Hi all, just bought a 2009 SRT8 and joined the forum today. I'd say it's been a great day overall. I'll put some pics up soon. Very excited to own this vehicle, my first in the SRT8 lineup. I had a Trailblazer SS before this, so I know some stuff about performance SUV's. When my SS got smoked by an SRT8 during last year's Woodward Dream Cruise, I knew I had to get one for myself :)

Hope you all are doing well. Looks like a pretty active forum, so I'm excited about what I can learn here.

Welcome to the forum.

What color did you get and does it have any mods already done to it?

Thanks guys. Tony, love that hood on there, looks bad ass. Hey erlad, Farmington Hills here man. The only things that have been done to it, as far as I can tell so far (haven't taken it to the track yet) are deep tinting of the driver and passenger windows, recoated rims (not charcoal, but more of a dark metallic, almost with a slight blue hue to them, very cool I think) and a kicker sub installed in the trunk. I'm sure you guys have done a lot, but what are your suggestions for 1st mods? The stock CAI looks fairly good (as compared to the shitty one that was in my SS originally), but should I get a new one and have it tuned?

erald, where did you have that Diablo done? Locally?

Yeah i bought the predator on line and got a conservative tune from Joel (Jerseboy) until i get a wideband put in, he is in WalledLake area and knows this Jeeps and the tune very well. Let me know if u need more info, btw the custom tune will def wake ur jeep up, you would not be dissapointed.

I'd start with a CAI, tune and a catch can.

I think everyone here would agree that these are 3 mods that every srt8 should have.

Thanks guys, appreciate that a lot. erald, could you email me the info for that guy? My email address is [email protected]

What would you estimate, on average, doing those 3 mods gains you in HP?
