JohnnyG8,

Carl does not dyno tune, he just street tunes. You can request it but it will cost more. I would actually just contact Carl @ http://www.cjtunes.com/ and see what he says... I havnt had Carl tune my car in a long time so maybe he's changed what he does...

Johnny, what Brent said above is true as far as I know....he street tunes. If you want a Dyno tune, you can ask him to join you at a Dyno, but I am guessing that will cost a few bucks more.

Thread #4, lets see how fast we can get to #5

Dyno is how much power your car is making, that doesnt do any good if you cant use the power on the street.

Street tune takes about a week, the shop will hook up a WB in your exhasut to monitor AFR and get that dialed in, they then data log the car for hours and will make adjustments to the trans tune and engine tune for making the most power on the street as possible.

I myself went out and bought the HPTuners program so I could adjust anything without going to a tuner each time... I then found that it was alot to learn and got Rick Crawford to tune my car which I'm very happy with. Nice thing about Rick as well as Carl as that they both use HPTuners so Rick can sent me a new tune and I just copy over the changes and click "SAve As" and BAM... a New TUne to flash! YOu can find HPTuner units used pretty cheap. $250 or so for the basic unit.

Thats awesome. I feel like that is a much better judge than a dyno. I don't need to increase my ego any with my car's numbers..I just want it to be an animal around the city! lol

Next question..is there somewhere I can go online to buy everything I would need for a cam swap? For example, I am probably going to buy a cam through Rick (DoD delete) but then I still need everything else that goes along with it lol.

superchargerconnection.commm and paceperformance. I got mine from enginepowersystems.commm, but I ordered my cam through them as well so it was a package deal. Next cam I get will be a Rick Crawford spec though.

I will have to check them out to see what they come with. Maybe Rick can suggest a place as well where to buy from.

I got all the DOD delete stuff from Greg @ Pace. I have the full list still, if you want it.

I too, like Brent, got he Cam/Springs from EPS.

If you don't want them, I might pick them up and put some cheapo summer tires on them for the Durango in the Summer so I don't have to wear the Cooper A/T down.

Those with Cooper Tires = $600. Then sell your 15" for a hundo or so to recoup.

Cheaper than getting 15" tires .

I would love that if you could send me everything I would need!

Yeah I'll see what Rick suggests for me to do. Right now he is leaning towards Lunati 219/232 .625/.599 111+0 LSA ... But seeing how I have zero knowledge about cams and what those numbers mean (lol ) I figure I will trust him!

Make sure what ever he recommends is somewhat easy to tune depending on who you actually go to for tuning.

Do you think Carl will be able to tune most everything? If I don't go with a cam package for either VMS or Livernois I'll be getting a custom tune for sure.
