I'm a firm believer that you are best-off keeping your rear resonators intact on the auto. I have topic(s) on how you can explore a sensible middleground between resonators vs no resonators, but...

Maybe it essentially is the 6.4 L Hemi...just that, when you introduce forced-induction, it usually helps to back off compression ratio a bit. So a simple way to do that is to reduce the stroke? ...

Where's the guy that was on his 2nd (or 3rd?) chain repair? If that guy gets this recall repair and can still lose his chain, that will be the true test for the new parts...

So if you take out the typical amount of hp and torque that just the tune introduces, that means the upgraded part(s) had even less effect than you expected. Possibly, it isn't really that the tune...

I actually bought some of those...then I realized, I'm gonna put 40 of those thingies on??? I might die before I got through it all.

I think it is a good idea, but crippled by a pretty big caveat.

I agree with the sentiments so far...if you are going auto against his manual, you stand a very good chance of winning. Maybe run your rear tires a bit on the low side (30 psi) and make sure you...

The Viper version does have taller gear ratios...so maybe that has some impact on effective torque capability? If the down-wind side of the transmission is able to sustain x amount of torque (also...

Ok, I guess you are in pretty good shape, then! What was the rear camber on your last alignment sheet? I would still be curious about where SRT8's sit.
