PostSubject: Anyone have experience with Modern Muscle   April 5th 2016, 9:56 pm

Hey, all. I don't post here very much, but I'd like to know if anyone here has any experience with Modern Muscle in Plainfield. I'm planning on having a Whipple installed on my '16 R/T in the next few months and I'd like to have it done locally if I could rather than drive out to Arrington or High Horse. But I also know it's not a cheap job and not an easy one, so peace of mind is really important to me and I'll make that drive if I think it's warranted.

If anyone cares to share their experience with Modern Muscle, good or bad, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks.

STAY FAR AWAY FROM MODERN MUSCLE.
It's not that hard of a job and there is a few local shops who could get it done for you. How do you plan on tuning it, does the kit come with new computer with a tuning device, or do you have to order that from Diablo?

Here are a couple of shops who could get it done
Modular Powerhouse Inc
601 W Jefferson St, Rockford, Illinois
Don't have Tims number, but maybe someone else can post it

AD Motorsportz
Huntley IL
Jeremy 331-999-4999

John Modular is having a open house in May, if you can wait til then you can head out with us and talk to them. I second what Shawn said though, either option is a good one.

Check the calendar, the open house is on May 21st.

Oh, wow.  Thanks!!

I can definitely wait until May for this.  I wasn't planning on doing it until some time in July.

Shawn, to answer your question about tuning, the answer is: I don't know.  lol  I'm just starting to do research on it.  I know I'll have to either send in my PCM to Diablo to get it unlocked, or buy an after-market PCM from them.  I was thinking that I might be able to get a canned tune from them, or I could have whatever speed shop that does the install do a custom tune, if they've got a dyno.

Thanks again, guys.  Really appreciate it.  Smile

I wound up having Arrington do the install.  They're ironing out some minor knock issues via email tunes, but here are the "before" and "after" dyno results.

Sorry, but I don't know why the images didn't show up. I must have done something wrong when I tried to add the attachments. Here are the rear wheel numbers from "before" and "after".

Before install:

348 HP
387 lb/ft

After install:

496 HP
469 lb/ft

Thanks!

8 psi. Arrington tells me that I can run that much without a forged bottom end without having to worry about it.

Your as safe as your tune is.
Highly recommend an A/F gauge if you don't already have one.
It's just an extra security blanket that doesn't cost much.

You know a Scat hood would look really good on your car, to go with all that power. I have one for sale

Thanks, but I like keeping it plain Jane on the outside. It's more of a sleeper that way. That is, if any of our cars can even be called sleepers. . . lol
