Was there something wrong with the 2006's

It seems like it takes a lot to get power out of the V3's.

My title is a bit off. I originally posted it going from the Steeda site. I searched for super chargers up there and it seemed to skip over the 2006 year

What are you talking about? The V3 can support up to like 800 hp. Well maybe like 750.

A lot of SC's are listed as 2007 and up because your cooling set up with the octopus hose thermostat housing doesn't work with them. I know with most of the twin screws you need to upgrade to a 2007 crossover thingy to run them. Don't know if you have to do the same thing with a centri like the V3.

V3 = supercharger
3V = 3 valve motor

Is there a mixup?

He was talking about superchargers so I assumed he was talking about the Vortech V3.

Sorry guys i was talking about the 3 valve engine in the 2006's. I'm tossing around the idea of picking one up but it seems like they struggle to make power. The car looks good it has tasteful things done other than the wing is a little tall for my liking but the power seems to be lacking. I'm trying to figure out what else can be done before adding a SC that can get me closer to 375-400 RWHP.

you might bolt on enough stuff to get there but just barely.. I have seen many try and few make it..
I bought my 06 in 07 and didn't have it a month before
i put the
kb 2.6l on top...been racing and breaking shit ever since... I made over 625 to the ground at the craziest point... also missed getting into the 10's by .08.. they shut our strip down...

power adder is the way to go and there are lots of options to choose from... good luck

So if i have an extra 4k left after i buy it the suggestion is don't buy anymore bolt ons just keep saving for a Super Charger? Right now the decision is between a pretty nice stock 2003 Cobra and the car i linked too. The cobra is 15k and the 2006 is only 12k.

You can make around 350-360 with a set of cams, longtubes, and FRPP manifold added to that. I've actually seen that car on craigslist you might be able to get the price down a little more. He has been sitting on it quite a while. It does look like a clean car though there isn't to many clean ones floating around in the area though.

Just get some injectors and nitrous. Tires and suspension and you'll be there.

3 valve cars are respectable and respond very well to bolt-ons, etc. You can make big power and you just need to read some more on the subject. Granted, a coyote 4 valve will on average make about 100 hp more, but that's just progress.

On your original question regarding '06 3 valves, there's nothing to worry about other than the 2 piece spark plugs which just require pulling them every now and then to clean and never seize them to keep them from seizing and breaking off upon removal. Every 30-50k miles would be good to be worry free.

I wouldn't describe 300+rwhp with mild bolt-ons as "struggling for power".
If you're looking for 400rwhp, start saving up for a supercharger kit or turbos. You can get 390rwhp N/A on a stock short block but for the same money, you'd have 450rwhp with forced induction.
I suggest either:

1. CMDPs, UDPs, and turbo kit or,
2. CMDPs, LT headers, and supercharger kit.

If you get the cobra it's already close to 400 hp wouldn't take much to get there

Yeah i'm still stuck between the two. the 2003 Cobra is stock but very clean! the 2006 has a list of mods done. But since i'm new to mustangs i'm going off looks i don't know if the mods are actually good ones.

Steeda Cold Air Intake system
SCT II computer tuner with performance presets for 87, 91, and 93 octane gas.
Corsa Extreme axle-back exhaust system

i think the cobra would be a better engine to build on and in my opinion they look way better than the 3vs but that's just my opinion. also the cobra has a unique factor that the 3v will never have.

If your thinking about nitrous also think about how much your gonna use and where you can fill it up. For me there's only one place near me and its 45 mins away to fill up. To me it wasn't worth it to drive all that way to fill it up.

My 06 has never been on a dyno but I have a lot of bolt-On parts ill give list , and let me tell you factory wheels and tires are not nearly enough to contain it. The 3v engine is very open to bolt on parts and seems to be pretty rock solid. 3v, CAI, FORD RACING INTAKE MANIFOLD, STEEDA UNDERDRIVE PULLEYS, BBK LONGTUBES , WITH CAT XPIPE, GT500 THROTTLE BODY AND SPACER WITH BAMA SCT TUNE,AND 410 GEARS. SEVERAL SUSPENTION MODS AS WELL BUT TO MUCH POWER FOR GOOD LINE TRACTION.
