    Rated 1 out of 5 by from check engine limp mode i bought this 3 months ago and tested it out on a 3000 mile trip across the US for my job. This unit set off a check engine light and/or put it into limp mode everyday. This item is useless if you want to use wide open throttle ever example highway merge at 70 stomped to 80 mph posted speed. Biggest waste of money huge disappointment

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a differance! After installing the Pulsar on a 2017 Ram 1500 the response to the gas pedal being pushed was vastly improved. Also being able to disable the MDS is a great feature. Installation takes about 15 mins with a 10mm socket and wrench.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Causing issues I had this professionally installed and since my truck has stalled while driving 3 times. My truck is a 2016 and I have never had any issues with it before.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Easy install and usability. Poor fuel economy. I bought this mostly for the Economy mode. I drive a lot and was hoping for .5 to 1.0 mpg on the highway. Instead i got a decrease of 2 mpg. I actually get the best highway economy (still only 15.2mpg) in performance mode. It seems the only thing this is good for is to burn your tires in performance mode. And that only seems the throttle is remapped so that 1% throttle pedal is 90% throttle request. Actually makes it hard to drive when 1/4 inch pedal travel spins the tires. Even in stock mode fuel economy is about 2mpg lower. Very dissatisfied and disappointed with my purchase. It gets 2 stars because 1: the ease of controlling the modes on the fly via steering wheel controls is the only way to go! And 2: performance mode does work. I have driven nearly 2k miles with this installed and checked mileage via odometer. Not just going by the cluster display (which are within .3mpg)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding!! Before purchase, I read several reviews and did online research. Some reviews were good and some bad, but I decided to try The Pulsar anyway. I have had it on my truck for a month and I have had no issues what so ever and it does exactly what I thought it would. The biggest surprise is my favorite mode of use is the Economy, once at highway speeds the truck performs better than stock under the same conditions ( it is lazier from a stand still, than stock, but I expected that) and have gotten over 25 mpg on WV. secondary roads (55 mph) I think this is a great product. But keep your expectations reasonable, your not going to break speed records, but you will enjoy your ride a lot more !

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great. After having this on my 2018 Ram for about a week now, I can say I thoroughly enjoy the kick in the pants that the performance mode gives the truck. It's a bit touchy to be used as an everyday option but it's fun to use when you need the extra "go". I keep it in tow mode for a middle ground between stock and performance. A lot more "drivability" there. I am however quite a bit disappointed in the MDS off modes. It doesn't actually turn it off. Instead it kicks it off as soon as it turns on, and continues to do so over and over and over. So, you are left with a constantly repeating surge cycle of on/off. This was my main reason for purchasing and I still have to manually put it into "8" on the gear selector to keep the MDS off. I know there's only so much a piggyback system can do and in the future I believe they will fix this with an update. Overall I am very impressed and if you want to squeeze a few extra ponies out of your Hemi, I say go for it.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible I bought it for 2016 ram Hemi then traded two weeks later and it won’t work on 2018! Caused trucks to go in limp mode and not crank in pouring rain . when it’s advertised to work in 2015 to 2018 ans causes these problems it a shame . If more is required then it should be clearly stated when purchased ! Screw this fake front that is sold

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product!!!!!! I bought the Pulsar for my 2018 RAM Sport. Not only is it a great product but it is also very easy to install and use! The throttle response in performance mode is incredible. It changes your stock RAM into a Performance BEAST within 30 minutes!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very impressed! I bought this item about a month ago, and install was a breeze. Instantly what stands out is throttle response and then once you drive it for a few days and play around with the performance mode you can really notice the power gain. If this product was $100 cheaper, and you had the option of erasing your speed governor I would have given this product 5 stars.
    Date published: 2019-04-05
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun to drive. There is no doubt that it changes the throttle responce and sensitivity on the Ram Hemi. In Performance it easily breaks the tires loose. I didn’t notice a gas mileage improvement at 70mph between stock, and economy and performance mode. They all faired about 17mpg. I also have 22” rims so that could swing it a bit. Over all, not bad.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Programmer This programmer is amazing and I would buy it again and again! Purchased about a month ago and I love the ease of use and the Econ (23 mpg) and Tow (pass everything but a gas station) modes. The Performance mode leaves a little to be desired: I've only run 93 since I purchased the truck and I have a CA intake and cat back exhaust. If you floor the right pedal, it bogs down the engine, but if you stay around 3/4 foot travel she'll definitely move. Definitely going to be getting a custom tune when that option is available!
    Date published: 2018-10-23
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use I haven't got to drive the truck much more than a hundred miles or I might have given five stars. I do like the ease of changing the settings on the fly but haven't had enough time to make a decision on the performance or mileage gains. I am not going to make a claim that I can't verify yet.
    Date published: 2018-06-23
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! Just as advertised! I’ve had this one for about a month now, it’s just as advertised. I’ve had no issues with it. Great power and is everything I was looking for. If the custom tuning options do come then it’ll be the perfect tuner IMO

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy install, full power Quick and easy to install in my 17 ram rebel. Stock wiring was stiff but doable. Up 5 mpg in economy, rows better, and performance mode sets your gas pedal to super sensitive, and gives you all the power I ever wanted

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes a difference The system works very well with my tuck, I really like the shift on the fly to change settings. Made a biff difference on towing and in ECO mode my MPG went from 17.5 to 19.5

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Releases the fun in driving your Ram! This product made my Ram 1500 drive like a beast. The throttle response on Performance mode is amazing, completely changes the personality of the truck. My favorite part is how it integrates seamlessly into the truck's computer system allowing you to change driving performance profiles at the push of a button and the in dash display like modern sports vehicles. Installation is especially easy. Best part is you can deactivate MDS! Wish I would have found this earlier!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improved gas mileage and fun features. I was getting 12.4 mpg highway in my 2015 5.7 Ram w 8 speed trans and 34 inch tires. I now average 14.6 running in economy mode. That doesn’t seem like much but it’s about a 15% improvement which is much more than I expected. I still think the price should come down because it lacks features that other tuners have at around the same price range. But the performance mode is fun and it was nice to be able to program my tire size to fix my speedometer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It’s the real deal! The Pulsar was the last of three upgrades on my 2017 Ram 1500 Limited. Started with AFE Momentous CAI. Followed up with Borla Touring Exhaust. After installing the Pulsar, I concluded my stock PCM was having difficulty adjusting to the mods. Although my MPG increased buy 2 MPGs, the performance was sluggish. After installing the Pulsar everything came together. The Performance with MDS off really wakes up the HEMI. It is extremely responsive and quick of the start. The gear change is perfectly timed resulting in much better performance. Definitely a different vehicle in this mode. The economy mode with MDS off is also great for cruising around town. After one day, I’ve gain an additional 1 MPG. Even in this mode, the Hemi is more responsive with very smooth gear changes, but calls the horses if you punch it. Loving the Pulsar and my Hemi Truck!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Modification Ever Done to my Ram 1500 I was very skeptical about adding this to my truck, especially because my dad was borrowing it the next day to pick up his new camper that was 700 miles away in Ohio, but I figured it’d help him with towing through the mountains of Pennsylvania. 2 hours into his ride out to get the camper he called me saying how awesome the power was, keep in mind he was still in New York, and he wasn’t even towing anything yet! He said at 70 mph he could just tap the gas and the truck would pull like a sports car, and he was only in Tow tune with MDS off! Now that I’ve been driving it, I am blown away at the performance of the Pulsar! I usually drive in Tow Mode MDS off, but I also use Eco MDS off, and Stock MDS off quite a bit! I’ve thrown it in Performance MDS off a few times on 91 octane, but I usually save that for long straightaways! Best money I’ve spent on my truck!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for ease of options I own a dodge magnum and use the trinity tuner from diablo sport. Rather than buying an unlock pcm and tuner I went with the pulsar on my 2017 ram 1500. It's really easy to install and use. Please advice from avid tuning lerson... this is a basic tune option. If you want custom or 3rd party tuning do the unlocked pcm and trinity tuner. Overall This is a great option to have some get up in a stock truck. I'm happy with it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Edge pulsar I bought the pulsar with the intent to get better fuel mileage and a little boost in power for my 2016 ram 1500 and it does just that. I'm able to switch from economy mode to performance within seconds while driving when I want a little more power. Great product, nice packaging, arrived fairly quick. I recomend the edge pulsar to anyone that wants a little extra out of there truck for a good price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from MAKE THIS YOUR FIRST UPGRADE PURCHASE!!! WIfe and absolutely love this mod! The fact you can change "tunes" from the steering wheel controls is amazing! Icy out, change from performance to economy and throttle response is toned down making it easier to drive. Cant say enough good things about this unit! Cant wait for true performance tunes are offered to accommodate the CAI and CAT back exhaust already done to her 2017.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Instant increase HP and Torque at the rear wheels. Plug and play at its simplest. Combined with K&N Cold Air Intake on my 5.7 Hemi Ram. Smoked a 5.0 Mustang, Camaro and a Range Rover Forget thenew heads, Cam, etc. For less than $1,000 and under 1hr, I have a daily driver that will boil the tires with traction control disengaged.

    We haven't tested with that module, but in theory, it should work normally.

    Will this work on a 2018 bighorn. Read some bad reviews and good. Just going on a long trip with camper and want no issues 

    Asked by: Bos23
    On the 15-18 models, we've made a lot of improvements that really limit the chance of any issue. We did have some issues that would surface after a few months of use on certain vehicles, which is very tough to replicate in our testing. However, they were much more prevalent on 2019 models. You should be good to go on your 2018.

    Any idea why I'm getting surging with steady pedal in any of the first 6 modes? Surging went away after removing pulsar. Stays in same gear but RPM jumps in a very consistent pattern, returns to 'normal' then repeats. Really obvious at 35 and 45mph.

    Asked by: stvnhrmn
    It is possible there is a fault in the Pulsar board itself. Please give our tech support a call at 866-404-6141.
