Any power mods worth their money?

What sort of numbers are guys with the 3.8 making NA?
I know its not meant to be a race car but my other car puts down a little over 300RWHP and weighs much less than my JKU so I am used to a decent bit of power.

Are there any mods that can add a bit of power aside from FI? I'm not sure how well these motors respond to mods, but the intake and full exhaust in my Mustang added a good bit of power.

RIPP headers are going to be a hearty hit to the bank account, but their numbers are impressive.

Other than that, a tune may be slightly noticeable...but you're a long way off a decent hp/lb ratio.

Power adding mods most worth the money?

I'd say, Magnuson s/c and the an LS V8. Other than that, you'd be better off saving the cash.
