This tuner brought this old Dodge to life. I would have never imagined that it would make that much difference. Very pleased.

The tuner is super easy plug and play use. It has helped with shifting in my truck not nearly as hard as it used to be and accelerates a lot faster. Would be better if you could go into the advanced settings and tell if you have a cold air intake or additions. Also not super user friendly in the advanced settings that they have. Not sure how to use some of the extra fratures with idol control or spark plug timing. Other than that not a great deal of mpg gain but expected with the power gain.

WOW! Here's the facts. I programmed my old Dodge Cummins 4x4 automatic trans to stage three. This truck is only used for towing and the FAQs reccommended stage 3. My previous towing milage was 14.6 mpg while towing 5000 lbs. Reprogrammed I got 21.4 mpg towing at 55mph on cruise, and 21.6 mpg towing at 60mph. This was towing over a 1200' grade during a 200 mile round trip. Milage while not towing is about the same, 22.4 mpg as opposed to the previous 18 mpg. I now cruise up hills the truck used to struggle on with excellent throttle response. My only regret about buying the Hypertech Energy Max is that I didn't buy it years ago and save myself thousands by now.
