Re: What did you do to your WK2 SRT today?

Thanks.

I see there are two different ones on JFJ website, Which one is it: 5UY60DX8AA or 55112724AA?

Re: What did you do to your WK2 SRT today?

Is there a how-to somewhere here for this? I thought that emblem was hard mounted ? (meaning part of tailgate and if broken off/out, there is no way to reattach).

Re: tools needed for brake job

With not many miles or corrosion, per brake, it'll take longer to jack up, take wheel/tire off, put wheel/tire on, remove jack than the actual brake pad changing part.

Re: SRT Hellcat Official Numbers!

Re: Twin Turbo 2013 srt8 in progress

It has to be, because you will not be able to run that turbo setup with that power, on a stock 6.4L. Basically, you'll be building a custom engine and turbo setup.

Re: RIPP Superchargers 2012-2014 SRT Stage 1 Testing results

RIPP, chance of getting the intercooler in black like I have seen for other applications I believe you have on your site. Don't really like the big silver piece behind the front grill.
