Ms1k!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just got back after installing it on my near stock CSRT (only mod is Mopar Intake and was Stage 1) and let me tell you... it IS as good if not better than everybody says it is! I was having so much fun that I forgot to test the 6900 or is it 7000 redline on it lol. 1st and 2nd gear honestly scared the crap out of me, I'm used to Stage 1 power in 1st and 2nd and it's fast but not even close to the torque from MS1k. The power is amazing but honestly my favorite feature might be the improved traction control. I can now floor it in 2nd and not just spin and bounce of the rev limiter, I can actually continue forward while I mash the gas and hold on to the wheel. Torque steer is still present but it just seems so much easier to control now. It's simply amazing how much Realtune has done with this flash, simply amazing. As for throttle response, it is wayyy easier to leave in 1st gear without bogging down and the smoothness in between shifts when just cruising is so awesome. I told myself this would be my last mod but now I definitely have to get a few more things..... like maybe an AGP FMIC when they are available again. I love driving this car all over again!!!

No problem man, you are going to love this mod! Best money I have ever spent. I still haven't had a chance to test out the new Redline lol not enough road! I can honestly say that MS1 was a huge upgrade, but going from MS1 to MS1K.... awe inspiring.

I just got back from really testing it and I blasted a 5.2 0-60 on the EVIC. It is insane, having torque steer in 3rd all the way to redline. Now I know I need new tires and suspension upgrades ASAP! Thank you Realtune!

I just installed MS1K on my totally stock(only a K&N drop-in and 1 step colder NGK Iridiums) CSRT4 yesterday and I have to say that going from bone stock to MS1K is a fantastic eye opener.I agree with you 100% on your findings and if anybody wants to start modding their CSRT4,MS1K should be your first mod,then you can start adding boltons like downpipes.catbacks,intakes etc.etc, and you won't be restricted by the computer when you hit a certain torque level like the stock and MS1 computers do.Thanks Aaron and the Realtune team and Dave at B&G for getting this product to market so us CSRT4 owners can really start to mod our cars.
