If you're abandoning the 6, I might be interested is some of the bolt on improvements you've made. Nothing too rad, its a daily driver. I see you're just south of Detroit..not too bad of a drive.

It's been great what you've done with the six. I like it because I should be able to get much better mileage with it with some tweaks and the power is decent.
Yeah brotha, im leaving the six. I havent yet decided what to do with it yet once its out. Ive come down to two options on it.

One, part it out

Two, refresh the motor and sell it as complete.

As of this post its only got 95,540 miles on it, never been opened.

I am leavin the 6, but cost for cost to hit my power goals makes the hemi far more apealing plus the more reliable option. That said, i will still support the 3.7 owners here in tuning and advice since i have intimate knowlege on the platform.

It would need new gaskets all over and the valve train would need to be refreshed as well as i think it was begining to show signs of wear.

Re: Project "Six Shooter" Build Thread

So heres a preliminary shopping list.

03 to 08 5.7 short block
Eighter 09 eagle heads or 6.1 heads (im leaning 6.1. Nearly the same flow as the eagles but with a better valvetrain setup)
6.1 valvetrain.
Likely a comp xfi 268 or a srt max cam
Im debating the 6.1 intake manifold or the truck 5.7 manifold and porting it.
Mopar pcm, paramount tcm
Main engine harness
Radiator and ac condensor
Lx platform bellhousing to mate the motor to my trans
Possibly a stage 2 nag1 (for reliability sake)
Hhp or arrington solid motor mounts
Mopar or s.o.s. ign coils
Srt fuel system
All coolant and ac hoses
All engine accesories
Ill talk to billet tech on getting the rest of the catch can kit for the hemi
Kooks catless long tubes
Eighter the magnaflow or corsa catbacks

Im sure i forgot something but this should net me a running motor and with a tune should place me between 400 to 450 rwhp

Re: Project "Six Shooter" Build Thread

So ive found a complete short block with new rotating assembly for 600 plus 150 shipped. And i found 6.1 edelbrock rpm performer heads for 1300 shipped off summit. I want the 6.1 head for the near eagle flow rates and the better valvetrain. Also i want the smaller 73cc chamber to bump the compression a little up to 10.75 to 11.0 to 1 im thinking and srt max cam setup as that will fit the head a little better. I also located a edelbrock victor efi intake manifold and fuel rail for about 1200 or so

Re: Project "Six Shooter" Build Thread

WOW!!!!

Thanks a lot for this Thread!!!

I inherited my Wife's 2005 JGC 5.7 Hemi that we bought new because She needed a 3rd row for the new and additional Grand "Kiddy"....

She went for a 2017 Nissan Pathfinder "Midnight Edition"...[Black-on-Black]...

Me?...I am trying to update the 2005 JGC by addressing certain cosmetic issues and Leather Wrapped Star Tech design options that I saw that may have "came-and-went" over the 12 years we owned our vehicle...

My Long Time Jeep Dealer just e-mail me a PDF copy of my JGC Build sheet...

I really think it is going to come in handy in the upcoming months...

Especially as parts for my vehicle become more "scarce" or the color of parts for my vehicle become more "scarce"...

What ever happened to "Dark Khaki"? Why did Mopar discontinue a majority of different parts molded in that color?

Anyone know if there are paints on the market that will ["exactly"] match and be applied with an airbrush?

Thanks again...
