power mods for 96 mustang....

Hey. I got a 96 stang and all i have done is 3 inch flowmasters and BBK cai. What mods could I get for not alot of money that will get me some noticeable power gains??? What about custom h-pipe, jet chip, or under drive pulley?

Re: power mods for 96 mustang....

If you want the most power you can feel for your money, I'd say get gears and a t-lok (locks the rear end so you don't just spin the right tire). These will make a big difference in the way your car drives.

Also, the whole 3 inch flowmaster thing isn't really the best way to get power from a V6.

Re: power mods for 96 mustang....

I don't know why you are so set on a "jet chip" but if you are just dying to get a chip or tune I'd recommend getting a dyno tune from a reputable tuner. There really isn't a point in doing any of this because of the costs unless you have more done to your engine to warrant the costs.

A h pipe isn't gonna give you any real noticable power in a V6.

And underdrive pulleys will net you like 5-8 horsepower. If you want to spend the money they are proven to have gains.

Re: power mods for 96 mustang....

Buying an off the shelf chip is worthless and potentially dangerous. Buy a REAL chip from a REAL dyno tunner and and if possible have the car tunned to ensure you get a good chip or computer reflash (with a hand held tunner)

Basially ANY bolt on you can stick on your car is going to net you no more than 10hp/tq and chances are more than not your looking at 5hp/5tq (exhaust,cai,etc) so basically dont expect much from bolt ons.

The BEST bang for the buck is rear end gears/tlok unit (4.10s) and a tune to calibrate the speedo (or a speedcal unit to fix it)
