Re: Question about Sport Mode.

I tested this myself, drove a whole tank in sport mode, and a whole tank in Auto, both weeks were the same commute to work. Noted 1 mpg better in sport mode. Not a huge difference, but I like...

Re: 2011/12 Hemi grand cherokee exhaust

I don't know what the HP, torque or MPG gains are, would depend on what you replaced it with. But the stock exhaust is 2.5" to the ball flanges in the middle, from there it is 2.25" the rest of the...

Re: Just in case you wanted to know...

It is pretty darn lound if you really get in it. I like the sound, but it's a little too much IMHO for a daily driver. I'll do my best to put up another video of a rev before I take it to get the...

Well just back from picking up the Jeep... this sucks. First, it's not as loud as I would like it to be. I don't want it to be obnoxious, but I would like to hear it inside if I step on it. Also,...

Re: Seat fan cooler is so loud!

I just used mine last week for first time, and I don't remember it being that loud. At least not enough that I noticed it.

Re: The next mod...

I have heard of others mounting the stock 5.7 stock exhaust on their 3.6, I think it will bolt right up. I would think this would be the same. Just a guess though.

Apparently I emailed the tech line, and they have no idea what the engineers are working on, or when something could come out. Will have to find another way to contact them.

I'll send them an email too. Check out this clip when you have time. At one point, it gets totally quiet at about 60mph.

When I first got mine I thought I noticed the same thing, but have not tried a whole tank in sport mode. I'm due to fill up tomorrow, I'll give it a try over the next week and report back.

It does, and I wondered if that could be the problem, if that feature wasn't working properly? I was flashed again this morning (flashed back this time) and I know my brights were not on. :confused:

Re: 1st oil change on 2012 wk2 ????

I changed mine at 1500 miles for peace of mind. Might be overkill, but it can't hurt. I'll change again when the evic says it's time, then will change with the regular schedule every time after.
