you dont like the hp tuners products?
I'm not sure I understand the question. My tuner does use HP Tuners since we are running through an NGauge. I have nothing to do with the actual tuning side of it other than sending the datalogs to him.

Hey everyone. Motor and trans were pulled Sunday so I can do cams and converter. It also gives me the opportunity to clean up the engine bay. Progress will be slow the next few months since I had knee surgery today. All is well but it will be some time before I'm able to work on the truck without hurting my recovery.

My truck's sponsor, Auto Mafia Racing, crushed the 3.7 sealed motor record by a half-second over the weekend at Cleetus and Cars. The motor itself has 150k miles on it. He is the go-to guy for anything 3.7 and has competitive pricing on almost all brands of performance parts Support the small guy and tell him ksack sent you.

First time I've run across the term "sealed motor". What does it mean? I'm guessing it means nothing done to a stock motor....

Nothing done internally. No forged internals, no cams or upgrade heads or anything like that.
