Stroker Kit or, Ported TB, Exhaust, I also heard Superchips might be making one for the 3.7L, CAI, Turbo!

The 3.7 internals can not handle a turbo or any forced induction. Stick with the bolt ons- ported tb, cai, muffler etc...

Cold air intake, exhaust,ported TB, powerwire, high performance spark plugs, and a 180* thermostat-all will help. I wouldn't bother messing with the internals,there's no way you can squeeze much more power out of the v6 without having two extra cylinders. If power is what you want, test drive a 4.7 v8 and a 5.7 hemi and see if thats what you want,theres no way the v6 will ever match the v8 especially the hemi.:thumbsup:

High Performance spark plugs can damage the Stock Pistons. It can lead to other problems too. Just saying....

on a 4.7 or 3.7, don't bother unless you live in EXTREME heat (south Florida, Arizona, SoCal, etc) or are running some sort of tuning software. Any one of you that are running SCT, B&G, DSP, Superchips....you need one ASAP.

the thermostats can also be modified for lower temps by drilling the housing of the stat.

this was located on another thread about this. I haven't done it as we barely reach 95-100 degrees in the summer.

Air Ram has ported heads for the 3.7 in either economy or performance prep.

overall I have found that If i really wanted more power than a jeep with a 3.7, i shouldn't have gotten an jeep with it. Of course I would love to have a 5.7 or 6.1 but when I was purchasing I couldn't afford one. Yes there are small mods that can be done to add a few HP here and there but overall its a V6. If i have a strong need or demand for more power i am going to have to go get a jeep with a 4.7, 5.7 or 6.1.

I did just get a ported TB by Ryan and its awesome. I want to get an intake. I have the powerwire also. After that I have to say that my jeep is going to be as fast as its ever going to be without major modifications and $$$$

I think if you do the basic mods, intake, TB, PowerWire, and exhaust, you'll be happy with the gains.

Just my opinion.
