Re: Apexi super voltage stabilizer 5.7

Thanks for the added post; You are the only one so far that has tried one while everyone else argues that it doesnt work ...lol Until you install one, the noticable smoothness and quietness of the Hemi along with improved throttle response and trans shift response can't be appreciated. I see about 1.5 mpg HWY improvement

1. Drives and shifts smoother through the gears.

2. The mds stays on-off for longer periods and the transition is smoother

3. It stays in top and overdrive for longer periods, before the slightest and i mean slightest change of incline, throttle position would make it change. to the point of being so annoying i would leave it in forth

4, increased mpg.

Off the 1st three there is absolutely no doubt. The only way i can describe the change in smoothness is a bit like the difference between iridium plugs with 40k km on them and brand new recommended plugs.

The only one im slightly sceptical about is the mpg. The 2 mpg improvement on this trip i got being all attributed to the gadget is doubtful. Most off that i believe is down to the fact its warming up here, i didn't have the heater cranked, wipers on and rear demist on all the time. Some maybe but not all.

lm happy.

Did you do the grounding Mod as well or just install the stabilizer ?

Stabilizer and grounding mod, this kit came with 5 extra grounding straps.

1, From battery to frame
2, From battery to engine block
3, From battery to gearbox
4, From battery to throttle body (yes im aware of how its mounted)

PS. lts ''lmitation''

In the FAQ section of the link you posted it says it works on all gasoline engines.

Re: Apexi super voltage stabilizer 5.7

Ok , here we go . So after talking to anyoldIron ( thanks for the info) ,I picked up this kit . It does come with the grounding straps as well .



Here is my goal , I am going to hook up my plexi Kiwi and Torque app . THis is the same way I logged my travels for Ryan when Tuning my 5.7 and Try to log before and after runs. He has agreed to analyze the results

I will try to do the same distance, on the same roads for both trips. To see if there is any difference . I will also try to film door unlock and lock , headlight brightness . I will also try to get a good reading on Mpg

Anyoldiron , Have you noticed a increase in MPG in yours?

Re: Apexi super voltage stabilizer 5.7

Hard to say, as when i fitted it the roads where covered with snow and slush which causes a drop due i guess to tire drag and use off electrical components.

l didnt have the jeep in normal weather last year so its hard to tell.i think im getting about 1.0 mpg
