ported heads/intakes with a cam should bump it from 150 to 250~ if done right

just bolt ons wont do much of anything, maybe with EVERY bolt on you will shave off a second from your times and pick up about 25-35hp/tq

How much would that cost me to bring it to 250? minus cost of labor, i can do it myself.

Re: What is the best way to...

parts will probably be around 2500-3000~ but to be sure you need to talk to one of the places that can sell you the items~ not sure who is the best now for the 3.8 let some other 3.8 owners chime i on where to shop.

well there always nitrous oxide, that is a cheep add on ($500-$800). Not to mention a nice kick in the pants for some added power.

Holy!! A second, that would mean most of the v6's should be running mid 12s or low 11s did you mean a tenth?

Anyway best way is: turbo, supercharger, nitrous.

After spending money on just about everything possible I've learned F/I or nitrous is the only way to go with six cylinders.
