You can also let your muffler rust out. My wife knows when I've pulled into the neighborhood.....
Ordered my stage 2 today. On average I currently get between 18.5 and 19.5 MPG and I have upgraded to the larger throttle body and CAI. I will let you guys know if I notice anything amazing on my end.
I hope to upgrade to the larger TB soon - did you notice much of a difference?
Not a huge amount of power but it sounds better with the CAI and a slight increase in MPG. Hoping the Chip helps a little with the power
So my update:
Around the city the nitro had more power in it and is fun to drive.
I have seen 1-2 mpg increase in my average in one day
In the freeway I can't notice much more power, but I can highly recommend picking this up.
Skip stage one and go straight to the level 2.
What throttle body upgrade did you do?
There is a thread here on the site about it. I believe it is a throttle body from the 4.7 Durango or Jeeps
So i can search for a 4.7l TB?
Mine was a 2007 Dodge Dakota 4.7
Not to hard to get it in. I cut the alignment pins on the intake
What engine do you have? This will not work on the 4.0 or the 2.8CRD.
The thread XxLoaded 04xX linked above has a list of which one should work with the 3.7.
I have the 3.7
I know, but I'm not sure what Matt has. That is why I quoted his post.
That's my bad, got caught up in the replies
No worries. Figured as much.
Mat has the 3.7l
Yea i have the 3.7l.
So if i can find an 07 dakota 4.7l itll work with some minor cutting?
Am i understanding that correctly?
I know the 08 Dodge Durango 4.7L throttle body will work for sure. If you look at my thread about it, you can see how I modified the TB to fit the Nitro intake. I did not want to cut the pins on the stock intake.
In that thread is also a list of ones that will work.
Above, XxLoaded 04xX said he used a 2007 Dodge Dakota 4.7 TB and it worked.
Some of the C.J.D. 2007 4.7 TB use a different setup. So I went with an 08 just to be sure it would work.
One more thing to add. If you modify the TB, make sure you don't damage the area closest to the TB opening. It has to make a tight seal on the intake "O" gasket.
