PCM unlock install.

Surprisingly easy. I was expecting something harder...went so fast I didn't even have time to take photos.
I ordered a new unlocked ECU/PCM from Diablo and it came on Thursday.

Went out, popped the hood, pulled off the hot lead from the battery and 3 10mm bolts later the old unit was out and the new one was in.

Truck started right up and drives......I am amazed. I expected it NOT to work. That the truck would somehow no longer start, or all my settings, options, etc would all be gone...nope. Easy as pie.

Next up....waiting another week or so for the Procharger stuff to come.

LOL....

Okay...so I wanted to super charge my truck. Many other people want to just use tuners. Trucks have 'locked' PCM from manuafacture these days.
So...

I ordered this
Modified PCM Only 2015 5.7L - 8 Speed 1500 - Products Gasoline and Diesel Tuning Systems | Diablosport
Which is a new PCM that is unlocked so you can make changes to the programs in it.

So that when I install this
https://www.procharger.com/truck-superchargers/dodge/ram-1500/2014-11-57-hemi

I can use the hand held tuner that comes with the kit to tune the truck and not blow up.

Well in theory not blow up ;)
