There's a sticky on the subject, and hit the archives.

basically, go for underdriver pulleys, a drop in filter, and 1.8 Roller Rockers, + dual exhaust.

That'll get you started.

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.

It's kind of like asking which computer should I buy, it depends on what you want to do with it. Drag race, road race, custom or? What most interests you, engine, suspension/brakes, transmission/gearing, chassis/body? Where do you want to go and where do you want to start? A good place to begin is by buying every Mustang magazine you can find and reading them cover to cover. This won't help as much with your V6 engine, as articles on V6s are few and far between, but the basics are all the same. You can also try forums like this and v6power.net

yeah, you really need a budget, a goal, and a plan. You can't really put the plan together until you have the 1st two.

your budget can be $25.00 a month, more or less, but you need to know what you're willing to spend.

It's also important to keep in mind how many miles are on the engine/tranny, etc.

How much stereo equipment do you have?

If you're running a couple of subs, you can always overdrive the alternator.

stock, you have 140-145 hp.

Roller Rockers increase the lift on your valves.

I'm running a professional amp with 42% underdrivers, and I have no charging problems at all. THe head unit is 220 wats with 180 watt speakers all around.

In any case, it's easy to overdrive the alternator, and you'll still net a lot more hp than just about any other mod you do for under $200.

UD pulleys for your car are only 69-89 dollars depending on finishing . ..
