I assume you want to see gain in the 1/4 mile???
Not this again... There are PLENTY of ways to give your sixxer that extra "oomph". As explained by others, intake+tune will definitely help with your alluring 1/4 mile times, however an 8.8" rear end with tlok and steeper gearing will also knock a huge chunk off of your 60' and 1/4 mile time.
I know a few 4.0L owners who with those above mods were able to get into mid 14s and that was with the nasty stock rubber and zero track experience.
I'm not sure why you think forced induction is the only power adder available to V6 owners, but your information is incorrect.
Oh, and that intake you go on about is likely not gaining you 3 MPG. Forcing more air into a motor that is historically already tuned to run lean from factory (thanks Ford), and without retuning the ECU to manage that air will not lead to better
