Well ive been on the forum for some time now and ive never heard of a t stat screwing an engine. Trust id rather have a cooler running engine for them high speed runs

Re: 3.7l performance love

Damn Jeff! I was just looking at your six shooter thread. How much money you put into your 3.7!!! Damn! You have links to your current pics?

I'll have to shoot you pics of mine. I put quite a bit of money into mine too. Exterior and Interior. Not a complete SRT8 clone but a hybrid. I think mine came out pretty nice.

My next will be a SRT8 though.

Re: 3.7l performance love

I look forward to getting this tune done. Hyperteck unit is on the way to me. +25 HP gain should be quite noticeable.
