'14 low mile owners, do you have all 470hp?

First off, I took delivery last week and the jeep has been a blast thus far. I'm trying to get through the initial break in period and rack up some quick miles. As of today, there are about 275 on her.

I noticed something strange in my SRT performance pages. When I am in the "engine" menu, I notice the HP from roll on pulls only tops out at about 425-430 hp and at the very top of the rpm range. Only roll ons so far, I haven't launched it yet.

I'm not sure if what I am experiencing is normal for new '14s or not.

Am I missing out on 40-50hp? Is this something you guys also noticed? I wouldn't be worried normally, but the app is clearly topping out in the 425-430 range and NEVER shows higher.

(Already did a battery disconnect )

I can't say that I messed with the performance pages too much yet, but I did see my HP go up to 460 under heavy acceleration once. I haven't put the pages back up since then. I will try it out today later and let you know.

Awesome! I can almost just see that fuel gauge moving down in the picture!

I'll let you in on a little secret. If you become a Premium Jeep Garage Member, you also get a special code that you can enter that will unlock the horsepower governors on this vehicle vehicle granting you the remainder of the 470 flywheel HP.

Or you can wait until your engine breaks in. I also noticed my MPG is steadily increasing from an initial 12mpg to 16mpg and I only have 550 mixed miles on the clock.

Ha, I'll get on that

I'm thinking most of these "concerns" will go away at higher miles.

Curious to know if there is hard coding in the ECU to govern the engine for initial miles. I highly doubt there is a magical "unlock" that happens internally once a milage threshold has been achieved.

Re: '14 low mile owners, do you have all 470hp?

these really start to wake up the more miles you out on them. My 13' was at 7-8k miles when I traded it and it was starting to become a beast.. The more miles I put on this 14'...the more beastly it becomes! FYI-I have driven an 8k mile 14' that ran a 3.9 0-60 time
