Traveling in the middles east

I have Jeep srt 2014
Nothing modified apart from borla attack exhaust

I'm planning to travel from Doha ( Qatar ) to Amman ( Jordan ) using my car

It is about 2300 KM on way and back 4600 km
The road is pretty good apart from few bad roads outside the city. Otherwise it is a 4 lanes high ways

What do you guys think?
Will I get problems?
Heating problems due to long driving? Around 19 hours with family

Thank. You

You bought it to drive it, so drive it

I can imagine dust is an issue for that trip so i would have a spare OEM engine air filter if you feel the dust may be bad. I would not install it for the trip or tune for the trip.

Have fun on the drive!

Re: Traveling in the middles east

But doesn't tuning helps gear shifting and petrol intake ?

What is OEM engine ?

Again, tuning is not the answer to shifting problems per se. I am sure you can get a tune for MPG but I am pretty sure you would be the only customer requesting that their SRT be tuned for gas mileage. You may have bought the wrong vehicle if civility and MPG are tops on your list.
