3.0 aftermarket?

So lately I've been looking at the 3.0 diesel and one thing I havent been able to find is aftermarket parts for it. I havent even been able to find an airfilter kit for it. So my question is, is there any after market perrformance parts out there for this engine? Or if theres any in the works?

you are right. Parts seem to be limited for now. FYI the air filter is the same for diesel and gas engines, so that wont be a problem. Also, oil filters are available online at a great price.

Since it's a M-Benz engine, wonder if MB parts might be more available?

Don't know if there are any differences between the MB and Jeep engine configurations, but I suspect MB would not run two separate production lines to produce a similar engine.

There are aftermarket parts for the 3.0L. How ever, they are only available in Europe at the moment. Startech offers a tuner that adds more HP and torque. They also have a new exhaust and DPF for the 3.0L as well.

With the exchange rate the way it is now, it would cost you a lot to get these parts from Germany. The good news new, Startech products are Chrysler approved.
