^ This is also true! Might also add though that waiting for your Warranty to run out is advised as they can tell right away when hooking up to the dealers computer what you have done. And I know most dealers around my area would void any and all warranties because of it :P! Not to mention loosing track of engine hours. Which to some isn't a big deal, but I know a couple that were upset at the fact. To me if he were going to procharge the truck your warranty isn't much of a concern though eh? :P

I have to vent a little.

I am not looking to tune my Ram right now, since it is under warranty for 3 years.

But I would have liked to be able to play once that warranty is gone.

My guess is that Chrysler got tired of having to deal with those who modify their trucks, blow them up and then try and get repairs under warranty. That and federal emission laws, I suppose.

We all know guys who tuned their engines, then, when they goofed and blew something up, took it to the dealer claiming it was a stock vehicle.

Sure, they can tell what has been done, but then they have to have a confrontation with customers who will insist they didnt do anything.

With the rolling code, that takes that all and tosses it. No longer an issue. No more "irate" customers at the dealership, no more costs for work done on vehicles they know have been tampered with but give in to quiet someone up, etc.

Now, even once we are out of warranty, we will be hosed.

All thanks to the idiots out there who felt that someone else should pay for their experiments.

Thanks guys.

Too bad honesty is no longer common. We all pay now.

Ok...end of rant....LOL

Just a matter of time before the aftermarket will get to the 11/12 rams.

Well Shadango, that is certainly one way for Dodge to look at it, but...... I can only speak here for myself... I have never been a Dodge fan. I dabbled in musclecars for a long time (all Chevs) and have had many 4x4 trucks (all Fords) although none of them were new. Recently I decided it was time to buy my first ever new truck and after looking at the Big 3, opted for the Dodge. The big selling point for me was the hp, as I am going through my mid life crisis. Now, I take full responsibility for the decision as I DIDN'T do enough homework... If I would've known that no tuner was available now (and possibly ever), I would have bought a Ford!!!! I don't understand how they hope to control the performance truck market with marketing strategies like that.. I really feel sorry for the guys who spend the big bucks for the HP Challengers and encounter the same trouble!!! Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love my truck, but I hate being told what I can and can't do with my truck. If there is still no tuner by next summer, it will be going bye-bye and I will be driving a Ford.

I think the point for us 2011+ owners is getting this done without doing the swap for all the reasons that have been identified already as for warranty and what not.

To the person that is going back to ford.

Why not do the ECU swap to a 2010 then you would be able to mod your 2011.

Instead your talking about going to a ford doing a couple of performance upgrades and increasing the Fords hp just to match what you already have in a none mod Ram.

I did not buy a brand new truck to do unproven mods. If that ecm swap was so easy, why are these pages not full of success stories? As for the mods bringing another truck up to where the Ram is now, I would greatly surpass it. I would love to put a Supercharger on my Ram, but can't. If Ripp or any of the other SC distributors could sell a ECM with their SC, I think they would. I just hope (and pray) that DOdge see's the light and lets us modify our trucks the way we want to..... Nuff said.....

I have to agree. A s/c on the new 5.0 or 6.2 would be a beast.

Well there is a guy on another forum with a ecu swapped express rc with spray running low 12s(like 12.3 @ 108).

But a fi 5.0 or 6.2 is sick! Hell the old 5.4 whippled made like 415 rwhp(which is like 10 rwhp less than a maggied 4th gen hemi makes)

There are threads where people have actually done the ecm swap. Most people with 2011+ wont do it because of warranty issues. I have however seen a thread or two that have done this and had no issues with it. But like stated it will void your warranty. So, if you dont want you warranty you could do this upgrade for the fee of a 2010 ECM and be on your way with performance upgrades, like a SC

All Dodge has to do is put active memory which permantely stores all engine parameters that are encripted so only they can access them. Then leave it up to each person if they want to mod it and chance it voiding waranty or not. I personally have never left anything alone, I Procharged my Mustang GT after just 8 months of buying it new.
