what couch is getting at is your pcm learns a set strategy based on your engine. "Fuse pull" just resets all parameters like ignition advance, short and long trim fuel tables back to zero. People have the misconception of 100 hp, but all it does is ramp up your fuel temporarily until it gets back to the setting it once was (after 2 drive cycles). The car makes adjustments to everything on your car and a fuse pull just yanks its memory and makes it start all over again. It will return right back to the exact point it was based on what it re learns.
I heard there really is no 6.1 in the SRT. It is just a 5.7 with a 25amp #11 fuse instead of a 20amp. I never could understand why SRT owners spent all that money.
This theory has been on other forums except instead of the "fuse pull" you disconnected battery. This was around when I bought my 1990 Lebaron convertible. You may get a perceived bump but it is more like taking a placebo. Your car will eventually go back to the learned settings.
yep thats what pcms do . They adapt to little things so people dont get lights or need service for dust on a part kind of things.
Thats crazy on the 90 lebarons' . Those were an obd 1 vehicle that had half the adaptive strategies involved in todays vehicles. I cant beleive that worked back then too.
When I did mine yesterday it seemed to give it a kick in the butt. But this morning I remembered that the 13 slot was empty..... I put a 25 amp fuse in it shut the hood and everything ran awesome. It did burnouts and everything. When I got home I poped the hood and damned if it didnt convert my 3.5 to a 6.1. Bets mod yet!!!!! J/k
