V6 automatic off the line power

Just ordered a jlt intake and a bans tune and was wondering his much better off the line I will be and what else I can do do increase power at lower Rpms . Even with 280 torque and 305 hp I feel like if should be faster ?

Re: V6 automatic off the line power

I don't know the specifics, but If you have the 93 race tune plus the CAI, you should gain somewhere in the neighborhood of 15 hp +/- (but gains vary between intakes, so check JLT's site, and DYNO charts if they have them) You can gain just a couple of HP's with a new exhaust, and a couple of HP's with an aluminum driveshaft. The driveshaft though will allow you to take the limiter off of the top speed of the engine and allow you to get your top speed past 140 mph, with your current setup. Past that, there's sparkplugs, and the mother of all upgrades, the supercharger. But be prepared to pony up 5K for that one and you can forget all about your warranty.

Re: V6 automatic off the line power

this 3.7 is in serious need of a 2800 stall converter.

you can see in dyno charts, and feel on the street that the motor is relatively gutless under 3k rpm. Adjusting the torque management via the tune will certainly help a lil, but its still gonna be a lil limp down low.

a 2800 stall (and tires that grip) would knock this car down a full second in the 1/4 I guarantee that

FYI....you arent looking for HP. You are looking for TQ. down and dirty, below the curve torque is what gets you there.

No, its a PITA. Depends on how your level of wrenchin is, but its not easy by any means. The torque converter is what mates the engine and trans. Besides giving you a real launch, it multiplies the torque to get your heavy beast moving quicker.

Expect 300-600 for install. I havent looked in awhile but the part will also be 400-500. Ive never installed one (with drag radials) that didnt get me at least a second in the 1/4. Mind you, most of mine were in LS1s and were of teh 3600-3800 rpm variety.

and...your warranty, all of it will be over.

if the above makes you timid and you'd rather spend your $ at the gas station, broken up by each fillup rather than all at once you would be better off throwin a set of 373s or 410s in the rear end. Wont get as much of a gain, but youll certainly get a huge improvement and the fun factor is huge
