Something big is coming that I'll share with the group when complete. It will apply to the NA 3.5 as well as the 3.7. Should be able to post results in a few weeks.

Will be a fairly easy bolt on and will reveal it all after I have completed the addition and done the testing.

It will include before and after results.

Let me know. I would love to buy it. Does it interfere with a cold air intake or custom tune on the 3.5 NA?

Nope.

May want to get the tune tweaked for it down the road.

I'll guess bigger throttle body from a different model

They are physical bolt on parts.

All will be revealed when completed along with step by step install instructions as well as results from testing.

Seems odd to post about something “big” upcoming, but not wiling to give any details. Why not just wait until it’s actually proven, and you’re willing to share the information? I’m assuming gains will be very modest if it doesn’t require a tune.

I’d guess low PSI blower but even that would be fairly silly without a tune.

It's something that has already been proven on another platform. I'm working with the vendor to bring it to us.

Tagged for more info. I think I've maxed out the tuning aspect of my N/A 3.5 Explorer. Not much more to do.

I hope it is not exhaust, headers, cold air intake, or throttle body since we're not exactly flowing a lot of air mass (about 28-29 lb/min) , and it is easy to use MBT spark so that's pretty much maxed out.

Some teaser pics of what's in process that should clue most in on what it is.
