Go to an auto parts store and pick up a Haynes or chiltons manual and it'll tell you everything you need to know, it's not "that" difficult to do really

Pretty much aside from reseting the valvetrain, certain procedure to follow to make sure they are set right but again not difficult if you understand the concept

Remove upper and lower intake along with fuel rails and injectors.
Remove radiator, fan and serpentine system.
Might have to remove the front bumper to get to it. The 3.8 is VERY similar to the 5.0 as far as installing a cam goes. Hope this helps

You'll need someone more experienced then I with v6's to answer that question but my initial GUESS would be no unless the O-rings are bad. Don't think with a cam only swap that your injectors

Depends on the cam. Usually the cam manufacture will tell you if you need stronger injectors. I talked about getting higher ratio roller rockers a while ago and this guy argued that a cam is better and that you don't have to remove the radiator to install one and had pictures to prove it. so that will save you time and supplies. How many miles does your stangorang have?

242 SAE rwhp on factory injectors myself lol

Aren't you doing turbo with all this or some form of boost? Depending on that level of boost will tell you how big of injectors..

As for radiator it's pretty simple to remove, (bracket for overflow tank, then remove it, two top support brackets for radiator, undo upper/lower hoses with pliers, pull up to remove radiator and done) worth it to me at least for the extra working room when removing all the acces on the front of the motor.

Also, upgraded valve springs are required with any cam that is even worth the trouble swapping in.. Usually comp 915's will handle whatever you do, also hardened pushrods will most likely be needed

A turbo may be too much. I would rather save it for a v8.
In what respect? You can do a turbo kit for a decent price, look around there is usually a good kit for sale every month or two
