Whassup fellas.
This question is to all who have gone the way of he beoved 6.1 cam..
I have one sitting in my living room as of last week. My question is, what does it do to the idle characteristics? I am not running a superchips programer, just a Hypertech PPIII, and would hate it if I put this mad boy in, and my truck cant find an idle..I am hoping for a smooth silky idle, with just a little more funk in it, but not a "searching" for idle if you know what I mean...
I have read many posts about some trucks running the 6.1 and loving it, but no one is talking about idle..
So hows my 05 gonna idle when I do the swap?
Like factory but funkier, or like crap and work great from 3k on up?
Thanx,
L

It will idle fine just with a very slight lope...wump wump wump wump. Definitely more muscular, but not at all racey.

Well my idle has always been a little rough, at least since I installed the headers, so to me it really hasn't changed.

Describe your def. or rough..
Rough like truck shakes a little, but tach stays steady, or rough like tack moves up and down 500 rpm consistently?
Thanx,

More like a sporatic slight miss, but it stays pretty steady at 600 RPM's. I drive mine HARD and I've noticed that when I do it idles a little rough, and when I drive like a girl it pretty smooth.....

Sweet..
Whats so weird with my current setup, after the install of he srt-10 dual in dual out muffler, I get a constant idle of 500 rpm's even and steady after she is warm.
She idled higher than that prior to he install of it.
I am hoping that my exhaust combo dosent become a prob...
Thanks for the quick responses.

Beautiful Macon Georgia...
Come on down, we'll leave the light on for ya'... :)
Mostly Chevy boys down here.
My partner is a die hard Bowtie man, I myself am a Mustang fanatic.
When it cam etime for new trucks, I went where the Horsepower was...
Helllo dodge...!
This engine has a ton of potential..{HEMI}
I would love to see one with just stand alone engine management.
I have an Accel Gen VII on my Cobra and it allows for anything.
{Funny, cause I have a Tunnel ram on my 331ci 95 GT with 2 Holley 4150's on it...}
I like injection and Carbs, but Carbs are cheaper if you know how to tun'em right.
I'm tired of spending money..
Wish I could just throw a Dominator on the Hemi truck... :)

highdollar, so when is this install going to happen? I'm right next door to you.
I've had a 6.1 cam for almost a year now, and it's still sitting in my office. LOL

If you're doing the install yourself, I wouldn't mind hanging around.
Are you doing springs too????
