Re: Ripp vs. Whipple ??

For the Whipple installed at a shop, somewhere around 10k is probably about right. I think Livernois is closer to 11k for them to install it. I installed myself as I'm in TX and they're in MI.

Re: Ripp vs. Whipple ??

That is yet to be determined. We have some ideas from investigating the carnage, but Livernois wants to get it on the rollers and do some diagnostics/logging to determine the root cause.

Re: New to Jeeps, seeking advice on GC SRT

It's the best performance SUV.

8 speed is fine and you get increased performance and efficiency over the old 5 speed. There are occasional bumps on the 5-4 downshift, but they are few and far...

Re: Ripp vs. Whipple ??

With either, drop some forged pistons and rods in... And, I'd also say to validate your tune locally on a dyno with a wideband to ensure you are where you should be.

Re: Hellcat Army

Beautiful. I wish they'd put a bright blue on the Jeeps, although I'd prefer the Shadow Blue Pearl from the Viper. :thumbsup:

Re: Any feedback on the Generals for tires?

Re: 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee TrackHawk

Maybe, but I didn't pay that much attention to the speculation on the cars. 392 jump to the HC on each is 13-16k with regards to MSRP. I expect it will be something very similar, if not even more...

Re: 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee TrackHawk

But they can charge more, and they will. No way they give a $5k bump over the 6.4. $89,995.00 is my guess. And people will pay that for every one they make. I know what I've got into mine at this...

Re: Trade in For HellCat or Mod current SRT to pull 0-60 in 3 Sec

Re: 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee TrackHawk

Re: 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee TrackHawk

The 6.4 motor will be the base and continue to get the ZF 8hp70 transmission.

6.2 s/c'ed motor will be an option and end up with the ZF 8hp90, or some variant of it.

Stupid people will pay it. I could have had one for under MSRP, but I have no desire for a 2 door. I really considered the Charger HC though before I decided to build out the Jeep.

Tape once. Put several coats on. Add the gloss coat last if you want that. Then peel the tape off carefully and the plastidip will separate at sharp edges.
