Re: Mods for new WK8

It would look the same, if painted, as long as you could snap it on just as easy. It shouldn't be too hard to make one out of FB or CF, but I don't have it in hand yet so no idea. I'd rather just buy a 2nd one, paint it, and then have both, or sell one if I didn't like it.

That will be my first mod when I get a wk2. In fact I just wrote down the part number tonight in preparation of maybe needing it.

HANDLE, Liftgate: part number 68083083AA

Re: Mods for new WK8

It's not the "handle" it's the liftgate body trim, no?

Am I incorrect in thinking that a CAI will increase throttle response?

I added one to my Ram with a 5.7 and my seat of the pants dyno said there was an increase in throttle response. Totally non-scientific, but I thought I'd mention it.

Re: Mods for new WK8

IMO, it was a placebo. Especially with all of the throttle body/intake/etc. are completely electronic now.
