Re: 718hp Grand Cherokee SRT

Calling bullshit you could easy build over 700HP for 26k with a built trans.

Shit the Demon Performance has a kit that's 700 without trying

How fast would you expect? I think everyone gets a little warped by the timer built into the car like its the end all of 0-60 measurement.

Re: 718hp Grand Cherokee SRT

I think these numbers are definately skewed. To give you an idea...my truck with Ripp supercharger setup does 3.4 0-60mph all day long. On an AWD dyno my truck put down 567.7 AWD hp and 542 ft/lb torque. The 572 ft/lb torque they are claiming is probably pretty accurate...however the 718hp is a gimmick to get you all flustered and want to by their kit...only way that makes sense is that it's flywheel hp not at the wheels. Using my 567.7 dyno hp number...technically I can add in to use a number lets say 25% hp loss from the flywheel to the wheels and claim my truck is 709hp. Any by the way..I just sold my truck and removed the supercharger setup and it's for sale . Do you wanna spend $26k on their kit when you can have my Ripp vortech setup with only 3k miles on it for $5500. To me that would be a no brainer.

Took it to the track once..ran 11.8 which matched evic with a 3.4 0-60mph

Re: 718hp Grand Cherokee SRT

I realize it's a different setup but it's still forced induction. Screw type blower is supposed to give your grunt type power then centrifical blower so 0-60 can't be accurate. There are plenty of guys running whipple setups now and 3.9 0-60 and 718hp don't add up. It's a sales gimmick gaurunteed.

Re: 718hp Grand Cherokee SRT

Whipples make more torque earlier in the RPM than centrifugal right? That's what I remembered from the M3 scene 8 years ago.

Re: 718hp Grand Cherokee SRT

I'm with Mike.. He's pretty much the only guy here who has taken his blown jeep to the track and run 11's and has backed up his evic... It's a shame he's had to dismantle that beast to sell it.. His jeep is (was) the real deal...
