Re: Gauge pods for the WK2?

I'd do the A-pillar if there was one made that matches the SRT interior. Market is so small there won't ever be one though. The universal isn't going to match the texture...

Even the Innovate,...

Gauge pods for the WK2?

Any of you boosted guys running an AFR gauge? I keep mulling over getting one but can't figure out how/where to mount it.

I don't want to put a generic single add-on pod on the A-pillar because...

Re: My Livernois Whipple build

I won't say at this time as we didn't run full; no need to muddy waters with numbers that will be taken out of context. I'll post the true numbers once I get the updated tune and throw it back on...

Re: My Livernois Whipple build

I finally got some time to put it on a dyno this morning to validate the AFR under load - we were shooting for .75 and it was closer to .82, so we only ran up to ~4k. Livernois is making some tweaks...

Re: Livernois's Whipple supercharged 2014 SRT Jeep

I probably don't have all of the differences, but this is what I know:
- Livernois uses their own tuner and own tune - it isn't Whipple's.
- Whipple uses the Siemens Deka injectors, whereas...

Re: My Livernois Whipple build

Have to have fun with it, right? Several days ago I tried a 0-60, but left too hard and simply lit the tires up and gave traction control fits through 2nd gear. Last night I tried a different...

Re: Livernois's Whipple supercharged 2014 SRT Jeep

Just to follow up here in case others didn't see my build thread, my kit was delivered prior to Thanksgiving and I got it up and running in a few days. Lots of fun:

There is a bit of whine, but nothing crazy. Just the right amount IMO. Driving 'normal' in traffic, it is barely noticeable.
