It's my first domestic project and it's a 97 v6 all stock except for y pipe with straight pipe and gt rear end with limited slip looking for quick and not to pricey exterior and power gaining mods help please
#1 Tune up and oil, all fluids, routine maintenance to re-gain old horsepower..
Light weight = fast, so if you can deal with no back seat, a rear seat delete, get rid of spare tire, empty trunk, etc.
Usually people will tell you that you will lose a ton of traction etc, But with your locked rear end and 120 RWHP traction is easy to keep. Ask me how I know, lol
Depending on your money, Get a dual exhaust, CAI, Under drive pulleys, And a tuner and you should see about 20 HP from that depending on the tune and the mileage I would guess.
For every 10% gain in power, It's noticeable driving Horsepower, Keep that in mind.
The 96-98 V6's are rated at 150 Crank horsepower, so to gain enough to really go.. "Hey thats nice.." A tuner is needed, or a port, polish of heads and intake, etc.
Just pick how much you want to spend on it, And get back with us, we will let you know what else to buy. Lol
IM particular about my cars so I keep all fluids changed and all things in check Cai is next on my list and thanks for the advice but is there things I can do exterior wise cheap or free I know some things like shortie ant. And caliper paint but pretty much blind from there thanks...
