To fix that issue, Mike put two set screws, with red loctite, through the wp pulley collar and into a dimple that was made on the shaft for the screws to bite into. Wow, sounds a bit much for me. Shippings not cheap on the private side lol. Hey Guys, Finally took the next and final step in my build. Also any idea of the mileage? Erik was also gonna modify my track tune to give me a little more timing on the back end and maybe a few more mph. If it's holding steady around 220 I wouldn't worry about it.
Transmission will be upgraded by Enhanced Transmission and it's rated to 800 rwhp. Moved the tensioner to the upper passenger side, attached to the bracket that the adjustable idler pulley was located, and added 3 additional idler pulleys. We are thrilled with our purchase and want to give credit where credit is due. What were the driving conditions going up a mountain, the bottom of Grand Canyon or???. It is not due for a coolant change but I did see my temp a little higher than I like and I was in Arizona. The only thing I can guess is that with the extra belt wrap now on the pulleys that is causing more torque applied to each pulley??? Here's the new belt routing and 8 rib pulley setup to help solve my tensioner and belt issues.
Hoping I can put this these issues to rest and get back to enjoying my car Nice set up. The car dynoed right at 620, but now Erik is thinking the car is closer to 700 rwhp and has room to grow. I must say this was one of the best car buying experiences I have had, thank you all at apex, would definitely recommend to anyone. Threw the belt on the last pass. The additional idler pulleys allow more belt wrap on the other major pulleys. When did it start over heating? Which pulley you running on the Whipple? The suspension is confidance inspiring and. .
The important thing is to see if the temp keeps climbing. He got involved because of my original not-so-favorable review on Car Gurus and went above and beyond to win our trust and, ultimately, our business. I ultimately did not buy from them as the truck I looked at did not meet my needs. The added idler pulleys are located: between the crank and alternator, between the water pump pulley and power steering pulley, and just above and to the left of the ac pulley. Planning on hitting the track soon and hoping to get a 10. Also, want to thank Erik Hemi 31 for everything that he is doing for me. Has to be frustrating for sure.
Hopefully the tune can be tweaked a little to resolve the issue. I am going to flush and refill my '06. Thank you, Stephen, for a job well done. Cormac, Ben and the team were great. Originally bought this to weld for track use but after riding in a car with a welded diff i lost interest, considering it would be in my daily. Thank you for going through all the trouble. All ive done to it since getting it was scrub off a lot of the dirt and grime.
Also decided to have a 5 point cage installed. Hey guys, My parents just got their 2006 300C 5. The tensioner is from a 5. Actually that was my wifes request, but probably not a bad idea. Should be some where around 14 psi and on 91 octane it should make 650 or so rwhp. Gonna try some slicks at some point and see if I can get a 1.
However, Ben was great, called around to other dealers to assist in finding one. Test drive it on a relatively flat road temp should stay 200 -220. Erik thought that that the throttle blade was closing for some reason. Made it to the track last night and pulled off a 11. Anyhting I should tell them to look for, or any ideas on recalls or issues? Ergonomics are great the seats are supportive and comfertable. Description: 2006 Chrysler 300C Srt8 stock rear differential and driveshaft. It just wasn't pulling like it should, so I talked with Erik and he walked me through the process of figuring out the problem.
Knock on wood no belt issues. Year, trim, miles of 300? How hot does it get? The interior is solid with easy to use controls. If there were more Stephen Hamilton's in the world, it would be a better place because he made a promise, did what he said he was going to do and delivered in the end even going above and beyond. Im willing to drive a bit and meet half way if the distance is reasonable. Im looking into possible shipping options. With everything installed, the first test run resulted in the water pump pulley coming off the shaft.
Stephen communicated on every detail of the truck we were originally interested in, did what he said he was going to do and then some! Got the car back a week ago and decided to really test her out. Communication is such a great tool if we would but use it! Noticed something wasn't quite right when I floored it. Did you put enough coolant in after you replaced the tstat? Did u change the Tstat because of the overheating or did it happen after the new tstat? A few people have had one of the fans go out, it happened to me not too long ago, but it would only be noticeable when you are driving slow or at a stop. Will be changing gear ratio to 3. The car fell on its face not too far into the run and I think that allowed enough slack to throw the belt. Great job Arron, Bret, and William, I hope I spelled them correct. Overall I'm happy with how the car is running.
It came out of a running and driving parts car that had been totalled and after repair still couldnt be re titled. I think this speaks highly of their commitment to service. I am having a little belt chatter at idle from the cam being fairly radical. Thanks guys, -Louis yeah they will get that hot and out in that area it may get a little hotter when they are sitting. Try to give us more details.
