Chips are for potatoes & poker! What ur looking for is a tuner! A tune will wake up that 3.7..it'll increase hp, tq & throttle response! Check out american muscle!
Ur in the wrong section btw u want the 2010-2014 v6 section for the 3.7.

Chip = disappointment

Tuner = unleashing the real potential of your stang and mods.

You get the same performance with a chip as a handheld, they can hold the same tune (-_('''')

Downside to an SCT chip is you have to mail it off for a retune, that's about it..

Anyways, I can get you setup with a great handheld and tune if you like OP, send me a pm if you're interested

I'd rather go tuner than chip. If you need a tune you can get it quicker than you would a chip. And you can hold tunes in the tuner I believe

My last statement sounds dumb, ignore

since this is in the pre 05 section I assume you mean 3.8L, the tuner will help but not much. Just be prepared to get a boost but probably not what you expected with a good custom tune.

I've learned that if you go with bama you will get a decent tune, but you won't squeeze out everything you can from the car. Their good but not the best. Go to a good tuner. I'm going to get a custom tune once I get some things done to my car. David's recommending him, and he knows his stuff so no bama for me
