Re: Gt Haus exhaust

Curious about the electronic valves on these.

Are they meant to be cut outs, or are they to curb droning during Eco Mode? Do you have to flip a switch, or are they automatic?

Re: Sorry Scott.. your 0-60 record was bound to fall!

Curious as everyone's opinion of the ACTUAL engine power output in hot weather vs cold.

My theory is that here is no way 470hp can propel 5200+lbs 0-60 in the low 4.X seconds.

Re: Breaking in Engine

Just keep it simple.

Don't put your foot down all the way, don't rev the engine into the hi rpm range.

Roll on pulls are much easier on components that stop light pulls.

Re: Washer tank to replace Bwoody unit

Hey Scott, keep us updated if you find a way to maintain stock functionality.

I know I'd get a bwoody tomorrow if I knew I didn't have to sacrifice anything.

Maybe write a little "how to" :)

Re: 2014 hemi 8

If you are concerned about the environment do not buy a jeep.

A leaf, Prius, hybrid, etc... is the right car for you, anything else is hypocritical and will hurt your credibility as an activist.
