14' Whipple supercharged SRT by AMP

Hey guys I wanted to share the details of my build. The complete set was put together by Scott at Afterhours Mopar Performance. These are the specs,

2.9 Whipple tuner kit
Mahle forged 2618 Pistons
17%OD balancer
Bosch 72lb/hour 750cc Injectors
Walbro fuel pump

We were able to obtain 604rwhp and 564 lb/ft at 9.5 psi. The kit and my set up are capable of a lot more power but I'm choosing to keep it at this level until someone comes up with a way of strengthening the 8 speed.

I can honestly tell you that the Whipple completely transformed the way my truck accelerates it is just a beast!!. It has an immense amount of power readily available at the touch of the pedal. Also, I can feel a huge amount of torque at around 2500 Rpms.

I haven't done any 0-60 pulls because it has been raining but I'll post times soon.

Follow the link for pictures/videos of the process and end results.

Looks good man, I saw your Jeep in the AMP section on the LX boards. Congrats! Heard nothing but great things about the guys there! I also going to assume that Johan did your tuning (people will ask you about this so should be addressed early on). Should also be worth mentioning if you are planning on taking to the track or not.

Re: 14' Whipple supercharged SRT by AMP

Thanks man!!, yes tuning was done by Johan and Brian who worked together on this build. AMP is a great company, Scott and Jon there really know what they are doing and they provide excellent customer service. I can only say good thing about them, they truly are the Mopar experts!! I'm planing to take it to the track next week so I'll post times then.

Re: 14' Whipple supercharged SRT by AMP

Update, I have had a few issues with the tune. Truck wouldn't shift properly at high rpm. The fastest 0-60 so far has been 3.6 at around 80 degrees (about a month ago). I Dropped off the truck this morning at AMP for an oil change and a tune update. Will post updated times in the near future.

No upgrades to the tranny as of yet. I wish someone would come up with some type of upgrade so I can up the boost a bit

Re: 14' Whipple supercharged SRT by AMP

Hey Chad, I'm still having the same issues with the trans not wanting to shift at high rpm's. The new tune didn't do much, if anything it made it worse, the truck is puling slower 0-60 times. I noticed the shifts come in at lower rpm's than before, my best time with the new tune has been 3.9 seconds.
I got to contact the AMP guys for a new tune, they told me that this is going to be trial and error which is the same that happened with the previous WK2 Nag1's that wouldn't shift fast enough because of all the torque that the SC generates.

Will definitely keep you all posted..
