A Pillar gauges and transmission would be next on the list after i get base components installed and running.


BlackRamHemi: found a post on dodge talk, makes me scared to install this kit without a tranny build. Seems if you get on it once your break the tranny! This is messed up, something that you found: dodgetalk_com/forums/showpost.php?p=4580945&postcount=172

After everything did you get the tranny stuff worked out? ( without me having to read all those pages)? Did ripp help out or did you do a fully custom tune?


I figured i could ride for few months on the stock tranny, but seems maybe not or depends how hard i hit it.

I'm 5 weeks in so far, have not installed my L&M Customs transmission yet,

Romp on it Daily, at least 4-5 WOT bursts every day without issue so far.

MGRAM-10 Has had his stock transmission behind his Ripp'd Hemi since early May.

Also has a built transmission from L&M Customs waiting to install,
Mike is just getting our tunes adjusted this week and they will both go in very soon.

Yup, Billet Technology is the one to get,

I think there price is only $115,

[QUOTE=BlackRamHemi;1191955]according to this genius,
I can just return my ride to stock,
replace my pcm and the dealer would never know I had a supercharger

Motor replaced for Free under Warranty !

[/sarcasm]

http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread....98#post1182298


Where do you get Superchargers from my post?
My point is that if your loading different tunes that according to threads I've read on this site, they can tell if you've had the computer reflashed and how many times. If you had a second PCM you could just reinstall the original PCM and would not show any signs of tampering that's all.
Never mentioned a blower in this post, was talking about tuning. What's
with the Genius comment? If I had known you had all the answers, we'd never need a forum, we could all just ask you directly.

Got my Ripp kit in this week, running a little rich right now but so far the thing launches like crazy! Been trying to play "take it easy" until I figure out a tranny solution, it's just too easy though.
