look at the cooling fan behind the radiator. does it have a belt running to it that connects to the other items on the motor or is it electric and have wires running to a motor if you have a manual clutch on the fan run by the motor then switching to an electric fan setup will free up some hp and give you better economy. it doesnt add hp....but you will feel more. less work for the motor = increased economy. -- ------------------------------------------ laszlo almasi ----cool toys formerly carolina watercraft works ----mack daddy trailers ----ice angels if i knew the answer id tell u. the transmission has nothing to do with the fan. -- ------------------------------------------ laszlo almasi ----cool toys formerly carolina watercraft works ----mack daddy trailers ----ice angels its an automatic transmission. does that have a manual clutch fan or electric -- ------------------------------------------ laszlo almasi ----cool toys formerly carolina watercraft works ----mack daddy trailers ----ice angels im looking for a few upgrades for my 04 dakota 3.7 liter v6 magnum engine. im looking for a cold air intake and anything to help boost my gas mileage. i know that im probably not going to get much but anything has got to help. any suggestions thanks glytter77 04 dakota v6 01 mustang gt convertible 01 firebird formula 71 firebird .

i have a camper shell on it due to me hauling stuff in it for work. the tires are the same as the stock tires. when i got new ones i didnt change the size any. glytter77 wrote im looking for a few upgrades for my 04 dakota 3.7 liter v6 magnum engine. im looking for a cold air intake and anything to help boost my gas mileage. i know that im probably not going to get much but anything has got to help. any suggestions thanks glytter77 04 dakota v6 01 mustang gt convertible 01 firebird formula 71 firebird -- first make sure the engine is in good tune - plugs wires cap rotor coil. nothing fancy there just good quality stock replacement parts. i generally use bosch and autolite. remove the throttle body and give it a good cleaning. a capaciter ignition like msd crane mallory etc might gain you 1-2mpg but dont count on it. keep the tailgate up and use a flat bed cover of some kind. caps tend to decrease mileage. what tires do you have oversized and off road tires can really suck fuel. get rid of as much extra weight as you can. -------- .bob 2006 fxdi hot rod 2008 mustang coupe - 32mpg 2001 dodge dakota qc 5.9/4x4/3.92 1965 ffr cobra - 427w efi damn fast. .
