Re: Increasing hp
Split port swap...
Brings you up to 99-04 3.8/3.9 v6 specs. Take it a step further and throw the Windstar intake on to gain another 8-12 hp. That'll put you close to 200-210hp at the crank.
A handful of bolt ons and a good tune will probably gain another 10-20hp based on the octane and aggressiveness of the tune. You'd be close to 220hp at the crank, which would be ~180hp to the wheels based on a 20% parasitic loss (auto).
Or you could pick up a used 99-04 v6 engine and drop it in...
Those are probably the 2 quickest ways to make the most power for ~$1000.
