Thumbs up What is the best PCM upgrade

I am new to the forum and to owning a SRT-10 pickup. I have added a cold air intake and the magnaflow exhaust. I would like to know what is the best upgrade to the pcm or is there a chip upgrade for the vehicle. Thank you for any advice.

To upgrade the PCM talk to DC performance(supporting vendor). They have two options for you. They can give reflash your current PCM or you can get a new flashed PCM. That way you can return the truck to stock without having to worry about your warranty. And sometimes dealers will re-flash the pcm with upgrades which could wipe out your performance tune.

The other option DC has is the SCT Tuner. It is a handheld programmer that is easy to use, plus if you get more mods they can probably email you a better tune made to your mods.

Do you have a RC or a QC? If you have a RC I would get rid of the cats first. It will make it louder. It just depends on how loud you like the exhaust. Currently I have the cat delete and getting ready to put some headers on.

DC Perf stage two dude. With the cats gone it really wakes up throttle response. Truck pulls much harder as well. A mod worth the money IMO.

What he said -- I chose the SCT Tuner option its easy to use and there is no swapping of your PCM -- it rocks - and yes they CAN email you tune updates. IMHO it's the way to go

Yeah same here with the SCT from DC. Dont make the same foolish mistake I did. I bought one of those JET chips that just plugs into your computer. What a f@#%ing joke....
By the way, Jet chip for 05 QC for sale. Perfect condition paid 260 will sacrifice for 100.

So I noticed most everyone that replied has the DC flash and not the B&G. Since both are offering the SCT now is there any reason why everyones now leaning toward the DC one? Anyone tried the ROE flash? Gov't stimulus checks are coming soon and I'm wanting to help out the economy

B&G does (or at least used to do) the flashes for DC.
If you buy an SCT controller, you can have that vendor load it up with different tunes or pay someone else to load it and tune for you.
Once you have the SCT, the choice of tuners is yours.
