Hello everyone. Just joined here after doing some research for the better part of the night.

I'm a computer tech, so bare with me as I don't know too much about engines.

Anyways, onto my topic. I have an 04 SXT with a 3.7, after getting a new bumper today and doing the first work on a car other than changing a tire, I decided to see what I can do with my truck.

Basically my question is, what upgrades are possible for a 3.7. I would prefer the easy ones to start off with. My truck already has dual exhaust(Unsure of what brand, came with the truck) and a K&N Filter, I have also slightly modded the intake to be a little more direct, rather than coming in from behind my headlights.

I have seen links for Throttle Bodies, even though I'm not even 100% what they are. So if somebody could explain the gains I could recieve from that I would appreciate it. And any other(preferably easy) mods I could do to gain some extra power.

Long story short, I'm a complete n00b :sorry:

Welcome!:wave:

There arn't many upgrades available for our little 3.7's. Intake, muffler(cat-back), and a ECU re-program/flash... There used to be a Supercharger kit, but they are long gone.. :( Throttle bodies will only give you marginal results. Intake+Exhaust should bring you close to 235 (from 210 stock. which is the HP of the stock V8, but with less weight! :))
