    Hello Everyone! I am currently driving a stock 2002 V6 Mustang and would like to turbo the car just for the sake of getting some more power out of the car.

    Hey everyone, I am looking at possibly purchasing at 2004 Ford Mustang Mach 1 for around $14-15k. If I end up purchasing the car I was thinking about potentially putting a supercharger on it. The car would be used mainly as a daily driver. I was curious to hear what superchargers people would...

    I've found a couple Boss 302s close enough to me that are going for MSRP, and that's an attractive price for this car, to me. I was recently dead set on getting an 2011 Infiniti M37x because I had figured I wasn't going to be able to get a Boss for anywhere near MSRP with ridiculous dealer...

    Ok, so I recently replaced most of the gaskets on my 65 V8 after finding a blown head gasket. While the top end was apart for the first time in what i would assume to be years, i took the opportunity to give everything a good cleaning. Considering the rest of the car is falling apart thanks to...

    I have a 2011 V6 3.31 gears, already added Magnaflow cat-back exhaust and Modular Mustang Racing cold-air intake. Any suggestions for additional mods to increase the mpg of this daily driver? Already hauls and have to hang-on tight even though I have never hit the floor with the pedal. I want to...

Have been waiting about 5 years to do this, since I first rented a Cologne-V6 convertible in southern California. VERY EXCITED . . . But...
