Need Help ASAP!!!!!!

So my hemi's in the shop right now. One of the problems is when I crank it on a cold start and put it in gear it acts like it wants to die out. The dealership is blaming this on my Taylor Shorties. I had a ASE Master tech and intructions off this website when I did them. I KNOW I did them right. Anyways there saying this is whats causing the problem. Can anyone let me know if they have had this problem and what the cause was so I can tell them its not my wires. I told all this to the guy and he said I should have put factory back on and then didnt believe me when I told him I got the plugs and wires from a Dodge Dealership. If anyone has any help please let me know ASAP!!.

Also I put it in for the trans gettin stuck in 4 low. Does anyone know what this may also be the cause of? It only did it 2 times but I want to get it fixed before warranty goes out. Sorry this was posted in the wrong forum I just need some help before tom. when I gotta talk to the service advisor that called my alternator a generator. Whatever, sorry I was so long winded thanks for yalls time.

IThere are tons of guys here with shorties. I have never had a problem with mine. Been on for about 30K miles now.

Hate to say it but there is only one way to find out. Hopefully you kept the factory wires. You may have to swap them out to find out for sure. I really don't think the wires are the problem. That is very rare that you find a broke plug wire.

Are you throwing codes?

I'd speculate the getting stuck in 4wd is because of the short wires.

Mopar puts shorty wires on its own 5.7 Hemi crate motor. Blaming the problem on your shorty wires is a cop-out on the dealership's part. I've had my Taylor shorty wires in place for thousands of miles with no problem.

I totally agree...the absence of length is preventing the intended reactive shift assistance of the flux capacitor.....

you need to get your truck, and tell them your going to take it to a dodge dealer, you must have drove into the wrong shop, because they no nothing about dodge.
