Mine was fine after about that time.... but I was also sending logs back to RIPP (in my case) and they were forwarding new tunes. My experience was doing WOT in 0-100 runs and I say it was 3rd with...

Re: Whippled SRT - Transmission relearn?

I was told by my dealer that the tranny is always relearning (I think they said over a 50 start cycle). I too saw "hesitation" and what felt like hitting the rev limiter when I first got my SC but...

Re: Need to swap pistons when SC?

I'd say have a long talk with your SC MFR and raise the issue and see what they say. It could be that as these issues are being uncovered that they make changes to their kits/tunes etc to help...

Re: My SC update

Poor Bugger :( - It has me stumped why mfr do stuff like this. Last I checked we own our cars, and take our own risks in mods. Jailbreaking a car takes on a whole new meaning.

Re: Headers for Oz Model (RHD)?
