Re: Test drove a 2012 WK2 3.6.......

As a 3.7 owner with more or less the same setup as |||2for3||| I'll say we have no room to be throwing stones at the new 3.6 or making claims about how powerful our hampsters are....power adders or not. Lifted with 32"s, I think I could beat my 3.7 down the 1/4 mile running on foot. This thread is ridiculous! lol.

Re: Test drove a 2012 WK2 3.6.......

What a waste of clicks on the keyboard.

Somebody said that if I don't like the response, don't post the thread. I simply said that I expected cry babies rather if I made that statement in the original post or not.

Once again, other members on this forum have posted in other threads about how you guys are cry babies and this simply proves my point.

It was a friendly joke/insult that was not intended to go this far.

You can continues to write another paragraph if you must. I'm enjoying myself. It's not that serious.

I base my lift and tires off of yours before I installed them.

I expected some responses I got but I did not expect some of them to take it so seriously.

And what similar performance mods do you have that I do.

Re: Test drove a 2012 WK2 3.6.......

No power adders yet. I'm sort of interested in the ported throttle body, but not completely sold on the power vs. cost benefit just yet. I'm ok with my WK being a turtle....you get used to it. I rarely get to open it up for any long stretch of road anyway being in Philly. I'd just be racing from one traffic light to the next.

Or racing to the nearest parking space. I grew up around South Philly. I know how it is. I want a Cheese Steak.

That's where I'm at now. Had friends in town last week and was forced to go to both Pat's and Geno's so they could compare. hahah. You're spot on about parking too.
