    Depends how you look at it. I also traded a 2014 Cadillac ATS 2.0 turbo (base - No festures). Lost my ass on the ATS.. Almost 40% deprection. But, I saved about $2,500 in sales tax, didn't have to mess with tire kickers, I got a fully optioned Scat and the deal ws done in about 3 hrs. So was it fair? For me yes.

    So in your opinion $21,000 for a 2009 SRT 8 is a fari deal ?. Probably this time next year it will be worth less I'm guessing.

    So basically it's a fair Deal? I'm not trading anything dealer wants to buy it straight up. Wasn't going to get rid of this car but selling the viper has turned into a nightmare and thanks to a guy named Doug DeMuro everyone now thinks that a B/W GTS is only worth 36-$37,000 no matter what lol

    Funny I had almost the identical wheels. What are they mmr’s or something like that.
    I have the eforce on the exact same car and I like it but miss the blower sound. I run 8 psi and I’m around 570hp on stock block. AJ tuned it
    If I were to do it again I think I would look at whipple a little closer. It was just to new when they first came out when I did mine.

    I have a KB 2.8 LC on my 2009 Chalenger SRT, 6.1.

    The Kenne Bell is bad on the heat soaking issue.  But that is only a concern if you are going to drag race the car.  You will not see consistent E.T.'s without going through a lot of in-between round cool-down work. 

    If this will be a street driver, then the entire heat soak issue is a non-discussion because it doesn't apply to a car that's driven on the street.  

    So you are pretty happy with it? Did you do any other mods like LG headers? Is there room fro a shock tower brace with the KB?

    This is a common complaint with the 2.4L, unfortunately. I had no oil consumption issue with my 1.4L MultiAir in my Dart. I've got a 2017 Fiat 124 Spider now, same motor, also no consumption. 

    1.4's and 2.0's generally don't have any issues. My friend bought a Jeep with the 2.4 and is already having oil consumption issues. Mine has been eating oil since day 1. There is no fix for it and they won't give any advice or a rebate for another car. It's bullshit and there should be a massive recall.

    With 30% oil life, Car did not want to start, sounded like a low battery just clicking away. Checked the oil and it was bone dry.

    Same here. We have to add oil weekly. Car is only worth $3,000 on a trade and is going to my 16 year old for he won't be driving many miles. Buying a Honda for a DD. Fiat can shove their cars sideways. They have been no help and the only reason i don't sue is because the car is worthless. If it were a Hellcat I would. I was hoping for better treatment. Nothing, so I won't be buying a Hellcat. or anything else from Fiat ever again...

    My gf has a Dart and yep it's been consuming oil like crazy. After I came across the issue, I searched online and it seems to very common. 

    Mine literally quit running from oil level too low. Friend of mine has a Jeep with same engine and it's using oil. Dealer told him the same thing.


  8. I'm sad to report that the 2.4 is a pos and eats oil. I bought a brand new 2014 Dart GT that has been consuming oil since day 1. I filed a complaint and was told 2 quarts of oil consumption between oil changes was within factory guidelines. Yeah , right. It has gotten worse and complaints are all over the internet. Uses 4 quarts now between oil changes and was informed now they won't do anything because it is over the 100,000 mile factory warranty, despite my complaints for the last 2 years. So they can take their Hellcat and shove it. We have averaged a new Chrysler every 2 years for the last 20 years. Fiat sucks balls and won't get any more business from us.
