Question about 2004 Dodge Ram 1500
I have heard there exists a computer chip/card that can be installed to boost gas mileage by recalculating the fuel/air mixture that is injected into the intake. Is this true? If so, where can I purchase one? Can I install it myself, or should I take it to my local mechanic? Do you think it is worth the expense?
Thanks for responding.
It's True. On my diesel it makes about a 3 miles/gal. difference. It probably wouldn't be as much on a gas. Maybe about 1 or two mpg if you take it easy, but you will love the power increase (up to 30hp+), which will make it hard to take it easy. It will also give you firmer shifts. You can get programmers/chips on EBAY or possibly at a local performance shop. The programmers just plug under the dash and once the desired program is installed then you can unplug til you wanna change it. They cost anywhere from 300 to 800 bucks depending on the brand or features. I would recommend Superchips, Bully Dog or Edge. Hope this helps.
