I had other projects take priority...

Im not talking boost. You'd need to spend another 5k just to prep the engine to handle boost. 5psi will blow the rings and 5 psi is basically useless and good for maybe 75 hp

Haha, all valid points that are probly lost on some. I was mainly joking, but it can be done. It would take a wad of cash to get the engine to tolerate it tho, like you said. You'd have to start with forged pistons and then you'd want to do the heads because, why not if you're goin that deep, then the charger kit and everything that's gonna go with that... You'd realistically be into the entire project $5-$10k, and at that point you're better off just trading up to a Hemi for the same power you'd be trying to make out of the 3.7, unless you'd just be doing it to say you did/could and for the uniqueness factor that no one else probly has... I think Kenne Bell made a kit a while back but realized quickly that the 3.7 couldn't handle it so they pulled it. I think they popped a couple of 3.7's pretty quick while testing.

Uniqueness and on 10 to 12 psi you can get 500 rwhp on a good tune. Mine being lighter would be as fast as greenwayer's jeep.

And you are correct that k/b was prototyping a sc kit. They were doing it on a 03 liberty. Blew the rings out on 5psi but before it did, put down 302 to the wheels on the inefficient 42rfe trans
