if it was me I would disconnect the battery and and pay the 1000 bucks to ship it to one of the expert tuners from this site like, Barth
The more I think about the entire scenario with my limited experience/knolwedge the more I believe this was destined to happen with the combination of events that day. Tune was installed day before, added timing, stated ok to use ms109, car had ran perfect prior to this day except for an early engine code that the tuner fixed, ran the car at highway speeds with a heavy foot, disaster strikes. There has to be a connection, but again i’m not one for making unsubstantiated accusations. Either way, it was my decision to do all of this, and this is a lesson learned about choosing tuners.This doesn't sound right at all and also combined with your stock injectors you had to be on teh bleeding edge. You also mentioned he only had 16 of the 24 parameters he wanted. Can you post some logs or even the tune file? I'm sure someone here can tell you what went wrong.
Thank you sir! Greatly appreciated as I think starting the diagnostic part of this process is all I can do right now. I seem to figure my way through most situations and so my life as an engine problem finder begins. I was advised by more than one mechanic to do what I could in the way of trying to determine at least where the problem exists if not even trying ti figure out what happened. If I begin that process I will take pics of everything and post. I have a record of everything I’ve ever done to this car in pics and video, ill post whatever if anyone seems interested. Thank you again.Here's a great article on how to change your plugs.
Here's a borescope available on Amazon. Yes, there are cheaper ones, but this one will actually fit in the spark plug hole (after my edit!).
Here are the logs I sent before the last revision tune, I can't seem to upload the tune file, the extension isn't accepted any ideas how to upload that?The more I think about the entire scenario with my limited experience/knolwedge the more I believe this was destined to happen with the combination of events that day.

I believe I can attach the files, I will attempt to attach them to another post.
Interesting thing on these dan1546 is that they can have two active fuel maps in the same tune, and can switch between them. Kinda unusual...I never ran into that on the GM LS motors or the Fords, but that's a thing here. Speedy has some good videos walking through the inners of the Hellcat tune if interested. Just search for them here on the forum.I am not a tuning expert by any means but you can't have a single tune that works well with both pump and race gas...
Thank you I will try that as soon as I get back to HQ3XBlackCHC - You can post the files to a Google Drive or Microsoft OneDrive account, and then use the link function (7th button in from the left on the tool bar) to point to them. Just be sure to set the sharing to what you want on Drive / OneDrive or it won't work.
Thank you sir!3XBlackCHC -
Just wanted to chime in that, though the circumstances are unfortunate, your post is reasonable and well-written. Many similar posts that I've read have attempted to blame everyone but themselves for taking the risks to modify a daily-driver and reading your post is refreshing. The entire thread is great...aside from a couple of people with apparent cognitive issues, but still very informative.
Best of luck!
Very true and I didn’t start this thread to bash anyone, just simply as a way to help figure my way through this mess. If the tuner screwed me somehow it will eventually come out and I have ways of contacting him about it. It won’t do me any good and at that point if it’s the right time I will certainly post his information here as a beware warning so as to prevent another case such as mine.Listen guys it’s not always tuner, OP has been upfront about everything, including the part that the day after he got all his mods and tune he went testing and was heavy footed. He was driving that car hard, lots of things change when your wailing on the car pretty good. Could have got shitty pump gas at the station and was on the bleeding edge, add that and whacking the paddle shifts a bunch, high revving, launching, burnouts, lots of WOT pulls.
Not saying this is on the OP either, some things don’t add up on the tuners part as well.
Thanks sir, the responders have actually been even more helpful than I anticipated and I am glad I brought my story here.Removed the "distractions" from the thread, apologies to the OP
After all of my research, I too believed that this was simply stage one to the mods and that the car could handle these mods in stock form otherwise. I don’t mean to be the guy that disproves anyone elses opinions because I also know from my research that this setup has been done successfully many times before I came along. I trusted all of that information and still do. I think something in particular to my situation is what went wrong and the biggest lesson here for anyone should obviously be, if you’re going to install mods yourself, take the car somewhere that can analyze what you did before you take it out ripping down the highway and have them tune it as well. In my opinion that would have made all the difference in the world. I am sure this will help any other newbies like me make the right decision moving forward, not everyone is cut out for doing what I did but those who are beware and learn from my flub.Sorry this happened OP. In defense of your choice to mod your daily driver, that mod combo is relatively tame compared to most so I don't fault you there. The red flags (learning opportunities) I see are what has already been mentioned....stock injectors and what is sounding like a sketchy tune/tuner. I would think you would at least need Demon injectors for that pulley but probably 1050cc injectors or something similar. Again, as has already been mentioned, the damage is done and we have all made mistakes and probably pushed things too far in one way or the other if you've been doing this long enough, so don't beat yourself up over it. You seem to have a good outlook on this. Good luck with your plan to move forward and remember that your next setup will be even better since you've had the opportunity to learn from this go-round.
