That 3.6L in cubic inches is... 225! Same as the old Slant Six!

So the Hemi guys aren't the only ones to enjoy a modern retro engine size.

There's a safety factory involved too. From what I understand thats why they retired the 4.0L Inline 6 in the Wrangler in 2006. They had the 4.0L perfected but the engine was too long and would cause an issue in frontal crash.

have any of you either lowered and/or put a different exhaust on your 3.6 SXT?

I want to drop mine about 1.5 - 2 inches and get a little more "burble" out of the exhaust note but don't want loud ricer noise or drone.

Regarding the lowering, there's several ways to go about doing it and it also depends on what you're planning.
Are you wanting race track performance?
Are you just wanting to go for show?
Do you live in pothole prone area and want something that has an adjustable ride height?
Are you on a budget?

combination of appearance and performance. I don't race a lot but I want the car to handle better.

I've noticed that Mopar doesn't offer a front strut tower brace for the V6 cars so I'm also curious about any vendors that do.

In terms of handling, the SST package (r/t suspension, brakes, etc.) makes a big impact on the SXT. Maybe swap in some r/t components is your answer?

Do some shopping around on the suspension, I know alot of fellas like the Eibach Performance and Speedlogix suspensions. Personally, I have the Super Sport Group (SS/T) on my Redline and am very satisfied with the ride height and handling. Granted the Super Sport Group also includes larger brake rotors, dual pistion calipers, beefier sway bars and upgraded steering.

Regarding the brace, I really like the design of the Speedlogix from engineering standpoint because it has several points to spreadout the stress.

I should have noted earlier I have the Super Sport Group on mine. I'll take a look at the brace from Speedlogix.
