Re: 5.7 wk limited starter

Re: Catch Can Q

Most that I have seen will cross over from the 6.1 to the 5.7 Hemis. The mounting locations & hardware are different... at least with Billet Tech. Speaking of Billet Tech, I got an email from them...

Re: JKS Quick-Disconnect's

The grease might be a contributing factor. Poly ends move around a little when they get slick. But if they connects themselves have any play in them, they will tend to be noisy.

Re: 2005 5.7 Hemi Jumpy Transmission While Accelerating

I'm close to 105K. It feels more "violent" than the MDS twitching. Trying to avoid the dealer on anything. I have only experienced it a couple times over the last two weeks. I'll keep checking in.
