    Hi All, I have a 1968 Mustang Convertible, 6 cylinder 200ci with automatic transmission. I did the 5 lug conversion with front disc brakes and the rear-end is from a 1967 mustang with 9" drum brakes. When I drive the car it's sluggish and the gas mileage is bad, maybe 10mpg. When I hit on...

    Hi guys, I am nearing completion of my 1965 Mustang Inline 6 200 coupe resto-mod and it does not have an exhaust system. There is no exhaust manifold or headers on the car now, and my question is which should I put on? Headers or a manifold? Car will be my daily driver so I'm much more...

    I bought this car about a year ago. It ran "ok" but had some lagging during acceleration. The carb looked pretty well worn so i sent it out to be rebuilt. Before removing the carb the car would start and run smooth, just not accelerate as good as it should. Got the carb back and now the car...

    I recently prchased a nice 1996 mustang. Howver, it is the V6 model. I was curious if there were any significant power upgrades tht can be done. Hoping to avoid an engine swap to a V8 if at all possible. Thank you.

    Having a hard time finding answers to this online.. This carburetor was in my 1965 6 cylinder mustang coupe project car when I bought it. Anyone know what it is? And should I replace / rebuild / leave it?

    I'm just getting started in my rehab project on my 1965 coupe and need some direction. My 6 cylinder engine is in pretty good shape, but I've got some grinding noise in the 3 speed transmission. I've got it pulled off successfully, but wanted to find out what my best option might be. Should I...

    I'm a long time Mustang enthusiast and I've started a new project car. As a little history, my dad bought a 1966 coupe for he and I to work on when I was 14 or so. We restored it together and it was ready to go when I turned 16. Dad had to get rid of it while I was away at college and I've...

    Hi All, This is my first post so I may be asking a question that has been answered before. I am in the process of restoring my 1966 convertible and would like to know the proper placement of the decals for a 6 cylinder 200 cu. in. engine compartment. Thanks.:)

    Hey guys, There's not really much out there on a good short throw shifter for the 05-10 V6. Is this something that you guys would be interested in seeing? Let us know! Shane

    Hello fellow mustang owners, I'm looking for some help on purchasing/installing a triple gauge dash pod. Of course quality and a decent price is what I look for first. If anyone has any better suggestions I'm more than open to hear them. For now, I'm currently looking on americanmuscle at this...

    What would be the best possible, its got 87k original miles and I'm looking for something to improve performance. Would Royal Purple 5w-30 High Performance work or be bad to use?

    If I have a normal v6 2002 Mustang (3.8L) and I want to put on true dual exhaust on. I'm wanting to put on Borla stinger duals but they are made for 2002 v6 gt (4.0L) mustangs would they still work or sound the same or close? If not could you tell me everything I need to replace to get a sound...

    I am looking to buy a 99-04 Mustang GT, but I am a little short on cash. I have an exhaust system picked out if I get the GT. I was just wondering if there's a way to put a GT exhaust system on a V6 (if I decide to buy a V6). Here's the exhaust system I want. Borla Stinger S-Type Catback (99-04...

    I have a 2006 v6 mustang manual transmission. at first i thought that the sound at start up was the fan belt slipping but its not. a few internet searches pointed at the throw out bearing, but i want to make sure before i spend the money and go too crazy. the clutch is also slipping and this is...

    I was wondering what is a good/safe and/or maximum freeway speed for an inline 6 cylinder, 200ci, automatic with a c4 transmission. Also, what happens if you go too fast for too long? Thanks.

    I'm putting on a new carb and exhaust manifold - both brand new. Apparently they do not sell heat risers at any of the Mustang places like NPD. Does anyone have one or know where to get one? Thanks!

    Today while i was at the junk yard i made a discovery that confused me. i had found a V6 engine in a fox body mustang. I had also found an inline 6. The fox bodies were in the 79' to 86'. the exact year i couldn't tell you. I have a 1987 convertible with an inline 4 cylinder engine. I have been...
