these guys have built the various ford V6 engines and can help you make a lot of power from your V6. a supercharger is the quickest way to make power, and usually the easiest. after that you want to run a stiffer rear gear such as a 4.11 or so. there are also suspension and chassis upgrades that will also help. $9000 is a pretty good budget depending on how much work you can do yourself.
