I also have a '98 318 with a 5spd and wondered if it would be of any value to me as well.

Jetchip= paperweight.

Buy the Superchips, or better investigate the SCT tuner. There's a guy named Hemifever that really knows his stuff on how to program them.
There is one downgrade to a SCT, you cannot adjust your tire size you can with the Superchips.

I recommend the Superchip Flashpaq over Jet.

I have the Superchips Flashpag on both my trucks and love it. Don't known much about the Jet, just that everything I've read says its not worth the cost. The SCT is suppose to be good, except you have to take to a shop to have it programed. If you have one locally and they can program it for your truck. With the Superchips its ready, you just go on line for upgrades.

I have a 96 Ram 1500... i went to the superchips website and tried looking up a tuner for my truck but realized they only start at 98.. they dont go as far as 96. Now is there really that big of a difference b/w the models? I believe the stock horsepower is different but would it hurt putting on a tuner for say a 98 on a 96?

The '96 ram has either an OBDl system or an early version of the OBDll, which was only around untill 98 when they went to a newer OBDll system.
You might check with this guy to see if his SCT tunes will work on earlier Dodges. hemifever@aol.com

Talk to your local dyno tuner he will know best. Also I reccomend Getting a dyno tune not a preprogrammed chip he will be able to get the most power for the mods that you have added. That way you can go back to that dyno tuner if you add new mods in the future without having to buy a chip also. Just my .02
