He's gonna kill you.greenfieldracin said:My friend just got a 05 auto v6 mustang and wants to race. I have a 98 v6 with full exhaust,intake, and short shifter, who would win?
Intake & exhaust won't give you 30 hp. No way in heck.tex117 said:wait a minute your saying that the 05 v6 has 40 horses on him stock or 40 horses on him with the mods. i know those pre 99 v6's are weak but he should of picked up 30 horses with the mods. dont get me wrong i know the 05 will win but i was just confused about the horse power.
Yes, in fact, a stock 01 would run neck and neck with a stock 05 provided they are both manuals.PancakeOfDoom said:so..., if you had a and '01 and an '05 v6..., the '01 w/ headers and 2.25" exhaust, '05 stock..., who should win? provided that the '05 driver doesn't know about powerbraking and other lil tricks? probably that '01?
ok so a cai will give roughlly 10 hp, therefore the exhaust is only giving 2 hp?kscoyote said:Intake & exhaust won't give you 30 hp. No way in heck.
There isn't enough flow. I gave him 12 or so, assuming the exhaust wasn't too big.
You can't add it up. HP is ultimately determined by airflow, fuel and cam.tex117 said:ok so a cai will give roughlly 10 hp, therefore the exhaust is only giving 2 hp?
and if so do you mean his exhaust or any v6 exhaust thats on a fairly stock motor? cause i know i got more than 2 hp out of my 2" true dual exhaust.
it advances the timing, and allows better efficiency from higher octane fuel. Better efficiency = more power.tex117 said:if thats the case then what would throwing a superchip into the mix do? i know that wont help air flow but it has alot to do with the fuel
I'm wrong sometimes, if fact, when I had my 98 v6, and was figuring the whole thing out, I was wrong quite often. I learned a lot from Silverstang & Glen.dollarbill said:I don't see the 98 beating the 05 either. The mods don't add up to much hp. KS is right as always, he has a lot of knowledge about the V6 cars.

If you don't change the cam, the MOST you can pick up from a CAI and dual exhaust is 17-20 in the BEST of conditions. And that's for a 99+ car, for a pre-98, it'll be 20-25% less because the engine simply cannot flow that much air.
CAI may get you anywhere from 5-12 hp, depending on heatsoak, quality of filter, and flow.
2" is perfect for exhaust tubing, you lose a lot of hp & tq when you install 2.5" exhaust pipes or larger.
h-pipes generally give you a bit more torque, x-pipes more hp -Generally.greenfieldracin said:ok, so i wont win, but im still gonna run him if e challenges me! Not to change the subject or anything, but i wanna redo my exhaust so your saying i should use 2'' pipe? Do you recomand an x or h pipe?
kscoyote said:h-pipes generally give you a bit more torque, x-pipes more hp -Generally.
If you're planning to open the engine up wnt do a port & polish, go with 2.25" if you're planning to remain mainly stock, go with 2"
h-pipe's cheaper (usually around $75) as opposed to $400 for a good x-pipe (bad ones are cheaper, but offer no better performance than an h-pipe.greenfieldracin said:ok, so what would you recomand, hp or torque? I dont plan on gears cuz of the cost, so i was thinking h pipe to help get more torque.
