Are the performance pages accurate on our rigs?

If so, I think I did pretty well this morning. The second picture is the temp. Also, I test drove the 2012 last night. The temp was 43 degrees and for 3 0-60 runs the results were 5.0, 4.9 and 4.9 respectively. The third pic is final run.

2010 0-60 @ 32 degrees

2012 0-60 @ 43 degrees

This is conclusive, indisputable proof that the WK1 is faster than the WK2.

What CAI and exhaust do you have?


Well color me impressed. Not bad for a basically a stock rig. All I have is a CAI and cat back exhaust.

The best 0-60 run I ever had stock was 4.5 at 51 degrees, usually 4.6 or 4.7 (75 degrees). I just got the MOPAR CAI & MOPAR exhaust last week and ran a 4.3 at 38 degrees. This is also with brand new Goodyear run flats and no discernible tire slippage at launch. 2009 with 59,200 miles...

Pics

I know this isnt the intake/exhaust forum but wanted to add pics of my first two mods. Reviewing all of the posts I could find on Mopar CAI & catback, I will echo that all of the descriptions are accurate. There is no drone. You can feel the added eagerness of the engine and while I have no idea what the increased BHP would actually measure on a dyno (and don't pretend it is significant)--it is something and worth it just for the sound. Even if the 0.2 second quicker 0-60 runs are a combination of factors it surely didn't get slower and the acoustics are immeasureably better than stock. It's worth the price just for the exhaust note IMHO. Recommend it to anyone looking for a change and nice upgrade!

I will make sure to place my owners manual, CD's, radar detector, sweatshirt, hat, shoes and socks, pocket change, cell phones, and wallet on the side of the road as to reduce weight for my 0-60 run. ?

HAHA. Well I wish I could leave my overweight body out of the vehicle. I weigh 250 so 1/4 mile times are probably not any better with the extra breathing...
