Alright, here’s the scoop. We finished the Jeep at 8 p.m. on March 25th (The third day of the build). We did do a burn out, but it was very unimpressive. The motor was running WAY rich. This Jeep is not a customer rig, and is considered a “side project”. Monday morning, it was back to business building axles for customers (I was already a little behind before the weekend). We called Robbie at MoTech later in the week. He told us that we were sent the wrong tune from Edelbrock. It would run well when it was real cold, but as soon as it warmed up, it sucked.
Robbie at MoTech has been the biggest help ever. This guy has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to engine tunes and wiring. He spent a lot of time getting to the bottom of this issue. Recently, we purchased EFI Live and decided that we are going to change this jeep to an EFI live tune, and not use the HP tuners that came with it. We again will be calling Robbie for some assistance. I would like to thank Robbie again at MoTech for helping us out so much. I can’t wait to build another one with his kit.
