Vipertoad White 2014 Build

Hey guys, just got our lightly used 2014 Bright White SRT8 on Tuesday night.

We had it shipped down from Nebraska. Previous owner built custom trailers for racecars, so I know this car was well taken care of

It had the following mods done to it upon arriving:

Stainless Works Headers w/ Hi-Flow Cats
Stainless Works Cat-Back Exhaust
Eibach Lowering Springs
Debadged "Jeep" and "Grand Cherokee" emblems on hood and doors

----------------------------------

I've installed my first mod, which is the custom matte black SRT front plate. I plan to do many things to this car, but for now, here are some pictures of how she sits. Enjoy!

Re: Vipertoad White 2014 Build

Today I got a few goodies in the mail:

Injen Powerflo Intake
Diablosport InTune

Only took about 30 minutes to install the intake. I ordered the polished because I wanted an intake for the tune/dyno sesh tomorrow, and it was available for Prime overnight shipping on Amazon. I have a wrinkle black version on the way to replace the chrome one

Impressions of intake: Sounds super nice. Definitely has a much louder growl on the gas, very happy with the sound. I would say the pedal feels more responsive as well. Whether gas mileage is better, only time will tell. Power wise, I haven't noticed any significant gain, but 5-10whp won't be felt in the seat of the pants regardless.

The inTune took about 1.5 hours to do all the updates, and configure the PCM, etc. Finally got it to work, and sent over my stock file to Johan (diablotoona) for a tune.

Should have the tune in first thing tomorrow morning, and then I have a dyno appointment at 9am. Can't wait to see what it puts down!







After installing the intake and downloading my stock tune file to send over to Johan, I installed the CLSTech DRL Activation Kit.

WOW is that kit bright! Almost too bright, I hope it doesn't blind anyone! Pictures to come of that.

I also installed SRT badges on the driver and passenger door, same way 14StormTrooper has them. I will be plastidipping all of the SRT badges and rear Jeep badge black this weekend.

Will update with videos and dyno results tomorrow!

Re: Vipertoad White 2014 Build

Well dyno day went pretty good. Car put down about 360awhp/350awtq, in the "auto" setting. Pulled the ABS fuse to ensure no problems with the pull. The Johan tune feels awesome, and I still have to send him a log so he can tweak it a bit, but the car is super smooth and feels 200% more responsive.


Yesterday, I added "SRT" badges to the doors instead of the "GRAND CHEROKEE" that is normally there. Today I plastidipped all the emblems on the car, to get rid of those hideous chrome emblems. Here are a few pictures:
