Hey fellows and you ladies out there. Need A Little Help
I have an 05 Magnum and I have installed a K&N Air Charger, Magnaflow Mid pipes, Corsa Exhaust and Superchips Flashpaq Tuner.
And before I did all this my Mag was good at take-offs from 0-60.
Now my take-offs are awful, I put my foot down and it stalls and then explodes.
Now I'm not looking to be a speed junkie, but any suggestion of comment on how to get some of that launch back would help me alot.
Just by putting this items on I don't feel like getting much out of them.
0-60s aren't a very good way of judging how much power you've gained. Maybe if you did a few 0-60 runs stock, then added all those mods the same day and went out again you might get some results. 0-60s will vary so much based on the weather, road/track conditions, traction and how much weight you have in the car. No offense, but with the mods you've done you probably shouldn't expect huge gains anyways. You're probably about 20 rwhp or so over stock which would only be good for maybe 2-3 tenths on a 0-60/1/4 mile test anyways. I can't really remember with SC, but I know with my diablo if I keep a tune on for too long it seems to get stale. Try removing the flashpaq tune and reloading it.

Ya I wasn't looking for any big gains.
I'm were I like to be in my mag. But I will try redoing the flashqau.
I just know it seems to be alittle slower lately. And then again it my be the outside conditions making an impact on it.
Thanks for the reply, looks like you are the only one right now.
Your in Alabama, it's hot and humid probably, unless you have a turbo or supercharger, all cars run worse. You should notice quite a difference going from stock tune to SC premium tune however, including about 1 mpg better economy.

If you haven't pulled F11 recently, go ahead and try that now and see what changes you see.
I'd expect you'd be surprised...

This southern heat and humidity will kill your performance. Try pulling fuse #11 for 30 seconds or so, but I feel that your biggest gain will be felt when you get a 65* or 70* day with low humidity. Better yet, a 50* day will surely do the trick for you.

If you have a Diablo you can simply reset the adaptives that way.
If you don't, you'll never see the gains you dreamed of without it!

I agree w/ pulling the fuse. If that doesn't help, get that Flashqrap out of the car and try again.
I DRINK ROYAL PURPLE! WHAT NOW?!

Radiator Blew for the second time in THREE Weeks.
First the Radiator went out. I replaced it.
Second the upper fan motor went out, along with a broken lower fan after having radiator fixed.
And to top it all off I got my Magnum back today drove it home (8 miles from Dealership) heard hissing and all hell breaks loose.
I had all my work done at my Friendly Dodge Dealership.
I even got my WarHammer in today and I can't put it on. My whole weekend is screwed.
