    I received my recall to have the catalytic converters and 02 sensors replaced with a PCM flash. I have done a bit of digging into what the flash does. Apparently the original flash was causing the throttle body to close to soon when the car was shut down causing back pressure through the super charger. I understand this has been corrected now. You’d think they would have had that figured out before they released the recall....
    Of course when I contacted the dealer to have this done they informed me that the parts are on back order.

    Isn't that recall several years old? How was it not done previously?

    No, it’s new. The dealer hadn’t even heard of it

    After you mentioned it, I Googled it and came up with forum conversations about it dating back to 2017.

    That’s odd, when I bought the car nothing came up for any outstanding recalls. I was also reading a Hellcat forum that many people started getting their notices in June 2020. It affects model years 2015-2017.

    My mistake. The forum conversation I was looking at was recent. I was looking at the date the member had joined the forum.

    I guess your dealer has a better parts supplier than mine.

    Just because you got the RECALL
    Does NOT mean your dealer has the parts.
    Make sure you call 1st and MAKE SURE
