    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 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 know, but I'm not sure what Matt has. That is why I quoted his post.

    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.
