I would be rather interested in having my dakota be a test vehicle. But I think I read somewhere that you guys are in Florida. I'm in Michigan. Well at the very least would there be a product available for my dakota ?

Good luck.

I tried to get one made years ago for my Dakota R/T I had and it never came about. Being that you're looking at a 15 year old vehicle, I doubt they'll provide a tune for it.

Best bet is to try SCT and HemiFever. See if they can help ya.

Not only is it a 15 year old vehicle, its one with a garbage motor. Nobody is going to support a sub-200hp V6 in a 4000lb pickup. Especially when a halfway decent V8 was available. I seriously doubt even SCT supports it.

Ehh. At least I tried haha. I'd swap a 5.2/5.9 in it, its just that I neither have the time nor tools/funds to pull that off. That and the fact that I cannot, for the love of god, find an NV3500 or NV4500 manual trans to put behind it, anywhere. I refuse to go back to an automatic.

Of course. Low end motor, low end tuner. :roll:

Nope. Never was. I'm just painfully blunt. I put everything out on the table. If somebody gets offended or hurt, so be it. Thats my NYC upbringing.

I should rephrase, SCT supports the body style/truck. I'm unsure if they support the 3.9.
