And if you're wanting to get into modding your car, I'd do CAI, exhaust, UD pulleys, and gears first. But in doing gears you'll also need a chip. So...they pretty much get more expensive the more way up.

Just get an e-bay CAI. They're pretty much all the same. Unless you just want to spend more on it...

thx guys I appreciate it. So what do u think personally. The K&N Generation II FIPK, BKK, MAC, or others. Also I've been looking around and I hear that the GT's take off Exhaust with like a H or x pipe is a good upgrade, my brother knows a guy that is going a lot of upgradings on his gt and has the old exhaust laying around but he said it has 6 cats.... thats sounds restrictive as hell and I don't remember seeing 6 cats on take offs on sites. got any clue?

If it's take off's it'll have 4 cats, but you really only need it from the H-pipe back. Cuz the GT h-pipe won't bolt up to yours. I have Mach 1 exhaust and there's several guys on here with GT takeoff exhaust.

Hmmm... the guy said its got 6 cats, I'll see if he can send me a pic. Hes been working on mustangs for like 12 years now so hes knows what hes talking about but ya... 6 cats didn't seem right to me. I dunno I'll just have to see it. oh ya. its a 2004 GT I beleive if that matters. oh and what do u think about the CAI. the K&N, BBK, MAC, or others? I know people said ebay. but are theres any benifits to the others, like on that link you posted didn't say anything about the K&N just said that there was one.

The only thing that will really make a difference on a cold air intake is if it has alot of 90 degree bends or if the inside walls aren't smooth, such as it is with the stock intake. I personally don't have a cold air intake...but that's because I didn't even find out about them till after I had already bought a 50 dollar K&N filter.

Yea stay the hell away from rpmoutlet, they boned me over as well as a couple people from this site. Stick with the site sponsors and you'll be good.

I get my stuff from v6mustangstuff.com, ebaymotors.com, rdmotorsport.com, and mustangtuning.com.

There are others, look around for some good deals and ask here if the site is ok to go with, chances are someone will know.

Hre is some straight up advice. Do not believe advertised hype. Do not waste money on a Throttle Body for your car. Your T/B is more than enough for even a modded engine.

I would also as suggested by a Ebay CAI. The fact is they will do the same job but your wallet will thank you later.

I read on the CAI how to's that Ebay cold CAI's don't have a carb # and I have to pass emissions. This is why I'm looking for a non ebay CAI. otherwise I would have gotten a ebay style CAI already.

well I just realized that that the carb # is only for california. California Air Resources Board (carb) so screw it. I'll buy a ebay CAI. I do still want to see pics of the FIPK 2 though and how much u want for it.

You are talking about GT's having 6 cats. All V6's from 94-04 have 4 cats

Both cats do something

The first converter is a reduction catalyst converter. Platinum and rhodium reduce NO emissions. The NO gas is a byproduct of the combustion reaction that provides the energy for the automobile. The reaction that occurs in this sector of the catalytic converter is as follows:

2NO => N 2 + O 2 or 2NO 2 => N 2 + 2O 2.

The second converter is an Oxidizing catalyst converter. Carbon monoxide is also a byproduct of a combustion reaction and is an unwanted pollutant in the environment. The oxidation catalyst (Dihydrogen Oxide) reduces carbon monoxide into carbon dioxide.

I am going to hunt you down and pickle you in Dihydrogen Oxide!!!! BY GOD


You goof ball

If you read my statement the first part "2NO => N 2 + O 2 or 2NO 2 => N 2 + 2O 2" does not contain Dihydrogen Oxide

But if you read the second half you will see "The second converter is an oxidation catalyst converter. Carbon monoxide is also a byproduct of a combustion reaction and is an unwanted pollutant in the environment. The oxidation catalyst reduces carbon monoxide into carbon dioxide"

The oxidation catalyst is Dihydrogen Oxide NERD BOY!!!!!
