WK 3.7L resonator box removal?

I want to know what's the best way to get rid of the resonator box on my 3.7L. If that's too much work than what's the easiest way? Also any other small tips on quick DIY power would be nice as well.

I want that damned box gone for good lol. Maybe replace it with some tubing to connect it to my CAI I've attached to it. And I also started having some delay on stand still take off lately. I press the gas and for a split second nothing happens then she'll take off somewhat quickly. Any answers for that one?

What year is your rig? I may have an answer if its an o8 and newer...

o5 to o7 you'd likely need a tune to reduce or remove that lag.
o8 to 10 you will need a sprint booster or similar device to modify the signal in the electronic throttle control module. That will greatly reduce and even remove that lag altogether.

For intakes there may be a few intakes out there that will do the job

Well not a tune up but a performance tune....but it probably needs a good tune up. That should help you some. New plugs, sensors, oil....ect...ect lol.

Glad i could provide some help bro!

Re: WK 3.7L resonator box removal?

Hi Strongjeff. Which sensors would you look at replacing? And what is this signal boost gadget you mention?

O2 sensors, map. The Sprint booster is something that plugs into the ect module under the dash and improves throttle response time
