Default Different Mods?

I'm sure this question has been asked a few times...

But what kind of mods can I do to my truck to perform better? Some inexpensive...but quality things I can add/change to increase what's under the hood? Any suggestions would be appreciated!

With the 3.7 your pretty limited . Like you've probably already found out , theres not much out there . I think Randy(Ramtech) was even experimenting with trying to modify a throttle body from a 4.7 to fit on his 3.7 .

That's definitely a bummer. I know there are few of us on this forum. I was just thinking of a k&n filter...and maybe an exhaust system. As to which system...I'm not sure.

I'm in the same boat, so I'm interested to see what suggestions other members have. I was also thinking K&N and new exhaust to begin with.

That seems to be pretty much it for the 3.7L unfortunately, either an intake or good drop in filter and exhaust.

Default Dodge Ram 1500 v6 3.7l

This is my first post here so please bare with me. I see alot of question on mods for This Truck. The mods are so worth the money. I now have added a Cat Back exhuast to mine and a K N CIA and all I can say is wow. This Little engine has a boat of power with the right mods. Im putting on new headers next week that will make it that much more. Called my Local dealer and asked if any of this will affect my warranty and the answer is nope. There is no Chip out at this time but a chip will void a warranty, unless you no how to clean your trucks CPU memory completly stay away from them, by just pulling it and setting the truck back to factory setting wont erase the record that something broke when the chip was in.

2011 Dodge Ram 1500 v6 3.7L, Smitty built back nerf bars, Choas 5 wheels, CAT back Exhuast with magnaflow muffler, K N Cold air intake, Jensen all in one Deck, Nav,DVD,USB,Backup Cam, AV x 2, Hands Free Blu tooth, Truck Color Rugged Brown. More mods To Come.... If anyone wants to see a pic of any of it let more know and I will post pics..

Wow, some nice mods on your 3.7L, we'd definitely like to see some pics! You might want to change your profile info, too so it shows your correct engine size, but welcome to the forum and be sure to stop by the Newbie Checkin and intoduce yourself to everyone!

The older 3.7's have the possibility of custom tuning, depends on whether your PCM is compatible. Email hemifever, he's done quite a few. My wife's Liberty has the 3.7 and I was able to do this.
