Have you thought about a cold air intake?
They give you s little HP and some better fuel economy

The best thing for fuel economy is keeping the foot out of it.also a good tune up goes along way.

Do u think a cool air intake would make up for loss of power?

Buick makes a 3.8 with a turbo. Can I do the same with my mustang without losing much gas mileage?

Not being broke you can't.turbos are pretty efficient,but they require bigger fuel needs.at low rpms it maybe similar,but not at wot.

I need to get my mustang as fuel efficient as possible and maintain the hp. I'm very new to fords. Any advice would be perfect. I have rebuilt chevy 350s and all sorta of chevy trucks.

Like I said the biggest thing is a tune up.fuel filter,air filter,plugs,wires,cap and rotor, etc etc. Also a chip may have fuel economy option but I'm not sure which one.
