    Are there any plans, or has there been talk, to start offering the SRTs forged from the factory? Even as an upgrade? im sure all us F/I guys would appreciate not having to buy pistons and all that to run more boost?

    The ground rules:

    • First off, the SRT Engineers take time out of their busy schedule making go fast goodies to be here to answer our questions. Let's show them the proper courtesy and patience. There will be many questions and they may not be able to answer every question asked. If your question is skipped, please be patient as questions are not answered in order.
    • Please only ask one or two questions. There are lots of people who want to ask questions, so let's give everyone a chance.
    • Stay on the topic at hand. SRT Vehicles! Keep the off-topic chat to the other sections of the website. There is to be no discussion between members in this forum. Ask your question and enjoy the replies from the Engineers!
    • If your question has already been asked (by you or someone else). Don't re-post it in hopes to get it answered quicker.
    • Make sure you let the SRT Engineers know what model SRT vehicle you are driving or inquiring about. Yes, a head gasket is quite different between an SRT8 and an SRT4.
    • As much as everyone is salivating over what comes in the future, the SRT Engineers cannot answer any questions regarding future product.

The regional service rep said that this "noise" is a characteristic of the SRT vehicles from 2006-2007. I have driven in other SRT vehicles and did not notice this noise at all. Obviously they thought there was a problem with my car or they would not have switched out all of those parts. I even went so far as to look into the Lemon Law but unfortunately I was passed the alloted time. I dont think this is fair and need advice. Thank you.


    For 2008, there was a check valve change to the shocks which helps this noise. They are retuned for better ride as well, so we suggest replacing all 4 if you want to go this route. The source of the remaining noise is the front upper strut mount in rebound events. We are working on a design change to help the issue, but it will be some time before we will have something out. Thanks to these webchats, we are able to convince management we need to keep working on it.
    Is there a replacement strut mount available yet? If so, is there a way to differentiate the new design vs. old to make sure I am getting the new one?

    Is there a way to differentiate (visually) the revised dampers from the old ones?

    Thank you

    I was just wanting a time line that I could possibly get the redesigned dampers..The dealership has replaced both struts and several other parts, but when showing them the chat answer from before..they are also waiting the redesigned part.....Any thoughts on this

    And thanks in advance..

    Was wondering why is it that all SRT8 models besides the SRT8 Jeep come with slotted rotors ?
    Ever since I purchased the Jeep I have been having issues with very loud brake squeling, unlike the normal squeaking noise from the Charger I had before. Dealership offers no fix for it, they "service the brakes" and replaced pads/rotors but the horrible noise remains the same. Is this due to the flat rotors on the Jeep ?

    Just a quick question which maybe stupid. But why can't you make an SRT/8 in AWD ? To much HP & Torque, or to expensive ? Could it be done ?

    Guys and Gals thanks for your time.

    As you can tell several people are looking to use 6.4 parts on other builds, something that has been thrown around are the differences in the block design in the 6.4.

    The 6.4 from whats been said before is a beefed up 5.7 VVT

    Spec size what was changed ( wall thickness, webbing etc )

    It seems Dodge is going to be doing a lot more after market for the Rams, I hope that will work into the Gem3 Hemi's and LX/LC/LY platforms as well.

    I have a 2007 charger srt8
    tsb for 15w-50 oil
    I have noticed with the mobil 1 15w-50 that it takes much longer for the oil temps to rise (I have to drive it hard or @ the track to exceed 230 degrees) hence the oil pressure @ start up is around 80psi and with part throttle will climb into the 90 psi range and takes muck longer (until the oil is hot) for idle pressure to be in the 20 psi range..
    Is there any potential problems with the oil pressure being that high for extended periods? what is the oil weight you would recommend for the hot Florida months?

    Thank you !

    Hyper-grounding has slithered its way onto our platforms with the obligatory promises of better fuel mileage, more HP/TQ, smoother/faster throttle response, etc by simply replacing various GND cables with larger AWG (understanding how voltage and/or current are controlled by-way of the PCM - specifically ignition/fuel systems means the above gains are at best questionable).

    However a CSN was released (J21; NOV/09) that suggests replacing B- and possibly the battery (w/higher CCA). This CSN, along with the notion the entire existing OEM GND cabling is inadequate (with zero empirical measurements), are being held up as proof.

    Can you elaborate on the reasoning behind J21’s release, and why it covered a specific (production) range of vehicles. Thanks.

    The new 6 piston caliper is not compatible with the 2006-2010 WK, it was specifically designed for the new knuckle and suspension.

    Regarding the variable length runner system within the intake manifold; can you elaborate on the technology please; details like where in the rpm range it was determined the best point of transition, whether there are multiple transition points and the reasoning, and most importantly what sort of gains in HP and TQ were observed during testing. Thanks!
    The SRV actuates between 4800 and 4900 rpm. It adds a huge amount of area under the curve below 4800 and really adds to the performance of the MTX vehicle.

    We do not have any fuel/map strategies that we utilize for low mileage. The 6th gear learn is done at the plant. We typically see power increases on new engines up to 4k mileage.

    Nope unfortunately even if the diameters are the same, the piston length needs to be sufficient to not push the pistons out with worn pads and not too long so new pads will fit with the piston fully retracted.
