Was not sure where to place this information. There are a few threads about the new numbers run by the 2012 SRT8.
That is the information people like to ignore... The Jeep was designed to be much more refined, offer better handling, but maintain similar straight line acceleration. They did what they set out to do. When running the WK1 vs. WK2 stock for stock it was found that they had similar numbers but the WK2 did pull a bit more up top. Even being equal times/speeds SRT did a great job with the platform they were given. The only thing they dropped the ball on is the price.

The 6.4 is hauling ass compared to a 6.1 up top. Who here ran mid-low 13s at 103-104 with a stock WK1?

104 trap for WK1 is like a 12.9... am I right?

What we need is a die hard gen 1 fan (also owner) to get one in his garage and spill the beans. I'm waiting for that review.

Guess we will see if this means 6 or 8 speed.....

"SRT says a newer transmission with more ratios will show up in a couple of years, but until then, this one will have to do."
