LOL, Glad you came on here and straightened everything out!!! If you said it, it must be a Fact!!! ROFL

What part of "Self tuning" do you not understand?

BTW is your name Toby? You sure sound like him.

B&G is some of the worst people you could have to tune your jtec.

Doesn't look super easy:

Next option is to get an OEM or MP PCM for a 5.9 since that will have a wider fuel map than the 5.2. (The Ram pickups and Vans PCM basically are the same pinout and can be used between one and other along with the 5.2 and the 5.9 can run off each other PCM, I know of this first hand)
Next is to get your PCM flashed, it is super rare these days but B&G performance did it at one time, CALL THEM! See link below.
Next is to get a multi-processor-driven signal manipulator, see the magazine article below.
Next is to get a stand alone fuel management system, like Megasquirt, and you can tune it yourself. See link below
Next is to convert from OBD1 to OBD2 as said above very time-consuming.



Here is a copy and paste from the FAQ2 in this section.

Engine Stand Alone Engine Management Systems
http://www.megasquirt.info/
http://www.fuelairspark.com/Products...er/sb/over.asp

Factory Computer Reflashes

There are very little for Dodge OBD1.

The best would be a Mopar performance computer. You can get them at http://www.mopar.com/performance/index.html or http://www.summitracing.com/

Jet chips has a plug in. It has been cheep quality and not worth it for most. http://www.jetchip.com/

You can get http://www.hypertech.com/Products/Po...uning%20Module (No reviews yet)

Here is one that flashes and can give you a handheld unit. http://www.bgperformancepcm.com/#magnum
At once this site had it listed but the site seems to be down now. http://nrar.com/

You can Also get get a multi-processor-driven signal manipulator that goes in-line between your engine and ECU.
http://www.unichip.us/dodge.asp

Petersen's 4Wheel & Off-Road Magazine did an article on it.

If you have no ac, you may want to consider the eq heads for a magnum, but use a LA style intake. Here is a link to the heads. https://www.jegs.com/p/JEGS/JEGS-Eng...95951/10002/-1

Then you could use the edelbrock pro flo 4. https://www.jegs.com/i/Edelbrock/350/35900/10002/-1
What about the fuel pump? Can I use the stock fuel pump?

Marty Fletcher ( utawesomeperformance.com ) and Flyin' Ryan Hogan ( https://www.frptuning.com/ ) come to mind.

And if there's three, there's more.

Yes, but you'll need to add a proper pressure regulator for carbed.

*dry* 45psi will make that carb one heck of a literal fire hose ...

Yes. Ryan Hogan at flying Ryan performance. Do NOT use Marty for tuning. You can research the webs and facebook on why not. And then also look who's tuned the fastest jtec controlled vehicles. Do what you want though.
