To be honest, didn't know it took that many tunes to get it dialed in Keith?

If you think for one second that a single tune or 10 tunes will have your truck running like stock then sell it and buy a Prius and drive in the slow lane. Your building a performance minded truck it will not be stock, it will not idle stock, it will not run stock, it will have surging at times, it will run funny at times, it will be a dam monster at times, it will need to be set and left alone all the time. This is not your carbureted 350 solid lifter type engine and never will be. Itís driving me crazy watching this tread and all the confusing info and basic misinformation coming from it to basically scare away anyone from modding there truck itís like watching CNN
I agree with Keith, it often takes time to have it run the way you want it to. In the last couple of days I have posted three times explanations on how to proceed and steps needed. Then I remember all the similar posts I have made over the years and erase them simply because it is a waste of time. There are more than a few engines on the forum that have radical camshafts that idle and run as they should. I'm afraid Stu's woes once again are self inflected.

Guess I expected Keith to get the tune done quickly. From what and how everyone was talking about 05 tuning, that's how I kinda per-sieved it. Marty's (KRC) tune was done so quickly. Thought Keith was doing the same tuning.

Now that I can see the bigger tuning picture here... Not sure where to go from here with the 05. Just seems like a never ending tuning problem with this 394 turbocharged Hemi. Many others having the same kind of a Hemi build have given up due to the tuning problems. This might be my time to step away from it as well. Will take a break away from the 05 until I figure out what to do with it.

My recommendation is tune it yourself.. that way you know the tune and and can make it as fine as you like... HP Tune has alot of support for its users. You can download your current CMR tune using the HP suite and it will automatically convert the CMR tune to HP format. Keep this as your backup tune. Then adjust the tune to suit yourself. The only drawback is you have no one but yourself to blame for what you have.

Put a Holley full stand alone on it. Start the truck and click self tune. Let it idle and then drive it and you will be pretty damn close to set. After that a few adjustments and your golden

I put it in neutral once the truck is stopped, to stop the engine hunting/surging.
It is what it is... Just going to roll with it for now. One thing is for sure. Will have to add some weight to the back of the truck. About 70-80lbs should do it.

Bump your idle up to about 800-850 rpms. I had to do that when mine was boosted. It would stall every single time without it. Also do you have all your o2 sensors plugged in? If I didnt have my rear o2s plugged in, air fuel was all over, when rgb eyes were plugged in it was much more consistent.

Or sell it and get a diesel, throw some head studs in and crank it up

Just set it up how you want, an just let keith do his thing stop alliterating things to your build. I mean really what do you have to lose at this point in your build to just let keith tune it. You should just drop it off to him lol
