Bruce WOW WOW WOW!! Impressive. Did Livernois finally fix you up or did you go elsewhere? Very nice job taking the Jeep SRT8 with such a mild tune ONLY.
Have you noticed any mileage penalties in your DD with that tune? Thanks bro.
No, Livernois kept promising but never did deliver. I really can't blame them. I was the only one who requested a tune for a Continental. It simply made no sense for them to go to the time, trouble and expense to develop a tune when the demand was nearly non-existent.
I have been working with a guy out of Pittsburgh who is an SCT dealer and specializes in tuning SHOs. (ajpturbopittsburgh <email@example.com) He also has an F150 with the 2.7 ecoboost that he tuned. I like working with him since he explains exactly what he is doing. The process is to hook the SCT device to the OBD port and record what the engine and transmission are doing. I then send the recording to him via email, he analyzes it, develops the appropriate tune and sends it to me to install. He likes making small changes so we have now done 5 or 6 revisions. He knows I do not want to go crazy with it even though there is a lot more potential.
Fuel economy is improved by about 1 to 1.5 MPG on the highway. This is primarily due to advanced ignition timing and optimizing the air/fuel ratio. Overall routine drivability is great. You can barely feel the transmission shift in normal driving but at heavy throttle, it shifts very quickly and firmly. Throttle response is very sharp. There are absolutely no negatives other than the requirement to run 93 octane fuel - which I always have done anyway.
