It has a 3.8l v6(I already know what your thinking) with dual exhaust and soon to be cold air induction.
77k with 17" cobra rims.

They gave me $1000 trade in for my 96 toward this car so i couldn't resist. Payments are $124 a month. When i stops snowing i will post more pics of the car.

I got a friend that supercharged his mustang. He took it to the local track today and his motor seized on him while he was using tires from a friend of his that ruined his rear end in his mustang 2 weeks ago at the same track. lol

Before you invest the money on forced induction. I would build and stroke that motor with a 4.2 stroker kit. It wall make it strong enough to run higher boost.

Well this car is defently not going to break any speed records as it wasn't designed for that plus my 96 mustang had enough power for me. This car has about the same power as my truck just different gears. I am thinking about 373's for it.

I would do 4.10's being that it is auto. Get a programmer on it too and that will pep it up a good bit along with the CAI. BTW on the cai go with the fender through design. I had it on my 04 v6 and it worked awesome. It's the only true cai for mustangs anyway.

I like how there is a boost gauge but no boost. LOL.

Clean car though. My ex had a 02 and it moved ok. I got it to chirp 2nd stock. It was an auto too.

cold air induction and chip are the first things to be done to it. Then i will throw some 410's or 373's not sure yet which i will use. After that depends on money.

the 95-95 3.8s made 150 hp, the 96-99 made about 170 and the 99 and ups made 190 with alot more torque. All in all pretty peppy cars. Im looking for a 95 v6 with a 8:2:1 compression ratio since they really like 10lbs of boost on stock internals.
