First of all welcome, might start with a tune up from American muscle(plugs, wires, coil), intake, exhaust, gears, & or a tuner

Thank you for you response, I currently have it in the shop getting new plugs and wires, fuel injection flush,and a/c recharge. It has 136k on the dash but I have always wanted one and finally got one super excited

Very nice, do you have any pics? Most common first upgrades are between a tune, intake, & exhaust.

welcome to the site! sweet sixxer. my first mustang was a sixxer similar to yours. i still have it today nexted to my gt alot of v6 guys work on the looks more than performance for v6's. nice new tint, mach grille, lowering springs, new widers wheels and tires, etc.. a nice exhaust and tune should give you that extra little kick ur looking for though. look around on mustang part sites like americanmuscle.com , latemodelrestoration.com, cjponyparts.com, etc.
if u got any questions ask away buddy!
