Installing SRT8 Engine Strut Bar on 5.7 Help
 
I got one ordered coming any day, So to the guys who installed one on a 5.7 hemi engine is it easy to do. What is are torque specs on installing it. Can i use the nuts that are on the one I got in on my engine now? If you guys got picturs of thei install post on thread.


Thanks
ChrisWK

You'll have to unhook a few things near the bar to get to some of the bolts. That's all I know :)

I'm genuinely curious if the Srt8 strut bar actually improves the handling (being a stand-alone mod).

Congrats!

I do not know if it improves handling I was getting it to use the catch can bracket to install it on and it looks cooler than the black flat one I got.

I don't know either, but if you happen to notice any improvements, I'd appreciate the feedback :)

same NUTS chris. 70 ft. lbs.

I cn say that i couldnt FEEL any differences.

I wanted it so i could paint it. the WK one hits the hood insulation, the srt8 one does not.

Oh really now???? The SRT8 one doesn't touch at all? I found this out the hardway. I painted my strut bar and it scuffed up from the top insulation almost instantly.

Rather bummed out :(
