have a pentastar 3.6.

Oh wow, I sit corrected. Thought it was gone by then. Ok, unfortunately not a whole lot of support for the 3.7. I would contact some of the custom tuners, as far as I know there isn't a canned tuner available for your year/engine combo.

No problem!

And yes, after my most recent research, if I want a tuner/programmer, a custom tuning company is I think going to be my best bet.

What I think I am going to do though however, is go with the Stage 1 Jet Chip that plugs right into the computer under the hood. I've come across more great reviews than semi-par ones; so for the time being, I think I'm going to go this route.

Thanks,
Andrew

I wouldn't bother, it may make a difference initially, but the PCM tends to learn around it, so you'd have to clear out the ram (memory) every so often.
