2007 Jeep SRT-8

I got a friend who just picked himself up a rather nice Jeep SRT-8. I've nevere even heard of them before, but it is a nice car. He is wanting to line up against my 335i sedan and see what they can do. I'm curious if anyone has any info about the Jeep, and possibly how my BMW would fair? Thanks

Stock for stock, you'll probably get beat, although a few runs may be close. They're heavy, but fast w/ 425BHP/420 lb.-ft. TQ and AWD (great for launches). If you add the PROcede, you'll beat the Jeep SRT-8; I've run against a 300C SRT-8, a Charger SRT-8, and a Jeep SRT-8, and beat all three.

btw -- there are a few threads on 335i's vs. SRT-8's...do a search and you'll find some interesting reading.

This is great news! I was just curious what it might be like IF i decide to do it. Thanks for all the help guys!

As a side note, I've been lurking around the forums for a while and want to thank everyone for keeping this site alive! I have found soooo much useful info with my 335. I came from a lifetime of Ford trucks, and I have stepped into the BMW world, and just greatly appreciate the help and input!

I think you'll get beat, but it will be close. From a dig, you should have an advantage, but top end that thing is a monster. SRT-8's have a ton of torque, too. Whoever wins or loses, that jeep sounds BADASS!

its a quick jeep. i raced my buddys in my stg 2 legacy and off the line pretty much equal but i would start pulling by 3rd gear. the 335 is about the same as the stg2 so i think it will be real close. w/procede.no contest

nope, rr sport supercharged traps ~95mph in the 1/4 mile IIRC, ALOT slower than the Jeep.

all the vids i've seen show the Jeep SRT8 as getting an initial jump off the line probably due to the 4x4, but the stock 335 just walks right by after a few secs.

Therefore one can assume if either the 335i or the SRT-8 is far ahead, the other driver sucks.


Also if one adds the Procede, then it is only fair to give Jeep a mod as well. Here is the Hennessey SRT600 upgrade to the Jeep.

Sorry to tell you, but your stock 335i 0-60mph figures are a bit inaccurate. Even Edmunds.com, BusinessWeek.com, and C&D all got 4.8 sec. 0-60mph for a stock 335i. Where do you get 5.1 sec. 0-60mph? Also, the 1/4 mi. for a stock 335i has been from 13.4-13.6 sec. @ 105mph. A PROcede 335i is typically running ~ 4.4-4.6 sec. 0-60mph and ~ 12.5-12.8 sec. @ 108+mph 1/4 mi. (depending on the track elevation, conditions, tires, etc.).

Heres how I arrived at the figures, I visited various sources on the internet, added their numbers together and averaged them out since every source likes to have their own times. Same with the 1/4 mile time, and 13.6 is within your range. I am sure there are SRT-8 owners who will claim faster times as well.

The same I did with the procede except instead I averaged published time slips and came out to that figure.

So yes there may be a couple tenths of error but there may also be a couple tenths of error with the SRT-8 as well, so it doesn't mean all that much. Neither car is going to walk on the other one with equal drivers.

I'd have to agree with that. Just to let you know, I've run against a 300C SRT-8, a Charger SRT-8, and a Jeep GC SRT-8, and beat all of them by a fair margin; but my car is a PROcede 335i. In the run against the Charger SRT-8 (from a light), he got a quick jump and we were even until I hit 3rd gear (~ 70mph); that's when I pulled on him, and we shut it down after I was 1.5-2 CLs ahead by ~ 110mph. I ran against the 300C SRT-8 and Jeep GC SRT-8 on the highway, and neither one could keep up with me...I pulled several CLs ahead of both of them. :rocks: Sorry, I don't have videos but I posted threads about the experiences on here right after they happened.

Lets see for ~$1K and 1 hour install to give the 335i an extra 100 whp with Procede version 2 (I figured WTH I might as well go for version 2)
And you will need to spend over $30K with shipping costs and currently a 16 week backlog just so your Jeep can keep up with the 335i.
FYI Apparently the Hennessy upgrade is rare at only 50 units a year.

I only used it as an example because everyone brings out the Procede vs. every other car that is non modified as though it is some free upgrade or as though it isn't counted as a mod. When comparing both stock automobiles they are basically equal.

When you upgrade the Jeep to the Hennessy SRT600, you aren't worried about keeping up with Procededed BMWs any more, you are now in Turbo Porsche and Corvette Z06 territory. They are limited but you can get them and are around $68,000 total according to figures I've found and only getting 8mpg, whereas the 335i sips gas like a Prius in comparison.

The Jeep is pretty strong, you can say both cars are equal off the line, after that the 335i starts pulling..
why is that?? well i think some guy called Mr. Aerodynamics will answer your question, and dont forget the power to weight ratio factor



EDIT: the jeep manages to keep up with the 335i off the line becuase of the
AWD and its 420 lb-ft
