LMAO yeah Dodge took that idea and look at its success!
I used to get this when I had a 2.2 S10, It was gutless. But I kept on working on it and valuing it as if it were a million dollar supercar. I'd add on new parts when I can, even though I was probably making 150-160hp up from 117 stock, I was satisfied!
I believe you should mod it! The 3.7 has been around for ages, 210hp is a start! Double what my old truck had basically! Swap out your muffler, get a chip, and a CAI to start. You can build your own Cold Air intake. (See Wermbang's DIY on how to do it)
People would typically make fun of you, but once you do this, you could do various things such as headers and or cutouts (i havent looked online for them, but im sure there is some around, or you could get them custom fabricated like I did)
With a free flowing intake and exhaust, you should expect a lot more torque and top end. Get the tuner/chip last, and this will go PERFECTLY with these mods.
Look into a bigger intake manifold aswell, if they don't make one for your engine, you can sometimes take the manifolds off of other vehicles and bolt it on up.
After all of these bolt-ons go for Internals, cams, heads, etc.
Maybe a little N20? Hmm?
Im sure you could push 300hp at the crank for sure. Just work at it! The 3.7 is what you got, the 3.7 is what you'll work with! Just have fun with it.
