hey im just wondering what i should do to my 1999 v6?
i would like to add some horsepower and just wondering what the bang for my buck would be?
i already have CAI which will be installed soon, any other ideas?
i do not know too much about this sort of thing, it is my first car and i would like to have some fun with it.
any advice for me?
Go with a tuner, gears and t-lock and underdrive pullies, tuner will be able to modify your timing, fuel, and if you have an auto firm the shifts up a little bit, gears will help you get into your rpm range quicker I have and auto with a 4.10 gear and love it still get 27MPG on the highway doing about 70, and the underdrive pullies will reduce the load off of the pullies by replacing the 7 in crank pullie with a 5 in one. with those mods you will have some fun with.
Start with the basics as said previously...
Lower gears for acceleration
Suspension - rear swaybar, poly bushings, shocks/struts, coils
Engine mods from SSM
This is my order of upgrades. Standard? updgrade shifter. Some people have problems with the 2-3 shift with the factory shifter.
go to your local muffler shop and get them to make an h-pipe and put on GT take off catbacks and any mufflers, magnaflow or flows are popular but no pipping bigger than 2.5 because you will lose back pressure. my setup cost around $500 for everything
get a tuner, sct makes good ones
get t-lok (traction lock) it makes you spin both tires when burning out not just the right one:bigthumbsup then get gears, 3.73 or 4.10 both will work aslong as they are for a v6 or a 7.5" rear end or option two is to get a gt's rear end (8.8) that already comes with t-lok and just add gears, you can get one off the internet or at a local junkyard for a few hundred bucks
once you get there you will prolly have read enough on this site to know what you really want out of you car and if your going FI or not. good luck modding your stang if you have any questons just ask and someone will always help you
