    No it doesn’t. It only supports 03-08.
    My truck was 318 TB originally, then I Turbo swapped it and now it’s hemi. Easy swap but not the easiest.

      Update: found some interesting data with the MSD today. From the factory they have idle timing control enabled. If using a carb, turn this to off. I couldn’t get this junk to idle smooth and was always 10.5 afr. Set this to off and timing is rock steady and afr is up 1 full point. Also be sure to check the map sensor timing if your using the map sensor. Mine was low due to low manifold vacuum because of intake design. Working on a turtle for the intake now.

          Another piece of the ever evolving puzzle came today. Gathering a few more parts and waiting on a nice weekend to install. I will be selling the carb, intake and MSD with harness when I install this.

              Update: nothing to report. 1700 miles on it. Got the carb tuning almost perfect. Cranks easily, 4 barrel comes in good, 13.0-14.0 afr at cruise This is why the wideband is a must. Gave it a wash after it’s chores where done.

                So far is pretty good. Only real thing I changed was the carb to a vacuum secondary. Night and day from the 800dp that I had previously. The plate was removed as it’s no longer needed. Currently working on stock ecm wiring harness while I’m off work for a couple of days during the week.

                    Yep, washed it twice and yet it still has mud under it. Would make a good hunting ride.
