Ported Throttle Body installed

I just installed a Fastman ported TB and boy what a difference it made. My 3.7 V6 jeep feels like it has more low end power and it doesn't seem to have any lag in acceleration anymore. I think that either Fastman or Flyin Ryan ported throttle bodies are worth every dime for the amount of performance gain you get.

I paid $190 shipped for a used ported core.
new ported cores are about $245 shipped.
Here is where I got mine: http://www.thefastman.com/index.asp

He already has the used cores and once you order one he ports it and ships it the next day so your jeep doesn't have any downtime, you can still send him yours if you dont mind the downtime and waiting for a few days to get it back.I would email him or give him a call if your interested in a used ported core, because his site doesn't have an option for ordering a used one.

Gotcha, was checking to see if you were selling your stock TB or solid it back to the fastman.

Re: Ported Throttle Body installed

09 3.7 here bro? You looking to sell your core?

Chris I think Irf has a spare core for your year he got ported that wouldn't fit his 08 jeep.
