Thumbs up **HOW TO** add a ported TB to your 3.6 V6!

First unplug the negative terminal from the battery under the passenger seat and remove the engine cover


Second...remove intake resonator tube simply by loosening the worm clamp on the intake box and up at the tb. Also unplug the intake temp sensor. Then pull it out

Third....remove the main plug from the the TB and unclip the harness from the tb.

Then remove the 4 t20 torx screws and pull TB off.

This is the 80mm tb(left) vs. stock tb(right)

80mm TB installed

and everything back together


This literally took me 10 minutes from start to finish! Very easy mod even for beginners! Excellent throttle resposne and the truck pulls harder all through the power band even though its 103 degrees here today!!! Go Pro vids to come soon!

Re: **HOW TO** add a ported TB to your 3.6 V6!

Torque and hp curves???? 40 to70mph times??? 0-70mph times? 1/4 times??

Back when FI first came out Big bore throttle bodies were the rage for watercooled VWs and BMWs in the late 70's. Problem was the the TB was progressive and they came out with a single large opening that excelled at peak numbers but on the street and in the real world these TBs hurt performance.

Its the area under the curves that's important.

So any real world numbers????? That can be verified???

Re: **HOW TO** add a ported TB to your 3.6 V6!

are you sure it's not butt dyno or disconnecting the battery made it reset the parameters until it re-learns again like a CAI?

Very sure bro! Not my first vehicle or go around modding a vehicle. I drove it again last evening and throttle response is very improved....revs quicker and is a little quicker off the line.
