2010 4.0L V6 Mod Advice

Anybody have and suggestions on what I should get next. I was thinking about a SCT Tuner, LTH, or 3.73 gears. I do a lot o high way driving so the gears might not be the best choice and I don't want to ruin my gas mileage. Any other suggestions?

Oh snap. Are those 5.0 badges I see on the OP's V6 4.0 model? No freaking way. I must be seeing things. OP, what does that side emblem on your V6 read bro. 4.0 right?

Holy sheeet. I just blown up the picture and that's a 5.0 emblem on the car. Holy crap batman. You have got to be kidding me. No F ing way bro. I'm sorry bro , your ride looks sweet and that's the ultimate tool bag wanna be poser, douch bag move.

Come on man, take that crap off.

For shame OP, that is just plain wrong! Have you even thought about what to say when someone with a tiny bit of car knowledge asks you why your 5.0 sounds like a 6 cylinder? That's gonna be awkward to say the least! Your next mod should be to GET THEM OFF!!!! Then your ride will look good!

OP, I can see your new to this site with only 5 posts but no way you could think you won't get a load of a$$ chewing crap about you having 5.0 badges on your V6 model. For Pete sake man, have some pride in your ride and take that garbage off. You don't have a 5.0 so why put the 5.0 badge on? Wow, come on bro.

Popping some popcorn right now. This is going to be entertaining.

As for the question. Unless you have a shop that will do your tuning for you, you will need to tune for your gear installation. I suggest going with a tune/gear combo. You will save some money in the long run. I myself went with 3.55 gears. I do a lot of highway driving myself and I didn't see much of a decline in gas mileage.

2010 4.0L V6 Mod Advice

I get a Boner every time I see a GT and wish I would've pulled the trigger. I still love my Sixxer though. I can only imagine me walking up next to it when he starts the engine, and me falling on the ground laughing from what I heard

A lot of you all will be happy to know that that is a old picture. I did think I was cool for a few days until a real 5.0 pulled up next to me and made my 4.0 sound like a go cart.

Whatttt! An old picture. Ba ha ha ha ha! Good try my young padawan. You could of taken 200 different new pictures of your pony and you just happen to post the old picture with the 5.0 emblems. Wink wink its the old picture explanation fellas.

The old picture not the current one but old. Define old. Like old picture from 4 hours ago old. Ha ha ha! Its okay young grasshopper. Just remove that wrongful emblem off your 4.0 V6 and let's start fresh bro.

Let's see your cars current pose without the 1 liter higher emblem on it. Ha ha ha

Don't be ashamed of the 4.0. Just get some 4.0 badges.

Side note: don't know if it would've been worse to put 3.7 badges on it.

The thing about the badges is that what if you race some honda ricer at the drag strip and they happen to win, they will see the 5.0 badges and think they actually beat a 5.0 (most ricers aren't too smart to tell that there is a sound difference and such). Then he tells the story to everyone he knows how he demolished a 5.0 Mustang, when in reality there is almost a 200 horsepower difference between that 1 Liter.

Just be proud to have a 4.0 and put some of those badges on.
