And unfortunately. Well 1 of the sensors isn't working. I spoke with the seller and he's going to send me a replacement. I also learned with the rubber stems, they have to be broken to remove. So when sensors are swapped new stems are also needed. But the worst part of it is. I'm still not getting a reading for the left rear sensor. They are registered with the computer and all are reading according to the shops computer. They told me that maybe I'll need to drive 20 miles at atleast 20 mph. And if the problem remains. I'll need to take a trip to the dealer. As maybe it's a computer issue.

The removal/replacement of the rubber stem type is the same as the other, with one exception, instead of unbolting the nut from the metal stem, there's a small torx head screw that attaches the sensor to the base of the rubber stem in the tire cavity. It actually simplifies the process and makes it a littler cheaper when you need to replace them, and the stem itself can stay if it's still viable. The other benefit is the rubber stems aren't susceptible to corrosion or breaking if met with any shear force, which was my primary motivation for switching. As far as the drive time to reset goes, that's accurate. The shop computer may read them but the vehicles computer may not until it's driven. The sensors "wake up" at speed and send a signal every so often to the computer, until this happens your display may not show a pressure or even a sensor until it pings them. This can happen in a trip around the neighborhood @ 15 mph or it may take 10 miles on the highway. Just drive it a bit and monitor the activity, if done right it'll likely be ok.

Again bro, as i have said before the 3.7 is not a hemi and it's design by nature loves flow. The loss at low end was likely a shift of the powerband to a higher rpm. Also by design, the 3.7 will never be a torque monster down low. For us, the reso is a restriction in the intake track and must be removed...

Think about it like this if you had to breathe thru a straw vs breathing thru a bag. Which would be easier?

I don't want to disagree with you but the purpose of the reso is not o store air for later use. Its a muffler for the intake. That and a giant muffler are the reasons the stock wk is so quiet. There are slots inside the reso box that open into the body of the reso. These slots are not flat eighter. So they also create turbulence in the intake and this slows down the airflow...

Gotcha. I still have mine. I want as much weight in the rear as possible, cuz i hate how high it sits. But i doubt a spare will make much of a difference anyway.

About 80 pounds worth for the spare and hoist. With my sub and 2 amps mine came in at 4260. So it should be below 4200 without that stuff in
