Default new from NJ

Hey, new 2013 big horn here, love trucks and finally got a good deal from stealership that I couldn't resist. I'm coming from 2 generations of modifying WRX's, so I plan to do the same with my new girl too. Forgot what it was like to be completely new to an engine tho going from a turboed H4 to a 5.7l hemi has me reading all day long haha. (although the mpg is about the same..)

now, WRX used "accessport" to tune and it had OTS maps or bring to a tuner who could use it as an opensource. Is there a similar tuner for this spectrum?

I'm also use to hearing the phrases "turbo back" (is it now block back? hahah) and "cat back" and i've looked under her belly and see there is opportunity for true duels. Is this a common step? or is true duels not worth it?

cliffs:
1: sup
2: coming from tuning a WRX to RAM
3: what tuner do rams like best?
4: are true duels the common route?

here is the beast! (already plasti dipped the fake chrome covers on the rims, temp until I get my lift and wheels figured out)

Welcome to the forum! What part of jersey you from?

What did you have done to your wrx's? A buddy of mine had a highly modified wrx so I'm a little familiar with them.

You can run true duals but you'll either want to h pipe it or y pipe it into a si/do muffler and then run duals from there. (I'm running duals on mine but not like that lol)

Anyways, nice having another jersey member on the forum!

Shawn, thanks!

Gecko- I just let the car breathe. Intake and exhaust, accessport with a pretty aggressive tune, intake was mostly so I could hear turbo spool, heh. I had some other odds and ends on there but nothing crazy. This is a pic from winter of the wrx, in her glory!
Also, I'm in the Monmouth county area!



And thanks for the tip on the exhaust, much appreciated

Default Welcome to the Z. For hauling or towing heavy loads and for faster times off the line...

Welcome to the Z. Lots of great info and people here.

If you haul or tow heavy loads, we offer TotalLoadControl™ - the go-to solution for 4th Gen RAM - 9" Goodyear air bags that add over 5,000 pounds of lift (largest on any 1/2-ton truck). No one else can offer TLC because its patented. You'll have an air suspension for about 1/3 the price of the 2013 factory option (assuming you didn't get the factory suspension option).

TLC™ will keep your truck level with any load or tow and improve steering, handling, braking and ride and make it faster off the line by eliminating hesitation. (Of course, never exceed GVWR/GCWR!).

TLC's air bags work great in cold weather too (down to -55F).

We introduced TLC on the Z and have many satisfied Z customers.

Happy to answer any questions about TLC.

See you around the Z.

John
