Startech Chrysler Crossfire Roadster
From Startech press: Exclusive tuning for the new Chrysler Crossfire Roadster is now available from STARTECH. The customization program offers powerful engine tuning, a custom-tailored 19/20-inch tire/wheel combination with sporty suspension kits, an aerodynamic-enhancement package and attractive interior options.
The open two-seater is normally powered by a 3.2-liter V6 engine with 218 hp / 160 kW. STARTECH offers four different tuning stages for this engine. The STARTECH ST6 performance kit with two sport cams and special valve springs increases power output of the six-cylinder to 233 hp / 171 kW. An additional STARTECH sport exhaust system and metal catalysts turn this kit into the STARTECH ST6 S performance kit with 243 hp / 179 kW at 5,800 rpm.
STARTECH offers the proven method of increasing power output by increasing displacement also for the Crossfire. In addition to the STARTECH 3.8 increased-displacement engine with 280 hp / 206 kW the STARTECH 3.8 S engine represents the top-of-the-line.
A custom crankshaft with longer stroke, precision-balanced piston rods, larger pistons and an increased bore facilitate the increase in displacement to 3.8 liters. The three-valve heads of the six-cylinder engine are precision machined and fitted with custom camshafts. Two high-performance metal catalysts, a sport exhaust system with front and rear muffler and the precise calibration of the engine management system complete the elaborate conversion.
The STARTECH 3.8 S increased-displacement engine offers exemplary smoothness and environmental friendliness combined with excellent performance: Rated power output jumps from standard 218 hp / 160 kW to 300 hp / 220 kW at 5,750 rpm. Even more important for increased driving fun is the increase in torque: The STARTECH 3.8 S engine produces a peak torque of 395 Nm.
Thus equipped the tuned roadster sprints from rest to 100 km/h in just 6.0 seconds and reaches a top speed of 255 km/h.
