I'm using a local trans shop. I've got parts and help from him before. He's an old school guy and seems to know his stuff. I'm going to let him do everything because of time alone. Hopefully it tows better and is something to play with from time to time when I'm done.

250 hp @ 2900 rpm ~ 49 States

95ram, please keep us up to date on progress.
Will do. There are also the HO's which are 305hp. I chose the 250 hp built before January 2003 because I could keep my transmission (47RE) and knew the smarty would bring the SO up to HO power. The Smarty adds 30 RWHP to an HO on level 1. On an SO level 1 adds 85 RWHP.

I noticed you said your getting a Touch. I consider the Smarty the best for our trucks, but everyone has their preferences, and that's ok. You can run the SW5 for HP and timing, but have to be easy on the skinny pedal or your trans will eat it. You can run it at SW3 for HP and timing without issue. Even more HP than stock and should get better mpg.

I've been running the S06 PoD on the SW5 and never had an issue, but I do drive like a grandpa anyway. Our trucks cost to much to abuse like I did in my kid days with Mustangs and Firebirds. As soon as I can get the Touch on a pillar attachment I will be putting mine in. I will not have it on the window attachment. I have a Garmin and that attachment drives me nuts with the suction cup falling once in a while and the electrical cable hangs in the way.

If your not on the Smarty sight: http://smartyresource.net/forum/forum.php
You should join and research, lots of info there and SmartyBrian who runs it is great in helping you.

Once the transmissions get swapped I won't be worried about it. The trans in my 98 is full billet from Goerend and that's what's going into the 03. I do love the smarty. I've had one on my 06 and both of my 01's. I also want to use the pillar mount because I don't like the suction cup mount. Where are you getting it from? I didn't know about the Smarty form. I'll check that out, thank you.

I found the Edge controllers had the same snap in's as the Smarty Touch. Edge has an adapter for the pillar mount: http://edgeproducts.com/products/uni...dapter-A98004/

Mine should arrive Monday. What gets me is the cost, it's $25.00, then the shipping is from $17.50 on up. I took the 2 business day shipping and it was $22.00 more, total of $47.00. But then I didn't want to wait the up to 8 business days I've experienced in the past with UPS ground.

And this info was found on the Smarty site, look in the Touch section at the beggin of the forum. For my year, the Edge Dash Pod http://edgeproducts.com/products/2006-2009-hd-2006-2008-ld-dodge-ram-dash-pod-comes-with-cts-and-cts2-adaptors--A38505/[/url] ) works, but I didn't want to cut my dash cover and double stick to my dash. My dash is perfect and I want to keep it that way.

The Edge dash pod like this works pretty well on these trucks, but it's not everyone's cup of tea for sure.

Edge pillar mount is probably the best for Rams, here's how it looks on a newer Ram:

I've been wanting one of these but they are for the 4th gen ONLY, and NO one makes one for the 3rd gen or older. It's a shame .. they are clean, blends in with the interior and looks like it sets where it isn't in the way. I didn't see one in the CARiD webpage, (I looked) is there one for the '06's I missed ?

They do make those for 03-09. Thank you for the pic. That's the mount I wanted and wasn't sure it'd work.

95ram, would you please let us know the website you found the pillar mount at. As for CARiD's picture, they are only for the 2010 - 2015 Dodge, (I just came from there), if you found one for the 3rd gen I very much like to know where.

And what years does it work with ?
Who makes it ?
I spent the extra for something like that, but can't find one to fit my '06.
