Re: Do any of you daily drive your SRT8?

I was surprised at how great the Volant sounds (without the top on the box), so I can only imagine what it's going to sound like with the Corsa. I had a borla s for a week, but the drone made me want to drive the truck off a cliff. Otherwise, a completely bad @$$ sound!

I had a Volant on my Jeep when I bought it. I did the take off the top thing. Sounded cool..... but made no sense. All you did was suck pure hot air from the engine bay. I took it off on the dyno with the hood open and picked up and astounding 22awhp. That right there was enough for me to get a BWoody. It will snap heads with the lid off, but I would reccommend it.

Re: Do any of you daily drive your SRT8?

One thing I've learned after I have my SRT8...
I had the idea of getting my jeep SRT8 and make it a garage queen, drive it very little to put as little miles as possible.
BUT... when I started driving this jeep it was just too much fun and is almost a year now that I had the jeep and the fun factor hasn't rubbed off. Many times I could be driving my wife's WJ and at the final second I'm saying... fck'it... I'm taking the SRT! .
Is just a blast to drive these amazing SRT vehicles every little chance you have, last thing it comes to my mind is MPG as the SPG (Smiles Per Gallon) beats it every time.
So what I've learned is to drive it and enjoy it as much as I can. I would feel bad seeing it just sitting there, this jeeps are not meant for that IMHO.
