Talk About Anything - WK1/SRT8

who knows, not everything is worth a separate thread/section.

sometimes you just want to talk about anything SRT8- ya know. or at least i do.

(not everything pertains to a Garage area settings- IMO)

so i thought, hey maybe. who knows..





MAYBE A TOPIC TITLE CHANGE TO " TALK ABOUT ANYTHING WK-SRT8 "

Re: General Discussion Area - WK1/SRT8

Talk to me about a 180* t-stat. Is it just a drop in and forget about it or do I need to change some settings in my PCM?

if you change something like the temp settings- def contact your tuner for a revision of your tune.


speaking about cooler temps- 55* today- perfect for the JEEP SRT8!!

she loves cool weather-

I am running 100% stock right now. Well, until this weekend but only switching out the spark plugs to NGK's laser platinum and a drop in K&N air filter. No modified tune at this point.

Do you think I would need to switch my stock tune because of the t-stat or just if I was running richer?

Re: General Discussion Area - WK1/SRT8

honestly im no expert - but if your asking me specifically...

im going to step back a year or so from my own personal experience on just the "tune" aspect..

first 3 months i didnt have a Custom "vendor" tune.... BOY WAS I MISSING OUT!!!
--no seriously. immediately after the tune- the beast was THAT MUCH BETTER, FASTER,ETC. i was completely beyond belief- a simple tune from "the TOONA" made such a difference. especially 1st and 2nd gear- lightning!

basically what im trying to get at is a stock SRT8 is daym fast but just wait until you wake her up some more with a tune. TRUST ME!

soo, if youre asking me then yes, i would get a custom tune and def tell him about the mods youve done, even if its a just a T-stat,CAI, etc. i know i would. but thats just if your asking me.

Re: General Discussion Area - WK1/SRT8

Thanks for your help. I do not plan on going too crazy with it but a simple tune is on the list.

You for sure need a tune to realize the benefits of a 180* T-stat. You can buy a Diablo Predator and go through the motions that way, but I would recommend the Trinity. If you want to perfect a tune, the Trinity is so much better for data logging. Definitely use Johan (Diablotoona) as he is great with our rigs. You will poop your pants the first time you drive it after Tooning!!!

Re: General Discussion Area - WK1/SRT8

Definitely get a tune, it will wake up your rig like you would not believe.
