In a word Awesome ! Even the 87 performance is a huge improvement over stock. The best performance wise is the 91 performance tune with the MDS turned off. I noticed you have an 11, did you get the tuner for your year ? Have they finally cracked the encryption code on the 11s.

yeah..... what the other guys said. We've all been waiting and waiting for programmers for '11+ and no one has one out yet. I'd say your sales rep lied to you.:doh:

I had to check! Superchips web site does not allow you to select 2011 or newer. :(

For awhile there, I thought the 2011+ members had a great option.

Who ever sold you on the Cortex either knows something that even Superchips doesn't know, or made a mistake. :4-dontknow:

^^^^ I did the same as well and could not select 2011+. I do feel bad for you however it looks like the sales rep you dealt with is not fully informed. :doh: The SC cortex is a great tuner so when they do crack the code for the 2011+ I'd say go for it. Hope you can get your money back.

Guys I was in touch with Super Chips and ask when the new programers would be coming out for the 2011 5.7 Hemi's. Well to my displeasure the teck informed me that because of the set up Dodge used from Fiat that the programing industry is more tat likely never going to produce a true "Power Programer for the 2011. Hope Dode regrets buying into Fiat ! If Dodge was smart they whould stick to USA companies for their parts.
Also in my opinion they would be smart on their part to figure out on their own how to come up with a programer before the Dodge Truck falls from the performance world.

Unfortunately it was Fiat that bought into Chrysler Corp to 'bail them out' and now has controlling interest. :( We are stuck with the Fiat mentality at the top of the ladder and they have not historically been a major player in the performance market as we know it. This is a corporate decision on their part and since they were the ones that were financially sound, they are in a great position to impose their thoughts and beliefs to our dismay. :sad:

^^ just call him and chew his ear off and make them give you your $$ back, all of it including any customs fees or anything AND make them pay to return it. Thats some BS


I know how we can tune our trucks, but im sure no one wants to buy a couple thousand dollar motec piggyback controller :(




There are companies out now that are doing 2010 PCM swaps, it WILL void your warrenty though

I don't think they'll give you trouble with the return if they really did give you bad info. They are pretty good people there. I'd try being nice first and see where that gets you ;)
