driving it like I stole it!

Finally after a bit over 4k miles I feel my 3.6 is broken in pretty good. I know it's not a made for speed...but getting smoked by a beefed up mini-cooper is so not cool!!..lol I know, it's a six..

I think I need to start bugging the aftermarket mfg's again.. at 60-80 mph is about where the suspension reaches it limit for me on Cali streets.

I tried the down/upshifting and it takes a bit to get accustom to it.

Anyone changed suspension parts on their 2011 Laredo? or did anything to tune the engine?

Re: driving it like I stole it!

Wait until the SRT arrives, and trade your 3.6l for the SRT. I don't think you need it, but if you want to drive fast and thinking about ugrading supension, tuning the engine.. dont forget the breaks.

Re: driving it like I stole it!

Don't feel bad because most cars will smoke WK2 3.6 (even HEMI) of the line. Just enjoy the ride. You will smoke them in the snow storm (if you ever get one in CA).
Chrysler did great job designing new luxury body but looks like used left over parts from old models to put the powertrain together. Someone was saying in other forum that Penta motor is based on old MB design project that they never finished. I am not sure if it is true but almost all imports today in same class and close to $50K price have modern V6 motors with turbo or DI.
