larry you might consider changing all your fluids over to royal purple, atleast the oil axle fluid and transfer case. i did on my truck and seemed to notice a difference plus even with 205000 miles on it the oil comes out a nice light brown on 5000 miles changes. price is a little higher but its worth it in my opinion especially the engine oil.

Look up HemiFever and his SCT tuners, all I have heard were positive things. Wanna get one myself once I get the greenbacks...

Default I don't think so...

I have been looking for chips and programmers for a while. They either tell me they can't help or don't even bother to reply....Use high grade fluids, plugs, wires, ignition, and cold air intake and that is the best we 488 owners can do...especially since the engine is OOP...

*Edit update:
I just called and unless you have a computer made after 1998...you're stuck. For us with early 2nd gen V10s; there isn't even anyone out there programming chips...sucks to be us...

I have been scratching my head over this for a while. I have a '94 so the OBDII programmers can't configure my chip. I called many places and for us that have a Ram older than '98 might be out of luck. However, I did get a reply with help from a guy who can program OBDI computers. He's closed this weekend but I plan to call tomorrow...here's the link I have:

Let me know how the rest of you make out!
