Default Power Restrictions

I guess this has been asked millions of times before, but its my turn now.

I got the 5.9ltr Mopar magnum v8. done a cat back custom exhaust, I am about to do a Induction kit.

But what I am wondering is there any restrictors on this engine that can be disconnected or removed or tweeked so you can get more power?

Many thanks

Intake and headers will definitely help. As will a little port matching on the intake and exhaust side of the head.

In your exhaust you could remove some restriction at the catalytic converters by going to a set if higher flow converters.

Next step would be to do heads, cam, rockers or maybe even go to a 408 forged stroker with a mild cam, ported heads, etc...

Moving the IAT sensor closer to the throttle body will improve throttle response. The current location is not a restriction, per se, but this will improve things a bit. The vehicle will feel better off the line to you.

You are welcome, Dann!

Hmmmm I like the sound of the sensor moving, I am a quarter mile demon I love shooting off from the lights. So what does this sensor look like and were can it be found, If its not too much trouble a picture would be nice.

Pic is not visible to me at this remote location, Dann. I'll have to look at it tonight.

Normally, the IAT sensor is located in the intake tube between the filter and your throttle body. It has a small two wire harness off the backside of it. There may be a grommet in the intake tube that it slips into.

The only restrictions to moving it would be to close up the old hole, make sure your new hole is the same size to accept the stock grommet/IAT sensor and that you have enough wire harness length to get to the new location.

IAT is on the intake manifold located on the passenger side, front runner. you will need to plug the hole if you move it, 1/4" NPT iirc. if you re-locate the IAT, it has to be placed after the filter. otherwise the readings will be scewed significantly. if you remove the cats, the computer will know it and set a MIL code. if you have to pass an emissions test you will fail. id keep a full exhaust though, headers and 2.25 to 2.5" true duals. the Y-pipe is a main restriction.
