The ultimate mod. I can't wait to hear the results.

You've made a good point. My son has a RAM 2500 with a Cummins diesel. He added a larger turbo & other bolt on performance bits. The truck was dynoed at around 700HP & 1100 ft/lb torque. He found internal parts started failing due to the increased power. He's had to change the drive shaft, couplings and torque converter to name a few to handle the power & torque. The truck has be performing flawlessly now that the drive train has been modified.

I had the luxury of picking mine up as their shop is only a little over an hour away. Anyway..brought it home and semi unboxed everything and so far I like what I see. The materials used are high quality not cheap overseas junk. NGK iridium plugs (by the way I learned something new today..did you know that are SRT's have 16 spark plugs?), Siemens 80lb injectors, Diablosport T1000 for tuning, etc. all the welds on the piping are nice and smooth and the intercooler is a real piece of art. Can't wait to see how it looks behind the blacked out grill. I am a DYI guy and will be doing the install myself. According to the directions and guys at his shop it's probably 5-8 install time depending on your automotive skills. Was hoping to start on the install this weekend but already have plans with the family for the holiday weekend. Gonna start on the simple stuff like changing injectors, plugs, etc after work a few days next week. If all goes well, setting aside next Saturday and Sunday for the remainder of the install. I will try to take a bunch of pics and offer up any shortcuts or hints to make the installation easier if I run across them. Any questions, feel free to ask.

That's right - So far our SHOP SRT has yielded 530RWD-WHP and 493AWD-WHP. That means we're seeing a real world 8% loss (-/+) in AWD mod.... We originally tested in RWD (not to be shady), we thought you guys wanted to see HP numbers.... In reality its a 140hp(-/+) gain over stock either way you look at it.

At the moment - we have a NA SRT at the shop with ARH-Headers, GTAuto exhaust, B-Woody Cold-Air intake and Diablo. It yielded 350AWD-WHP . With this vehicle we hope to demonstrate the RIPP WHP gain from mod'd to boosted. Which is why we say the verdict is still out on mods in our opinion and literally the reason we show the value of our kit in WHP form.... Mods in our opinion should be fun and deliver and immediate pleasure from the purchase to the end user experience.... THAT is ultimately our goal. We've been fielding calls from end users who have installed similar mods to our current (clients) in house tester and they have percevibly been let down. It boils back to the previous thread, where the once owner of an SRT went full out and was very let down, he then sold the vehicle and bought a .... Nissan. That's BS to us... Mods should back their HP levels up, not just be there soaking up space and capitol for the sake of being there (right?).

Why do you take the position you're a downer - it is what it is...

This is correct guys - we're going to be limiting the out of the box power to keep things safe right now. As we all mature and understand that there are mechanical limits to the engine that we are all collectively not interested in touching right now, we are dialed in at 4-6psi peak with a medium sized compressor. There will be plenty of time to collectively grow and build up (for those that choose to). Thankfully, a lot of the 5.7-6.4 has already been mapped out and we already have a 1 year growth plan in both compressor and engine components... Josh at HHP is already building a 6.4 and ordered a Tuner's package and soon we'll see those numbers...

But first things first, lets get all you guys running soundly.

1100lbs/ft of torque - Breaks everything - We don't think we're gonna be close to that. But again, this applies to the above position. We want to be the rational kit and then offer the options to grow.

14Stormtroopers Kit ships Tuesday - Mike took his kit because he's close and we wanted the end user install experience close. We also dialed in our packing sheet with him, he's a lot closer if something is missing (but it looks well sorted)

The reality is on we've been on back order with our JK kits and 30 kits shipped between Thursday and Friday - Mike can attest we were swamped.

There are 11 other Pre-Production SRT kits shipping all over the country over the next 10 days - They have been targeted for climate and elevation - Our next batch will likely be ready in about 20-30 days. As end user experience starts to circle back .

The 5.7 kits are still being dialed in - We feel there are some internal tuning speed bumps we are working through - We have the Durango in house sorting them out and the 5.7 GC is driving around and reporting with logs.

Thanks for giving us the opportunity guys, we look forward to meeting/exceeding your expectations. Have a great weekend....

Yep!

BTW, I didn't mention what he does with all that power. Here's a pic of his truck in action.



He's "retired" from competition now, since he ran out of competitive trucks to race in his class.

His truck has given me a real appreciation of what turbo's can do. Achieving 530RWD-WHP and 493AWD-WHP for the 6.4 L is great.

I know that my first 2006 Jeep 6.1 SRT8 had 16 plugs, but I'm not sure about the 5.7, because it was never used in a SRT product.
