    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.


  6. 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.

    I've seen a few people with 2015+ tail lights that kept their 2008-2014 bumper cover. Not sure what all is involved, but it's definitely possible. 

    Been looking at parts online. I think all that has to be changed is the "surround panel" that snaps into the center because the outside edge is more rounded and not angled . Also the pig tail connection for the Led 2015 tailights is a 4 prong where mine is a 3 prong. Wiring Blah...I'm sure it's simple.

    The whole assembly looks like it has the same mounting points looking at them on ebay. $175 for right and left assembly and $350 for the center section. I think you may be talking about the actual lens. not the whole assembly?

    Uhhh yeah they're slow.  My 2SS Camaro has 455 and weighs 3700 lbs full of fuel.  Guy here at work has one he bought recently and people who ride in it just kinda shrug.  I take them out in the HC and they're like HOLY ****

    They need turbos or  a sc to get out of it's own way lol. But it worth more now than I paid for it. The Hellcat I want will probably be gone by the time I could sell these cars and they will murder me on a trade. But the prices on the Hellcats are still dropping so we'll see...or not.

    I too went the "build the mofo" way and it takes a hell of a lot of money to get to sub 10.5 even more for sub 10.0 ......not to mention the constant breaking of shit . I loved my 08 BUT once you get to that 'got to go faster " it became an absolute nightmare . Leaving the events pissed off with something else broken took the wind out of the sails. All in the name of FASTEST. Between the upgrades from 09 until I sold it .(gave it away ) I had 50k +/- in the car in upgrades PLUS what I paid for it .

    I now own a Hellcat........absolutely the best decision I ever made with a performance vehicle . LOVE EVERYTHING about it..... even after an engine replacement (Long Block for FREE ) Warranty ON A MID-10 second street car . For around $4500.00 (Driveshaft , 3:09 gear , upper pulley change , Hemituner computer , Tune by Brent at DTP , Drag radials ) !0.33 1/4 mile 716 rwhp

    No brainer ......HELLCAT !!!!!!

    Need some pics! Did you trade yours in or sell privately?
