馃槀 not for slow cars like ours
You would definitely have way more fun making performance mods on something worth working on. Be careful with the Cherokees, you might break something, or kill yourself driving them like that...馃馃槈馃槑

When you did the HP tuners on individual gear torque increases how drastic was the acceleration increase?
So far me and the mad scientist got top speed unlock (TCU) and overall max torque (TCU), and working upgrading to E-85 from E30 mix, but the features like individual torque by gear and shift patterns cant access those, HP says still unsupported so we are kind of on own road at this point, we have a patch but it鈥檚 not as clear as the full HP site gives, just trying to determine if getting all the gears higher torque limits is worth the juice?

My Challenger makes 530ish WHP on a Mustang Dyno, I keep the top speed set at 150 mph because my Nitto NT05R are only rated to that speed and for NOT very long. I do use NT555g 2 most of the time though (I have not had it to the track in over a year). I found most people that want to roll race, if you gap them they usually let up around 120 when they can't catch you, what's the point after that? It did run a 12.90 on a back road according to the EVIC.

He's not at the track, he's running like that on the Toll Road in Dallas!!!馃槼馃殧
Lmao...when i read his post, I initially thought, damn he's definitely from Dallas lol! That's normal driving here as well as exploding after smashing another car from behind, guardrail or cement bridge pillar. Be careful out there and stay safe! 馃槈

Nah I鈥檓 not in that big league, it鈥檚 just fun to mess with some lower end sports cars stock ecoboost mustangs, 4th gen GT, STs, and just your garden variety imports that are faster on paper. They are smashing it but never expect a Jeep Cherokee creeping past at 140 & they can鈥檛 close the gap. Not to mention I get a lot of big fast trucks, & imports riding my bumper not willing pass and even when I slow, I then disappear as not many even capable cars will reach those speeds due to limiters and just plain aerodynamics and or power and like you said give up 120-130 range. I miss the CLA45 & Cayenne 4.8T days, those were real contenders but I鈥檓 out of that league by far. To rich for my blood, I just mostly do offroad & trails now.

What lowering coils are you using?
JVR drive coilovers make some for the KL, and FV suspensions make some for the KL. But they are both the same quality and same manufacturing process. I have both.
The front you have to be a little bit sketchy to lower by having no preload and the spring shifts around. I've put around 20k miles on them and they have done great. Its just a rough ride. The rear u can get it so low that you'll have to get shorter adjustable sway bar links or you will bend the stock ones "same with the front but i havent done it yet" . Another thing is the wheel offset. the spring sits super super close to the tire "2mm". I ran it super close for a long time and ended up getting 6mm spacers front and rear.
I wouldn't recommend it unless you want your back to suffer馃槄. I put a sparco front race seat in which helped with the rough ride/keeping me in place on turns.

I have no clue, its been too long for me to remember unless I go back to the stock tune.

I currently have HR lowering springs on it now,35mm. But I wanna get the nose down a little more. Yours looks awesome. I love it. And how you've run the pipe from the fog light hole.

Yeah about the ride now... My mrs is sliding all over the seat and I'm pushing back against the steering wheel. I priced a pair of Recaro buckets but they wanted $13000 A SEAT. I'm just gunna get the seats rebolstered.

I'm just taking it as far as i can. I don't know what it is with this car but I really like it. I've had WAY better in the past but this thing just got me. It's probably cos no one in Australia does anything with em.
.
I found another site with ur car on it. Probably what ur talking about. It's got everything you've done to it..

Yeah, it still looks stock at the moment. Anyone who knows them will notice that it's lower, but when get the wheels and as much blinding light power on the front ill flick you some photos
