3.7 owners, website you need, and an article you should read.

First up, I own myself a 2013 3.7 Mustang and have always loved it. The power delivery is smooth, and more than not stability at top revs is oddly, perfect.

Ive driven all sorts, and had my hands in all kinds. So, I like having options.

After what seemed like a disparaging amount of time looking for proper upgrades and parts for our cars, I found a rather interesting website.

First, the website:
Super Six Motorsports - V6 products that make your life faster

They sell Ported heads, stroker kits, etc for the 3.7 and offer some options I have not seen in a lot of places.

Secondly the article:
http://www.supersixmotorsports.com/_...ne-tech-v2.pdf

This article gets into the nit and gritty of our engines as well as the ecoboost variants, and talks advantages, disadvantages, weak points, and strengths.


May be nothing, but It seemed worth sharing to a good community such as this.

Very nice, always good to find more technical data on our motors.
Thanks for letting us know

Thanks for sharing this. The 3.7 needs a stroker crank really bad. This would increase low end torque a bunch right where it is really needed. At 3.60" it would still be rev happy and make street driving way more fun. 3K is pricy but if rebuilding one, this is the way to go.

Every once in a while I go to that site and wonder... I'd really like to get the whole shooting match with the ported lower intake, heads and cams... I just wonder how much power they put out, as there are no dyno numbers there.

I would also love to see dyno results too, but I know that they have the fastest 3.7 NA so far

I am thinking of ported lower intake after I do my gears! I wonder if they have any dyno results.

What the heck is a stroker crank?

Holy god, did you see some of the prices? Why not just but a pro charger and call it a day. 400 plus rwhp case closed.

A crank that lengthens the stroke of your engine. You would also need new rods. An engines displacement is determined by the length of the stroke and the size of the combustion chamber.

Because if you could get anywhere near 350 rwhp NA that would be a fast car and have none of the headaches or reliability issues of FI.

How much rwhp and torque are the cams giving on a dyno.

I don't believe they have any dyno results yet. Just some track runs
