Well, I don't know why there's so little interest in the 3.6L engine, I'm sure there are a million of us out here with it. But I am one who only a mere two weeks ago never thought about any mods for my Limited.

I'm hoping I can get some chatter started in the 3.6 corner of this site. There's so much valuable information everywhere else on this site, but it seems as if there's little to no interest in probably Chrylser's most sold engine period.

Admittedly, I'm a rookie at everything I intend to do. But hey, let's get down to the basics. From what I gather, that entails: CAI, upgraded exhaust, tuner, spacer, and CC.

It's taken me a year and a half, but the first mod was accomplished after being introduced to CAI's at work


I think K&N's CAI has made a tremendous improvement in performance, and my motor sounds great when I put my foot on the gas(maybe an exaggeration, but hey I said I was a rookie).

When it's come to my cars, I haven't been much of a "do it yourself'er". But that K&N CAI really got me going, and I've been lusting for bigger and better things than this 3.6L for quite awhile.

But I love my car, and will need an everyday car regardless right? This one is here to stay, so I might as well put in some work.

5. Airaid PowerAid TB Spacer
6. Power Stop Street Warrior Brake Kit

8. New Grill
9. Pedal Covers

*Ordered all within 5 days*

Just wanna say, all I've got on so far are my TB spacer and CAI, and I've already noticed a tremendous difference in sound, responsiveness, and power.

You shoulda just sent me the money for the TB spacer and I would have told you have you gained 5hp.
I don't doubt it. Pretty sure I wasted $215 on that Billet Technology Signature Series catch can as well, but hey it looks cool.

In all honesty, I've been riding around with just that K&N CAI for two weeks, and when I installed the Airaid TB Spacer today I actually did hear and feel a slight improvement. I know it's peanuts in comparison to my dream 6.4L, but that's why I'm posting this in the 3.6L section of this site. Plus it's great practice for when I do get my SRT in a couple years.

I completely understand it's just that tests have been done and the throttle body spacer of today is NOT the same intake manifold spacer of the 60's.

In primitive forms of fuel injection (such as throttle body injection or old-fashioned carburetor models), where fuel was sprayed directly at the throttle body and then mixed with the air immediately before being routed to the cylinders, then perhaps a spacer would be of some benefit. However, the technology used in today's multi-point fuel injection system precludes any useful effect from such a device. The chances that the air would still be feeling the effects of a vortex by the time it got through the intake to the cylinder are very low.

Not trying to bash you or anything. Just trying to teach/help. We all gotta start somewhere.

My Power Stop Street Warrior Brake Kit did arrive

Still waiting on my MGP Brake Caliper Covers that I ordered off of AutoAnything.com, where I've purchased most of everything in this thread.

Gotcha, thanks for the insight. Also I wasn't trying to be combative, but I honestly do question whether most of what I'm doing is even worth the efforts.

I'm married to this vehicle now though, it's the best I've ever owned so I'm gonna do whatever I can to pimp it out :smileup:

No I understood what you were saying. It's just tough to explain things sometimes over the web and I don't like to look like the guy who's shitting on everyone.

Nice rotors and pads BTW. Let us know how you like them once you get a 1000 miles on 'em.

Tuned the 3.6 today with the Trinity, broke out the Escort 9500ix, and had a ball up and down I-75 :smileup:

Can't wait to get into the shop, still got work to put in, most notably that Borla Cat Back Exhaust. Video will be accompanying that mod.

Still no chatter eh?

I have nothing to contribute since I don't have a 3.6, but I at least read through the thread. That counts for something, right? :D

Ha. At this point you might as well start your own build thread.
Well my list is only a fraction of what yours is, and I promise it will stay that way.

I really hoped to start some chatter on the 3.6L models, I saw a whole lot of complaining about DS not having a tune for our motor; and a bunch of debating back and forth about whether this motor is even worth the effort.

I intend to answer those questions in this thread, while having a little fun at the same time but still not over-stepping my boundaries.

My dream is to "attempt" to put together a SRT somewhat close to the level of your beast, and for a guy who's never touched his vehicles I figured this is great practice.

Let it be known, I don't even believe for one second that this thread is even worthy of being called a bootleg version of your build thread. We're not even in the same stratosphere.
