Unhappy Help I need more power

My 1994 V6 has about 100K on it what can I do to give it more spunk at a low cast. I have Flow-master pipes on it and a high flow air intake but thats abot it.

Pretty much all the bolts ons and maybe a rear gear change will help. But its not really going to do much for the car. They only came with 150ish hp, so they are about 50hp down on the newer v6's. Even most modern v6's make close to 300whp.

It just comes down to your budget.

couldn't agree more. All my bolt-ons were, I would say, less effective than even my 75 shot. I've since built the motor, and am now spraying a larger shot for more performance.

'00 Black Coupe - Built 4.3 stroker, s2 heads, mild cam, bolt-on's, and tons of exterior mods.

split port swap is a good place to start with a low budget. you can get most of the parts from the junk yard iirc. yea if you have the budget you could get a new v6 or any gt, that will always be faster. and then id say nitrous is you next best bet. everybody seems to be worried about spraying and detonation... no, if you go conservative (not a 250 shot on a stock motor) and get a good tune for it you should be fine. or if you got the money and rly want to keep that car. gears, f/i... etc. you can go a number of different routes with mustangs, its all about your budget and personal prefference.

I would do some research on a supercharger kit. I dont know anything about them, but in the long run it would be a nice addition, if you are only going to do one thing.
I read there is a race day for V6 Mustangs somewhere in the NE USA, and a V6 Mustang turned a 13 second 1/4 mile..... so it sounds like there is lots of potential.
