Pentastar TB ordered for porting/testing
 
I managed to get access to a 3.6 Pentastar V6 TB, should be coming this week. In the next few weeks I will be porting it and sending it to a friend in Louisiana who has access to a Chrysler 200. We will be testing at a track for a no-BS assessment of how Chryslers new engine reacts to more airflow.

Due to a catalog error, the correct part # is now on the way....Its on backorder and had to be special ordered. It'll be a few weeks.

FINALLY received my Pentastar TB. I'm never dealing with FactoryMopar.com again.

This is a very impressive TB out of the box, It is 75mm at the inlet, and likely about 74mm at the blade. Thats the same size as the 08-10 4.7 . Its not much smaller than the Hemi TB.

Based off of what Im seeing with my calipers I should be able to put on an approximately 3-3.5mm taper on the inlet. We will see how it performs, although which the casting already being very large Im not sure how much room for improvement there is.

Finally ported this one out. Inlet is 78.5mm, backside is 78mm. No word on how large the 3.6 manifold inlet is so i played it safe.

Should be sending it to my buddy Ben this week, who will be doing the testing.

Should be hearing later this week on how this thing does.

This thing finally got installed this weekend. So far, on a stock Chrysler 200, throttle response improve noticeably and the throttle lag is reduced. Unfortunately without additional mods the capability of this piece is restrained somewhat.
