I have searched and it seems most are more interested in making the engine louder or changing the tone of the engine. At least that seems the goal of most installing a CAI or Cat-back exhaust, etc.

I want the Outland to be "stronger" at the low end. Any thoughts on upgrades that can be done without tearing into the engine like a supercharger?
With more low end being your interest be very studious about any exhaust mods. Less restriction from either less "obstacles" in the system or larger pipe diam will rob low end torque but give it back +/- in the mid+ range...but it will sound cool

Re: What are the best three power upgrades for the 3.6L V6?

Why did I not buy the v8? Good question. First, it is a more than $3,000 additional cost. Second, Gas will go up, and I do not want a 13-16 mpg truck when gas goes back over $3.50/gal. It is not a matter of if, it is a matter of when. Third, I drove the v6 and v8 and was surprised how peppy the v6 felt.

I am just looking for a little more low end grunt. I do not need a v8 power boost, but a little bit more v6 power would be nice. Something I can do in my driveway and mods costing less than $1,000 would be nice.

TO be honest, I am shocked the v6 has not been worked on because it accounts for more than 80% of Jeep GC sold.

Exactly, and 75+% of those never pop the hood.

Re: What are the best three power upgrades for the 3.6L V6?

There are benefits to the pentastar, while not as much appreciated as the power that the hemi delivers... The Hemi is old and that means it's HEAVY! I read somewhere online that the pentastar handles slightly better and stops about 15 feet shorter than the hemi. So agility is something gained. If only it wasn't gutless on torque like the rest of the V6's in the class. The Traverse/Acadia/Enclave, Explorer, Pathfinder and I'm sure there's a few more... All down on torque it's like a trend among the SUVs in this class. They'd probably get better mpg if they had more torque. It wouldn't take half a tank of gas to get the pig moving if had some torque. But that's just my opinion.
