Wrong section, look for pre-2005 v6 since you've got a 3.8 (: BUT not sure if you want performance, or appearance mods or both so i'll just list some of both. Not too sure if you're asking for ideas, or looking for help with a mod you've purchased but here we go.

Most v6's on this site go with exhaust Cold air intake, coil packs, plugs and wires, gears, and a tuner. I've got everything on that list but the exhaust and tuner. You can also buy long tube headers i believe, not 100% on that though.

Appearance wise you can look into Tint, Chin spoiler, different body kits, tinted lights, sequential tail light kits, lowering springs, new wheels and stripe options.

Hope this helps a little bit, happy modding (:

From experience I wouldn't spin a whole lot on performance on a v6 it's hard to make them pick up a lot of power I had a v6 and put money into performance and it didn't help much really was a waste of money so I stopped and put money into making it look better

I second this. I put my money into the ignition to get it running a bit better, not really looking for a whole lot of performance. It'll take quite a bit of cash to get a v6 mustang to be fast.

All depends on money! If I had a ton of money I would do a saleen body kit I really like the cobra R hoods and love cobra rims black or chrome depending on what you like more I think black would look really good cause of your black top.
I say body kit/rims/hood that's all I would do to it.
