Hey whatsup guys! This site is so badass cause its all about the v6's! Im so pissed at all of the poeple that see my car and are like ehw its a v6. So i need to know what are some really easy mods that I can do fairly cheap to make my 0-60 go down. Right now its at 11, And i have an auto with headers. I just dropped a newer 3.8 in because i blew a wristpin on my other engine. It pisses me off cause my car cant really Burn out. And i loike to get it so its pretty fast. Boost my acel, And be able to burn out like a mother fucker!

well, a shift kit should be your first priority.

what year engine do you have, a 99+? what year is the car?

headers don't really help until you're making at least 275-300rwhp, but since you have them and dual exhaust, you're set. an underdrive pulley (ASP) for your crank and a cold air kit (MAC, DEMOLET) are popular first mods.

I'd say start with a CAI (cheaper/easier)...and for the acceleration, and burnouts, get T-lok and 4.10 gears. If you want to step it up from there you could get a shift kit and a stall converter(don't forget a trans cooler).
And welcome :wave:

Do not try to install gears and a Tlok by yourself unless you are a experienced mechanic. I have been a auto and aircraft mechanic for 18 years of my 43 years and I go to a shop because of the PITA having to do everything on my back.

alright, being that I've got a 95 as well... ill fill you in on what ive done.

First "performance" mod ever that i did was remove my air silencer. This doesnt really do much, but when i did it i was a n00b so obviously it gave me like "10 hp" lol. After that, I got myself some GT takoff dual exhaust. Good mod, gave me a lil extra HP, and sounded a helluvalot better. Exhaust also makes your car loook sexier. After that, I installed the underdrive pulley. I really felt this mod once i hit my powerband. Seemed like it made my car rev quite a bit faster and gave somewhere between 5-7HP. Next I bought my Cold Air Induction. This thing rocked, probably one of my favorite mods because it complimented with my exhaust so well. I loved it, gave my car better pick up and looks nice under the hood. After that I went with gears. I decided to go with 4.10s in my automatic and threw in the traction lok along with it. WHAT A FREAKIN AMAZING MOD. Accelleration is outstanding, burnouts are sweet... and i just love the way it woke my car up. After that mod, i got myself a fordchip. This firmed up my shifts a lot, and removed my governor (youll need that done if you get gears). Now, im waiting for my nitrous kit to come in the mail :)

If you have any questions beyond that... lemme know.

I wish I could do underdrive, but my alt is strained as it is.

it cost me 400 for the installation on gears and tlok. The gear cost 70, and the tlok cost 120. so a grand total of a bit over 600 :| its pricey but worth it. CAI is really easy to do. An underdrive pulley replaces your crank pulley with a smaller one. The point of it is to give less power to things such as your air conditioner and alternator therefore freeing up crank power which adds about 5-8HP. Its pretty easy to install, the hardest part is loosening the bolts on the stock crank pulley. underdrive pulleys for our cars are around 80 bucks.
