Hey guys. After many hours of cross eyed searching, I cant find any answers. Heres what I got going on. Im taking my 98 Ram 1500, 318, auto, 4x4 and swapping it to a 360, NV4500 5 speed. I have almost everything figured out, except the PCM. I have found a PCM from a 98 Ram 2500, 360, 5 speed, but it has the death flash. I do have a Hypertech Max Energy programmer though. Will the programmer fix the death flash? Also I have found that the 2000 PCM for the 5.9 manual trans has a good bit more horsepower and torque stock, than the 98 with the programmer on it. My programmer will do a 2000 computer also. So my other question is, If i get a 2000 5.9 manual trans PCM, will it work on my 98? I have heard it will and have heard it wont. Or can I program the 98 5.9 manual trans computer to the 2000 setup?

I don't see why it won't work. The 98,2000 are both obd 2 set up. The power difference between the 2 is just programming.

Id stick to the 2000 pcm. The death flash might be a bigger pain then its worth.
