Yes Kris you are 100% right and always are. Could you please tell us what the warranty cost is and what those $$ are that are covered under that warranty, I would bet they won't even cover the cost of the SC kit. Also could you post up a copy of the warranty contract. There is always something about the fine print.

If you are looking for any type of driveline warranty I would wait and see what Mopar comes out with for warranty on their kit. I think the vast majority know if you want to play you have to pay and warranty isn't a part of that. Of course we could have a bunch of warranty claims and have a new locked ECU!

How about a beefier clutch? I wonder if that is almost necessary

Negative, can't hurt, but not required to run 8 psi on stock motor.

I was told the same, that a clutch that could handle more power is not necessary, having said that, when I do have to end up replacing my clutch I'll likely upgrade it.....

I'm not going to say the clutch is fine but when they ran mine on the dyno they gave it a pretty good test as when he started the run in forth gear it would pull the motor down pretty hard and I have done quite a few of the 3rd gear lug and go test to check WOT AFR with no slippage.

Just posted that my kit was making ~8 PSI at 5700 and the boost-a-pump was maxed out at that point so that was probably why I went lean at 6K.

RoomRaider you may want to ask Arrington for the updated tune and then head to the dyno again. Dave said he has added 30HP to that tune.

This boost thing is FUN!

Yeah, heard a little about that, I'm sure there's a bunch of 392 owners that are happy campers with an unexpected 30 hp. thanks to Dave. My motor's comin out in a few weeks & I won't have it up & running before spring & I'll need an entirely different tune all together by then.
