Guess what? It is always good to know what kind of car you are driving. This is basic car knowledge friend.

Agreed, e92involved. I know the car better than I can type. Somehow my inquiries about some basic mods in this forum are being foreshadowed by type-o's, posting edicate, and other s***, sadly. In any event, informative posts are appreciated. I'm goin' for a cruise.....

Hilarious!!!

Don't do the intake, it's a waste of money on a value standpoint. Get an exhaust and a tune first!!

Agree on value point with stage 1 vs. 2. Full exhaust and pulleys are enroute. As for tune, are there any daily driving negatives to mods w/o a tune (ie: rough idol, CEL, etc.)? Eventually it will get done, but the Car has 3500 miles, warrantee will be void I assume after tune? To all the "thread police" out there, I am searching this forum as you read this...

Why do these north American car companies keep creating ugly piles of shit and cannot let go of their past. Make a new car ... Taurus piss off, spend that money updating the shape of the mustang or do something a lot of people would actually love not just like

If you get the drop in high flow from afe it's 90 bucks for 5 hp 5 tq ... At least that's the claim. Pretty cheap overall. I'd also say quickest bang for buck you could do a tune and under drive pulley for around 1300 and net 20 hp which is pretty good, ultimately opening up the exhaust ultimately gives the best gains especially along w a tune but cost wise your at least 3400 for that stuff

Aside from posting two threads... do you ever post anything other than "looks good" or "do a search"? Just saying...
