HP Tuners VCM Suite, is it any good, anyone here have any experience with this system and soft ware?
I have a chance to get it (owners of the company I work for are asking if they buy it for me will I use it) just wondering if it's worth it or should I try and get the diablo instead

It is the only way to tune the 8 speed trans. A lot of guys are going that route.
We'll be releasing 8 speed tuning support on i2 and Trinity in the next couple weeks.
I tuned one of my guys 15 Ram TCM yesterday and its chirping 3rd gear, and he says it feels like it picked up more power (lots of limiters, especially in the lower gears, in the TCM).

It will be custom tune only for the time being, but there are some solid gains to be had for sure.

Thanks

I'm looking at only because the guys who own the company are heavy in to the LS stuff, boss is buying it offered to hook us all up as a summer bonus.
it's supposed to be real good for the VVT motors. been looking around their site and it seams to be behind the curve for the older hemi Rams.

HP Tuners doesn't work as good as they say it does on a Dodge Hemi platform. It's works good on chevys though.
Not true... Works amazingly on the 09+ Cars and trucks.
I have not seen it used on 03-08 so I cannot vouch for that.

It doesn't work well on the gen 3 Hemi Rams. Bada44(Mark) had all sorts of problems with it. Got a tune from Keith and his truck started running good again.

I'm not all that interested in HP for the 05 GTx, I've read enough horror stories about hp and the G3 trucks that I'll wait or go diablo ,
the 05 Drag truck...if it goes Carb it's getting the MSD Hemi-6 set up.

This Thread is a bit old... And HP tune's has made some changes in their software and now have the ability to tune the Gen 3 Hemi trucks. My engine builder Billy GFBP has been successfully tuning gen 3 trucks with they're tuning platform... And if anyone is interested in buying it he can get it at a discount.

Well I guess we will know shortly if the new HP tuning works on our beloved g3's. Both Mark and I have them on order. My contribution to the thread will be very basic as I'll use a cheap dedicated laptop to run it on. Found one on Best Buys the meet the requirements. 2Gz, 4M ram, SSD drive, 14" screen and good battery life. HP uses credits, with dodge mostly calling for two credits ($49 ea.) Once your vehicle is licensed it has unlimited tuning. This may not be for everyone but I seemed to be continuously changing stuff. So doing my own tuning only makes sense. Those who are already tuned with cmr I have read and been told can convert their present tune to HP format and use it as a base tune. This platform is wide open and there is no safety net. To convert your current tune all you do is copy the tune from your pcm using the HP editor and save it. It now is in the HP format. Use your diablo and restore your original backup to the truck and the diablo is unmarried and can be disposed of in whatever manner you choose... Then load the saved HP tune and you have a good base tune to work from. Sounds simple, I should have everything together next week and we will actually see how simple it really is.

How much of a discount? I've been thinking about switching to it, but it has an extremely steep learning curve. I don't want to blow up an engine, which it will allow you to do...
