well you want to get the engine to breathe better, then tune it to optimize the mods you installed. TB= throttle body. no the mods do not add any additional stress on a motor as you are making it more efficient. i started with the intake, then the exhuast before i stumbled upon the tb

Re: 3.7l performance love

it's not that its sluggish, its how the mods shifted the powerband. theres not much omph below 3k. and once you hit it the power comes on strong im the mid range and keeps pulling till about 5500-5600 before falling off...

decatting the y pipe shifted the torque further up in the powerband over stock, at the track i lost 2tenths of a sec leaving the line but my trap speeds are slightly higher

Re: 3.7l performance love

well if your looking for a good sound, leave the cats on it, and get a dynomax cat back, nice deep sound without being too raspy. that is what i had last and honestly it ran better down low
