Well I went to summit today and picked up a T1000. Got it home, did all the necessary updates and programming and have it running in the truck no problems. Took a few hours of messing around on the computer but not terrible. I have the 03 hemi, and heard there isn't much tuning capabilities with the tranny but I've done the TMR delete already anyways. I've got two main questions right now. For one, 2003 Ram 1500 wasn't listed anywhere in the tuner options, so I went with selecting 2005 and it seemed to work ok, but I will be calling diablo after the holiday to get a good answer on that. And for number two, I didn't notice anything different! I'm running 89 octane in the truck and set it for 87 performance tune and nothing felt different in the least. Then I loaded the economy tune in and did some highway driving and mpg was exactly the same on the trip computer as it normally would be (after a fresh reset). Do I need to hard reset the pcm? Is this normal? I'm not expecting huge gains but something different would be nice for a $550 tuner.

The canned tunes are junk, You need a custom tune to make it worthwhile.

Ok so if I went hemi fever or such, do you just tell him give me a balence between mileage and power? Is it one or the other? How much better is 91 octane to justify .50 a gallon more around here?

Trade my SuperChips 3865 for it lol

Do you have Sam's Club near you? if you had a membership thru them, they offer 93 octane for usually 20 cents more than 87, at least in my area they do.

He can tell if you're running gas from there and will tell you to run gas from shell, bp, or Sunoco because he can see that the truck isn't running to its potential on gas from places like that.
