Hi from west Phila

Hi everyone! It's my first Jeep and it's a GC 2010 5.7 Limited inferno red.
What a ride I am hooked since the day I tested a year ago and only now I am thinking to tune it.
I am reading like crazy every forum but pointers are welcome to learn more on where to start.
Let me know if you recommend any post in particular.

Re: Hi from west Phila

Welcome

The easiest and cheapest ones to always start off with are as follows ...

tint the front windows
Bwoody Cold Air Intake 4"
Diablo Tuner (will make a huge difference)
HID's are alwys a must, if you don't have the projectors those are badass as well can be picked up on ebay
tinted LED tails
suspension upgrade (upgrading shocks to bilstein and if you like to lower than some springs on there)
definitely sway bar upgrade to the SRT with the non SRT bwoody sway bar links

boy the list goes on forever but this is where I would start looking at and do it one by one as time allows

hope this helps

Re: Hi from west Phila

Thank you. It matches the list I am compiling reading about what you guys have and I'd like.

Does anyone live in the Philly metro area so that I can exchange a PM or two on tuning shops, locations, ec for some of the most challanging setups.

Re: Hi from west Phila

I'm in South Philly, but don't know much about tuning since I have the craptastic 3.7 engine.

The best way a lot of the 5.7 and 6.1 owners have done, is buy a diablo predator, and have the master of tuning Johan at Diablo load a custom tune for your car. That's the proven and safe route that a lot of people have done

Or you can look for a dyno shop that has 4 wheel if u have 4x4 ... and do some pulls on your own and see what you can log and tweak it accordingly. That of course requires some knowledge but a good mopar performance shop should be able to help you out on that as well. This is the more pricier route but guaranteed to make it custom to what you want.
