ok i just came into $3500 cash, and have about another $300, totalling $3800.

what should i spend that money on for the v6? its not enough to supercharge but i could rebuild the suspension, some wheels, and maybe build the internals. or perhaps a 4.2 head swap

any other ideas?

A. do u honestly wanna sink in that much cash in your car?
B. What do you wanna accomplish wit your car?

ask yourself those Qs before you drop that much cash into something. Trust me I dumped well over 8gs into my V6 and guess what I dont have it anymore. All that money I never recovered back. I did recover most but not all.

Just a tid bit cause I was there. But if you want an honest answer do some suspension, bolt ons and get the giggle juice

well this is $3500 after saving another $4500 i recieved at the same time. im making sure to keep other money. but i may just get some nice wheels and small things rather than spend it all. hell i have a hard time spending $100 at once

The heads on a 4.2 are the same, but if you wanna stroke your engine to a 4.2, let me know. I'm try to working a deal to offer them at my website.

well you only have one cam. but if i were you. go for some 3.73s and maybe a used vortech or procharger. or a 4.2 with new cam heads and upper and lower. that would prolly cost you about a grand maybe some more but i think it justang thats getting 285 rwhp and simlar TQ.

personally id say suspension, tlok 373 or an 8.8. wheels, then all your basic bolt ons and maby even p&p. then next time you get cash or (you should still have cash left if you bargain shop) you can lok into heads cam rr ect... but you will pull full potential out of it :good:
any thing you do post pics :p:

sit down and really decide if you want to put money into your car or not (its just like putting money into a 5.0 ... i fyou want to then thats all that matters) if you do then decide what areas you want to go for, speed/looks/handeling/etc

Yes your one of the few smart ones haha

But seriously a V6 aint worth dropping cash on the engine unless you plan on going full out. Personally Id just do some small things for a good pick me up and then focus on the sound and looks.

But you gotta tell us what eggzactly youd like to do cause sh*t I can write you a list for a 11 second V6 right now but its all what you really wanna do. Honestly think cause in all honestly our cars are like honduhs they take to much cash to run fast.

droping bolt ons on a 5.0 aint worth it either, it takes heads/cam/intakes/gears/ etc to make them move its a money game.... its extremly cheap however to find heads/cam/intakes well.... if you dont get the best stuff. if i had 3500 bucks i wouldnt drop it into my car i would save most and maybe do a couple things, its better to have it sitting in the bank while you really consider what you want than to blow it and regret it.

Dude 8gs into my V6 ran low 13s
8gs in my 5.0 psh I barely even 2gs and im beyond faster then my V6

Im not hatin I was there I just dont want others to make that mistake. yeah its a fun hobby but you gotta also be smart cause cash dont grow on trees. Just trying to save my other fellow stangers.

Id drop th ecash on a V6 to look good and have an awesome system. Wish I woulda went that way in full force instead of being fast (nah thats a lie id LOVE the look on th eface of some V8 owners priceless once you tell them its a 6-er)

Personally...I'd put the money in the bank and save it for a little while. Maybe buy wheels or something like that, but don't go blow it all on your car...
