Newbie!!!

Hey all,
I just took delivery of my brand new, 07 Red Rock GC SRT-8!

Now... I know I will still be getting sed tot the power for a month or two (traded i a 99 GC Limited V6 after all), but I am already interested in performance mod given my Father in Law just bought an 07 SHelby GT500.
Can you give a me a list of mods maybe sorted by price or HP/Performance improvement?
Thanks and it's great to be part of the club!

Re: Newbie!!!

Congrats on the new Jeep! Do a search for the performance mods, unfortunatley most are bolt-ons for now(CAi, exhaust). Hopefully B&G tuning will come out with a flash for the 07' soon. Check the SRT team web site and register for the SRT experience near your home town. I plan to attend in September. From what other forum members say, it should be a hoot!

Re: Newbie!!!

....here's what you do.

The front scoop mod, which means cutting it at a new angle that rams
air to the filter instead of the 90* bend that runs parallel with the grill.

A 170* or 180* thermostat.

Pull the air silencer cup off the bottom of the air filter box.

Cut the pass side brake cooling duct and fit a hose to the bottom of the
hole where the air resonator/silencer was.

At the track, or for a serious street race, pull the pink ABS pump fuse under the hood.

I ran 12.85@104.5 first pass ever on a 50* day with 752 miles on my Red Rock 07.

"search the threads for the detailed mods" They are easy and this truck is
easy to work on.

Goodluck.

My brother is picking up an 07 Shelby this coming weekend, and I am
going to whooop his @ss! haha. These things launch!

2007 Red Rock.... slightly modded, but BAD 2 the BONE!
