WANTED: 2007 and earlier 3.7/4.7 vehicle for testing...
 
I would like to test another TB modification that could *potentially* further increase mileage and get rid of that nasty RPM hang that these engines tend to do when you rev them in park/neutral.

Problem is, I don't have a Jeep anymore, nor a vehicle that has either one of these engines, so I need to find one that I could test this out on.

I would STRONGLY prefer this test vehicle to be in Central/Southern Florida...The closer to Vero Beach, or Titusville which is actually where I do my porting, the better. The reason for this is that the modification in question may need tweaking to get it just right. I have cores that are compatible with all of the vehicles below so for testing purposes we will be modifying one of my throttle bodies...not yours.

The engines/vehicles could be any of the following:

1999-2007 Grand Cherokees (4.7)
2005-2006 Grand Cherokees (3.7)
1999-2007 Dakotas/Rams/Durangos (4.7)
2004-2006 Rams/Dakotas (3.7)

I would prefer an email, but I will also check my PM inbox.

Id love to help ya out man but I dont think it would work with me living in CO. I meant to get back to you on the intake porting... I cant do it right now. Id love to be the guinea pig but I just dont have the funds. I hope you can get that started tho it seems like a badass mod to help free up some more ponies from these 3.7L

Thank you both but I met with the tester in Orlando yesterday. I put together a crude version of what I wanted to test yesterday, and it is still on the vehicle. We are hoping for slightly improved fuel economy.
