Pulleys, tune, full exhaust, also look into the Windstar intake!.. Keep in mind that the older V6s are not known for big power!.. So the real question is, what is your budget and what are your plans for the car?...

Split port swap? Turbo? I don't think windstar swap is possible on 94-98 v6.... I could be wrong...

You can do the windstar if it has the split port lower intake

Idk bout turbo, ive always been a supercharger fan. Plus i might not get to do the enging this winter, i might have to do the tranny cuz wen i hit bumps itll throw it out of gear and start grinding, but it only happens occasionally

CAI and dual exhausts doesn't really add significant HP increase... But it'd be nice to have them anyway. I suggest getting t-lok and gears... Or maybe an 8.8 swap. Then get a tuner...

If its an auto then I would do the tuner first!.. But definitely get that tranny fixed before any mods!..

Coyote 5.0! Lol yeah fix that trans then a tuner! That way you can get all the power outta your upgrades as you do them. Plus from what everyone on here says tuners does wonders for autos.

It's called Jmod stand for jerry mod he was one of the people that made the transmission and worked at Ford. So he knows his stuff but if u look it up It's drilling whole in your value body. By drilling the holes your car will shift faster and firmer. I did my own Jmod and wasn't too bad but I enjoyed what I learned

I talked to him through email a little while back. He said that he is discontinuing the whole kit, however he will continue to sell the individual parts for a while. He also said that if you email him he will try to help you piece together a kit
