Intake Manifold

Is there anyone out there who can tell me if there is a high performance intake manifold for the 2012 V6? If so who makes it, and how can I get one?

I don't think so. I think there is someone working on one but can't remember who it was.

Would be nice if somebody would put one out. Kinda hard to do much without one.

Yes, there is one being engineered for our V6 right now. Lengthy thread, but good reading:

Honestly there aren't much gains to be had from intake manifolds on either 3.7 or the 4.0!! Cause on both the runners go are long and go straight down into the port which is usually the basis for any v8 hi po intake design.

Long for torque and direct for horsepower, not gona find a much better balanced one than stock cause nothing feels worse than lost torque!

I would concure. However, most folks are after looks over performance, which the aftermarket thrives on these days.

Very true! But if you want looks then just get the ford engine cover

What are some good exhaust mods that won't void my warranty or fail emissions testing?

I'd get some Borla Axle backs. They are the best sounding/best quality exhaust for the 3.7 IMHO

I was under the impression that you don't get a whole lot of HP gain from axle back exhaust

What about with a cat back? Significantly more or no?

Depends on what kind, like my catback got me 16rwhp and 23rw torque but it's a straight through design with minimal restriction. But say a Borla ATAK catback will net you probably 8-10HP without a midpipe but add an x-pipe to that catback combo and you could see about 15HP gain

Does that affect the emissions test at all or does it stay within reg? My ultimate goal is to get at least 305+ at the wheels

From what I've been reading to get that you're going to have to break the law on the exhaust. CAI, tune, LT headers, O/R X pipe and cat back. That combined looks to get anywhere from 285 rwhp - 297rwhp. Haven't seen any V6 with over 300 rwhp N/A yet, but I keep looking.

R u serious? My car stock did 276HP to the wheels. I have everything u mentioned and waiting for our dyno day but i cant believe after all the mods i can only make 20HP difference like u state. With tune to bring it all together i think i would be making more than 310HP to the wheels at least!

-____- really bro? So ur saying a full bolt on "newer" 5.0 will not have much to improve on? Or a full bolt on "newer" 3.7 wont make much improvements? Wow bro thats honestly a very big uneducated assumption. No disrespect but last i checked a full bolt on V6 N/A does 11's which to most track guys is impressive for a N/A V6. A stock 5.0 in my area will do 12.7-12.9 so for a 3.7 to beat a stock 5.0 that has 100HP more is great. So if u don't mind next time please just do a little more research bro. No offense intended its just annoying when someone says we cant do something just cuz our newer cars don't have big blocks or too high tech unlike back in the day.

No I'm just saying its getting harder to net gains out of cars cause there already so good from factory...just chill out. And no a bolt ons 3.7 will not run 11s...AM procharged their 3.7 to get into the 11s sooo

My big thumb pressed 1 instead of 2 so my bad meant 12!!! a 3.7 has done 12's obviously not in my ****ty area. My area 5.0's do high 12's where i have seen stock 5.0's do low 12's

But ur still very wrong. From the factory there is easily 15HP left on the table by ford that a simple tune can get you. So if JUST a tune can get u 15HP a Tune, full exhaust (headers, xpipe, catback, mufflers) CAI, TB, and New Driveshaft, should easily get his 3.7L to pass that 305 mark he's wanting

I would have to agree here. I'm pretty sure I can get 305+ without having to do as much as was mentioned before. Upgrading shouldn't be all that difficult either, I just want my money spent in the right places

Wanted to throw out some "facts"... cant trust the internet 100%

Fastest NA 3.7 that I can find runs a 12.77 in the 1/4... That's CAI,LT, full exhaust, no cats, M/T ET streets on the rear, skinniest up front, LCA,UCA... And then some stuff to lighten up the car.

If you want the most out of your car then you have to look at the big picture. It's a combination of things that will net the fastest times and higher HP. If your just after HP then keep up with the bolt on's and get a custom tune made once you have everything you want. That will get you the most.

If you want 1/4 mile time then you need to look at suspension for starters... LCA's go a long way when it comes to putting the power down....and rear tires, probably #1 on the "how to consistently put power down" list

If your still interested in more power and have the $ then go talk to the guys over at super six... They are about to do some work for me for a heck of a good price as soon as I can afford to have the car down for a week.

Now I need to find a quality cold air intake that's not gonna bust my wallet

---------- Post added at 02:31 PM ---------- Previous post was at 02:30 PM ----------

I'm also looking at the Razzi body kit for the V6. Seems like a sweet deal. $1099 repainted, haven't found anything that tops that yet

Thats a non tune required, if he wants the best bang for the buck then he needs a tune required. I believe only steeda makes one

Does steeda retain the cold air port from the grille?

No sir thats why i kept my airaid because thats a really neat trick to get actual cold air from the outside unlike the boxed ones that just get hot air from the engine bay.

Exactly so even though it doesn't need a tune I guarantee if you did a dyno with the hood closed then the Airaid would net higher gains than the Steeda

I doubt it. As long as you dont remove the inlet tube for the air then the car will still let it alot of cold air and it flows directly to the intake filter.
