I would say like 10 hp TOPS

Not to be a ass, but why list mods that have nothing to do with horsepower gains? =) Those foglights ain't adding horsepower.

You've pretty much got the same mods as me and my car is over a half second faster than it was stock so probably 10-15 hp.

I would estimate that you're near the 260 mark. Them PIAA Platinum Series Fog lights, really help in adding on H.P.

Don't you want to know how much low-end torque you lost as well?

Ummm...lets see. He lost a few down low with the dual exhaust but picked it back up with the CAI and underdrive pulley. So, he probably gained some, not lost.

The February 2004 issue of 5.0 Mustangs had an excellant article on bolt ons for the 99+ V-6. The rear wheel dyno numbers were as follows. Stock 154.3 hp. Cold air 162.6 hp. 70mm throttle body 157.9 ( it lost power). Pulley 168.3. Headers 165.8 ( it lost power over the factory headers). Magnaflow cat back 170.4hp. Go to their web site and order a back issue.

I have tuned a few 99+ V6's and they really do not pick up much mod wise.

Picking up ET is not a very good indication of how much rwhp you have gained. MPH is a better indication. Let's say you ran 90.00, then 92.5 the next time out with identical weather, you would have picked up near 20-25rwhp to do so.

Just for info...my wife's 99 V6 5 speed, K&N & syn oil put down 167/196 STD. Ran 15.3'[email protected] with spare/jack removed. Yet at the track, very few 99+ V6's are running those times modded alot more...just because you put on a part does not mean you make more power. That is sticker mentallity. THEN, let's talk about people that cannot drive...

The new issue of MMFF has a bolt on section, and last year's results from the V6 challenge.

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion.

I just read that article last night. Very interesting. I was supprised the dual exhust y pipe to y pipe didn't really add much.

I also have the K&N and the synthetic oil. The only changes I have done so far and it does feel like the car has a little more giddy up.
