maaayyybe if u were a better driver than him . but with the mods u have it really doesnt help that much. u should look into buying a tuner at least to wake up ur sixxer a bit more.

Nothing wrong with a v6 especially for that price...when I was 18 I picked up a 1999 v6 for a 100$ dollar bill ( no lie) with 105k miles on it, nothing wrong with it..drove it for a HARD 60k miles and eventually sold it..

I have never ran him so it is not my driving but from what I've read the v6 don't have much of a shot but can the tuner really help that much?

it wont help alot but it will wake up ur car especially since u have full exhaust and gears. so u wont be dissapointed with the tuner. and 2 years ago i bought an 01 v6 for 500 bucks with 90k on it. drove it for a year then bought a 02 gt. sadly i sold em both already
but yeah man look into the tuner as ur next mod

Oh yea it was a family friend, who knew I loved mustangs..he called me one day, and said hey I'm putting the mustang up for sale, I want people you to come check it out before I put an ad in the paper, so I RAN straight there, sat down and asked how much he was looking to get, he replies by saying "for you, how does a 100$ dollar bill sound", I literally was put into almost instant shock, pulled out my wallet, handed him a hundred and asked "seriously" he replied by dropping the keys in my hand...one of the happiest days of my life

I'd love to do a v8 swap but I don't have the time or the cash but a tuner sounds nice I've also looked at a m112 upgrade and 4.2 swap I'm going to get a 8.8 rear

I think I'd cry if I had a deal like

There's a DIY vortech centrifugal supercharger for $1500 plus the cost of an intercooler+tune. Here's the link:

No spoiler!! Wish I could take mine off, but in order for me to do it I'd have to have my whole trunk re painted, the paint stuck to the bottom f my spoiler so when I take the spoiler off the paint comes up with it, HATE IT!

DONT DO IT LOL. I test drove a 04 GT and man.... It was fun. Car smokes ya. I got a quick 6 IMO (no idea if yours is as fast, the gears make me think you'd keep up) but that GT would blow my doors off. ITS A TRAP

You'll have to drop a couple grand in the motor I would think to be able to beat him or even keep up
