Seeing the Charger is gone, I needed a new go fast project, I needed something different. something i can honestly say i would of never guessed I would be d... Show moreriving one.
Well here it is!!
Sold the Charger to get this, 2009 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8! 6.1 Hemi, in an AWD SUV. fully loaded with almost all the options except rear entertainment and rear heated seats..
I am going to keep it pretty basic for now. maybe just changing a few bolt on items like the exhaust, CAI, and a tune. but i plan to do more to it and beef it up. I want to see this thing do Low 12s
fully loaded, Modern Blue Pearl, 2009 Jeep Grand Charokee SRT8
Well after 5 years with Missy (aka the Mistress) and several upgrades, it was time to start a new project.
the things i have done to it since last posted:
... Show moreArrington stroker cam
Frank Racing street/strip heads
ported MM throttle body
6.1 exhaust manifolds
This added 110 more HP at the wheels
however, it started having issues and we have been chasing those issues for a while.
the mechanic i take the car to is a 5 hour drive one way so it spent more time at his shop than Me actually driving it. I didnt get the trach numbers I wanted but I was limited by the rear gears and the stock Torque converter. I was planning on swapping those out during the winter. however an opertunity came to me and I had to sell it. I needed to start over on a new project.
So the new project is here and stock it seams faster and more responsive than Missy did even after all the work.
So long Missy, I will miss you but you were a bitch in the end!!

I would get the EAS and ABS lights on and the car would go into limp mode. so I checked everything from the Fuses, battery, grounds, ECM, PCM and FCM, everything that I could think of. Finally after several months of testing and going back and forth with DiabloSport we found a fix. On the OBDII connector there is an extra pin that Was causing the issue, So i took that pin out of the connector (#13 White and Dark blue strip) and bam, everything is working fine and I can monitor and even run the speed tests.More news, a few weeks ago I desided i was bored with the chrome rims on the car, so i desided to Plexi-Dip the rims. its been a few weeks now and it is still holding stron and i think the flat black fits the silver and black look i have better here is a pic Show Less
