V6 street/strip build

okay i have a 04 3.9 v6
i was thinking about building it up good so i have more horsepower than a gt but dont have to pay the gas, insurance of a gt.
mods right now-
lots of exterior mods
true duel no mid FM40s
CAI

keep in mind this might take a few years and i wanted to know some additions to what i was thinking of.

1. start out by going with a TMA street turbo (low boost for now)

2. bigger injectors

3. super six motorsports power pak stage 2 (includes cam, ported heads, ported intakes, valves)

4. bigger fuel pump

by doing this i will be looking at around 410hp at 10 psi with 91 octane for around 6,500
what other parts i can get or need or is there a cheeper way to get my intakes, heads ported?

if andy will still be making turbo kits at the time you can afford it go for it, he makes very nice setup's

someone else who does basically all that you're wanting to do is ESG-642T
Home - ESG Performance
good prices and great products, getting my new cam from him soon
tell'em david sent ya

as for injectors you'll need at least 39/42 for that boost level but you can go higher if you want to be safe but not really needed

you can get away with a single SVT focus fuel pump for that power level and if needed a BAP (boost a pump) to up the power if it happens to fall short on fuel demand


BV heads, P&P lower, windstar upper, comp 218/226, 4.2 bottom end, 3k stall, flow 40's, O/R x-pipe, Pacesetter lt's, Xcal2, 65mm tb, CAI, 8.8 w/ 3.73's, MM LCA's
coming soon: blower cam and intercooled M112
dealer for Ortiz Performance; tunes, cams, etc. PM me!

finding used cobra injectors is usually the route people go, try corral.net and ebay, the most common places

OK, lemme get this straight. You don't want to spend more for the gas and the insurance that a V8 would be, but you are willing to invest $6k+ in your V6 (which is roughly what it is worth if it is in nice shape)? That makes no sense at all.

If you have the $$ to blow that you won't ever get back, and want to do it just to prove it, now that's a good reason. IF I had $4k to blow, I might even put a procharger on mine, as I love the Procharger that is on my 2010.

But to save $$ on gas and insurance if you had a V8, no, that's not a reason to do it.

These V6s generally see poor mileage ... If you have a well maintained and tuned up (by that I mean fluids, fitlers, etc) and a 5speed. You can see decent mileage. But in most cases they are poor on mpg.

My N/A build on an auto see 15-16c 18-20hw
Under 25yo Male insurance is stupid high even for a V6 car.

Its just life.

IF those are you only two reasons to want to keep the V6 and mod it. Your better off swallowing that down and buying a V8 car.

lololololololololololol

I love these threads....

"Oh hey guys I'm broke, but 3 years from now I plan on having thousands and thousands of dollars burning a hole in my pocket. So I'm gonna make this thread now 3 years early...."

More like $12k for your plans

You left out dyno tuning, chip, forged bottom end, 8.8 rear, gears, upgraded trans/clutch, tires, installation

Have fun with that while I'm smoking ya in GT's that I bought already fully built for <$10k

i've made a decision to just go with the tma and maybe polish the intakes no big things that are super expensive the guy from tma said it wouldnt be that hard for me to run 350hp at 10psi on a stock engine, thats good for me. all i really wanna do is smoke my friends
yea i am 16 and a guy so insurance isnt too cheap. on a gt it would be around $300 for me and thats about how much i make in a week lol

This guy won't understand, he bought his car built.... not built it.... so don't worry about him.
