Default power programmer question

I have an 01 ram with the 5.9L 360 in her. I've researched quite a bit as far as tuners go for my truck. Is the superchips flashpaq my best option? My mods will be an a CAI, exhaust and maybe a 180* tstat, but thats about it. Does diablosport make the predator tuner for my truck? I couldnt find one on their website. thanks guys

I think Superchips is an excellent option for your truck. One of the cheaper options is a Jet module, but I really think you'll like the Superchips a lot more.

No, DiabloSport does not make a programmer for your year truck. Superchips is a good option, forget about the Jet module, and check out B&G performance for another option.

I'd go with and in fact WILL be going with an SCT tuner. Much better than superchips. The SCT allows you to eliminate the torque management like the B&G option but doesn't require you to send in your ECM...or restrict you to premium gas. SCT's are also reprogramable like the Superchips.
Contact hemifever@aol.com for a hookup. This guy has helped lots of Dodge owners.

Email hemi fever and he will send you the info you need. I suggest this only because he specializes in tunes for Dodges, particularly the magnum engine.
You can buy the SCT tuner anywhere. But most dealers usually have canned or custom tunes for other brands.
www.sctflash.com is the site.
