cheap bolt ons...

i kno this is a common topic, but i bought a pretty stock 94 mustang not too long ago and i just installed my k&n intake (sounds amazing by the way) and im switching to synthetic oil to get a couple extra horses but idk what i should buy next for under or around 200 bucks, and how much would it cost to drop my car like 2 inches to get a better stance and a little better handling?

i don't know about the drop, but a exaust you can find for a little bit more than 200, and after that long tube headers would be good

i believe it has some sort of short tube headers on it, unless they came stock but they look aftermarket

shorties arn't doing anything for you unless you turbo, they don't give you any power gain over stock

shorties can give some power..but the design on the SN95 V6s are like any other shorty design....as for the 99-04 V6s have manifolds as the 94-98s came with factory headers.....get longtubes or no aftermarket headers at all....Hpipe or Xpipe...flowmasters....in that order...start from front to back....

just a V6 with a bad belt slip under the hood

The first mod to any mustang I ever buy will be gears. How much do those run? I'm used to high revving excitement, so 4.10s all the way.

I like the way this guy thinks....

I some how think a geared stang would > a stang with just exhaust


Anyway my first mod to a pre 99 mustang would be a split port swap -
