Bwoody CAI , not sure what kind of exhaust i'll put in since i'm not happy with the stock exhaust sound. TB is worthless without headers put in..

None of theses bolt on mods will void warranty, and if the dealer challenges that they have to prove that the mods is a direct source of the problem in hand.

What's the best time to use launch? I'm scared to use it (never used it yet myself) like I mean on a long straight stretch of pavement? I'm just scared I'll hit a bump or a curve and lose control... And how is the launch button? Is it pretty intense? What's the best option to do it with? Track mode? Sport mode? Auto??? TIA!!!!!!!!
Love this site

Don't stress yourself too much about the launch. There's a lot of power that you're handling, but once you've stomped on her a few times, you'll get used to it quick. Yes, a nice quiet, straight, smooth road out in the country (away from any cops) will be the best to try it out.

I started off in Auto and moved my way to Sport then Track modes after getting used to the power. I didn't find any pull to the left or right, so I didn't scare myself at all when opening 'er up. Ok, maybe I peed myself a little the first time! So much power!!

Launch mode is simple. Press the launch button with your foot on the brake and when it tells you to in the center console, let off the brake and enjoy the ride!

Re: A few questions about my 14 SRT

Thank you so much! I've had her for a few months now, but 5 of it was winter, so I'm pretty exited for summertime!! Been impatiently waiting to try out the launch to. But I'm definitely going to make sure I get a really good feel of my baby first. Thanks again

No worries. I'm still waiting to put my summers back on so I can really start to enjoy her. As always in Edmonton, spring takes a while to show up!!
