Superchips has them also. I am sure we can find some more, that was a 30 second google search.

I probably won't mod my Hemi but it is nice to know that options are there if I want to.
I'm about 99% sure none of those tuners will work with the 2011 WK2 or the vendors would be advertising this capability. Each year usually brings some changes that the tuners need to account for before they add that model year to the packaged tunes. I'm sure they will become available in time and Marlin's 100% correct, getting into the motor before there are tuners available isn't too wise.

We are refering to WK2 here mate, so no, your 30 second Google search/Diablo is of no use.

The WK2, while sharing essentially the exact same engine, has a totally new body computer, and as such, needs a new Diablo/Superchips/whatever

cool - I didn't know that. I asked and someone said the motors were the same so I assumed it would work just fine. I had a tuner for my 4.6 in my old crown vic that I got from a guy with a 4.6 from a mustang so I figured it would be fine in Hemi land.
