    In addition to Rhodeheaver is Street Lethal Performance (further north in PA) and I believe they too, are site sponsors.

    I have nothing but good things to say about Tim Rhodeheaver and have never heard anything bad about Street Lethal (but have never dealt with them).

    I know Tim does SCT but does he have experience with tuning Mopars?

    How do you feel about TEA head builders around Akron, Ohio for headwork. Bluecat (Philip H. Smith) down in Ashland, Kentucky for a dyno near Huntington, WV. They are not sponsors, and the addresses are only close. I do not know whether referrals are welcome of non-sponsors and I apologize. thx

    Free world, say what you like I have heard good things about Bluecat (for LS tuning) but I have no personal experience with them.
    To contact Bluecat, leave an email at philiphsmith@windstream.net He will answer in due time. He really works hard to get it right. He is situated in Cattletsberg, just across the river. Turn left on US23 and go 9mi. His farm is on the left-hand side of the hi-way. Bluecat logo sitting on a fence and a small church across the tracks.

    I have no idea where OST is. I ported my own heads for my magnum. I pretty well had to guess and fill the intake/exhaust ports with liquid to keep the volumes consistent.

    Here is the thread...

    Mopar tuning is advanced, they really locked down their ECM on certain vehicles.

    Mopars take a different software and were much harder to crack, the "three headed dog" days as the SRT guy put it. were hard on tuning.

    I know even just working on Carrie's Charger was one of the biggest pains in the ass of any stereo job I ever did. The CAN-BUS systems that sent signals to the speakers instead of wires, and that type of thing seemed a little excessive to me. Wished I wouldn't have told her I'd do it before knowing what I was getting into. I can imagine how much of a PIA the ECU would be.
