Re: Any new Updates heard for a WK2 Programmer - BullyDog, HyperTech, SuperChip

I have been wondering the same thing - intake, exhaust, and chip were to be the first things I did to my Jeep when I bought it - but now I am just sitting on the money and waiting. I am anxious to see what Superchips can do to the Hemi for this model series.

Hopefully something comes out before the CRDs come to the US and I decide to upgrade...

Ok, drove past Hennessey on I10 the other day from a meeting in San Antonio, good news and bad news. Hennessey should have something out in next 2 months but will replace the whole computer, not update the PCM. I was pretty stoked! Minus the 4k price tag that comes with it due to the major overhaul. If you want to do the full upgrade, chip, supercharger, exhaust, tranny, it will run around 16k. Egh!!!

Give them a call for more details. Hey! At least it's something to help this damn hemi actually run. Mercedes totally f'Ed Chrysler and us!

For 16k you have a faster jeep than the srt8 and you can actualy go off roading.

I like the idea.

Assuming you're the guy who doesn't get robbed by Hennessey, sure. But you could also be the guy that has his truck sit there for months being stripped of parts to make another truck, despite paying.

I'd read up on him and his antics before deciding to give the man any money. You could also just take a look at his "professional demeanor" in the thread too. And yes, that really was him.

Re: Any new Updates heard for a WK2 Programmer - BullyDog, HyperTech, SuperChip

MY 2012 has a mopar cat back exh and mopar intake. I,m going to wait for a pcm upgrade. then probably a larger throttle body want to keep it simple for now.
Does anyone know about parts interchange between the 5.7 & 6.4. Do the heads have lager ports and valves , camshaft lift and duration ect.

Re: Any new Updates heard for a WK2 Programmer - BullyDog, HyperTech, SuperChip

Responce I just got from Diablo:

"Thanks for the inquiry, but I'm afraid we do not support any 2011+ Chrysler vehicles at this time.* Chrysler has done everything they can to prevent us from being able to program their new vehicles, and there is no way to give an ETA for a future release."


I can safely say this is the first and last time I'll buy a 2011+ Chrysler product. If I were a Challenger, 300, or Jeep SRT8 owner I would be livid. Without after market support Chrysler performance vehicles are the SLOWEST and LEAST fuel efficient vehicles of the big 3. I should have stuck with Ford and got another F150.

That's not what I was hoping to read when I saw the first line

I'm equally pissed. I've owned every grand cherokee model made and this may be the last if this is the kind of stuff Chrysler is doing. Even Chrysler is selling performance mods for these that do very little if anything if you can't tune it. I'm guessing there's no way to lobby them and actually get anywhere right? Anyone want to buy a really nice 2011 WK2 Overland???
