Generally speaking- no. The current owner should have it cleared and unmarried to any vehicle before offering it for sale.

Dude, get a diablo. It's a programmer with solid support for the Hemi. Yes, it can be a bit more expensive, but I'd rather pay $250 for a good tuner instead of $3-$5k for a motor because of an unknown tuner/programmer.

Never heard of a max micro tuner...? I agree with seattlepete get a well known tuner that many use and won't cause damage. Diablo and superchips both are great products, neither will cause damage unless you do something stupid with them. There are others like hypertech, bullydog, etc... but for the same price you get a lot more with the other two. Check out superchips forums and see what people are using for your engine. I don't know but I'd guess diablo has a forum too you could check out. If you don't plan on cam/headwork I'd get superchips for the tranmission options...

the max micro tuner is made by superchips, its been discontinued. was lookin it up last night and it has the stock 87 tune, and the 91-93 perfomance tune and 91-93 tow tune, and can recalibrate the speedo for tire sizes and can adjust the rev limiter ect, just cant update it as it cant be pluged into a computer

I see, I'd offer even less, but $100 is probably fair. You can get a used newer model for like $200-$250.
