I'm not a tuner but I am speaking of my real world results. And no I am not 100% it can be tuned to 91 and 89 is just foolish. High performance cars without a turbo dont even run 89 by manufacturer recommendation.
If you are looking for me to say that the factory pcm is capable of handling...
"very controlled" is a bit exaggerated, 10,000 miles on standard pump 93 as a daily driver. But your point is valid, 91 octane or less would not be ideal but as I stated, having knock sensors basically turned off in a provided tune is a recipe for disaster. Thats not rocket science.
Kevins tune from prodigy had the knock sensors desensitized, I know this as thats how the tune is provided by Prodigy. I have a custom tune done by a very experienced FCA tuner and the problems Kevin experienced are all solved. The factory knock sensors will retard timing when knock is...
Perhaps, a little help but not sure you've priced them lately. Its 11k plus all the oem parts for the 6.4 swap (20k total) and the hellcat is huge money. Trust me, I would have rather done that but it was just toooooooooooooooooo expensive.
Yes logging with the provided hp tuners software. It's a must
No doubt not for the average Joe in my opinion, I think the motor swaps are so pricey they aren't for the average Joe either.
None of this is smart lol.
The kit is 7.2 psi. I can honestly say a real tune goes a long way in making this kit safe and reliable. I have used and trashed both tunes the prodigy kit has/uses, not a good tune imo. I am confident that the tune I run is 2 of a kind, mine and one other. All issues are virtually gone but...
Hess Tuning out of Seattle. I am very embedded in the HEMI world and work with a bunch of tuners. My go to is usually Hemituner Performance or High Horse Performance but for the remote tuning I wanted to do, Mike Hess of Hess Tuning is the man!!!!
That's my real world...
Really happy with this setup, neat to say the least. More feedback soon.
Quick Time Performance Wrangler JL Screamer exhaust before and after. Not the best audio but you get the point. Watch the video.
I think we've gotten virtually all of my quirks cleaned up.
Pulse at 2000 rpm?
Anything you find beyond that? Most of mine was cleaned up with a total rescale of the injectors. We also are messing with cam position and believe it or not, controlling when the boost...
The tuning is the variable from what Ive seen. Each tuner is going to have their own level of experience and unless they have a bunch of jeep experience, its going to be a bit of a learning curve. And of course the JL is new so there are some quirks that will be new to tuners. The canned tune...
