I have been receiving a fair number of messages lately with general questions about the Magnuson install. I have read back through the Leftcoast thread and while super entertaining for those of us who lived it, it is a bit long winded😁. So my thought is to use this post for a condensed easy "go to" place for all the tips and tricks when putting your Magnuson on. I hope some of you dont mind I borrowed your content.

1. Spark plugs that work well. 6 needed

2. Relocation of the ambient air sensor to this location. You will need to extend the OEM wiring.

3. Relocation of the fuel tank purge valve. Where magnuson puts the valve, it can resonate on the firewall. Using some fuel vent line you can move it heare and it alleviates the noise.

4. Changing out the idler pulleys for some decent quiet ones. You will need two of these for the pulleys by the supercharger snout

5. Here is a tip from Tonopah for getting your heat exchanger in correctly

I will make a second post with tune upgrades and the instructions.

When you get to the point you are driving your supercharged Jeep around and feel you need some refinement, power, or an improvement in driveability, you can use the links below provided by Z1krause. These will allow you to flash on the tunes, I provide on this website. The HP flash tool Magnuson supplies, that flashes the .RTD file is not compatible, as that tool is locked to Magnuson's tunes.

HP Tuners MPVI2:https://www.hptuners.com/mpvi2plus/
2 x Jeep or Universal MPVI credits for the engine:
4 x Jeep or Universal MPVI credits for the automatic transmission:

Dodge 2018+ Smart Access Cable: https://www.hptuners.com/product/dodge-2018-smart-access-cable/
VCM Editor and VCM Scanner

If you end up needing to make changes, this wideband is really cool and allows you to look at fueling data with your hp tuner data.

Last but not least here are the calibrations I have provided. Hopefully someday I will make the ultimate tune,but until that day you can expect updates from time to time, on this thread.

I am including
1. Instructions for copying the tune. I cannot give you a ready to flash tune without licensing your vin to my HP, that would mean a person would have to buy two sets of licenses, unless I personally flash your jeep

2. Channel list for HP Scanner. This channel list will allow me to diagnose or modify your tunes

3. Lastly the calibration for an automatic and a calibration for a manual jeep

Might be jumping a head a bit, but running the numbers I am thinking this may be an option.

UPDATE: In the last revisions of HP tuners, the Beta release has vastly different table definitions from the stuff before it. With that some critical information can be lost, that needs copied over. Thank you to Andrew for helping me figure this out.

I am reposting the files as I saved them this with the latest Beta release.

Please using Beta 4.11.543 when working with these files

Well y'all I did the pulley upgrade tonite. So far I can say, it is a great upgrade! It actually helped the jumpiness off the start. And now with my cam tuning, I am pushing V8 levels of airflow. It runs consistently in the high 9 psi range just barely touching 10psi. Acceleration seems smoother. And the top end is a riot. I think the extra torque all the way around helps things run better not sure why yet.

Now the blah news. Tuning was required. It was somewhat lean in a couple areas around 4K and up, with that airflow.

I believe my belt may be to long. Now when I turn the wheel when at a stop sometimes I get a weird rattle and I think it is the belt tensioner at the end of travel.

I have got the tune shored up and I am gonna start searching up a belt.
K060975RPM

Would anybody be interested in buying a kit if I put it together, or you all good sourcing things yourself.

Kit would be: Pulley, Belt, Tune

So the new pulley requires a shorter belt. I grabbed the one in the picture today.

Pro tip, putting a serpentine belt on your gladiator is not a task you fit in between student parent conferences and dance class, while making dinner, unless your looking for an impractical stress test.

For all your assistance I would be happy to purchase thru you if the price was right. Hopefully installing mine next week finally.
