    Hello Bill,

    James fomr San Leandro. I went o Ditos and had them swpa out my struts, shock springs and mounts to a Eichbach Pro-kit. It was supposed to lower the car 1.5 inchs and instead it drop almost 3. The worst part is, that when i asked them about the clunking still present, they said "Its an old car and body panels make that noise". this was 6 months ago.

    I plan on taking it back to them.

    Just saying I guess.

    I was reading the list of stuff you've done to your car, wow.


    The only thing I was wondering is what you did after lunch???

    I wanted to thank you for helping me with guidance on using the diablo u7135 tuner. HOLY CRAP !!!! After the tune the cars drives like a completely different car. Still have that odd vibration and all speeds so I am guessing with you that it is the motor mounts that are going bad. Once again thank you for help, oh,, please send me the link for the challenger motor mounts for the magnum.��

    Bill,
    Today when I went to drive my car, it started right up then stalled after 2-3 seconds. I tried it several times with the same results. Oil is fine and no error codes, the only thing that is weird is that sometimes the starter seems to sound like it's turning fasted than normal. Should I reload the Predator CMR? Only 49,000 miles on it. Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    P.S. Filled up with gas Sunday and have driven it over 50 miles. Just tried the gas peddle reset. Same thing, runs smooth for 2-3 seconds and stalls. I do hear the fuel pump when I turn the key on. Sometimes when it stalls, the oil or ESP light comes on but that could be normal because the key is still on.

    Hello Fireman,

    I wanted to thank you once again for your advice. I do hope you know what an amazing resource you are for all of us here.

    I was hoping I might ask your opinion on the rear control arm bushings. I can get a full set of prothane bushings shipped for just about what it will cost me for the same bushings at rockauto and they would be shipped within Canada making it a little easier and faster for me. I wondered what you thought of these: Prothane 4220 - Rear Control Arm Bushings. Prothane 4-220-BL. Since I am not lowered at all I am not concerned with any camber issues and these look like they might be a good upgrade as well as a repair.

    Thoughts?

    Thank you again for your time and help. I really do appreciate it.

    Thanks Bill. Mine was set to STANDARD and does NOT upshift in manual; should I change to either 1 - 2 -or 3? What exactly did I do when I changed shift points ~ it did NOT say anything about RPM numbers? Maybe I have an older version of the Predator.

    And mine was going into limp mode after first gear in AUTO MODE!

    It is nearly impossible to put "full throttle" on this car ~ Believe ME it gets scary at about 1/2 throttle. With the P1 unit and old tune I could full throttle and go pretty straight ~ NOW with the D1 unit and about 63 additional HP to the rear wheels it starts to go sideways.

    There is ALOT I don't know about this car!

    Hi Bill, got a question>>>

    Today IS the first day I have messed with my Predator on my 300 SRT. At full throttle my car always went into limp mode prior to shifting. I was told to change the shift points so I did, but it did not say how much>>> Then when I was looking at the Predator it shift shift modes for manual shifting Manual Standard ~ One ~ Two ~ Or Three. Mine is set at Standard; I did NOT mess with that as I don't know what 1 2 3 do???

    Did I do the right thing by changing shift points; as I'm NOT sure what I just did. Funny when I looked at performance tune I did NOT see options performance tune with CAI. I was afraid to mess with it as I did NOT want to mess up the tune put in at Arringtons!

    Thank you>>>> And Tee said while we were outside to ask Firemarshal Bill ~LOL~
