    Tuning options for Dodge Mopar

    just wondering if anyone has found any tuning solutions for Dodge? my Ram could use some tuning and last time i checked only tuning was high dollar, secret squirrel SCT, and no datalogging capabilities at the time. the rest were generic tuners. im wondering if anyone has hacked the factory calibration and what hardware/software options are out there now. the truck is a 1997 Ram SS/T with the 360 magnum.


    thanks

    Basic OBDII data logging is not an issue, Scan XL Pro.

    i just took a look at scan xl pro and it looks decent, as long as i can use that to do the same as with TPV5 then ill probably get it. im wondering if its even doable to tune this PCM though, if i cant flash it myself ill probably say forget it for now considering im already on a tight budget. MS or GMecm may be too much trouble, it was a bitch to tune the mustang with the 7730, especially with the E cam. and its a stick, hard to imagine tuning shift points for auto.

    Diablo Sport has a LOT of Dodge tuning support.

    It's not uncommon to change a PCM/VCM (or whatever Dodge calls them?) in a GM. Look into system differences and it may be a swap?

    I missed the "1997."

    I haven't seen any software for older Dodges, not saying it's not out there, just never something that I've even stumbed across.

    i think the major difference is pre-98 regulated the alternator voltage. i can probably swap it to a newer one and add a voltage reg to the alt. ill look at the PCM this week and see if i can cross reference it.

    Yeah, I PM'd Hemifever a few times to try and get some help with tuning my Dakota, but he didn't seem to interested in pointing me in the right direction to acquire the software myself, even after explaining, that I tune my own GM EFI equipped vehicles, and didn't want a mail order tune...

    Yea the complete lack of tuning support for the ecm in my wrangler is the reason I am converting it to a GM ecm. I am planning on making it my springtime project. I have already bought a complete engine harness off ebay from a wreked YJ of the same year. I have got it stripped down and making the required changes to use the gm ecm.

    well that needs to change lol. SCT is a scam, i wish someone would hack one of these and release it to the public. a friend of mine spent over 1G for the SCT PRP package back in 2009 and had to sign a non disclosure agreement. there must be information floating around on the net. ill keep searching lol
