Yes, they did make a stage one and two V6. It was suspension and body kit respectively. Maybe a cold air kit, but nothing noteworthy for performance. IMO the coolest V6 New edges were the Pythons.

Well the suspension between a stock V6 and GT was the same. But on the Stage two package from Roush they would upgrade it the same regardless if it was a V6 or GT.

Roush does three Stages. Stage one is a body kit and rims, and really that's about it. Available om both the V6 amd GT.

Stage two is suspension, and body kit, and rims. Again available on both V6 and GT.

There is a Stage three, which was a body kit with rims, suspension, and a supercharger with the supporting mods. Only for the GT.

Its also noteworthy the bodykit included side mounted exhaust pipes.

Its the same thing. Like an oem replacement. If you want an upgrade, look at aftermarket companies like Maximum Motor sports, Steeda, Kenny Brown, etc...etc...

This is so weird. Saw that rear bumper, and knew it was mine. Seems as though it was a dealer add on. Had side pipes i think, too. But the company who makes the kit is Razzi.

But back to the topic, a stage 1 Roush is pretty much suspension work. Stage to i believe is Suspension+a few bolt ons, And stage 3 is boosted+Suspension. Pretty cool cars.

Stage one is just appearence. No bolt ons with a stage two. Just appearance and suspension. Only performance parts are on the stage 3

Now they also made a 440a and a few other lesser known varients......

And Steeda did suspension on thier own versions as well.

Saleen did too IIRC, and even made a super rare Saleen Terminator.

Yeah they were a dealer option. Like I said, I always thought they were pretty slick looking.

Oh also, it was a dealer in my State of Florida that exclusively did it for a number of years. Brandon Ford to be exact, which is right near me
