    Just got my truck back and somewhat dissapointed with the power.
    Charger installed at dealership at 30k miles.
    I have 2 years left on PT warranty.
    Is there a way to tune the truck and still be able to maintain coverage if something needed warranty repairs?

    Your can get your truck tuned with and aftermarket piggy back ecu/tuner. But you need to remove it before taking it to a dealer and make sure that it doesnt leave a footprint behind or the dealers may find it and void your warranty. Had a friend with a power stroke with a banks six gun tuner on it and he popped a head gasket he removed the tuner and took it in to the dealer because it was still under warranty and the tuner left a footprint and they found it and voided his warranty he had to pay out of pocket.

    Does Gadget have the UCON for the 09+ yet? Last I heard was that it was only available for 05-08's.

    :( hopefully some day....I'd like to dump my unichips and get one. Although I still need to actually tune the Unichips so I guess i'll see how it works out. If its crap atleast I know there's one out there that will work.
