Default 5.9L 360 Power Programmer

I have a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 Sport with the 5.9L 360. I was wondering if anyone has any experience with any Programmers for this motor.

The Superchip Flashpaq 3865
https://www.superchips.com/#pn=onlin...talog&vfid=399
The Website says you gain 46.9 HP Gain and 59.4 lb-ft torque. That is just kind of hard to believe for a gasser..

The other one I found was the Hypertech Max Energy Power Programmer - Part #52000.
This one says 10+ HP and 21 torque 87 octane
21+ HP and 35 torque 93 octane

I was just wondering if anyone has had experience with either, and would you recommend either of these.

Thanks in advance.

I have a 97 Ram, with a hypertech in it... I didn't notice anything when I put it in.

Not a thing. I didn't dyno it or anything crazy like that... But again it's not the superchip maybe super chip is better. To be honest I think my MPG went down

Mopar actually makes a performance computer for that motor. I have one on my 98 5.9 ZJ.
It seemed to improve HP, but I didn't notice any MPG difference.

Any Suggestions for increased performance without digging to far into the engine?

I have done some research on power programmers for my truck (same motor) and 90% of the people with them said they felt no gains.

I have SCT for my 5.2L ZJ. My butt-dyno isn't very sensitive, but I'd say I noticed an increase in power. I definitely noticed a difference due to the removal of torque management.

I got mine through Sean Powell, hemifever@aol.com
He has had a sale going on for a while, I'm not sure if it is over with or not. It was $250 for the tuner and three "canned" tunes or $350 for the tuner and lifetime custom tuning through him. If you go with the custom tuning you will want to pick up a wideband o2 and data logger so you can emial him the data and he will tweak your tune. His regular price was $450 & $550.

You’ll probably want to pick up a 180deg t-stat. Beyond that the basics are 52mm TB, modify the intake manifold, headers and high flow exhaust.

pace setter long tube headers with a 3'' exhaust all the way back, not huge difference but i love the way it drives now, revs up through the gears alot faster, cold air, t-stat, and do whats called a kegger mod on the intake, lil bit of work not alot of money to do, but they all work together i think, i got 3.73 gears and 35''s and get 16mpg going back and forth to work on and off highway, with my powertrax in the rear too...,

I have the hypertech programmer for my '99 and I'd say the "power" increase is about as noticable as installing an air intake system. (if that makes sense)

The main thing for the programmer was to program the tire size to get the speedo and shift points back in range, which works great.
