Thanks guys for all the wishes and responses
I drove it all weekend and its a filthy animal right now. I averaged 16-17 mpg with some spirited driving and it moved up to 22mpg on 39 mile drive on highway. I am hoping for more because I promised my wife that I would cut my fuel costs by 30% from my Cadillac escalade (14.3 avg).
So I am trying to negotiate a deal on a jeep grand Cherokee to keep a SUV in the family and back at the dealer today. Of course I am looking at the differences between my S and the srt8 again. It's weird to me that the srt8 looks so much lower and with wider wheels. But the rears have the same size wheel and tire as my car. It also looks as if the height is the same?..
I think it's the front and rear facias that make this more aggressive - the wheels also help too.
So I have made up my mind for the mods to be started but at a pace that my wife should not notice
1) Intake first to help with economy and srt8 spoiler
2) Drop 1/2 inch as soon as I can figure out which springs will not loose my great ride and get me the smallest drop
3) exhaust with programming to get a little more sound and fuel economy -- also have some fun getting on highway
4) srt8 grill and rear bumper with valence
If you guys know what springs you can recommend - I have seen sipped logix and other site where to buy them I just figure out which ones are going to get me where I want to be.
It seems the best intake is the B&m and exhaust is the corsa -> any advice on these would help too.
Man it's great to be back in the mod world again
