Bad Boys of the V6 Forum
 
The thread is simple. Post up your current mod list of your sixer. Don't include what you're gonna do, or what you'd like to do, only include what you have purchased that's on the car or waiting to go on as you can always follow back up on your post. ONLY POST YOUR LIST, NO REPLYS!!!

Also, in addition to your list, make a DOs, and DON'Ts list. In other words, list what you liked about your set up in the DO area, and what you're kicking yourself in the rear end for in the Don'ts. Yet again, don't list things you don't have. This is for those of you that love your exhaust set up in comparison to others, but you're kicking yourself in the rear end for getting a bad x pipe, ebay CAI, or just whatever you've done you regret doing so.

A few, not a lot, but a few pics would also be nice so people can see what these mods will look like on their ride.

The reason for this thread is so that people can learn from other people and see what others are doing.

RE: What's Your Mod List (See what others are doing)
 
I'll get started using my old 1998 Mustang V6. I don't have it anymore, but it's a good baseline for new members and others to follow.

Engine
Ebay Cold Air Intake w/ K&N Filter
56mm BBK Throttle Body
Ported/Polished Upper Intake Only
ASP 24% Reduction Underdrive Pullies

Ignition
Red 9mm Spark Plug Wires

Tuning
Diablo Predator Tuner (custom tuned)

Exhaust
94-98 V6 Off Road X Pipe
Steeda MIL Eliminators
Magnaflow GT Cat Backs 94-98

Drivetrain
3.73 Motive Gears
Motive Bearing Kit
23 Tooth Speedo Corrector Gear
Ford Racing T-Lok Limited Slip Differential for 7.5" Rear Ends

Exterior
14" Steeda Shortie Antenna
17" Saleen Replica Chrome Rims

Audio
Sony X-Plod Stereo
4 5" X 7" Boston Acoustic Speakers
Sealed Dual Sub Box
2 10" JL Audio W2 Subs
1200 W Sony Pro Series 2 Channel Amp
8 Gauge Power Amp PowerCable


Pros - The Magnaflow Exhaust sounded awesome. When I had the car on the dyno, the sound was extremely impressive, so impressive the shop owner said that's got to be the best exhaust he's ever heard on a sixer. Nice and deep and mellow down low, but fairly loud up top with little sound loss, in other words, you don't get as much of that V6 sound in their exhaust as other brands tend to get. The Diablo tune also drastically improvedmy automattic transmission. It only made 5 rwhp on the dyno, but the gains by the tranny made it so worth the cost. My custom tuning also helped out a lot as well. Boston Acoustic speakers were also a nice addition, just wish I had a better stereo at the time.

Cons - The ebay CAI was one of my biggest mistakes I made with that car. It wasn't one of the $25 cheapies, but it wasn't name brand either. There were no fitting issues, but the chrome faded on the CAI after 2 or so months, and within a year the blue hoses begain to dry rot, and the chrome hose clamps started to fade as well as corrode. Another don't was my Sony stereo. While Sony makes great stuff, their stereo equipment is crap. My amp is OK, but that stereo was crap. I did like how you could do a lot of in depth tuning, but the power wattage was so low, I had to drastically turn down my power on my subs just so I could hear my speakers. Also, while the 14" shortie antenna looked nice, it was just not practical if you live over 30 miles away from the broadcast tower, because my signal was cut in half, along with the height, like I said, looks great, but should really only be used for show if you live away from the city.

Suggestions -In my 5.0 I have an Clarion flip out stereo, which allows for decent tuning, but the amp inside the Clarion is much more powerful than others I've heard. If you're running subs, you could still use a separate amp to power the speakers, but the built in amp the Clarion has is still pretty good. I now run a BBK CAI in my 5.p, which is light years above my old ebay CAI in my sixer, 3 years old and still looks good as new.

Ok, deep breath..... 2000 V6

Motor/Drive train: 4.2L fully forged short block, Crower cam, custom heads (by me), warmed over valve train,ported stock lower intake (by me), custom boxed upper intake (by me), ported Eaton M112, Cobra TB (port matched), ported inlet, 2.8" UPR blower pulley, 60 lb injectors, SVT fuel pump, custom fuel rail (by me), Lightning MAF, custom street legal exhaust running into Spin tech 333SCS mufflers (kicked out the sides), Ron Davis Aluminum radiator, Optima battery, A/C delete, Ram clutch, Tremec World Class T5 tranny, Roush Classic shifter, Eaton 7.5" rear end with FRPP 3.73 gears.

Suspension: Springs: 1050lb/inch fronts and650 lb/in rears (somewhere between 3 1/2 and 4" drop), Bilstein shocks/struts (Roush spec),Roush front sway bar, GT rear sway bar, Roush control arms, full array of Energy Suspension poly, Steeda X2 ball joints, Flaming River steering, Roush 13" slotted/cross drilled rotors at all four corners, Roush front calipers, hawk pads, SS lines

Wheels/tires:
Roush Argents 18x9 front, 18x10 rear
265/35 BGF KD fronts, 295/35 BGF drags rear (drag strip) 295/35 BFG KD (road course)
'93 SVT- R 17" wheels for 'harder' track days with 275/40 Kumho 710s all the way around.

Outside: Roush Stage 1 aeropackage (Splitter, side skirts, rear skirts, 3 post wing), All Roush badging, Y2K Cobra R 2 1/2" cowl hood with functional heat extraction, '03 black head light housings

Inside: Roush carbon fiber trim, Roush floor mats, Roush Racing pedals, Roush badging, Autometer A pillar with boost and fuel pressure, Cobreau CR1 seats (bright blue) and harnesses (black), Sparco harness bar (full cage waiting to go in), rear seat delete, stereo delete, removed all "dead weight" (insulation, extra wires etc....), empty trunk with basic carpet for looks JACK ROUSH AUTOGRAPHED DASH

Plans: Cage waiting to go in, reworking full suspension this Spring, KB twin screw, two tone paint.

EDIT: I've had people comment that I say the seats are Corbeau CR1s, but in the pic with Jack signing the dash they are Forza seats from Corbeau. (Good eye to all who caught it.) This car has seen many changes over the years. I've run stock leather, both black and blue Forzas, '03 Cobras, '01 Cobras and am now running the blue CR1s in the car - and that's just the seats.Along with those changes it's hadthree sets of wheels on it, four suspension set ups, three hoods, four exhaust systems, two stereo set ups (prior to gutting it),four motors, two different power addersand a host of other junk that I decided against later on.

Pros: This thing outhandles almost anything I run it against. Lacks the power, but brakes and corners like a champ - which is usally the area of the track I can catch the other cars. Side exhaust is something I'd never go with out now. It cleans up the rear so well when doing suspension work. It is a great track car, and also made a good daily driver (which is why I bought it in the first place).

Cons: Not exactly a good daily driver any more. But I wouldn't trade it for anything. Wish I could make more power down lower in the RPM band. (Hense the KB unit going on.)

its not going to be much..... 2002 V6 5 Speedblack

Interior :
-Alpine CD player, amazing sound quality def recommend, makes the stock speakers sound alot better
-Pioneer Speakers, i would go with Boston Acoustics if i were to buyaftermarket onesagain

Exterior:
-232 badges -- autobadges.com ROCKS fast shipping and amazing customer service
let me say that again.....autobadges.com is the BEST in the buisiness
-silver 'mustang' back bumper inserts, i would get the metel ones if i were to buy them again

Performance:
- MAC cold air intake- looks good, i didnt pay for it, so it makes it even better! the rubber fittings are starting to crack, dont know if any other brand has better rubber seals.
- SPEC Stage 1 clutch- AMAZING learning experience putting it in myself, i would say go for it instead of paying somebody to do it, if you have a shop you can work at, or even have the right tools at your house. the clutch feels better than stock, grabbs alot harder and feelsmore crisp. but i would go stage 2 if i would have known how 'light' the pedal was going to feel, it feels lighter than stock. id like the stiffer pedal and more agressive feel of a stage 2 or 3 even if my car didnt have the power to need the stiffer clutch.
-MAC cat back. i would NOT pay somebody 350 bucks to put this system in again, i got totally ripped off, i would buy mufflers and have a shop custom make a midpipe and bend some duals for me, the macs sound good but i dont think they would sound good without cats. but just for a bolt on with the y... i have had many MANY compliments on the look and sound of it, and the duals look amazing with the tips, they are level with the ground, and ive seen some V6's with tips that point down, and i think that looks horrible. -STEEDA firewall adjuster, i love it, i can adjust where the friction point is on the travel of the clutch pedal. a PITA to install since you have to cut the old firewall plastic piece out, (a dremmel helps) but it was worth it.
-Brakes, do NOT get metal brake pads, i got em and HATE having to clean my wheels twice a day... go ceramic. im bout to buy ceramic just so i dont have to deal with it anymore. it sucks because i just spent 50 bucks on the other ones.

My greatest piece of advice, from this whole car experience that i have had, is attempt to do the work yourself, ask questions, ask so many questions that people get annoyed, just so you fully understand what to do. and try and do everything yourself, the things you will learn, and the confidence you will have after you do it, it feels so good to know that every part you put on your car, was done by you, and it works, you know the work was done right, so theres my little rant, ask people who know what they are talking about and get the hands and arms a little greasy!!!!!!

Pros: I had no problems whatsoever with my ebay intake I bought from K2 Motors. It fit fine, and works just like every other intake. Its lost its luster slightly, but nothing big at all. The H&R springs were my best mod in my opinion along with the steeda short throw. The springs in combination with the blisten shocks and struts make this baby handle like a charm and the ride is very smooth and nice.Also removing the cats was the best move I could have made sound wise, minus the slight high pitch in the upper rpms.

Cons: The SCT performance chip fryed as soon as I did another mod to my car. Every time you "mess" with your car, it must be taken out and re-programmed for it to work good. Also the Sony Explod's were complete crap. They lived up to their name and exploded about a month or so after I have gotten them installed in a custom box for them to fit my trunk. Also the pulley is very hard to tell the difference for me from the stock pulley excpect at higher rpms in the later gears, I do feel more pull for sure.

Notes
If you are wondering about all the neon lighting, I do my own custom wiring work. Please don't think of me as a riccer with wires all over the place. I will have to say it is a nice clean look :-)

Within the next month, I plan to get 3.73 gears, and a racing clutch (unsure of what brand yet)

RE: What's Your Mod List (See what others are doing)
 
Engine
ASP 25% UDP
K&N Filter w/silencer removed
SCT X-cal2 flash tuner programmed by Justin at vmptuning.com


Ignition
Screamin' demon coil pack
9mm Stangwires


Exhaust
GT Takeoffs w/o H-pipe

Drivetrain
Steeda tri-ax

Exterior
17" Bullitt rims OEM off an 03 GT
GT fog lights

Suspension
Mach 1 suspension package
600 lb/in Front Springs 250 lb/in Rear Springs
Tokico Shocks and Struts
MM subframe connectors
Mach 1 rear sway bar
Mach 1 front sway bar (waiting to be installed)

Pros - The suspension is awesome, the car actually handles likes a sports car now. Body roll is nearly gone, understeer has been taken care of, and body flex was taken care of by the subframe connectors. The tri-ax makes shifting fun again. UDP gives a little more pep and a little better fuel economy, although that could be me driving more responsibly who knows.

Cons - Ebay CAI sucks, I will be taking it off when I get time. I will probably go with a K&N filter with silencer removed. (Done and much better)

Now that the suspension is done I need to save up for some real performance mods.
