That's my next mod but I was hoping to wait out until Spring because obviously it's gonna get crazy cold here in Jersey soon. I figure I can survive the Fall/Winter on the stock intercooler.

That was my thought but I'm like, is that tiny turbine really causing all the noise? I looked at the K04 and compared it to my stock SRT4 turbo and was like, no way this little thing outputs that...

I'm probably over thinking it and it's probably just new sounds as others have mentioned. I can't see how the shop that did the install didn't drive it and immediately notice it. It's impossible. It...

I didn't change any pipes. I haven't tested well if I'm holding boost because I've mostly stayed out of it as I got a new clutch disc installed and can't push it for at least 500 miles.

I believe it's around the price of the K04 upgrade if you already have Stg2. $499.99. It's part of the loyalty program (if that's really loyal enough lol)
