Snake Oil. Don't waste your money.

If you want a tune, check with the folks at Eurocharge.

There are no performance chips that add that much HP...you will need a custom tune, which will give you some HP....nothing out there is going to give you that much short of a lot of engine work..so, yes, it is snake oil....Eurocharged can help with a tune....Sprint Booster for faster throttle response, no HP gain, CAI for 5-10 HP gain...but after that, you need to look at injectors, fuel, etc


'05 Black Xfire #59312 SRT6 Roadster
'05 Blue xfire #42796 SRT6 Coupe
Both cars have the following mods:
Needswings Dual CAI, catch can, PSK, coupe has Needswings mani's, roadster has 180's manis, Eurocharged tuning, wavetrac, high performance brake fluid, metal lines, and upgraded ceramic brakes. Roadster has a Code 3 65mm S/C pulley, Coupe has a Karmann 62mm S/C pulley. Both cars run summer compound tires.

Full custom Dyno, injectors, a CAI, and Jake &Jerry's magic touch will get you to 265/285HP.

Easy chip in the mail will likely get you nothing but a postage due.

Take this cowboy's advice and double your money. Fold it in half and put it back in your wallet.

It is not so much where they are. Becayse they are here on the Forum.
Eurocharged tuning weekend- June 19-20 Washinton DC

They do travelfrom city to city with special Dyno tuning.

However you can get with Jake or jerry and do a "remote" tune. Coolist thing I've ever seen.

You can go to their website from that link and shop or just PM Jake LOUNGN.

Great Guys.

You should hook up with DOC. Despite what you might hear about his dubious reputation here, he knows his stuff.

A good guy you can count on.

BoilerUp is there in Indy also. Another good local friend to make.

Both are on the northside of town.

Save him some money Doc and give him a ride in the SRT first.
He won't want the tune after that.
He can then put the money he saved towards his own SRT.

That is true DJ, but he seems like a nice young man, so he needs a few more years of driving before he moves up with old guys...lol.....Did you see the vid on Jim's car...should have seen in person...you would want one for sure...sounds like modified stocks at the drag strip...look for wheels to come up if it doesn't break something....

You guys really need to tag up and maybe consider a drive up to Chi-town and have a tune done the right way.
