Never said I didn't drive fast gentlemen! But there's different styles of fast driving and my is not drag. I am absolutely hooked on off throttle massive torque that lets me just pour on the power going out of a turn, or when merging, or at Limerock with its many bends. And yes, you can all mock me now but I use my R/T in both local Solo II slalom and at Limerock track days.

Why the 392? I'm not a fan of supercharger whine nor adding FI to a motor that is not built for it. I'd love to do a turbo but again, I'd want a motor built for it first. So after research, here sat a brand new crate motor 2012 392 for a Challenger with warranty at a price that made it competitive with all other power options. My entire exhaust and headers were a carry over as was my intake manifold with the 392 injectors instead. Forged crank, piston oil squirters, big valve head, no MDS, water cooled oil and all of it able to be controlled by my stock ECU with some magic from Sean. But if you really want to know why, come on by and take her for a spin. I promise you she does not just sit in the garage!

So I just installed my 93 Octane Hemifever tune. I have only drove about 20 miles. The engine feels like there is more there opposed to the WL Tune. I also noticed that I no longer get the really hard shift at lower speeds, but it hits just as good whn I'm getting on it. I have to do some data logging this weekend so Sean can do some tweaking for me!! So far I'm impressed.

No because his tune may have damaged your transmission [or may not have], but because he completely ignored your communication efforts after the fact when all you were after was simply an explaination or some sorts.

That simple ignorance on his behalf taints his reputation and his product.... as it righfully should! It only takes one time to one person, IMHO.....

If you're going to put your name behind a product, any product, then your reputation also shadows the very same product. If you can't back either, then you and your product ain't worth a squirt of monkey's piss with me.

That's just plain chicken shit!

We all screw up in some form or fashion; just be a man and stand up to your mistakes.

Thanks for posting.

Grub out.
Love it man great post and i agree we all screw up just admit it then try to figure out what happened so you dont do it to others

I guess we have a WL fan boy defending his man......

You really think I told him to push the limits of my trans to the brink, get real. He was obviously experimenting with me but he didn't know the limits. That's what separates a good tuner for one that just does it in his spare time.....Sean (full time tuner) Dave (part time tuner).

I highly doubt Dodgert was asking for anything aggressive since he was just now trying to get his Hemi fast. Me on the other hand I was looking for more and trying to get my crew cab deep in the 13s all motor/ 12s on nitrous but went to the wrong place to get it. I should have stuck with Sean as it was big mistake looking back at it and I shouldn't have never responded back to Dave last Dec/Jan when he first contacted me.

What's done has been done and IMO 13s/12s isn't all that fast lol. Especially when running low 12s with just a tune / off road h-pipe in the stang.....soon to bypass the 11s and go straight into the 10s.

I enjoy reading much of your contributions here and you're a respected member IMO, HOWEVER that's just an absurd remark.

I'm thinking it was a tongue-in-cheek remark.....
