I've had one installed on my 3.8 for over a year. I picked it up for $128 to test with it. Short answer is don't waste your time.

When I installed it I saw a slight increase in throttle response but I chauk that up to having 30k miles on my stock throttle body and it being dirty. I feel like I wouldv'e gotten the same result if I had cleaned my stock TB. The Viper TB doesn't seem to play well with tuners, especially the SuperChips tuner. The only good thing I can say about it is that it is cheaper than the stock TB so I got a spare for about half price. It does run fine with a stock tune, which is how I've been running mine for the last year. Guess I should note here that I run a manial trans. The reason I point that out is because I suspect that with an auto it may not run as well.
