    Tuner/chip for Ram Hemi ?

    Anybody got sage advice on a tuner for 2006+ Dodge Ram 1500 with 5.7L Hemi?

    My used '08 Ram 1500 quad cab 5.7L Hemi came with duals aftermarket, a K&N CAI....and a 13.5MPG on 89 octane gas addiction.

    I now am improved to 14.5-15MPG, locally, as long as I baby the hell out of it, but would sure like to see another +2 or +3MPG.

    I have been wanting to pick up a tuner to try to improve my fuel economy, but have been reading conflicting messages about buying/using one on the Hemi with the MDS system+torque converter clutch. (Most are just using a tuner or reprogram to "lose" the MDS, and also losing 1-2MPG by doing so)

    Has anyone tuned their Ram and KEPT the MDS, or know anyone who has done so?
    Gas mileage improvement noted? How much?
    What tuner best for the Ram, and what basic settings?


    Thanks.

    My fault for putting "chip" in the title, but I really prefer to use a programmer.
    I don't need any additional HP, anyway. Just looking to improve mileage, and possibly get rid of the MDS

    Nice mods!
    Did you do your own adjustments, or purchase a 'custom' tune?

    So you made your own adjustments, then...?
    Or the 3715 came pre-loaded, and no adjustments are available to the user?

    I've got the 4.7-which sucks- but I am going to try this, since it's a little safer for the engine.
