Hello,
My name is Ronnie. I just bought a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 5.9. Bought it used off of craigslist for $5k. It has a Pro-Comp lift, Edelbrock headers and an Airaid intake. I'm probably going to have quite a few questions for you all so I hope you can help! Thanks!

Looking good and rep for getting the pic up right away. Ask away, there's lots of knowledge on here who can help you out with the '01s and the 5.9L. So, any plans for more mods?

I'm probably going to get a chip/programmer. I haven't ever done anything w/ the computer of a car so i'm not sure what exactly the difference is between a chip and getting a programmer or if they are the same thing lol. I hear the Superchips are pretty good from browsing around the forum. I'll have to look into that.

Not sure what else I can do to it right now except the chip so thats my next step.

Quick question on the exhaust on it. I noticed that the exhaust is cut right after the catalytic converter... My guess is the previous owner did it to make it sound better without paying big bucks. How does that affect the performance of the truck? Bad, good or neither? Thanks.

Actually now that I think about it... It was a repo. The guy i bought it off of bought it at auction. Maybe the guy had a catback on it and took it off before it was repossessed... Anyways... still wondering if it affects the performance...
