Default Dyno tuning (flash tuning) V6 JK Wranglers

Are any (Victorian) members interested in a flash tune for your Petrol V6 JK Wrangler. Herrod/sct now make a tuner kit and my local workshop is offering a special deal for the first ten customers. This involves a hand held controller similar to but better than the superchips one and many hours of dyno time.
Benefits: improved fuel economy, greater power and more torque to name a few.

Are there anyone here interested?

What engine are you meaning 3.8, 3.6 or both.

There's very little info on the SCT tuner itself especially the extra functions like fast idle, TPMS change, tire diameter, ESP disable, DTC's in plain text, diff locks etc etc etc. For me these are very important functions

More power would be good, but the tuner needs to be well set up for ongoing use.... I'm over tuners that have some functions but not all - and of course a lot of the time once brand x is used brand Y won't work.

If they post a few before and after dyno graphs proving they represent good value for money it would be interesting.

I believe it is for both 3.6 and 3.8 v6 engines.
This is pretty much the exact same tuner as what is used for tuning BA/BF/FG falcons. Its more than just a hand held controller, it is written to via laptop while the vehicle is being run up on the dyno.
I'll be able to tell you exactly what it can do very soon as my Jeep is one of the first jeeps to use it.

Yes I understand the hardware / software involved.......but i NEED the hand held bit to do the day to day adjustments and it needs to actually work, so that's why its important to me. What they do on their dyno is important to them in customizing the tune... but that's hopefully a one off.

I've already accumulated a handful of interfaces / programmers, but they all have their own unique issues, Some simply don't work as advertised and once you've spent your money its F you jack. Start making multiple dyno visits and the costs skyrocket.

As I said... let them publish BEFORE and AFTER dyno graphs of a single vehicle and city and highway fuel consumptions... all around driveablity is important to most of us as well as power/torque.

Herrod's aren't novices, and I'd REALLY like someone local to be able to do decent tuning for modified JK's........ but there are many tuning companies who's results just haven't matched their claims.

There is little point tuning NA motors, i really cant see the point especially the minivan motor in the JK, i think at best you might get 5-10 HP i cant see the point.. spend the money on something else... as for thos putting chargers on the JK block... erm.. good luck with that long term!

well as I said, my V8 Jeep is going to be a bit of a test mule, so i'll be able to report on how effective it is as soon as I've had mine tuned. From initial dyno tests, there seems to be quite a lot of room to move with the V8 WJ (as can be revealed by the a/f ratio at certain RPMs).
I can assure you it would be well more than the 5-10hp "at best" you seem to think its only good for. I'll be happy to post/prove results once mine has been tuned
