Hey Luke, I installed your Magnuson SC on my 2015 MT 5.7. Im running the base tune and pulley. What do I need to go up to 8lbs of boost? I don't have any reliable tuners around here. Is there a remote tuner who you suggest?this has been beaten to death, the 6.4 and 5.7 was not designed for boost so trying to hold the manufacturer responsible for engine failures with boost is ridiculous.......
if you do not want you warranty repair denied, DO NOT MODIFY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
the 5.7 is significantly more robust then the 6.4 and will live well with 8 psi of boost
5.7L 2011 and newer will do very well on 8 psi with good fuel system and tuning,
with good long tubes, not all headers or mids are created equal, if your going thru the expense of adding long tube headers, do good ones, Kooks!!!!
with 8 psi. Kooks long tubes and green catted high flow cats 500whps and 500+ ft/lbs
we have done this repeatedly
6.4L 2011 and newer will live on 6 psi, but requires good tuning, with great tuning and good fuel system, 7 psi which will deliver approx 550whps, with good long tubes and 7 psi approx 580/590whps
anything above that it will go boom
I would bet I can count the number of good Hemi tuners on one hand.......the pcm and software in the FCA vehicles is very very different then GM or Ford,
because the local tune shop does well with those does not mean they can tune a Mopar, and in many case will blow them up
at least once a week someone will reach out to us with a failure, and lately we have fixed a number of them.....few weeks ago a person reached out to us from SC, the tune shop blew up their engine on the dyno, 2019 R/T 5.7
it was all I could do not to laugh when they were telling me that they were assure they could run 10.5 lbs of boost on a completely stock 5.7, to make it worst the shop blame the engine having a prior issue and was recommending he seek help from Dodge, less then a few k's miles on the car
few days ago a prior customer with na engine with cam and headers who had a well known tuner tune his vehicle told me about his broken engine, the remote tuning was inadequate and he suffered multiple piston failures, extreme lean issue and knock, tuner refuse any responsibility
if an engine suffers a failure a year from now, the chance the tuner did a poor tune is unlikely, but when it fails within a few weeks or worst on the dyno, unlikely it was a mechanical failure
the moment you begin to modify and change the horsepower level of any engines or vehicles, longevity will be affected, if the mods are done well, with good parts and professional install and tuning, the risk will be low
I tell customers all the time, you dont have to have a blower to break stuff, the person between the seat and steering wheel can affect the outcome dramatically ( been politically correct here, many idiots behind the wheels )
250 RWHP gain with 8lbs of boost and some other mods?! Now I want to know what was done?He stated in another thread that with his SC and all his mods, that's where he stands now, that's why I asked
I thought it was the ultimate sleeper until I saw an SRT8 owner checking out the inner cooler. When he saw me, he said "Whatcha got going on under the hood?" Busted! Hahaha I would've trolled him saying that it helps make the blow off whistle in my exhaust sound better 😈www.challengertalk.com
A Guy,I know it may not be exact, but what was your total outlay to get to 500 RWH? And does that include labor, or did you do some/all of that yourself?
