Anybody with a 5.7 WK2 near Lake Worth, Florida? (Or willing to drive)
 
BilletTechnology is looking for a WK2 with a 5.7 that they can use to measure/test fit some parts. I saw this post in the BilletTech Vendor Forum...


"Hey Guys/gals,

We are currently re-doing our website . Once that is finished we will be swinging some good deals your way. However. We are on the hunt for a local 5.7 Jeep so we can find a perm solution for mounting. I know some of you have been figuring out mounting solutions your self. Hopefully those days will soon be over."


Anyone who is near or within driving distance of Lake Worth, FL and would be interested please post your interest here and either PM 1fst4dr (Billet Vendor Scott) or e-mail him direct-

Scott@billettechnology.com


Thanks everyone

For reference, BT put together a WK2 underhood kit for me last year based on some photos sent to them. If I recall, it was a combination of JGC SRT8 fitment and perhaps the Dodge Challenger 5.7 stuff.

Below is a photo of the kit pieces and my engine bay. Note there were only two slight fitment modifications:

1) The Windshield Washer cap needed a thin strip of electrical tape to provide for a secure seal onto the reservoir opening, easy enough.

2) The Radiator overflow reservoir cap (large square shown in yellow) needs to be cut and glued to the BT piece which is too large to fit onto the reservoir opening. I've not yet done this, but that's just laziness.

The only other missing piece from my kit is the Brake Fluid reservoir cap.

There has to be someone in FL, who will make the trek to help out fellow jeepers and get some free stuff too?

I can't wait for a mounting bracket for the catch can on 2011 5.7 JGC.

Maybe once Billet comes back on the forums they can say whether or not there is a market for the 3.6 and if so I bet they'd love to see the Jeep. I don't believe the Penstar has the same type of oil consumption as the Hemi's so I don't know if they have any plans for one or not but do know they made/people put one on the 3.5l v6 chargers.

Bump for more exposure. Not sure if Billet needs more or not?
