Did you ever get a tune from either?

I just ordered a i3+PCM and have been chatting with Jay, he's been VERY quick to respond. Planning on working with him later this week.
Not yet, Jay was on vacation and just opened back up yesterday, wanted to give some time,, his FB page him asking for space this week for those who need startup tunes.

Hemifever I've tried contacting through email, instagram, fb and have not got a response. I have a work truck so the Ram only comes out on weekends so I have not been really pushing to hard to get one. I can say the 93 octane tune definitely livened it up for now

I chatted with Jay a bunch on Facebook last night. Sean replied to me email this morning.

I’m waiting on my I3 to get shipped and then I will probably work with Jay. Just liked his interaction more at this point.

I3 should be here tomorrow and then I’ll work with Jay. Should be interesting to feel the results.

Hoping a side effect is improved gas mileage (when I’m not beating on it) as the e-torque has been terrible with about 16.5 mpg at 75mph.

Looking forward to hearing how the custom tune works out, especially if it helps gas mileage

Received the i3 and unlocked PCM today.

Couldn't get a 87 tune loaded at first, so did a modified stock tune. Got that loaded finally and was able to get the truck started. Just took the stock tune and disabled MDS and auto start/stop.

However Uconnect is all messed up and missing all my options, so no seat controls, no running boards, no cameras, backup camera doesn't work either. So need to figure that out.

Well looks like this happens to Uconnect whenever you disconnect the battery, so that's fun. I will check in the morning and see if my options are back. Stupid you can't reset it

Sure enough, Uconnect was back to normal this morning, what a stupid system though.

I flashed everything this morning with the 87 Diablo tune and a perf trans tune. Sent all the files off to Jay @ Greene, he confirmed within a few minutes he got them. So we will see when the new tunes show up!

Ok, so I had sent my stock files to Jay yesterday morning, i had tunes in my email by 10pm last night. I got the PCM and TCM tunes loaded into the vehicle a little bit ago and went for a drive. Very very smooth, the trans (TCM) tune is much better than stock. Truck feels a lot quicker, so I would say definitely worth it. I'm very curious to see if there is a MPG increase on highway, there wont' be around town as i'll be on it all the time :)

But with the stock calibration i was getting 16.5mpg doing 75mph on the highway, which kind of sucked. So we'll see if it's better with Jay's tune. If it's not, well at least i'm making more power all-around :)

The Diablo i3 is a nice little tuner, much better than the SCT X4 i've used multiple times in the past. I did make the mistake of not putting the stock files on before applying the custom tunes and it had trouble with the TCM file. It recovered and applied the stock PCM/TCM just fine and then i started over with the 91 octane PCM and TCM tune.

You will need to clear codes after the tune, it leaves a bunch, not sure why those don't get cleared out. And yes there are some permanent codes in there now as a result (i can see with another device). Not sure which one is the one dealer knows the PCM had been changed, but i'm not shocked that they can tell you replaced it. No biggie. Even though my truck is actually a lease, it won't be to the dealer until i turn the lease in (unless something major goes wrong).

I will be posting my I3 and PCM for sale shortly. Pulled them out of truck as I’m trading it in. Used them for a month.
If anyone is after one.

If you don't mind me asking, what are the details of your trade? Original msrp, year, mileage, etc.

It's always good to know where you stand on things like this.
