Default Tuner recommendations please

My dad had a Bully Dog performance tuner in his 2004 Rumblebee and I liked the results that it made. More power, quicker shifting and faster acceleration. That was 10 years ago so I'm wondering if Bully Dog still puts out a quality product or are there other companies that are better. I'm looking for suggestions and options for my 2010 Ram Hemi.

It depends on how extensive you plan to mod. As far as I know, Diablo is the only tuner that lets you adjust timing and fuel trims. If you ever plan to do ported heads, cam upgrade, forced induction, you 'll need a Diablo tuner. Maybe SCT now has a tuner that can do that as well, not sure.

I'll only end up upgrading the exhaust system, a CAI and a tuner. If I ever end up doing an engine rebuild, which I'd rather not have to do, I'll do some engine work in that case. Otherwise, a simple functioning tuner would be enough for me, I'm not into customizing right now.

I have a 2013 5.7L 4x4, has anyone installed the Diablo yet for this truck? If so, did you feel any difference? Thinking about getting one this week, looks like the best way to start waking up the truck.

Bolt on's and tuner make a big difference... Pound for pound $ for $ the trinity is the way to go.
