Found some specs on the SRT-8 and I just wanted to share. I was really impressed. My brother for example is a huge Chevy fan and hates anything that has to do the slightest bit with Dodge. He says they always have transmission trouble. Well, it looks like the SRT8 Jeep has a Mercedes Built transmission. And 12in wide tires in the rear? I just think this thing is really cool.
An SRT-8 (Street and Racing Technology V8) version of the Grand Cherokee debuted at the 2005 New York International Auto Show. Powered by a 420 hp (313 kW) version of the 6.1 L Hemi, it also features upgraded Brembo brakes, large dual performance exhaust with polished tips (exiting out the middle of the rear), Bilstein performance gas charged shocks and modified suspension components, Mercedes-Benz NAG1 (WA580) 5-speed transmission, unique NV146 transfer case, specially designed electronic all-wheel-drive system and interior and exterior updates. A drive shaft from a diesel application, fortified Dana 44 rear differential, and 12" wide Goodyear tires in the rear (11" in the front) complement the performance package.
The sports tuned suspension allows the Jeep SRT8 to hold 0.92g on the skid-pad, putting the 4,700 lb (2,100 kg) truck on par with the Porsche 911 Turbo (997), which holds just 0.04g more (0.96g) on the skid-pad. A road test of the 2006 model by Road & Track magazine yielded a 0 to 60 mph time of 4.6 seconds and a quarter mile dragstrip of 13.2 seconds at 104.1 miles per hour (167.5 km/h). Such numbers made the SRT-8 Grand Cherokee the fastest accelerating vehicle within the SRT8 lineup (which at the time included the Chrysler 300C, Dodge Charger, Dodge Challenger and the now-discontinued Dodge Magnum), and second only to the SRT10 Viper among all SRT tuned vehicles. There is no electronic speed governor employed, leaving the top speed rev-limited (revving to redline in top gear) to just shy of 170 mph (270 km/h). To achieve superior on-road handling, off-road gear has been removed to make the SRT-8 lighter. The SRT-8 has no low range case and no limited slip or locking differentials. Its ride stance is significantly lower and the front fascia spoiler gives the vehicle 7 inches (178 mm) of ground clearance. The Grand Cherokee SRT-8 was the first SRT vehicle to wear the Jeep emblem.
The Jeep SRT8 drive-line stayed the same from the 2006 to 2009 model years.
The Jeep SRT8 upgrade by Hennessey Performance Engineering (HPE) out-accelerates a stock Dodge Viper by more than a car length at 60 mph (0-to-60 mph in 3.4 seconds, 1.4 seconds quicker than stock) and beats the SRT10 Viper in the quarter mile. With a turbocharged 6.1 L Hemi V8 inside, the exterior modifications consist of a few SRT600 badges and optional 20x10.5-inch forged-aluminum wheels wrapped in grippy Michelin Pilot Sport 2 295/30ZR20 tires.

2.0, did you like the XPT vs Cobb?
2006 AW STi
I'm curious as to understand what you mean by someone with a similar set up? That sti is making more hp and tq then a cobb stage 2 sti will make. I'm not sure what my tq numbers would be but I should be around 250 whp give or take a little. You will be putting down more hp then me. The reason I can keep up with these cars is my car weighs 2750 lbs. I'm a good 500-600 lbs lighter. The legacy is putting down less hp then the sti but he is a little lighter then the sti. Not near as light as me but 100 or so lbs. Weight is a HUGE thing.
You should take your car to one of those trucker weigh stations, or anywhere they do weighing and get a print out. I think it only cost me like $5 or $10 when I did it a long time ago...
i raced one from a dig a few months ago. he spun the tires and i launched and hooked real good. had him till about 50 then i didnt stand a chance and i backed off at about 60. im stage 2 and the SRT 8 looked stock
