Installing Aftermarket Upgrades on my Jailbreak

2774 Views 17 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  WVHEMIS

As some of you may know I finally got my Jailbreak recently and of course I do have a list of upgrades to install.

This is what I’ve got so far:
  • ZL1 Rock guards
  • ZL1 Skirts
  • ZL1 Rear Delux Difuser
  • Mopar SRT door sills (why does this don’t come standard?)
  • Mopar rear Strut brace
  • Mopar trunk carpet (this also should’ve been factory standa
Still pending to install:
  • ZL1 Front Splitter (not installed yet)
  • Mopar black SRT Rear license plate kit
  • Mopar Hellcat logo stem valve caps
  • Front strut brace (haven’t figured out which one to install)
  • Windows tint and PPF (got appointment for mid August)

Luggage and bags Bag Musical instrument accessory Red Material property
Vehicle Motor vehicle Hood Car Automotive lighting

Wheel Tire Car Vehicle Land vehicle

Any recommendations for the front strut brace? Looking to keep the original Inter cooler reservoir, anyone knows if the original Mopar will fit?

Also, what brake pads do you recommend for daily driver and for track to replace the OEM?

Well I think they are most effective on vehicles that have forced induction rather than naturally aspirated. My understanding is that the oil gets essentially atomized into the air coming out of the valve cover breather, and the Dodge factory solution was to inject that back into the air entering the supercharger on the engine which takes it to the cylinders to be burned up when the engine runs. It's ultimately the air intake downstream of the hose feeding the oily air and the suoercharger where this oil ends up, leaving a layer of oil on any surface it contacts. I installed my catch can almost immediately after buying the car new, and I emptied it frequently every thousand miles or so. It was never a lot of oil but it was a few ounces at least. That tapered off to less oil per 1000 miles as the motor broke-in to where I only emptied it every 3 months or so. I recently had a bunch of work done to my car and swapped out the Z bracket mounted older design UPR for the newer version UPR catch can with a fender-mount and just checked it for the first time in 2 months since installation last weekend while changing the oil. The catch can had about 1/4 inch of oil in it. I think if you search Youtube there is at least one video I can remember that shows the inside of the engine and supercharger on a Hellcat with and without a catch can. The catch can equipped cars engine is MUCH cleaner, almost looking brand new whereas the other engine has oil varnish in multiple places.
So why wouldn’t Dodge put it on the car from the factory if the catch can is supposed prevent premature wear. I just don’t get the whole catch can craze. Cars with or without a catch can don’t run any different. Is there evidence out there that proves the car runs better or lasts longer with a catch can?
