How long do you think this will take you to finish and will this be a straight bolt on will some slight modification be need it?
Thanks again for giving us little V6 guys a chance.
No thank you, we look forward to supplying the community with it. The Wrangler guys are eating it up.
Realistically the we will need a least a month to R&D and the a month to full test, providing all electronic tuning parameters solid. Then a month or so to get product on the shelf. Our goal is a 3.6 GC and Durango by December for a January sale.
All our kits are minimally invasive with not cutting and hacking at the vehicle. They are also fully equipped with all the supporting mods needed to run the vehicle. Preliminary build list looks very much like our Wrangler.
- Vortech V3 Si Trim (Self Contained)
- Blow Off Valve
- Plug and Play Injectors (New Siemens)
- Front Mounted Intercooler
- Boost Piping
- Diablo Pre-Programmed Intune (RIPP Tuning Included)
- Powder Coated Mounting Brackets
- Gates Belt
- Air Filter
- 4 Ply Black Couplers
- Vacuum lines
- Fully Illustrated Color Instructions
- 1 Year Warranty
- Tech line with Customer Service

We don't see why not, the trans architecture cannot be weaker than the 42RL found in the 07-11 Wrangler and we've kept those running for years on large tires and very heavy rigs.
Remember, a centrifugal supercharger by nature is a "lazier" compressor, the V3 happens to be a very good balance with respect to quick spool time and full set boost. But still not heavy to hit like a positive displacement compressor (roots or screw type). To that extent the engine and drive-trian are not shocked with power off idle or at any time and inherently less stressful. Instead they deliver a very progressive boost curve which is much more manageable to the entire power plant and from a tuning stand point.
Not to mention to some degree we can shape the power with tuning and always keep the trans integrity, MPG and over all reliability as the governing goal and max power is shaped based on it.
Please filter this through we have sold 1000+ of the 3.6 Pentastar Wrangler kits with positive reviews world wide (literally)
