My boosted 2014 Durango RT AWD
Just like my other build thread, I don't have the energy to type it all up again so read here: Please Register or Login to view links.

For those like me with short attention spans, here's the Reader's Digest version:

I have a 2014 AWD Durango RT that's been lowered on Road Magnet springs and boosted with a 2.9L Whipple blower.

The boss and I have a few ideas of what we still want to do to the family hauler. Rest assured, our kids won't grow up in a boring grocery-getter.

Oh yeah, "pics for attention", right Sean?

RE: My boosted 2014 Durango RT AWD
The Durango is hers, so I don't get to do anything to it without her permission. I brought up getting the Whipple and she said yes. The whole way back from Houston she was asking about bagging the Durango and adding some stuff for show-n-shines. She said said the Durango could tow the race cars and both of us could "compete". I love it!

Awesome. My wife loves her Durango....except I made her get a 3.6. She used to have a Hemi in her Aspen. She is not a fan of the downgrade. LMAO

RE: My boosted 2014 Durango RT AWD
Oh, I forgot to mention. If you read my other posts, you'll know that I've been having an issue getting a good tune. After bugging the crap out of all of the trusted tuners, Mike@OST responded. He sent me a new baseline that is better than what I got from 11 revisions with Johan. Nothing against Johan, he puts together some killer tunes for lots of people, but they just weren't working for my vehicle. As they say, "your results may vary". We're just getting started but I'm cautiously optimistic.

I'm going to drive it for a day or two before I do any logging to give the PCM time to adjust. However, there is no more sputtering and no more black smoke. If this continues I'll be able to consider putting it on the dyno again.

Ripp and Sprintex both offer a supercharger for the 3.6 and I hear Edelbrock is getting into it too.....I'm just sayin'.

She has her CHL, add a blower and she would truly be dangerous!

Good deal on the tune, I've worked with Mike, he's a good guy.

I don't want to get too sidetracked, but what does she carry, if you don't mind me asking? We've both got ours and we're looking for a good CC to keep in the truck. I'm a fan of Sig 40's, but she handled a Taurus .38 pretty well at the range.

So far I'm happy. I'll definitely post up how things go from here, good or bad. If things go well, you may see me with truck and trailer at the Texas Mile in the spring.

Go into the Garage and look at shooters corner, we love guns here. Smile

Thanks, but something tells me the Colonel has nothing to worry about.
