How does the Predator increase shift performance? Because, It's not like it just eases into gear...there's an actual hesitation; same as other have described in previous posts.

Thanks alot!

It can give it a more positive shift. It does not have the head snapping positive shifts as an LX vehicle, but that is because Chrysler uses a shitty transmission in the trucks that does not respond well to major programming changes. But for what you want the Predator will work just fine.

So far on my 2008 CTD 6.7 Bighorn, I've had three reflashes and one Particulate Filter replaced. Had 17800 on the filter. Now have 22K. Milage is bad. Went from a hi of 178 hand calculated back down to about 14ish now. My 05 5.9 wasn't a whole lot better. I do keep the brake on and shift it down to 4th below 40mph.

I find myself so frequently trying to give you rep points it won't let me. Even when I can't show it I appreciate the advise.

Having to spread around rep points makes that kind of difficult at times but it does keep the system from being abused.

HAha, keep that up and pretty soon you'll have a truck with no miles on it. Sounds like a winner to me

Default air bag light

do you know of any tsb's regarding airbag fault codes? I also have my 310s but my scan tool doesn't access airbag codes and my wifes 06 ram just had the airbag light come on and stay on.
