NASCAR doesnt use superchargers. they are naturally aspirated

but as far as chips go, i wouldnt use one. it only tricks the PCM instead of reprogramming it, better to go with a tuner

and i would use a supercharger as well, no spin up lag like you get with a turbo

I'm not going for turbo or supercharger at this point...just want to increase mileage and up hp some. I have a 5.9. What tuners would you folks recommend?
Thanks,
Bill

4.7 tuner?
Superchips is the only option. The #3842 programmer (#3841 for California vehicles) is the updated version of the #3865 programmer which some of us use. I know of at least one 2010 Dakota owner who used the SC 3865 on his truck without any problem.

Read the vehicle applications though, I'm not positive that it works past the 2008 models, according to different websites. Some sites say it works, and some not.
