Default Stage 1 Upgrade

Went to my dealer & inquired about putting the Stage 1 upgrade......first parts & service did not know what it was......2nd they quoted $595.00 for parts & could not determine the labor charge.......& the free blower valve before Sept 30th.....they had no idea what that deal was.....this is in Long Island NY.....not some foreign country. Is this what this costs?? Does it all pay for 60 more horses? Does the fuel economy hurt with it?

Thanks
Larry

Also it is well worth it.

As for mpg it depends on how heavy your foot is.

I see this 60 plus horses advertised but that must only be if you have a turbo lite as its only supposed to add 20 hp on the normal turbo HO models - Does anyone know for sure?

Yep, 60 hp for turbo lite. Little misleading isn't it? I told the woman from Mopar that when she posted about the free Mopar bov with Stage 1 purchase. Guess she didn't care.

You'll get 10 more hp and torque will rise to 260. You'll also get:

Calibration Features - Manual Transmission (MTX)

* Increased WOT and part throttle boost
* Enhanced 1st gear boost schedule for a higher performance launch
* Optimized calibration for the Mopar Performance Blow Off Valve Conversion Kit (P4510548 - sold separately)
* Improved turbo resopnse
* Boost hold feature during Wide Open Throttle shifts
* Soft rev limiter

Calibration Features - Automatic Transmission (ATX)

* Increased WOT and part throttle boost
* Optimized calibration for the Mopar Performance Blow Off Valve Conversion Kit (P4510548 - sold separately)
* Improved turbo resopnse
* Performance optimized transmission calibration


The upgrade is well worth it and the building block to more power.
