Nice work man! Headers are next for me. I do all my own work and not too sure I want to tackle that. LMAO
It's a pain, but a lot cheaper than sending it out. Having the right tools is half the battle.

Front wide bands didn't need an ext, but it could use at least a 6" ext. to keep tension off wires.

"I ordered ext."

Installed OEM 6 rib and smooth idlers, changed thermostat .

Fired right up for good leak check, up to temps, topped off SC and eng coolant.

Ran for good start and idle log, then drive home for road log.

Sent them off to Dusterhoff

My 300 is fast and fun, but I missed driving this.

Is it a 8 or
Wheel Tire Car Vehicle Sky

900hp package??

First run 4th 1500 to 4000.

Starting at 1900 RPM knock counts up to -7 knock max at 2753 RPM, then counts down to -1.8 at 4130 RPM
MAP @ 218kpa (17psi)? WB EQ Ratio .81 IAT 124

Think knock is coming from headers vibrating off floor. Left CAT is extremely close to heat shield, may be making contact when eng torques. Also hear some vibration off floor at idle.


He wants me to try another gas station for fuel and make another run. Thinking I could put some Boostane PRO in to see if it's false or fuel related.

My attempt at stripe. Was told it's not the right material, but I had it and stopped at front, because, it was the wrong material for the job. Looks good from far, but far from good.

A friend is getting the right material and I'll do it over, front to back.

First log out of the way. GOD I love the way trans shifts now, that alone was worth the price of admission.

Curt's Trans tune makes the whole driving experience better, especially under full throttle.

So far so good?
Where are you getting your E from?
Are you going to do a dedicated E race tune? I've always been curious to see how much more timing is in the E race tune over the flex?

Right now he has me on pump 93, started over from 93 tune to flex. Will be getting E from a station I use for my 300 E85 tune, pretty consistent 80%.

Maybe a straight E tune later if it really matters that much.

Not sure about the timing stuff, Flex vs dedicated E85

That I agree with.

Was asking about that on the Hellcat forum about how and where they tapped off the factory system and all I got was: "you don't need one, you'll tell by the AFR where it's at". I like to see in real time like my car, so if you have a system that works let me know.

I have the Fore system so we just tapped into the fuel line. Seems like a no brainer to me to add some cheap insurance.

I agree. No guessing.
