Are you seriously doing either of these things to your vehicle???

Ive put nearly 30k miles on it since I took ownership of mine. Its been modified and tracked since then. 30k miles and never skipped a beat.

Re: 2012 3.6l Rev over 4000?

I'm impressed. So does the transmission hold up to being slammed in gear at 4 grand??? That's brutal.

Also, if your motor can't get above 2300 rpm with power breaking, maybe a higher stall converter would help if available?

And out of curiosity, is drag racing a 5000 lb truck with a small v6 any fun???

If you mean neutral dropping it no I dont do that. Its in gear when I launch it. I run trophy class braket racing and it can be some close racing. Mine comes in on the scales at 4260 lbs. I been looking for a higher stall torque converter for the nag1/3.7 combo but all the have are the hemi ones. Would love a 3k stall as thats where the 3.7 is getting into tbe power band.
