Default Mods for late model Thunderbird?

I know you guys may not be as knowledgeable on this subject as you are with Mustangs, but my father and I are considering buying an 05 Thunderbird together. Has anyone here had any personal experience with these? I also haven't seen ANY aftermarket for these. Anyone got any suggestions, such as power adders, exhaust, perhaps forced induction?

Thanks!

Doubt you'll find much for the 3.9l V8. Just not enough market for that motor.

Yeah, I've noticed that. It's a kind of a bummer, always liked that roadster style. They should have incorporated the 4.6.

i did too.
YOU convinced me to sell it
well that and the fact that the ball joints were about to give.

and that the headliner was starting to sagg
and that unless i wanted to do a pi swapp + eaton + gears
and still not be too fast then it was a waste of time

still great point a to b car

Fine...I'll admit it

this is the most honorable thing you guys will ever see

S197 TEKKKKKK!!!!


and just like that I win.


STILL

You OT guys know anything about the newer T-birds? They're pretty f'n obscure, can't really find anything online so I guess that kind of f**ks my chances for finding anything else. Wish we had the resources to swap in a supercharged 4.6L.
