Doug has responded for me the last 2 weeks and he just sent me a tune, so no need to try it on a N/A tune. thanks for the heads up Jimmy.

I dont know whats up with Fred. Wayne has his number so that may be the route to go.

I am this much closer to the install now, waiting on a few other parts.

Doug told me the other day he DON'T write tunes for the S/C. He recomended finding some local to dyno tune it. He diddn't recomend even using his 87 perf tune either, too much timing i guess.:

I even asked if he would dyno tune it for me if i came there but he diddnt seam too receptive.

So now i have to find someone local.


BTW how does that 2 gauge pod work on the pillar with the handle on it? Will it fit under the handle or can it ba modded to leave the handle on it?

Icon6 Pod with handle...

I bought the pod from Summit Racing that has both gauges the same size and it wouldn't fit below the grab handle. I ended up cutting it down to a single and it fit fine... just run the boost gauge alone. The pillar has two distinct bumps and holes for the handle so if you remove it, you have to contend with those.

Thats what I was afraid of. Whats the part number for the column gauge mount? What did you all buy for that? I really want Boost and either fuel psi or A/F ratio. I'm kind of an information hound.

As I said in the original post, I cut it down to a single gauge pod. All I have is boost/vac and the Methanol Injection LED's.

Summit Racing Part
ATM-15308 - Dual - $29.95
ATM-15309 - Single - $22.95

Now they have a single one so you can avoid cutting the dual. They also sell Colorbond Interior Spray Dye - the greay matched mine perfectly. Just look up "Colorbond"

You may have seen his truck on the RPCastor site too. Jim's truck is the one that got me into really really looking at doing it.

Icon6 Tasca Ford

I am running a tune but I don't have much info on it. Dennis Gomes of Tasca Ford Performance Center (Yeah, the Funny Car Tasca Ford) in Cranston, RI did the tune for me on their Dyno.

http://bobtasca.com/

http://www.tasca.com/ou/cranston-for...=s_performance

Fred of RoguePerformance had been working with me but kept getting too busy or not getting back to me. I finally let Dennis have it and he did his magic - it runs great!

Shane has it right - I'm running an R.P. Caster kit with an Eaton M90 rebuilt by Supercharger Technologies in Old Towne, FL.

So guys, I'm just waiting on someone getting a mail order tune they feel safe with that provides good a/f ratios after the R.P. Caster kit install. I'm encouraged with the posted dyno results from several members but still waiting for that safe,final tune to know what is realistic without inflicting harm on my '07. Anyone made it back for another dyno flog with a "s/c tune"? Thanks.

If you can afford to get the truck dyno tuned after the supercharger, do it, it will be worth every penny.

Yea, that's probably the best and safest route as every vehicle is different as is the environmental factors for locations. Thank you.

HI!... I ran with the dual gauge pod from Autometer. I never used the D/S grab handle so I removed it. Here's a few pics.

When do you plan on getting SC'er dyno #'s?
