Hot Rodding the Hot Rod - Never Enough...
2015 JKUR with all the "normal" trimmings... 40's, tons, coilovers, etc., etc.
Hated every minute of it with the 3.6l buzz box even after trying a number of performance tweaks from transmission tuning, engine tuning, basic bolt-ons, but stopping short of a blower. Don't get me wrong, on the trail I had no complaints but if I had to drive it to the trail, forget about it.
10k miles on the odometer and I was done with the stock drive train. Body came off and in went a crate LS3, 6L80E, and 241 using MoTech's swap. I didn't think the smile would ever leave my face and I was extremely thrilled to drive the Jeep both to and on the trail.
Of course I cant leave anything alone and the pursuit for more began after turning 8k miles on the LS.
First call was to John at Overland Performance for a new tune. Robbie, in his (well respected) pursuit for OEM like achievement, certainly leaves some ponies on the table. John, after just a few tune changes, had the LS driving/shifting exactly how I wanted it. As I told him, the tune "fit me like a well crafted suit".
