alright, i have an '01 v6 auto (sob sob), i already have a dual exhaust H pipe (catted) w/ flowmaster mufflers coming from shorty headers, and that's about it. for the time being i want to stay below $1k. i was thinking about underdrive pulleys, a CAI, and a chip to start with. won't be doing this for another couple of months cuz i'll need to get my old job back first..., but just to last til then i'll be grabbing a K&N air filter (worth the money?). are those OK for starters? or should i be looking somewhere else? any particular order they should be done in if at all (i.e save the chip for last maybe)?

also..., w/ the exhaust, mufflers, and headers, how much total HP at the wheels should i be looking at? unfortunately i haven't had my car dynoed yet.


sorry for so many questions in a first post...


thx in advance and srry for any typoes



*EDIT* btw, i eventually want to get it over 300hp, not sure if it will be w/ the stock motor or not, cuz my dad has a 289 that is in good shape lying around. when i move out in a year i will see if i can convert it to a manual easy nuff, but before that i'll drop in some 3.73 gears.

hp is gonna' depend on the diameter of the catback.

IF you're gonna' get the K&N, it'll be worthless when you get your CAI.

You can do the chip/CAI/UDPs, but if you want anywhere near 300 hp, you're going to need a P&P and a cam.

ya, i know the filter will be worthless when i get the CAI, i would only get it if i wouldn't get the CAI for a while.., anyways, thnx for the advice.


btw, how much $ would the P&P and the cam run? and how much HP should i be looking for from those?

depends on where you go.

Top places are moranav6racing.com, rpm-mustangs.com, and supersixmotorsports.com It's been a while since I've checked the prices, but I think it should be around 200 dollars for heads, and around the same for intake manifolds.

Cams depend on whether or not you get a custom grind, but they're $250 at comp cams. I think you can get a custom grind for a little better at one of the places above.

but it'd be cheaper with a local guy, most likely . ..

with a 3 angle p&p & cam, you should have around 245+ rwhp, which, around 275+ hp at the crank. with a 5 angle you may get 5-10 more.

if you go with a power adder later add another 50-75% depending on boost.
