    Is speedlogix the only one making this for the Hellcat?
    I tried to buy one on EBAY and they were a nightmare. Several emails sent, phone call not returned after actually speaking with someone, and had to cancel my paypal payment.
    Thanks in advance

    There is no difference between the ones made for prior year models and the Hellcat. Same Ohm resistor inside the plug, same plug / jack.

    That said... I have the speedlogix one in my R/T and it works great. My daughter also has a different brand one in her R/T and has no issues. I will say when I installed both of them that the speedlogix plug is a much better quality (durability-wise)... and remember... these things sit under the car, by a hot transmission, where dirt and other road crap is kicked up.

    Super e-z, just unplug & install it between tranny& factory plug....just do it when the car is cold, cause its hot by the tranny

    Yeah... 5 minutes if you have access to a lift. A bit longer if you try the jack the car up yourself and crawl under.

    Fortunately my local tire guy lets me use his lift for quick little jobs like that, at no charge. (I still buy him some beer though. ;) )

    I also suggest zip-tieing the wires back. You pretty much have to snip the original zip tie in order to get the eliminator plugged in-line.

    We have about 2800 miles on ours and never had this skip shift get in the way of normal driving. I do know it works as I deliberately shifted at 19(?) and it worked. Maybe I tach up a bit more than most ?

    Could you please send me a PDF copy of the install instructions. I had a dealer install mine and they put it in the reverse solenoid position.
    I'm calling tomorrow in the am . If you have it in PDF form please email to ljaviation@yahoo.com ASAP.
    Thanks,

    Yep. easy to install, but definitely let the car cool down a while. I now have a small catalytic converter burn on the inside of my upper arm...but scars make you cool.

    Speedlogix is always a good source! Speak with Chris aka ------- Mikey:cool:

    It takes longer to get the ride up in the air than the install itself! :D

    Instructions said upper-most plug-in. NOT correct. In front of tranny crossmember drivers side, half way up tranny. Need to revise instructions as many have included in their review of this product. Works great!
