Thread: 99 Dakota Build

  1. #1

    Default 99 Dakota Build

    Good morning all!

    I promised you I would update you on a build a few months ago; and, I've come to make good on that. Let's start on the with supercharger.

    IMG_5557.jpgIMG_5559.jpgIMG_5555.jpg

    Things I've still got to do:
    Gauges
    Fuel Pump
    MSD ignition stuff (Need help figuring out how you guys mount your coils. I got the biggest one (I'm not a smart man))
    MS3X install.

    You know, now that I post this, I realize it doesn't sound like much at all but I promise, it's been a pain and expensive the whole way!

    It'll be parallel and im running a nv3500 so no trans control. The plan is to swap the trans for a nv 4500 once the old one grenades

    Update:

    I've gotten everything installed but the fuel and am in search of help with the MS3X. I keep on hearing people say that they choose a setting in Tuner Studio and the sensors magically read correctly with the megasquirt. I, personally, am not seeing anything that lets me select Chrysler sensors. Do I just re calibrate everything? Any assistance is appreciated!

    As far as the MSD coil is concerned, I've had heat related failures.
    The truck I bought had one mounted in the traditional spot. Passenger side just above the first primary tube of the headers.
    Started getting misfire codes and the coil was super hot.

    Got rid of that one and mounted the next one with a homemade bracket on the inner fender well close to the firewall. Been there for a year and it seems much happier at this position..

    I've been running mine in the stock location too although with the HiPoTek coil mount and heat shield. https://stores.hi-potek.com/hipotek-...ota-1997-2003/
