Hey guys what up, I know you've probably been asked this question a million times. But I needed some advice on what would be the best thing to do with $1200, to get more Hp out of my V6 mustang 5spd?(its stock) What do you guys think about a turbo? Yes or no?

A turbo kit is going to cost you alot more than $1200.

If you can afford a turbo I dont see any reason why you shouldnt get it.

As far as the $1200, I would at least invest in a set of gears. I'll let your fellow 6'rs advise on the rest.

about $6000 worth of stuff :sterb:

Injectors, Intake, Headers, Fuel pump, Fuel rails, tap your oil pan and get some oil feed and discharge lines, cooling lines inlet and outlet, Intercooler would help, which means either creating a new mount or find one that will fit, like off the 740 Volvo.

the you have to think of the turbo, then waste gate (internal or external) Swing valve, boost guage (controler if wanted), acuator plumbing...its costly.

That's getting pretty close in cost to a programmer, which you don't have to send out everytime you make a change.

SCT Xcaliber II, diablo predator sport tuner, basically it does the same thing as a chip...just without the chip and you can edit, add, remove things you have programmed out or in when you want without getting a chip reflashed.
