Trade in For HellCat or Mod current SRT to pull 0-60 in 3 Sec

I love my SRT but i'm addicted for getting more Horespower.. I want,need,crave more HP.. Someone told me if I where to get the Hellcat you won't be able to get more out of it. Where as my Current jeep I can get a supercharger or twin turbos put in to achieve greater then the Hellcat.

What are your thoughts in this? What would you do? trade in or invest in your current Jeep SRT WK2 ?

Re: Trade in For HellCat or Mod current SRT to pull 0-60 in 3 Sec

well if youre crazy about getting as much HP as you can, it doesnt really make sense to trade for a hellcat if you cant get anything more out of it. i guess it ultimately comes down to 1) what year your current SRT is, 2) features in the hellcat that your SRT doesnt have, and 3) how much of a performance difference you can really milk out of your SRT compared to what the hellcat would have

Re: Trade in For HellCat or Mod current SRT to pull 0-60 in 3 Sec

I hope you realize that it will cost you close to or more than $40k to get to your jeep to hellcat equivalent or better...

Forged motor- $6k to $12k (depending on how crazy you get)
Tranny- $5k + install
Transfer Case- $3k + install
Twin Turbo- $12k + install and tuning
Driveshafts- $2k
Big Brakes- $8 to $10k + install

Total- $36k to $44k (not including install and tuning)


PROBLEMS:
TUNING- all tuning done on Jeeps are walk arounds and not true tuning since the factory computers are still locked and Chrysler has not unlocked them for anyone. Your Trackhawk will be factory tuned for performance with a warranty to (hopefully) back it up.
WARRANTY- not sure if anyone has had any issues with warranties thus far but safe to say that you might have issues depending on your dealership and how/what happened to your Trackhawk.


Tuning alone makes me want to get a Trackhawk but a twin turbo setup sounds incredible. I guess it comes down to how crazy you want to get with your Jeep or how much you can get for your Jeep on resale.

I'd be inclined to take issue with "you can't get more horsepower out of the trackhawk".

All it takes is cubic money and the ability to shake off Mopar warranty and a bit of surfing on the aftermarket builder sites.

Re: Trade in For HellCat or Mod current SRT to pull 0-60 in 3 Sec

I think I'll withhold until some real photos/stats etc come out on the Hellcat. Certainly sounds appealing, especially with a warranty to back it up. With that said I'm still in love with my 14, only has 10,000 miles on it and is modded up how I like while not doing much that would void the warranty. I'll consider trading in for a hellcat once the time comes closer, depending on how the resale on our trucks is doing at that point. Right now if I traded I would take a bath I'd assume even though my Jeep is mint, just too soon.

Oh pardon me, trackhawk. Because if you want to go to the track, a 5k lb jeep is your first thought. Should call it the 0-60 Hawk.


Pretty dumb name. I always see Hawks at the track. It's awesome.

Re: Trade in For HellCat or Mod current SRT to pull 0-60 in 3 Sec

IM WITH CARBON ON THIS ONE... I SAY WAIT AND SEE WHAT THE TRACKHAWK HAS TO OFFER. IF YOU HAVE THE COIN TO DROP THEN SURE MOD YOURS UP... BUT MY THOUGHT IS ALWAYS, WELL THE WARRANTY GOES OUT THE DOOR NOW AND IF YOU RUN INTO ISSUES IT CAN EITHER BE A MONEY PIT OR A NEVER ENDING BATTLE.

WHERE AS THE TRACKHAWK WILL COME FAST AS HELL... PROBABLY MORE POWER THAN WE HAVE ROADS FOR HERE AND IT WILL COME WITH A WARRANTY... SO YOU NEVER REALLY HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT ANYTHING YA KNOW.

NOW OBVIOUSLY ITS YOUR MONEY AND YOU SPEND IT THE WAY YOU PLEASE BUT SINCE YOU ASKED FOR ADVISE I WOULD SO JUST HOLD OFF AND SEE WHAT THIS TRACKHAWK IS ALL ABOUT. YOUR GOING TO SPEND 115k (CAR AND MODS) TO MAKE THIS THING RUN HIGH hp WITH NO WARRANTY.. NOW IS IT A DD? OR IS IT GOING TO BE YOUR WEEKEND FUN CAR??? BUT IMHO I COULD FIND SOMETHING ALOT BETTER THAN A JEEP TO DROP 115-120K ON.

I would have handed a dealer $5k to replace my motor under warranty...

Re: Trade in For HellCat or Mod current SRT to pull 0-60 in 3 Sec

I'd wait for the hellcat powered jeep. That twin screw with AWD is going to be a monster. Mid 11's in negative da IMHO. From the factory! Amazing if they do this. I wonder what my 2015 with 8000 miles will be worth on a trade and hopefully the gt haus and x pipe bolt up to the hawk
