Default Am I able to use GT engine parts on my V6?

I am mainly talking about Underdrive pulleys. I dont see a difference between a V6 pulley and V8 pulley. I am just wondering because V8 pulleys are everywhere and it takes a lot of searching to find a set of V6 pulleys. Thats another thing. all V6 pulleys are just a harmonic balancer when V8 pulleys come in a sets of 3 but i dont remember what all 3 are for.

Another thing would be GT superchargers. can one be installed on a V6 with modifications to the pipings?

Basicly if you can make your own Harmonic Balancer Puller or find a cheap one go for it and if you have a sound system you should look past this mod or just get 25%

25% Reduction; ASP UnderDrive Pulley
V6 Mustang Stuff | V6 Mustang Performance Parts and Accessories
(it looks like you can get a ASP Underdrive Pulley 94-98 for $80 assuming you have a 94-98 model)

42% Reduction; MOTOBLUE H.O. UnderDrive Pulley, Water Pump Pulley
Mustang 3.8L V6 Performance Parts FREE SHIPPING!

You can also contact certain websites to see if they can order a part for you such as a 25% Steeda or ASP Underdrive pulley but you are only paying for the name

For a blower you can use a M-112 from the 03-04 Cobra can add 100 RWHP/RWTQ to a 99-04 3.8 Mustang for about $900 at Super Six Motorsports

As for your other questions I hope they get answered as I can't help in that department

I sure wish people would stop quoting that $900 pricetag as what it costs to swap the M112 onto a V6. That is just for the intake. You still need all the gaskets, the blower, and a bunch of other parts. The final cost is still gonna be around $2K or more.

You could try, but be very careful to get the same offset and rib count. Then you'll need to measure for the correct size belt. Power gains would be minimal at best. Maybe 5 more HP to the flywheel and 1-2 at the wheels if you are lucky.
