Update:

I talked to superchips this morning and they said we should have no issues with using the superchips along side the Sonnax resistor product that does the line pressure increase. He confirmed the superchips does not alter line pressures.

If you have a remote start you can use that to restart your Ram and the disable is not reset. It's only a key start the resets it.

The prime benefit is for Offroad use only (Track or Trail),
says so right on the screen when you use it...

It's the ones with TM settings altered that were reporting issues...

Ok gotcha.

I also found out while talking to them that the torque management options for my 4.7L differ than those of the 5.7L. I can not actually adjust the TM settings(percentage) on my truck, I can only set it to "stock" or "superchips". What the "superchips" setting does is alters the amount of time the program takes to complete the shift which makes the shift firmer. Apparently the programming for the shift has a preset duration, and the tuner shortens the duration.

I believe with the 5.7L I believe you can also adjust the percentage of the TM. This option is not available for the 4.7L.

That's what I was trying to explain yesterday

...that "some" claim are causing a conflict with the Sonnax line pressure booster on the "other" forum (DT)
and those are the ones with Sonnax issues

Guess you missed that.

Youll be fine. I have been running the SC and Sonnax together for a while now. And I have put a lot of hard miles on the combo without issue.
