170 miles filled it back up with 6.8 gallons = 25 mpg

Is this the one you have? I love mine, pair it with CAI and it whistles loud like a supercharger @ 1st & 2nd gear.. Ricers slowing down when they hear it. LOL.. But i sold mine a week ago for 50$. What kind of CAI do you have if u have 1 check the space of your cai and the wall. Mines BBK and it doesn't give enough clearance between the wall and the tube. Check if it hits the wall coz that will give you vibration.

They really are, I hit about 3k and it really picks up, and goes, but slow as **** till that. I lost even more when I put on my duals, but maybe a coil, wires, and sparks will help a little, and a k&n intake spacer and tune. Would like to do a 7.5 auburn rear end with 4.10s and under drive pulley and maybe a aluminum drive shaft. Maybe cam it also. Not so sure at this point, I'll decide web I have the money and I'm split between a fox and those options.

In my gt it has a great throttle but if you have some gears, cai, TB and a tune I would believe that you should have a good throttle response! Make sure your sparkplugs are clean and that your wires are good to!

Agree and disagree because every tiny bit counts on a v6

Porting both will add about 20 HP at most. Adding a Windstar will add from 10-20 hp and less weight on the motor. So figure which one is more worth it plus Windstar intake is cheaper then a port job

Well if you want true power swap over 4.2 engine upper and lower port and polish. Custom cam then we can talk about it being worth it. If you do the port job the cam is stock which will not allow the car to use the more amount of air coming in plus you also need a tune. Costing about 60-200 each tune. So 350 plus 200 is 550 for same power or less then a Windstar. You can still get a Windstar the kits just made the install easier and fit under stock hood. But if you are willing to be cheap a set up can cost about a 100 dollars

Nice, I would love a turbo, but I can't get over the fact that I could do a full build 351 with a huge roots style blower, but then I could also do some compound boost if I wanted too.

Well I found some stuff but like everything I learned not every car is the same. Plus drivers make a big difference. So 12 seconds for them but for me I might be 13

True but it takes practice maybe one night don't launch hard at all just launch off idle then the next at 2k the next at 2.5k so on. Get that reaction time down and the 60ft.
I heard you can get good reaction times if you go with the second to last light flicks but I'm not 100% on that
