anyone have a list going of things they want to do to their new TH?

I'm wondering if aftermarket parts for HC's will bolt-on to the TH, and what would even be worth it. (for power or handling)

just got the truck today and it is awesome but after doing a few things to my old SRT, I have the itch.

Main issue is ECU has extra security for 2018. So until the ECU and TCM are hacked there isnt much point doing anything IMO.

Look at tyres.. 315 or 305 drag radials might help get to a sub 3 sec 0-60 and maybe 10 sec quarter.

The extra security has already been bypassed by the folks that brought you the Tazer...

FYI for me I thought I would really want to de-badge it, but now I'm second guessing myself... now that i see it in real life rather than pics, i don't mind them that much. We'll see.

mind saying a few words about why this: "Remove helmholtz resonator..." ?

It quiets the exhaust a bit, so removing it will make it louder. Here’s an article that discusses it...

The helmholtz resonator can also "tune" the exhaust to have a specific tone, so removing it could change the sound.

When do you think you will have the ability to do e-tunes? I will be doing a flex fuel setup, but it can be tricky getting dialed in at elevation and I have no time/interest in constantly reshipping a pcm back and forth. I realize the pcm may need to go to you once for initial unlocking but want to keep it in the car thereafter. thank you

Are you talking about a dedicated E85 tune or flex fuel tune? If it is dedicated E85 we can do that now we are working on the flex fuel tune to do remotely.

like the ability to flex fuel. was thinking of following package: upper and lower pulley, id 1300 injectors, t-stat, plugs, green belt, flex fuel tuning, some sort of intake or maybe modify existing/use a modified demon air grabber. in tank boost a pump or dual pumps if required for e85. would your handheld tuner allow for logging and retuning or would we need to get HP tuners or other pc based software?

The Trackhawks already have dual in tank fuel pumps. May be able to fit to Walbro 465's in it. Dunno. Never looked at the TH fuel hat.

You have a great recipe there for big horsepower. Our handheld device as of now will not support this vehicle but we are diligently working on a product to make tuning these much easier for all parties involved. B woody and Leg Maker are both offering cold air intakes for these and the stock air box is making good horsepower on the TrackHawks we have done so far. As for the fuel system they already have dual intake pumps and so far they are rock solid. We have a TrackHawk on the dyno as I type on E85 getting tuned.
