Some are universal and can be used for different vehicles (new Diablosport intune and BullyDog GT to name 2). Others can only be used on one vehicle but some can be unlocked.

For the 4.7 there aren't as many options as there is for the hemi. I have the BullyDog GT and I like it. And I have the Diablosport Intune ordered. The GT is pretty straight forward with not many extra tuning options, just 3 to choose from. It's great for what it is, but now that I want some more options like the ability to run custom tunes, I have the Intune coming.

I'd recommend the GT for it's ease of use and it really wakes up the 4.7. If you don't want the hassle of multiple tuning options and therefore the potential for more issues if not done correctly, the GT is no mess no fuss, but if you want more options, you're best to look elsewhere. I'm hoping that Diablosport has come out with something that works well for the 4.7 as it has not been long since it has even released a tuner that works for it, but I won't know until I get mine. So at this point I can only offer feedback on the GT.
