well as the title says...from what i just read it looks like the srt-4 edition well have a 57mm throttle body, a full 3in turbo back exhuast,a dual mass fly wheel...clutch seems alittle weak...its capable of handling only 300ft/lbs of tq...only 40 more ft/lbs over stock... same TD04 turbo from the previous model will be used it also features brake assist,esp,park sense,power adjustable pedals,smart beam head lamps,and the dreaded tire pressure monitoring system<---junk! anyway 4 colors will be available...brillant black...sunburst orange...bright silver and inferno red...and thats pretty much it...hope this isn't old news...if so sorry:thumb:

Interesting. Only I am having a hard time believing they are using the SAME turbo the neon SRT4 has. It may be a TD04 but I am sure it has a larger A/R turbine and a bigger compressor wheel.

Moreover I wonder if the figures are @ the wheel or fly?

There's too many variations of the TD04, and I don't see them pumping that much exhaust gas out efficiently through a 6cm-2 housing. The clutch may be OK, but because of the dual-mas setup it's going to be expensive to upgrade. Not that the modular setups in the current car are really affordable.

The actual transaxle will be interesting to see how it stands up when people start modifying the car. Unfortunately a lot of the Getrag-manufactured untis have a habit of coming with a sticker saying "send back to Getrag" for all internal repairs. It better be strong or else it's going to be $$$ if there are any issues down the road. I'm predicting it now. :lol:

and the dreaded tire pressure monitoring system<---junk!
I have the sensors on my Charger and I can assure you they are not junk.... They actually work very well. Saved my ass on a trip to Phoenix last month.

I was not being arbitrary in stating that they are junk, working as a parts professional in a jeep-chrysler dealer i see all the problems associated with the tire pressure sensors and i feel some improvements should be made to this system

Any word on the adjustable WGA? Seems an interesting feature, particularly for those who auto-x in the stock classes.

its just not practical. its not a natural feeling. When you wanna be racing through the gears you want the shift to be a fluent natural feeling, not like your punching your radio

yeah i know what your saying...a friend of mine just picked up a corrado and i drove it for the first time last night and all i have to say is...i've been in dump trucks that have shorter shift throws than this car did i almost took out the radio with my knuckles...he seemed to think it was short till i told him to jump in my car and pull it through the gear...he got out and said i now what im going to order tomorrow...

So basically the new shifters got a lot in common with a stock first gen. :lol:

Sorry, I did not mean to sound harsh... I am currently in PA while getting sleep from MDT... two hours a night, so I am just a little cranky...:ftard:

I understand where you are coming from, but I do like my sensors... Well, I do not like the fact that you have to blow the tires up past 45 psi to reset the sensors, that's just stupid.... I did not know that until I rotated the tires and had to call my Service Manager... Nontheless, the sensors really do work well. Maybe they made changes to them when adding to the Charger's?

Anyway, I do apologize for the harshness in my wording. It was unintentional.
