Hey everyone, newbie here, with some questions.

My friend was selling his mustang which I jumped on. But now, I want to give it a little more power than what it has. power/mpg's all the fun stuff. Was wondering what any of you guys have done to your v6's. mine is a 96.

Welcome to the Mustang world and MM. I've got a few links to help you out:

Also, keep in mind that generally more power = less mpg. If you want to blow the doors off the latest GT500 or whatever, you're going to take a serious hit in mpg to do so.
Can a v6 blow the doors of the latest gt500 without doing any kind of swap

Its the internet, chill out bro!

Of course, if you don't consider a stroker engine a swap. Nearly anything can be done if price isn't a factor. Reinforce the bottom end with forged internals, turn up the boost and invest in putting all that power to the ground. Then make your car as light as possible and have fun blazing through your gearbox. If that still doesn't do it, give it a shot of NOS. Of course I over-simplified it, none of it would be easy but without a doubt it's possible. Tom Morana has built some extremely fast V6's. He was way ahead of his time; he built a 12 second V6 using a 1984 Mustang way back in 1990. Nobody was doing that back then. Today his cars are even faster than that.

haha, I dont think I'll be blowing any doors off of anything right now. Keepin my foot off the gas for a bit. I've seen alot of different brands for the intake kits, they all seem fairly similar, is there one that seems to be proven more effective than others? And my other question is over H pipes or X pipes. What is the biggest difference besides sound? does one or the other give more performance gains?

Cold air intakes and exhaust do very, very little on these motors. If you want a CAI, AmericanMuscle.com sells one for like $75 and it's just as good as the overpriced K&N junk. If you want some power from your intake, look into a Windstar swap (use the search feature, there are lots of threads). You literally use the upper intake from a Windstar minivan and net some decent gains but you have to put it all together yourself since VAPauto stopped making their kit.

For exhaust, x pipes sound ricey on these motors. H pipe is the most common choice (unless you have some money to spend on a prochamber which will need to be altered to fit the V6 exhaust manifolds).
