In the fuel economy thread, someone brought up a Startech SD6 kit for our diesel. Below is the quote from the following website:
(click under Programs, and then Grand Cherokee WH (is the H the European model?)
"Equipped with the new STARTECH SD6 tuning kit the V6 diesel produces a maximum power output of 262 hp / 193 kW compared to 218 hp / 160 kW for the non-tuned version. At the same time peak torque grows from 510 Nm to 580 Nm between 1,600 and 2,800 rpm. The STARTECH SD6 performance kit consists of an auxiliary computer control unit that can be installed in less than 30 minutes by any authorized Chrysler dealer, thanks to the included wire harness and installation instructions. With STARTECH SD6 tuning performance of the SUV improves noticeably: The sprint to 100 km/h (62 mph) is shortened from 9.2 seconds for the production car to 8.5 seconds for the STARTECH-tuned version. Top speed increases to 210 km/h (130 mph). "
From their email and the metric numbers above, this is obviously a European product. Does anyone know if we can get this from our dealers here in the US? I would love this upgrade if it was dealer supported and won't affect warranty. Obviously, fuel economy would likely suffer a bit, but if you weren't pushing it during everyday driving, maybe this wouldn't hurt too much. It surely would be nice to have even more power, torque, and acceleration when needed. Thoughts?
