WK2 SRT Tuning

Guys,

Any advice where to tune my WK2 SRT?

I'm really pissed off.

I called many tuners. They always say these words (( sorry we don't work on this car )).

What to do ???

Thanks

Re: WK2 SRT Tuning

I would contact Twin Turbo Creations. Its going to be pricey to get that much power because the stock piston rings can handle small amount of boost. You might have to change your pistons which will be expensive.

Two things I'm concerned about which I still would like to have them after tuning.

lunch control & eco mode

Will I be able to use them after the tuning is done ?

Regarding TT creations,

How long have they been tuning ?

Are they trustworthy ?

Excuse me guys but it's all about money and loss.

I don't want to take my car them and afterwards they they return it to me as a piece of scrap.

This is for the benefit of all of us.

Still waiting for your advice.

Re: WK2 SRT Tuning

TT creations is a very reputable company! You should still have launch control but not sure why your worrying about ECO mode when you want 850 whp lol. Contact them with your questions and I imagine they would be more than happy to answer them.

Better have $30k+ ready to spend....seriously. The reality is, these engines and their tuning are pretty tough to build on without big money. IMO, the money it's going to take to add good power to these rigs just isn't going to be cost effective or in peoples budgets across the board. Enjoy the truck as it is.

Not going to have Eco Mode anymore once you do what will be needed to get that horsepower. Personally, I drive 80 miles round trip on the highway for work, and I notice no big difference using Eco mode.

Please show me a demon vehicle with 650 hp and 800 hp. They've done 1 srt and the kit looked like shot imho and ran an 11.7 in the quarter. I would much rather send my $70k jeep to someone like Chris hull, stage 6 or someone who's actually built more than one cobbled together kit.
