Re: Which year WK SRT8 to buy?

I have a 2009. I LOVE the interior of the '08+. The black leather, with extra leather wrapped options, and upgraded nav unit.

Definitely go '08+ if you can afford it.

For what it's worth,...

Re: Which year WK SRT8 to buy?

As the 2 above said 08-10. 09-10 command a premium though. They also have the EVIC system, which the 08 did not come with. Other than that the differences are essentially negligible.

Re: Which year WK SRT8 to buy?

2008 was the year with the most changes/upgrades so I would choose the best deal you can find on an '08-'10. The link below will show you all of the changes from 2006-2010:

Re: Going after poor idle on 4.7... Anything else?

IACV, and EGR should be at the top of the list, coils near the bottom. use the vacuum line going to the brake booster for the Seafoam, better distribution amongst the cylinders that way.

Re: When to change brakes?

Doing only one pair wont hurt anything, a lot of people do it since the rears wear much slower than the fronts. But as the guys already said it will be a better ride if you do all of them together.
