My new ride!

cheapest is a K&N drop in filter.

Only goes uphill from there . ..

Hay you could also get some under-drive pullys, cold air intake from Ebay from $50-$70. And next time you change your oil use Royal Purple oil and it is proven in the Dyno that when used together with there transmission oil you could get 7-11 HP gains.

those E-bay cheap cold air kits aren't worth any more hp than a drop in.

If you use full synthetic, the costs increase -but you will pick up 2-3 hp and increase the longevity of the drivetrain.

Well man, I got myself a 1995 V6 recently. Had the same question. Thing is, get a K&N filter. And some stainless freeflows. Dual system works good. U can get it cheap, plus u'll feel the diff in power. consumptions better aswell.

what about one of those cheaper speed chips off ebay for around $20-40 that claim to give you extra hp? heard they might be bad for your engine?

they just trick the computer - they can damage your engine.

It's better to reprogram the mapping tables themselves rather than trick them -when you need an adjustment, the computer will be unable to make the adjustment.

the 5-7 hp isn't worth the damage. pick up a K&N filter instead.

I applaude the concise torque tables for the different years, but why does everyone think that the 3.8 V6 just started in 1994???

what about 1983 to 1986???

My "01" Mustang is Running 2 HOT

Hey everyone! I just purchased a 2001 Mustang V6 3.8L used. It seems to be a little sluggish at times. Like on general takeoff. Then getting up to 40 MPH, seems like a struggle. Even shakes a lil bit getting up to 40 MPH...Could that mean a Tune Up is needed? Also, It's throwing off an AWFUL lot of heat. Like I can feel the heat from the engine all in the car. The gauges read at half way between hot and cool but its so hot, that I think its even affecting the radio. Like, The radio is hot to touch and the radio starts sounding like its shorting out, loseing volume and sounding distorted. HELP!!! How do I get my BABY running right?

130-136, more or less, depending on gearing.

Torque Specs

Ford Torque Specs Leave A Lot To Be Desired!! If I Was Putting On Head Gaskets[a Problem For The 3.8's], I Would Get A Stud Kit From Summit And Use The Torque Setting For The Supercharged Model,which I Think Is @ 70 Lbs.. Those Torque To Yeild Bolts Can Only Be Used Once And Do Not Have The Clamping Force Of A Stud!!! Also To Get More Horse Power You Really Have To Change Cams.. Hosepower Is Derived In R.p.m's That Means You Are Going To Have To Get A Computer Progam That Will Get The Job Done, Ignore Low End Reversion And ,change Your Fuel Mixand, Eliminate Any Top End Restriction...you Get What You Pay For.. Or You Could Put A 4.56 Gear And Use All The Pones You Have Now.. Good Luck

A drop in K&N will only give you 1 or 2 HP nothing youd be able to feel...a cold air intake would help a little but if you find the means i suggest putting in the cold air intake and a full exhaust and then you should notice a good diff
