there is plenty if you look and willing to mod and spend $$. after all I built a 4.0 back in 2012 still running hard AF with billet rods, forged pistons, gapless rings, ARP studs. stage 2 cams, a Ken Bell 2.6l super charger, walbro 255 fuel pump, 1000cc injectors, uprev tune and 475hp from the 4.0 @12psi. As already stated theres a lot that works from the 3.5

Not looking to get radical with engine mods at all really. Just air intake, exhaust system, and intake manifold spacer, and a good local company to fine tune the electronics as I make changes.

If I can, I'd like to start with the tuning on the stock system as a benchmark, then re-visit the tune shop as things are added, to see just how much change we get out of each upgrade.

In order, I would go:

  1. Benchmark tune
  2. Exhaust
  3. Tune
  4. Intake
  5. Tune
  6. Manifold spacer
  7. Tune

I work in West Chicago, I'm going to look for a performance shop nearby there and talk to them about my ideas.

Yeah, looking at the stock exhaust plumbing, that Y-pipe collector design looks like a real restrictive choke point.
Very ugly.

Up-Rev seems the be the tuning of choice of the frontier.

This thread has some info on engine performance https://www.thenewx.org/forum/11-pow...-upgrades.html
Ah - "Stage 1" would be my goal, at least for now. It's a daily driver (100 mile a day commute) that will see some moderate off-road weekend-warrior fun, and an occasional cross-country road trip.

Uprev dyno tune is the best bang for the buck IMO. That paired with a decent intake, IMS, and exhaust set-up should take about a second off your 1/4 mile time.

Cat back Exhaust is easy, banks, magnaflow, flow master etc take your pick. Xtm make a Manifold spacer. Lots of air intakes are available but Im pretty sure the 5.7 v8 Titan uses the same air intake as the frontier so a better flowing filter for the stock housing might be money better spent.

You might want to look at headers to if your going to custom tune it.

The intake by itself might not be worth it, but paired with exhaust modifications and a tune it will free up much more hp. If you want to go with the best bang for the buck, then a drop in filter, IMS, dual in/single out muffler with a decent tune will work. If you're wanting to get more involved than that, such as headers and B pipes, then I would say an aftermarket intake would compliment that nicely.

I'm not looking to go crazy nuts, just optimize what we have without spending a shitload of $$ Getting the good air in, the bad air out, and tweaking the way it all burns...

Probably because it's a N/A V6, good luck getting noticeable gains without forced induction.
