Does anyone know the part number or item number for the Diablo tuner. I'm wanting the hotrod performance tune. I've read the descriptions on ebay til I'm damn near cross eyed. Any info on where to buy one for the best price would be greatly appreciated as well.

There is no way to tune the 2011-12 as of now. The computer system is encrypted. The only way to tune your truck would be swap a 2010 ecu into your truck. I've seen the swap done on a 2011. I'm not sure it would work on the 2012 due to the 6-Speed transmission. Mopar/Dodge is really disappointing me with this tuning issue. When I contact Mopar, I hear "we're working on it." I know they're stalling because there is no "working on it." Just hand over the codes to the aftermarket companies. It's that simple. That's my humble opinion.

C'mon guys...do you really think they're "working on it" when 60% of their profits come from the service department. Why would they want you to be able to tune your own car when theyv'e set certain performance parameters in order to keep the engine detuned to the point that they can afford to offer you the mileage and years of warranty coverage?

If you keep the rpm's below a certain threshold, and the shift points to a certain rpm point....it saves the wear and tear on the engine....thus they can offer the warranty and by a lot of testing on their dyno and measuring wear factors....can tell that if you stay below a certain performance threshold, you increase the longevity of the engine and drive train XXX miles or years. By locking you out the ability to tune your engine and tranny to ABOVE factory recommended (and locked in stats) and testing thresholds, they in essence potentiially, and the operative word is "potentially" decrease the possibility of mechanical failures or shortened life of the drive train, be it in the engine, drive train, or other related parts. ..very basically, they detune your engine for longer life and allow them to offer a 36K warranty. No big mystery really.
