From what I've heard, it's because it is an actual temp gauge, not the B.S. doesn't tell you anything guage that comes in 99.9999999% of cars. When you are getting on it..the guage will rise, and when you lay off it will go down. :lol:
(i dont have one, no new info here ! ) this is a comment regarding the above post. I'll second that in saying from reading some stuff on the org that very same thing. the car will have a sensitive temp gauge
well I recommend let the windows down and turn the heater on.!! This allows for a cooler running temp. Also dont keep (try not to) spinning tires and free revving. I presonally don't think its bad but a fellow neonite told me that the free revving is bad for the tranny. whatever, you dont even need to rev it!!!!!! the damn sound scares all those who dare pass the almighty SRt-4!!!!! I'll be very honest I drive slow when I see rice out there, thinkimg their cars are sick because they have purchased freeweights for their cars 95 civic, accords crx's you name it and they TRY to pass me. I swear 2 God without flooring it or dropping into third for a passing I ascend to about 60 in one tug of the gas. then the fun part, the "Holy SHit" look on their faces all of a sudden they drive, like, oh 35mph in a 50, its like they are ashamed for even trying to mod a friggin family car!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! oh yess my ego is 2 tha roof!! j/k lol gotta go great posts today guys
I forgot to list the temps (with the heater on) I get about 185temp running. When I punch it it goes a hair above 200. I mean heck, I took it to 110 and it was talking to me"faster johnny, faster!!!!!!!! needless 2 say even at that speed it was about 205 just dont punch it every time in every gear. a constant speed is the key. My friend who has an srt-4 always punches it in every gear 1, 2, 3 (low gears i mean) he runs atleast 220!!! not saying thats bad but the cooler the Faster
I will be in 5th gear just coasting on the highway and randomly the SRT will loose all power....like if I was hit with one of those electrical shut off weapons from Fast in the Furious LOL!
But seriously....no throttle, no nothing.....for a brief 5 seconds or so....then it comes back up.
Ok, I know there were only 1175 produced, I am sure we have lost quite a few along the way till now. I was on craigslist today and I found 4 ACR's on there all within 45 minutes of my house, 2 of them being 15 minutes from me. Do you guys think there are still a bunch out there, or did they all...
They sold about 23000. I used to see a bunch back in the day. Not so much anymore. For those srts still functioning, what is the age group of the current drivers? I'm on the older side. I figure young people are more concerned about the latest phone instead of keeping a 15 year old car on the...
I just bought a 05 srt4 mods:
3in catted full exhaust
Everything else is pretty much stock
I've searched and come up blank about this.
I learned the car should be around 18 max for a stock turbo setup with mods. But I'm pushing 21psi in 3rd and 24psi in 4th. So I...
