2017 Daytona 392. Ray Barton forged 392, tvs2300, aluminum ds, to much to list
Thats a terrible feeling, stuck on the side of the road with a broke car.I had just pulled out from a store, onto a road that went from a 45 to 55 speed limit. Two lanes with occasional passing lanes. I was doing about 45 or so, coming up to one of those lanes, and ready to pass the car in front of me. I gave it maybe ⅓ to ½ throttle, when it lost power and started running very rough. I looked in the rear view and saw huge twin streams of smoke and/or steam trailing behind me. I can’t describe the sound because I don’t remember it. Nothing banging or knocking. I pulled it over to the side of the road, when the steam started pouring out from under the hood. This all happened in the span of 10 or 20 seconds. I shut it off, and knew that my goose was cooked.
An hour and a half later, it was on a tow truck.
Whoa. Glad it didn't damage anything!I jumped on a 1le Camaro getting on I-140 in Knoxville, got about 2 cars ahead of him and supercharger belt flies off. To the shoulder I went. Belt came off because of a defective idler pulley from magnuson, which they were quick to send a new one.
The shop is using HP Tuners, fwiw. They have worked on plenty of Mopars, including 5.7s. So I would hope they are aware of the tricks. But maybe not. Any suggestions, based on your experience?the stock 5.7 handles the boost fine, when tuned properly. I've made 700whp on the stock 5.7 with prochargers. There are things that need to be done, that not all tuners know to do, when it comes to boosted mopars. A shop that has minimal experience with that platform is not going to know the tricks.
Bigger motor will be fine. I have a BGE block in my 2014 AWD, if you mix and match the parts properly, it is plug n play.
Longtubes are louder, but ultimately your exhaust from the mid pipes back will determine the sound. Magnaflow on my car sounded like stock, I wanted it rowdy and went to an SLP. My SLP will alert the whole neighborhood and two adjacent ones.
Both HPtuners and Diablosport are capable of the same tuning for this situation.The shop is using HP Tuners, fwiw. They have worked on plenty of Mopars, including 5.7s. So I would hope they are aware of the tricks. But maybe not. Any suggestions, based on your experience?
