We are putting an srt8 6.1 and driveline into a 2009 se challenger and a 70 cuda this week. We have all of the tcm and ecu electronics.
We are putting a new srt8 6.1 into a 68 charger tonight and we have all the electronics for that.

Of course I live less than 10 miles from Pick a part, summit racing, mr. gasket, accell, stainless works, corsa, mickey thompson, goodyear nascar research, bigshot dyno, pcm 4 less. And I have a garage out back with three lifts and two dyno jet dynomometers. And my local dodge jeep dealer lets me pilfer his spare tcm and ecu units whenever i want.

Otherwise.... we dyno tune the 3.7 ecu and bench flash them. nos it up and tune it. If you kill her then try the big transplant!
could you tune an 08 3.7? i have a ton of mods that i want a tune to fully take advantage of. as it stands now i can barely run with a stock 5.7 with my 3.7

Dead thread notwithstanding, I bet you'd put up some impressive 1/4 mile times if you put nitrous in your 6-er. Call me crazy. Lol
I'd love to put NOS in my 5.7, but as it's my daily driver, I don't want to risk breaking anything, esp the drivetrain. It's a quadradrive II setup, and I don't know how much power it can take. Does anyone know for sure?

Yeah, I'm a little leery of doing it, too. At this point, I'm just being a curious lad.
Even though my exhaust work is a week away, I'm already researching cams, trying to find a more aggressive one that won't require pulling off the head and re-vamping the valve train. Trying to save money and mod your engine is a delicate balancing act.
