Question Why doesnt it say V6 3.9?

I have an 04 V6 3.9 but it only says 2.3-3.8?

Also, what are the differences between the 3.8 and the 3.9 V6? Most people dont believe me or probanlt just think that Im a girl and I dont know what Im talking about but hopefully people on here know there really is a 3.9... I'm guessing its only referring to size rather than performance?

First off welçome afm

Secondly awesome to see a girl my age knowing about muscle car and not just loving dudes who drives em lol

To answer your question the 3.9 is an actualy engine size. i believe it is the later model in 2004? Not sure of the exact year but the 3.9 is an actual engine and no bs.

The difference is inside the engine block. It has a slightly different crank shaft so the stroke is a tad longer. Not enough to make a difference in power. Everything else on the engine is the same as the 3.8L.

Haha okay, Im thinking about putting a loud mouth on it, will it be louder than the v6 3.8 with a loud mouth? Also what gas does everyone use? I put 89 and 93 in my baby and she takes off best on 93 Premium is that what is meant to be put in the v6 3.9 and either way why would I feel the difference? 87 felt too shaky and it seemed like I was moving slower.. maybe thats self fulfilling prophecy though??

Welcome to AFM from the Chicago south land. I think it's cool as hell that a woman knows a lil about cars I run 87 in my 4.0 and think it runs good . when I had my '06 (my username) ran 87 in her too and had a Bamma tune I need to get a tune for my 09 (ONX)

If youre going to do mods go the full mile on exhuast setup not just mufflers. Also it depends on what your car is tune for. My saleen wont take anything other than premium. Itstoo spoiled. On the other hand my roush will take anything I put in it.

It's probably your imagination on the 93 vs 89 thing. On the exhaust, I always say if you're going to do the exhaust, do it right the first time. After a while, I bet you'll get bored of just the one muffler and want duals.
