Dyno Testing and results on WK 5.7L

Going to do the following dyno tests, all on the same friggin day. Which means I'll being putting my 2014 GC back to stock for the following tests below.

Big thanks to:
1) Matt at Moe's Performance for the thermostat, tech advice and great customer service.

180 degree thermostat: Motorad 416-180 Thermostat | eBay

2) Enhanced Street Performance: For the Tech support, great customer service and use of dyno (hopefully at a reduce rate).

3) Billet Technology: Looks like a nice piece BUT I'm still waiting for my Catch Can to arrive at my front door.
Billet Technology Signature Series Catch Can For 2011 and up Jeep 5.7L, Jeep 6.4L and Durango 5.7L


Test 1: Baseline with stk. air box and panel filter w/93 octane gasoline.

Test 2: If anyone has an aftermarket panel filter they would like for me to test, I'll split the shipping cost with you. If not, I'll install my K&N CAI kit and test that.

Test 3: Test tunes from Diablosport with the addition of oil Catch Can and a 180 degree thermostat.
inTune i2 for Jeep Gasoline and Diesel Tuning Systems | Diablosport

Test 4: Test tunes from HemiFever with Catch Can and 180 degree thermostat.
Dodge, Jeep & Chrysler Tuning | Jeep Chip | Dodge Programmer & More | Diablo | SCT

Test 5: Install Moe's Performance 87mm Throttle body.

Test 6: Install 10 gallons of 100 or 103 unleaded gasoline to see if I can get rid of all engine knock and see if there is any power gain from it.

Test 7: Test the Pedal Commander on the dyno to see if 0-60 MPH times change with their device. Not 100% if I can do this or not.


If anyone has any ideas on other tests or comments feel free to ask.
Thanks for reading and hopefully I can get this catch can soon and get these tests completed.

See ya
Michael Plummer

Just need the Catch Can from Billet Technology but if you or anyone else have some pull over there please let me know, I'm waiting on them.

Thanks

Re: Dyno Testing and results on WK 5.7L

Why a Catch Can?
Because piston rings do not create a perfect seal. If they did the pistons would not be able to move up and down. Because there is a tiny gap between the cylinders walls and the pistons, a little bit of pressure is able to escape into the valve cover area and crankcase.

The OEM does a great job of meeting emission standards and removing the harmful contaminants, but the unintended consequences is oil is drawn into the intake charge which is bad if you plan on making the most power possible. For an engine to produce the maximum amount of energy in the combustion chamber you want air & fuel only. Any amount of oil in this A/F mixture will hamper the explosion resulting in less energy released, detonation, and carbon buildup. Trapping and removing this oil before it gets into the combustion chamber is the only solution I know of to maintaining the maximum efficiency inside your engine. A correctly designed and installed Oil Catch Can solves this problem.

In closing, here are the main problems you'll have if you don't install a properly designed and installed Catch Can.
• Reduced octane of the air/fuel mixture, which can cause detonation and the ECM (Engine Control Module) to retard timing, thereby reducing engine power.
• Excessive carbon build-up on valves, piston crowns, combustion chambers and spark plugs. This also increases the chance of detonation and power loss.
• Increased emissions & possible contamination of catalytic converters and oxygen sensors

I hope this helps
Michael Plummer

Re: Dyno Testing and results on WK 5.7L

Once you see the amount of oil the can catches between oil changes you'll wonder why they aren't standard from the factory.

Re: Dyno Testing and results on WK 5.7L

Ditching the muffler would be nice, a little time consuming though.

Not a bad idea and I'll ask the shop owner and see what he thinks. But I saw no gains on the dyno when I swapped to a Corsa cat-back exhaust system.

Re: Dyno Testing and results on WK 5.7L

Did you re-tune after the catback install or just tested with it on/off? I know that generally aftermarket catbacks are more about sound that anything else theses days though.

I'd imagine LT headers might actually make a difference.

Re: Dyno Testing and results on WK 5.7L

Sounds like a pretty good test plan!

What gear will you be testing in? 5th?
