Exclamation 1998 Mustang V6 question.....HELP

OK i just bought a 98 v6, there is no grille in the car, and it seems every mustang i see from that same year, or similiar body style, there doesnt appear to be a grille. the pony is missing on the car too, just the back piece of the pony remains. its where the pony mounts to i guess...isnt the grille supposed to protect under the hood?... any help on where i can get a cheap pony, and if needed a grille for the car would be great... i've googled the grille, and all that comes up is the billet grille, and i dont really like the way that looks. also any suggestions on mods would also be great.... i want to put a Cold Air Intake on the car ASAP, want to know which is best... i looked on K & N and OEM but there are none that are available for my car ..... any and all help will be appreciated.

No you dont need a grill, and also just look around for the pony you might be able to find it cheap on ebay. as for CAI the Ebay ones work just as good as the name brand ones and cost a lot less. i have the exact same year as you except here soon ill be swaping on the split port setup all p&p with a cam. get yourself a nice true dual setup for exhaust as well and some UDP, also i recommend getting the SCT Xcal 2 from www.vmptuning.com

there is not a grille for your car... they dont come with one... they just have the pony...but remember that if you find one...then you have to get special screw driver to put the new one on... but thats not really that hard to find... most shops will do it for free...
