i have had a few dyno runs but he only does 4th gear and says 358 whp and we know thats not a true figure, si i was looking for a true reading and my mate whats to do his ML63 AMG as well.

thanks
ok had one in today mate,

4th gear is the best gear to do them in,

245kw at the wheels.

lots to come from these cars with a good intake and tune, they are so rich its not funny and lifting the air box gains 15kw..

Much of an increase in Torque?

Anyway i finally picked it up after a long and torturous process on Saturday night. These trucks are absolutely awesome!! Apart from a couple of small panel alignment issues I am completely wrapped with it.
Did you order off Waitara?

Re: Sydney SRT Club

Well done , and yep they run nice and rich thats for sure lol

ok, why is it consistent that the usa guys and tuners say 6th for the new 8 speed boxes?

just a bit lost on that. I am going to sonny at autowerks on monday and will be doing a 6th gear run so i should be able to get a comparison to see if its 4/6th that will get a true figure.
i pulled 264 kilowatts atw on my dyno run in 4th with the injen cai and before my kooks headers.
See how we go

Re: Sydney SRT Club

Because 95% of their dynos are inertia dynos not Eddie current dynos

Re: Sydney SRT Club

the dyno jet which is the common one in the USA do not use a electronic brake, they have a massive concrete filled roller that the car sits on and they measure how quick it can accelerate the roller to calculate the HP. generally they read 10-15% higher than our dynos which use a electronic brake to control the speed at which the car can accelerate.

Re: Sydney SRT Club

Hi guys, cage suggested I take a look at this thread. Interesting catching up on it all, I'm in the Hills as we'll. I'm just about to push the button on an order for an SRT once I am happy with the deal. Have a question for Snuke... Are they the stock Jeep sidesteps you had pictured with your sill plates?

Re: Sydney SRT Club

Snuke, just realised that image you posted was from ebay. So you may not have sidesteps. Anyone got any that they have an opinion on? The stock sills look very vulnerable, especially with a couple of energetic boys climbing in and out of the thing. I've also found the streps on my Territory very useful for washing the roof and loading up the roof bars with skis etc. They've gotta be discrete though as I could imagine anything too wide would really compromise the beautiful lines of the SRT.

If you are referring to the two pics I posted earlier in this thread, neither of those are mine. I do have side steps, but I don't have an SRT.
No side steps are stock, or do you mean genuine Mopar ones?

Now, if you are suggesting you will put side steps on your SRT, be prepared to have everyone try and scalp you for making such a suggestion.
If you do want them for actual practical purposes where some may have issues getting in without them, then have a look at this thread - 2014 GC SRT Sidesteps?
Also full of disgust, which links to this thread - Any recommendations for side steps for 2014 SRT where I suggest these discreet ones.

Re: Sydney SRT Club

Thanks Snuke. That looks tricky on the You Tube clip. Anyways, I thought I was living dangerously by mentioning steps on an SRT, but after having them on the Territory I think I'll miss them when washing the thing and on those occasions like going to the snow with the family etc. Yes, the roof pod will look crap but it's better than dumping wet gear in the cabin. I'm sure there's a heap of owners who cringe at the thought but I'd prefer some discrete steps on an SRT than drive a bus and have them look "more suited" to the car. On the subject of the tubular Mopar items, I'm not keen on the look of those... Whilst narrow they are pretty high which spoils the look, IMO. Surely there's something out there that fits the bill. If DCRSRT is watching, what did you end up doing?
