Re: Hot Rod Magazine 5.7L Hemi Turbo Setup

RDP Motorsports. BadKarma is there getting built. The tune was fine, just turning off the TM i think was the problem. It felt great just didnt last long. I think Denny at Sharadon has said turning off TM has always resulted in bad things. That or the tranny was just bad to begin with. I dont fault RDP for it, they gave me a pretty good deal on installing tranny #4. I also had some aftermarket torque converter and the transgo shift kit installed, so who knows what really caused the problem. Right now im running a completely stock junkyard tranny and torque converter and it's held up for the last few months.

Re: Hot Rod Magazine 5.7L Hemi Turbo Setup

I ran my stock tranny for over 2 1/2 years running over 500 crank HP with the turbo running up to 9 psi. The only change was a Sharadon Stage valve body, and not turning off TM. Follow Shardon's advice on the 545RFE, they know that tranny.

In regards to using a Challenger computer/tranny, not going to work, there are too many fundamental differences, and you can't mix in a computer module and/or program for different vin series (vehicle).
