Like a dog returns to its vomit

I was a big Speed Freaks on JU guy in the early 2000's. Had a 5.9 that was cammed, stalled and all the good stuff. Got frustrated and sold it. Kept coming back to jeeps. Back again.

Went:
5.9 03-06
TJ 06 (77 days!)
E320 06-08
WK V6 08-10
Accord 10-13
E92 335xi 13-16
WK2 16+

Picked up a 2014 WK2 Limited w 16k miles on it last week. Hemi naturally. Now theres family and dogs, so the E92 wasn't cutting it. Is stock for now, may consider some light mods in the future.

Its actually crazy. Yes the 5.9 was the pre SRT but its more of a hemi equivalent now. Stock the 5.9 was a rocket at the time. Now the 5.7 has 50% more power, weighs 1400 lbs more and gets 50% better MPG and is about as fast, stock for stock. I averaged 13 mpg in the 5.9, could get 17 on a good day (in 2wd and with K&N, ECU, M1, TB, headers, open exhaust) and this 5.7 so far is averaging 19, with the first 200+ miles at almost 23.

I didnt go SRT for about 3 reasons - couldnt afford the one I wanted (wanted one w a 8 speed), wouldnt be as fast as the BMW (went 12.2 @ 115 with ECU tune only) and at 5300 lbs these arent nimble. The 5.7 makes a great sound, drives comfy and has urgency below 75 mph.
