I got my TB back from thefastman, installed it, and connected up the BWoody CAI. It sounds like there's a Hoover on the front of my truck. Currently working on a washer fluid tank alternative as the one in the CAI kit leaves much to be desired. Also picking my Borla ATAK up from the powder coater tonight.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 SRT today?

I took the vinyl off my hood last night. I think I am much more satisfied with it now.

Got my HID fogs installed from black ops. I'll post some pics when the sun goes down. Also what do you guys think about wrapping the rear brow in black? I think with my smoked out rears it would tie in nicely.

I think it could look good...and if not, just pull it off. Vinyl is cheap

Re: What did you do to your WK2 SRT today?

Productive day today;

Installed Hawk Performance Ceramic pads all around. I'm very happy, a bit less initial bite at slow speeds (a good thing since the stock pads were grabby) with a very linear feel, virtually no dust and quiet as a church mouse, BIG SMILES.

Note to those installing Hawk pads, you will need to remove the low pad feeler tab on the inside front pad. The factory pads only have the feeler on the outside pad and if you don't remove it in the inside pad it won't drop all the way in. Hawk delivers 4 identical pads so 2 need to be modified.

Replaced rock hard, worn out 4 season Pirelli's (at 14,500 miles!) with General Grabber UHP's. All but one took no more than 1 oz of weight, the lone outlier took 2 oz, I can live with that.

The ride is a marked improvement. It's not soft by any stretch of the imagination but it took the harshness away. I can now feel the difference between Auto, Sport and Track where before sport was barely different than Auto (track is always noticeable). Slight road noise over some types of pavement that the Pirelli's didn't have but it's low pitched and blends in with the exhaust rumble. All the tram-lining and dartiness I noticed as the Pirelli's wore is gone!

Handling, The steering response is slightly less instant but again, not sloppy like the Parada's were on my Overland. Initial turn is is very linear, there is no feeing like you are loading up the sidewall that I was fearing again, after my experience with the Parada's. Grip is very linear up to the limit. Of course, as expected, with full tread vs. the 20% left on the Pirelli's the absolute cornering force is down a bit, probably about .05G but I didn't take my G-Tech so I don't know the absolute numbers.

All in all I'm pretty happy with them at at $680 OTD with installation and all the rebates I thrilled.

Tomorrow is an alignment and next week into the dealer for TSB's (trans, transfer case, remote start and radio).

Re: What did you do to your WK2 SRT today?

Installed the Borla ATAK Axleback... Too easy. Just jacked it up, borrowed an exhaust cutter from AutoZone, chopped the pipes, swore at the hangers until they gave up the goods, and popped the the new cans in. I was only under the truck for about an hour.

It's been said many times before, and everyone was right. The ATAK really isn't that much louder than stock until you really stuff your foot into it. It's just throatier, with a deep rumble. I spent about an hour on the highway last night and the change in tone when the MDS kicks in is about equal to stock.

Now to throw some money at Toona...

Installed a very inexpensive interior mod today.

I made a custom pic for my 730N screen.

Wife traded her '12 GC SRT8 in for 2014 Audi SQ5. Stay tuned, I've got some nice mods I'll be listing soon.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 SRT today?

Washed mine and doctored up a chip on the door where some a$$h0l3 decided to open their door into it. Luckily it didn't put a dent in the door and the touch-up hides it pretty well.
