Good evening readers! Just tested 0-100km/hr and hitted 4.5sec on the SRT Performance Page! As usual this test included using Launch control and disabling of all aids to the car. This car only has one engine mod which is the INJEN cold air intake that was installed last month coupled with the fresh new tyres from Yokohama Parada Spec-X. My previous records was 4.7sec tested twice on two different occasions. That is 0.2sec improvement over stock car. All tests were done late at night on a straight empty lane with safety in mind.
So technically, my JEEP SRT can smoke my Porsche anytime. My Skyline maybe able to keep up but I bet it will be beaten by the JEEP V8 on top speed.
This is the Yokohama Parada Spec-X tyre groove. Not sure how it works but it sure is doing its job well. The only down side for me is the ride has gotten soft. I didn't get as much road feel as compared to my last Pirelli which was pretty stiff and it was very good for tackling Subok apex. In the future I will most probably stick back to Pirelli or try other brand.
New INJEN cold air intake system! The system actually works very well. During driving, I can see from the SRT Performance Page that the temperature dropped from average 50~60celsius to 35~40celsius on a hot Brunei weather during noon time.
Hopefully I have enough budget for a set of exhaust by first quarter of next year and that would probably be it for my performance mods. Am still deciding whether to get a set of 22" wheels.....
