But before you decide for sure go test drive an srt jeep. Doesn't hurt to try it and it's a lot of fun to drive. I've driven a Shelby gt500 and a camaro zl1 a gtr and the jeeps are the most fun. The gt500 is second. Haven't driven a srt challengar yet tho.

5.3 ls4 gtp or the 3.8 s/c v6? I walked a 3.8 s/c monte carlo intimidator ss a few months before I psc'd. Guy would not let me pass him. Every time I get next to him to pass he would speed up. So on one attempt to pass he speeds up like usual but instead of me backing off, I just stayed in it. Started pulling on him from 90 lol and I didnt back off till 117. By then he was way back. So I accomplished a few things in one shot. 1, got around him to continue my trip back up to campbell. 2, put a punk in his place. 3, made him feel bad about his car. He didnt try me again....

The 5.3 is the GXP mine is a 3.8 II s/c. Yea stock it's nothing special now a days but like I said I've put a pretty penny into it. Last person to try messing with me was an 05-09 gt mustang. Beat him from a roll and from a dig. He stopped trying to race me after I beat him on the roll when neither of us had wheel spin. My GTP beats my hemi all day

K Gotcha. That is true tho, with a little money they become little devils and surprise bigger faster cars. I think tho he still should have walked me tho. I pulled on him in 3rd gear and the gears in mine are waaaay too long. I was in third most of that run. dropped into 3rd for the take off power @75 and hit 4th @115.

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

I don't think the Monte Carlo ss is supercharged actually. Even if it is they only put out 240 at the crank even though they weight like 1000 lbs less the hemi's in our cars have crazy torque and a decent amount of hp. Like 330 or something like that. And no matter how much I hate losing even though it's to my own car hearing the supercharger paired with the loud CAI whistle speeding up to me and then just hearing the dual super 10 flowmasters as my gf flys past me is a beautiful thing knowing that beast sleeps in my driveway. Hahaha

they are S/C bro. 2000-03 was S/C for the ss and was badged as S/C. as for weight tho, I got about 600 pounds less then you and 800 or so on the monte.

I do agree however on the noise it makes when flooring the loud pedal.

Oh idk why I thought they we N/A putting 240. I wanna s/c my jeep but people keep saying turbo is the better application for them. How come? I'm a red light warrior wouldn't s/c be better for the immediate boost?

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

Honestly I love my fiances little Lt model. I wouldn't mind getting the rs but you see so many like I told my buddy might as well get the SS those are not rare but not everybody drives them in LA cause of gas but I'm not racing it lol

yeah n/a was like 180 to 200 depending on year....

S/C would be better for the off the line take off power as you don't need to wait for boost to build as the S/C is supplying boost on demand.

Pro's:
+Wider and flatter power band
+immediate boost
+simpler and easier to maintain

Con's
-takes power to make power, S/C is a huge parasitic draw on the motor
-clearly obvious your S/C if you want to be a sleeper
-Space can be a little tight depending on what S/C type you go with

Turbos make better peak power for the long haul. ive always seen turbo cars beat out S/C in trap speeds even if it looses.

Pro's
+Better power when boost builds
+better fuel mileage
+Less stressfull on the engine, there IS ZERO parasitic draw on the engine
+Makes more power then a similar boost level from S/C

Con's
-more maintenance needed
-may not be as ring land freindly
-trickier to tune

Cost of both setups is debatable, but there are more options with turbo setup. there is a hand full of S/C kits. there are a handful of T/C kits too, but you have more turbo sizes available and better routing options

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

OH almost forgot, S/C is more sensitive to heat soak, power levels come down when they are hot!
