2014 3.7 performance upgrades

Hey guys! Got the 4.10 gears and it will be installed in the coming week. Need your suggestions on what can be installed next to add power to my 6 banger.

Current mods
- in my signature below

Planning to get:

- aluminum drive shaft

- Procharger - might take a little more time

- frhp - not that keen

- torque converters - anyone with experience on this? Will this help with performance?

- is there a launch control for v6?

- has anyone tried the nitrous kit? This is perhaps the cheapest way to make our babies run faster but I honestly chickened out after seeing exploding videos of 'professional' drag racers in youtube while they are on nitrous

- is there anyone who builds a custom intake manifold for 2014 models so we can bolt on a grassroots supercharger?

- (cosmetics) - any idea where we can get custom valve covers for our 3.7?

I was in touch with supersix motorsports sometime back... but my wallet is not yet ready for the recommended mods:

Ported cylinder heads: $3750.
Ported upper intake manifold: $300.
Ported lower intake manifold: $400.
4.0L stroker kit: $2995
Rings: $95
Bearings: $175
Anti-friction coating of pistons: $175
Balancing: $250
ARP head studs: $425
ARP main studs: $245
ARP girdle studs: $295
ARP main cap side bolts: $125
BBK 73mm throttle body: $400

Appreciate your comments / suggestions in advance!

Thanks guys!

If by grassroots you mean twin screw supercharger, it physically wont fit. The 3.7 is a 60* crank, where as the 5.0 is 90*, meaning theres just physically not enough room in the valley of the 3.7 for a roots / twinscrew blower.

The gear will require a tuner. Then do the ADS. It's a 10th @ the track and a few mpg on the road. Smart $$.

Nothing so far as far as Intake manifolds for Any year 3.7 from 2011-2014 ( they all use the same motor). Tune, gears and headers will give you the best power increase. Next get your intake ported. I hear it will get you an extra 10 hp if you port both lower and upper manifolds but I think if you do the upper you will see a small gain as well.

Got the 4.10 gears but the tune is pending from mpt. Wondering what will happen if I install the 4.10 gear and load the tune after a day or two.

Your speed readings won't be accurate. It'll read a much higher speed than you are really traveling.

Any thoughts on this?

- is there a launch control for v6?

As long as you a/f ratio is right, nitrous is very safe to use. I've had it on many cars and the instant power is extremely addictive!

1. Your cars shift schedule will be very out of whack until the tune is updated for the gears. It will drive, but it wont be happy, and I certainly don't suggest flooring it until the proper tune is one there.


2. The stock converter in the 6 is extremely lazy, I imagine there are gains to be had with a nicer one. I drive a stick however, so as far as which one, that's beyond me, but circle D seems to be the brand everyone chooses.


3. I don't know if theres launch control since its an auto. Your options are basically footbrake or Transbrake. I launch my GF's car off the foot brake (left foot on brake, right foot on gas...) at about 1500 rpms, and it launches well. Its not rocket science.


4. Nitrous all comes down to the tune. As far as things blowing up, you likely wont be running a 250+ shot like those guys are, at 50-100 I wouldn't sweat it. Also, the V6 manifold design is set up nicely for nitrous. The plenum for the intake manifold sits over the runners, promoting flow down into the cylinders, and (hopefully) not allowing any excess fuel and/or nitrous to pool in the plenum and backfire. You'll also have less of a chance of back firing since you're an auto, keeps you off the rev limiter.

MPT has adjustments that you can change the gear ratio in the tuner yourself before loading your tune, among other things.
