Mustang 3.8L V6 Performance Parts FREE SHIPPING!

I would skip the bolt ons and go straight for boost. I did the bolt ons for my GT and was never satisfied.

Boost and gears have been the only thing to wake the car up.

i would first ask what your goals are. what is your budget, because if its high, go for boost, and ignore bolt ons, the 94's arent as responsive to bolt on mods as the newer models are.

but if you do want bolt ons, check americanmuscle.com they got tons of parts

I close to doubled the horsepower of my 2000 GT when I supercharged it. I talked to my insurance agent and he talked to the underwriter for State Farm.

They said they don't care if the car is modified as long as it doesn't affect the brakes or other safety systems and that I could get a speeding ticket in a Ford Focus.

Oh, and my insurance rates didn't go up. That was 2+ years ago.

If you want to be faster than even a stock GT then you'll need a turbo or supercharger setup. The 98 and older 3.8L engines are anemic on their best day. You could theoretically do the split port swap and add 50-60HP like the 99+ cars, but if I were you I'd be looking for a good 5.0L doner car and swap that thing to a V8. Anyway you look at it, performance for the older V6 cars is gonna be a big chunk of change.

1988 Mustang LX coupe too much done to list........

Gears and a t-lock would help immensely......
