Re: Hello Mustang World

welcome! You will find many V6 owners on the boards, I myself have owned two 3.8L in the past and modded both. A nice set of gears will help out your car a good bit (with tlok of course) might be something to consider down the road.

Got some pics?

Re: Hello Mustang World

they are known to have issues due to the AC condensation dripping down on them, usually its just the passenger side if I remember right that has issues. Just get it welded back up or yank one from a junk yard to replace it with.

Re: Hello Mustang World

I had an 01 v6 and I did:

cold air intake
under drive pulleys
dual exhaust
rear end gears with a tlok (positive traction unit)
a tune (if auto it really helps here)

thats some basic stuff that can help

Re: Hello Mustang World

welcome

Yah Spec pretty much listed the basic "bolt ons" for the 3.8...you could look into a Windstar intake if you want to change intakes. VAP auto sells the kits and supporting items. If you can find an intake out of a junkyard windstar that would work too.
