Honestly I don't miss it that much. Granted I do have a boosted S2000 project I am working on as well which helps.

Haha good to know I'm not the only one that has done a similar transition. Do you miss the evo at all? I'd imagine you miss it a little, I hope I don't miss the STi too much.

Don't waste your money on bolt-ons. The only way you get a gain from these vehicles is by supercharging.

Not true at all. Bolt ons with a corresponding tune with gain you some power. I would say enough to put it well over 500 crank

Re: Looking to get a 2016 Jeep SRT

Okay, my bad. Let's put it a lil differently. Cost to power ratio not worth it in my opinion. Intake and exhaust don't do a damn thing but make it sound good and to be honest you don't need a tune for intake and exhaust.

I previously had a supercharged challenger SRT and before I went FI I had done all the bolt ons, from kooks long tubes to intake to exhaust and a Diablo canned tune. All the money spent for a few ponies.

Went with a Kenne bell and boom! Oh yeah hella power. Save your money for a supercharger if you really want to feel a real gain in HP. Some long tubes MAYBE to go along with it.

I see guys spending on long tubes when they're not even supercharged or thinking of going the FI route. Why? These SRT headers flow pretty well.

Anyway, this is my opinion and I sure as hell don't have anything to sell you so no bias here.

It's not just fi that benifits from headers. A good cam will as well. But again with the tune to go with it.

The reason a lot of 6.4 guys don't see big improvents is due to the tune already there and the fact that Chrysler has their calibrations on lock down. Think about it, look at the gm and Ford world. Both company's have their calibrations open to the world that's why they generally take better to mods and tuning.

Re: Looking to get a 2016 Jeep SRT

I've searched around for a little in regards to tuning and doesn't seem like there is a reliable tuning option available for the Jeep SRT, am I right? If that's the case I don't think I'll be looking at tuning.

Re: Looking to get a 2016 Jeep SRT

Guys with full bolt ons and tunes have run 12.5/12.6 and 0-60 in high 3s in optimal weather.

Guys bone stock have run 12.6 and 0-60 in high 3s in optimal weather.

I've seen bone stock guys running 0-60 in 3.8 in Houston in perfect weather.

If you want real gains in all weather, get a blower or a turbo, and build up the engine. I did my bolt ons knowing I wouldn't gain much of anything noticeable. But I love the sound of the exhaust and the performance consistency of the only true CAI on the market...so it was worth it!

So we agreed to get rid of both of our cars. We need something that is practical, awd, sporty and automatic. The Jeep SRT seems to fit the bill quite nice, which I will be trading in my STi for.



1)Are there any issues that I should be made aware of? Like a common defect or something that has occurred a few times? Looking at a 2016 Jeep SRT Night Edition.



2)How much power is the stock motor capable of producing reliably? Not really familiar with these motors. My current car has every bolt-on and from the looks of it the srt doesn't have an overwhelming aftermarket selection but enough to satisfy me and not dump all my money on modifications.



Currently thinking about getting these mods later in the spring/summer

-AFE Sprint Booster

-AFE Headers

-AFE Catback

-AFE Intake



Thank you, your input is greatly appreciated!
Welcome from Downtown Manhattan!!!

Common defects: Fender flares that are unsticking from the body and the fuel door becoming misaligned and separating from the back. Oh and the wheel alignment being off leading to the Jeep pulling to one side.

Other than that, nothing really bad from the factory!

Dont waste money on a sprint booster.

Get a intune and a new pcm, along with a CMR tune from one of the notable tuners.

Practical in New York would be a something more compact and AWD.
Eh. I dont need it here in Manhattan but its what I want.

What stock jeep ran a 12.6?! I ran 13.19 in pretty good air at super fast atco. Granted I could've lighten her up a bit, maybe 100 lbs, but better than 12.8? I can't see that as possible but who knows. I hope it's true!

OP. Congrats! We just had 30.5" of snow here in queens ny and I had no problems when using snow mode. I have the four season tires with 17800 miles and no issues at all. I have an Injen CAI and gt huas exhaust with x pipe. I haven't been back to the track yet nor any before and after Dyno numbers but the butt dyno, though not very accurate, feels like a picked up some torque in the mid range. I did both mods at once. The power to $ for mods on these isn't great but the sound alone for me was worth it. Good luck with your new Jeep!
