I don't know that for certain no. It's possible that the pcm notes the changes or whatever But my dealer never said anything about it when they did an update on the truck but maybe they can check it, i don't know...

Isn't there anyone here that works by a dealer, maybe he can tell us more about it

It's always possible that something breaks or the motor blows up, but then you really have to mess with your truck i think, and it's still a truck, not a race car !
I i would like to race all the time, i buy me an srt or a challenger srt 8

FWITW there has been more than a few 3G's that have had blown trannies replaced under warranty just fine. They ran DSP or SC and return it to stock prior to going to the dealership of course.
Maybe there are crawlers now that can detect any 3rd party code remnants for the 4th gens.

I didn't remove anything except the air intake and the motor cover. I wonder if everyone else that has done their own change was suprised at the condition of their plugs?
Do your self a favor and add a piece of rubber tubing that fits tight over the top connector of the plug to your tool box. Make it long enough to insert the plug down the tube and turn to start threading the plug in the head. I have been doing this for too many years to tell and have never missed the hole or cross threaded a plug. This works on all engines and locations.

Great idea. I read that somewhere else also. I didn't do it tho. Probably because I didn't have any tubing around. However I did turn it very easy with the extension until it was finger tight, which was almost all the way in. I never felt the slightest bit of tension or restriction. If I would have I would have stopped immediately! Hopefully I don't have any issues. Thanks for the tip tho!

My Ram has just turned 29,000 on the OD and I was just thinking about getting the plugs changed. Has anybody tried the E3 Diamond Fireplugs on an 09, 10, or 11 Ram? Been hearing good things about them and even seen them on a few car shows on TV. They are about $6 a piece.... What do you all think?

There has been a post on this site or another on someone who tried the E3 plugs. They took them out because the check engine light came on and some other issues. I read a bunch of posts before I changed mine, and most people including mechanics said stay with the stock NGK plugs. They are around $75 from your dealer for all 16.

What happens when you use a tuner, have a catastrophic failure and don't have the opportunity to return to stock settings? Problem!
