Did you end up getting your headers from your uncle I live in Inglewood ca wondering if this ever happened?!

Re: How to increase power output on a stock 3.7 V6

Ask 'Strogjeff, he's got aftermarket bolt on headers on his. I have customs on my 5.7 with a complete matching cat. back and they're worth ~30-40 hp on it. Your's would be somewhat less with a complete matching cat. back, but Jeff should be able to give you a pretty good idea. IMO, definitely one of the best bangs for the bucks, and a good foundation for future performance mods.

We've talked I know he's running liberty headers if I'm correct which I plan on getting but wanted to see what other options someone else came up with

there is no other option on our 3.7's. other then the liberty JBA's, you could have custom ones made. that would likely be more expensive....

....I have toyed with the idea tho of taking a pair of jba's and turning them into long tubes. but on my setup they would be marginally better unless I can get a tune done to better use them. my current setup has the best flow possible on a 3.7 with out doing head work....
