Continuing the discussion on the TRX engine build, we suspect that the weak point of cylinder 3 on the Hellcat engine in the Ram TRX may be caused by issues with the supercharger or intake system, leading to airflow problems and an uneven distribution of air and fuel to the cylinders. Additionally, the firing order of the engine may be contributing to the problem, causing uneven combustion in cylinder 3.
These issues can lead to random pinging and knocking events as well as damage to the piston, cylinder wall, and rings. While it's uncertain whether these are the root causes of the problem, based on our analysis and findings, we suggest that these areas are potential culprits.
To address these issues, we have just received ported cylinder heads and installed new rods and pistons. We will continue to monitor the engine's performance and report back on any improvements we observe.
It's worth noting that identifying and addressing weak points in the TRX engine can be a complex and ongoing process that requires careful attention to detail and a commitment to ongoing maintenance and care. However, with the right modifications and attention, the Hellcat engine in the Ram TRX can be a powerful and reliable powerhouse that delivers impressive performance both on and off the road
