Well there's a pile of stuff on the forum both good and pessimistic on the Race Chip. So I figured I would give it and a incogneto pulley a shot. I will be posting before and after HP figures when done with each.
Well there's a pile of information and videos' on the incogneto pulley install. That's good. Should be straight forward. However I got this chip figuring it would be a breeze too. Heck how hard could it be to follow the instructions and swap out some plugs.. Well it would be easy however they send general instructions that show it being installed on a trubo VW. Yup. Just stupid.
Does anyone know the location and maybe even a parts diagram would work showing the boost pressure/Manifold pressure and cam sensor locations?

You don't want to wait for the dealer tune and keep your warranty?

Yes I emailed them and they forwarded specific instructions for a hellcat (looks like its a Challenger/Charger though but same idea) I planned on doing the same but haven't pulled the trigger just have them sitting in the boxes and was waiting to see what came about with the Power Packages from the dealer. Give me a few and I will see I can find the email.

B2 looked like a pain so I decided to wait for now and then the Dodge Power Broker news came out so I thought I would see what they would have as far as packages go. I too have the incognito but have not installed either, good luck!

I can't thank you enough. I will do before and after reads from the HP gauge on the truck. I'm trading the truck in on a 22 at Koons so warranty isn't a bother. I'm going to have to get goo at this.

Let me know how it goes, looking forward to the results! Im guessing it should be around 800 crank or at least thats the number that has been thrown around. If that is true-ish I may add the pro flex e85 kit on top of it all and see what happens for pure simple bolt on/plug n play gains. I have my AFE superstock intake preordered as well but that will likely only be good for 11-15 hp.

Your not going to believe this one. There are 4 different connections. In there instructions they mark them a-d. On what they sent you they marked A1 A2 B1 B2. On the harness they sent me its marked just A & B 2 times
I'm telling you, you just can't make this stuff up. Wrong instructions, mismarked wires. Makes me wonder what I putting in my truck??
I was hoping the connectors would be different on each sensor but all 4 are the same

This is just ridiculous. I should send this back and do an E85 kit with the pulley.

Lol 100% agree. I wonder since they are all the same connector does it matter?

All of the plugs have different color wires going in them. Not unless the chip sees what they are and converts them but if that were true there would be no numbers on them at all.

Good point! Plug it one way and hope it doesnt mess up?

I was going to the e85 however the connection that goes in the gas line is a bear to get at.

Dude,

Follow the diagram in the pictures. There is A1B1 A2B2. You connect the paired harnesses to the paired sensors. It doesn’t matter as long as they’re plugged in the pair.

Pull the air filter and intake, lay on the engine like Superman to reach A2B2.

It absolutely works. I, of course, wouldn’t know because I’d never add a mod that would affect the warranty, but all I’ve read says it’s great.

Thanks, there are a1a2b1b2 on the diagram however look at the harness photos. There not labeled. a1 a2 b1 b2 just a&b and there wiring shows there clearly different. I emailed he company and expect to get it resolved. No T day in Germany. Should have an answer today or tonight. They have been responding quickly.

I had the same question to which they replied with this and that is when they sent the pictures but no way to narrow down which set is A1B1 and A2B2 so I just put it in the box and on the shelf in my garage 🤣😂 let us know what you find out!

It turns out you can put ether of the the A plugs on ether A1 or A2 sensors and then ether B plugs on B1 or B2 sensors? Mission accomplished. Now to do some baseline runs.

Fingers crossed it is worth it! How hard was B2 to get?
