    I am thinking of adding an Edge programmer or equivalent to see if I can get a little better fuel mileage. 2013 Sport hemi engine. Does anyone have any feedback for me? Thanks for your time.

    Make sure you have good spark plug wires and I wonder if the alternator will cause ones ride to go up in smoke. :rofl:

    Economy is one setting on a Programmer, since each rig is different there is really no exact info to share. I've had buddies that have also changed to a Cold Air Intake, Exhaust, and sometimes Injectors and have got a huge increase on different rigs.

    Do a true cold air intake if you're going to go that route. Just adding a cheap short ram the leaves the filter exposed to the engine bay increases intake temps by 40+ degrees. Resulting in a loss of power and economy. Also be aware that changing intakes does no good unless you get the computer reflashed for the additional air entering the engine. Simply buying a tuner will not do this as they are only preprogrammed with basic parameters. There is no replacement for a solid computer tune. Superchips and bullydog tuners a re decent upgrades, but will not unlock the trucks true potential. I second the exhaust suggestion though. A good free flowing exhaust is a definite upgrade.
