If Diablo is available, that is the only option

Thats the thing ive allready got the best of all the miner mods ...open exaust k&n cold air intake hypertech power programmer cooler running thermostat etc... im about the go through the motor from the inside out and if i dont upgrade the pcm it will restrict what the motor can really do given that ive rebuilt the trany by then with the ramzilla kit

you're not going to see a huge difference over the programmer you already have. the Mopar Performance PCM isn't going to be any different that your stock PCM with a power programmer on it.

there's only so much you can get out of the engine as it is. to build more horsepower, you are going to have to start from the inside out. pistons, crank, rods, camshaft, heads, intake, ect., ect.,,,,

buy a 408 CI Magnum crate engine for it.

Personally I'm an SCT guy.. The consensus is the hyper tech programmer is a slightly lower line vs the SCT and Diablo, that said if you already have a tuner/programmer you have nothing at all to gain by swapping PCMs.. It is my understanding that Diablo programmers are preferred by the Dodge guys..

Exactly.. You will only gain a lighter wallet, so I guess.. You'll lose..
