Thumbs up First 2012 SRT Charger with B&G tune

So Steve says I'm the first 2012 SRT Charger with the B&G mail order tune... Cool! Like many have reported on their 392 Challengers... install is a piece of cake. Little different location for the Charger. The ECU is beneath a molding cover... Pop off some plastic rivets and there it is. Swaps in 5 minutes.

The beast started right up using my remote start. Initially drove around the neighborhood and quickly noticed i had no tq mgmt... Throttle response was beautiful after driving it some! I have a ported throttle body so initially it didn't feel as snappy as one would expect. I had the same delay experience with the stock ECU. Took some miles to learn it. After adding some miles to it whoa! Thing runs like a raped ape!!! Such a different animal.

I'm not one of those guys that is easily convinced with gains using bolt-ons and such... Over the years I've tried different bolt-ons and the gains were always marginal, even when it was tuned for it. But I'll tell you what. Even though the B&G tune will not beat a cam/head tuned combo experience in power, this thing is the real deal for someone that just wants to experience a little bit more power and more elegant power distrubition throughtout the power band. I read Braztangs experience with the B&G tune and was a bit concerned I too would feel the dreaded dead spot when shifting from 2nd to 3rd like i did in my previous HEMI cars. Well, all i can say is my concern of that has all but disappeared. If Braztang is reading this, I'm wondering if you are getting on it or driving it like a grandma would cuz I'm not feeling what you've experienced.

Anyways, just wanted to let you all know that the first mail order 2012 Charger SRT8 is alive and well and rander is satisified. Can't wait for the cooler months ahead!

Congrats on being the first Charger SRT8 392 with Plug-n-Play ECU

Glad to hear you like it. The difference is when the pedal is on the floor! If you can't find the floor then pass on this product. If you readily find the floor get in-line and get a bigger kick in your shorts!

Look to see a first on remote tuned 5.7's within the next few days. SRT LLC and BG are fine tuning all 2011 and 2012 Hemis!

More packages coming. First was the mighty SCAT PACK for $1495 which gets you a fully tuned new ECU and total package Hop Not to your door step. A must for 6M owners!

Next up will be the Power Pack which will include headers, catless mids, and exhaust with a finer tuned B&G ECU. This tune will be specific to a single header and exhaust manufacturer. Upgrades will be made available for existing customers.

Just did some morning driving. I may be going out on a limb here since there are folks that would like to see RB fail, but this is the way Chrysler should have tuned their cars from the factory. Great drivability and the exhibition of power is awesome! Almost forgot you can rev this bad boy in park without cutting off above 3500 RPM's for a chance on an auto.

For a canned tune i'm not disappointed at all! Kudos to Steve and Dave for making this a reality. Until tuning is available to the masses this is not a bad deal they have going. I see that Steve is working on more packages, which is great!

I agree with you 100%! This woke up the beast! I wish Dave and Steve the best of luck in further development, as it appears that is their intent. I am more than pleasantly surprised with outcome - a great tune to hold us over for the next.....whatever that may be....supercharging, enhanced tune from B & G or ???? This is a great product....a lot of fun! Like Steve mentioned in a previous post, find the floor with the pedal to fully enjoy the product!
