So far the only upgrade was swapping out the directional s with AUXITO LEDs which I highly recommend. I put a vortech SI kit into a 2006 corvette a few years ago and this one looks a lot simpler.

have to ship the PCM to get unlocked but I am hoping to get it all done over a weekend. PCM is supposed to take 3 biz days so if the weather is nice, that following weekend...

Going to take it to dealer to get ALL fluids changed before the install.

what I have:
2018 Durango RT AWD, Blacktop Package.
I will update on install status and dyno results...

Does the kit come w/ an intercooler? Air to water or air to air? Front mount?

Pretty cool man. If you could take pics during the install, many of us will be looking forward to them.

Good luck with the install.

Maybe we can organize a group buy to get a deep discount? I’ll start a new thread on that. CSP Racing had Stage 2 for $6700 a few weeks ago. Let me see what they’ll do 5+, 10+, etc kits for.

Here is the product description from the website ( I got the phase 2):
Complete Kit with Tuning!
*Model years 2015-2018 and up require unlocked PCM's. Factory PCM's must be purchased or unlocked by HP Tuners (www.hptuners.com).

  • Most powerfuel 50-state emissions legal bolt-on available
  • No other upgrades required, just massive power right out of the box
  • Front entry W175ax (2.9 liters) Whipple twin-screw supercharger that significantly outperforms competitions 1.9L and 2.3L roots-type systems
  • Front feed supercharger utilizes precision ground helical cut gears vs a problematic belt or shaft through the inlet that causes massive VE loss
  • Integrated Crusher™ 109mm round inlet outflows smaller 90 and 93mm inlets such as other Eaton based systems
  • Integrated Crusher™ 109mm round inlet for optional oversized throttle bodies
  • Integrated design allows for oversized intercooler core compared to other smaller intercooler cores giving Whipple lower air charge temps which allows more boost and timing to be run on pump gas
  • Massive air-to-water aluminum bar-plate intercooler offers more cooling than any other positive displacement system available
  • Massive aluminum intercooler reservoir holds more than double the IC water than any of the competitors, more water, more power
  • Whipple Superchargers massive oversized intercooled air-bypass system for industry leading reduction of burst knock and incredible fuel economy, no ridiculous fabbed steel tubes or systems that circulate hot air
  • Self-contained oversized oil system for dramatically reduced oil temps in even the most demanding conditions
  • Exclusive 3x5 rotor combo for significant increase in airflow under the curve than less efficient 4x6 rotor combo
  • One-turn turn inlet allows for decreased induction losses when compared to rear inlet systems and 180deg bends
  • Center discharge port for better cylinder to cylinder distribution then other twin-screws with cobbled together billet adapters and forward facing discharge
  • Discharge down design allows for less pressure loss which gives more power at lower boost levels
  • Top mount design allows for cooler operation then upside down SC's that conduct heat from engine and are trapped by runners and covers, causing hotter manifold temps and less power per pound of boost
  • More boost at the "hit" than any other twin-screw
  • Flat torque curve for incredible acceleration
  • Oversized heat exchanger for incredible intercooler water temps
  • No internal engine modifications required
  • Completed installation looks factory installed
  • Kits come complete with all necessary parts and hardware for installation
  • Unique oil level sight glass for easy oil level and quality check, no dipstick to bind or misread
  • Plug and play wiring with male and female connections
  • Optional high flow air filter system featuring a S&B True flow filter
  • High flow fuel injectors included
  • Proven 6-rib belt system with adjustable idler system for easy belt changes and multiple pulley configurations
  • Stainless steel jack-shaft with unique plastic cover (or optional carbon fiber) for increased safety
  • OEM quick connect fittings for easy installation, no ugly brass or steel fittings on the SC
  • Complete kits, Competition kits and Hot Rod kits available
  • Available in wrinkle black, polish or any custom color
  • Easily upgradeable with big cold air intakes and bigger throttle bodies
  • Instant boost at the touch of the throttle
  • 3 minute pulley changes
  • Flash tool that allows you to read and erase codes and multiple data log features
  • 1 year warranty
  • Optional 3-year 36,000 mile powertrain warranty

STAGE 2 ADDED FEATURES

  • MSD™ Fuel pump booster with pre-defined voltage curve for less pump duty cycle then other pump boosters, only supplies increased voltage when needed, others are on/off
  • MSD™ Fuel pump booster voltage curve can be adjusted by user, no need to purchase "competition" version, already included
  • 1.5psi more boost for increased torque and horsepower
  • Modified calibration for increased power
  • Self-draining oil catch can
  • NGK Spark plug set (16) included

UPDATE: still waiting for delivery. On the website says “awaiting shipment” so I inquired what the hold up was and I was told that they source all the parts from different vendors and can take “weeks” to arrive. I will update once I get the delivery.

You motivated me. I ordered a stage 2!! Now I’m stalking the UPS guy. What other mods
do you have? Maybe we can share notes
on tuning. I was told the base tune that is provided leaves a lot to be desired.
