Default Quality Tuner?

Hey guys just wondering if anyone has any suggestions for a good tuner to purchase for the not so mechanically inclined?

You have the 4.7l motor so you should take a look at the Superchips. You do not have to be mechanically inclined to use the programmers out there. They are very simple to use you basically plug it in and follow the steps.

The Superchips is the best one out there for the 4.7l from what I have heard on this forum. There are different brands out there like Bully Dog.....but go with the Superchips

The only thing is I dont think the Diablosport makes a tuner for the 4.7l 2008 Ram

On their website they list 2008 4.7 as the first year for the diablosport predator part#u7137. I've been trying to find reviews and comparisons on it for a few days and keep coming up with nothing for reviews for the 4.7. Superchips kinda the same. But before i joined i read a lot of praising for both.

The DiabloSport hasn't been available for the 4.7 very long, that's why there aren't that many reviews. I've had the Superchips for my 4.7 for a while now, and I really like it. It's one of my favorite mods.

I can't give you an exact number, because I had the tuner, exhaust, and intake installed at the same time. The Mileage XS tune is a great option, I'd say 2 MPG is a safe number (depending on how you drive)
