    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Here's the thing, for a carbureted engine that may work, but for a fuel injected engine which weighs the intake charge (downstream of the throttle body) and meters out the correct amount of fuel for the air entering the intake plenum (regardless of density altitude or throttle setting), the only...
  2. I want to add aftermarket heated seats

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    LOL! :D
  3. I want to add aftermarket heated seats

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Seriously? How does wind chill impact what a person feels inside of a vehicle? Answer: It doesn't. Please point me to your science.
  4. I want to add aftermarket heated seats

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    What does windchill have to do with anything? Answer: Nothing. I've driven two of our Gen3 vans as well as our Gen4 van in temperatures down in the -20°F range and never had any issue with keeping the inside of the van nice and toasty (without heat-seaters, which I hate). I'm thinking you...
  5. Oy-vey, broken leg, again!

    The Fireplace
    I have run that distance slowly, but not anywhere near as fast as I had hoped. My slow(er) than expected recovery is due to a stupid travel schedule; my job had me start travelling in April, and based upon the trips scheduled over the next three weeks, I'll hit "Medallion" status on two...
  6. 2008 Town and Country 3.8 poor mpg

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    Almost immediately.
  7. 2008 Town and Country 3.8 poor mpg

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    I agree, at 65 mph, all of our vans have been easily capable of hitting into the 25-28 mpg range.

    3.8L V6 Tech Talk
    Yup, well aware of how much torque the 3.8 has, but if you pair the 3.8 with a 3.3 transmission, lighting up the front tires is a very easy thing to do; just that much more leverage on the rubber.

    I'm curious why you'll be using the taller geared 3.8 transmission when the 3.3 transmission will give you so much more low end pull?
  10. Life expectancy of factory brake pads?

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    I'm sorry, I think you're going to need to back that up with some data and proof. I've lived in the salt/rust belt for over sixty years, I've driven cars made all over the world using rotors and pads similarly sourced, and yet, never once have I had a pad "bind and fail prematurely". My wife...
  11. 2001+ 3.8L in 1994 van

    3.8L V6 Tech Talk
    Bingo, this will be your best option; a 1998-2000 3.8 hooked to a 3.3 transmission will give you the best bang for the buck of any of your options.

    Hmmm, my 3.8 liter 1998 DGC Sport looks to have had pretty flat pistons.
  13. Life expectancy of factory brake pads?

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    Then there is a former neighbor of mine who lives in the Bronx, his 2017 van needed brakes after 23,000 miles.

    I'm like 99.99% certain all Gen4 vans with either the 3.3 or 3.8 liter V6 engine had a plastic intake.
  15. 1994 Horsepower increase

    2nd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1991-1995
    Good call, I completely forgot about the 2.7 Stratus being offered with a 5-Speed; what was it on the market for, like three weeks before they cancelled the three pedal option? :p
  16. 1994 Horsepower increase

    2nd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1991-1995
    I don't think Chrysler ever produced a transverse 4-Speed manual transmission, and if they did, it would have been for the very early K-Cars and completely incapable of dealing with the torque of a V6. The 5-Speed manuals which came with the Daytonas, LeBarons, and Turbo Minivans (along with...

    Better flow means exactly nothing on a modern fuel injected engine. Why? Because the weight of the intake charge is measured inside the intake plenum and then the correct amount of fuel is metered out for that air. Add more air, either because you drop in altitude, the air is colder, you've...

    It seems quite clear you have a mind with virtually zero scientific training; it is only folks in this category who could even remotely dismiss the huge body of evidence which you so easily dismiss. If you wish to remain ignorant of the physics of how engines operate, that is your prerogative...

    You can argue that case all day, and any competent engineer will laugh in your face. Believe what you wish, but your CAI mod (which replaced the CAI which came from the factory) didn't do diddly to improve fuel economy.

    Ummn, sorry, but never happened. Clearly you don't know much about modern fuel injected engines.
