Today at work i got an offer i might not b able to resit...97mustang 3.8 5spd...no rust on body(very uncommon for MI seeing as its a 97)

Im not used to working on these i usally work on 2.3L fourbangers. Dont kno much about them...

Now it already needs a clutch,front crank seal, and oilpan/oil pan gasket. it only has 96xxx on it.

Now my question is.....was kinda bolt-ons are there 4this type of motor. I kno (or thought) they made a somewat "bolt-on" s/c kit. Just tryin to figure out if ill fix the probs and sell it or keep it and play around with it?

let me kno thanx

Sorry if theres a thread already exsisting....

well theres your basic exhaust and long tube headers if you wish
plenty of ebay CAI's
underdrive pulleys
i believe theres a s/c kit somewhere for it
there is a site that makes turbo kits if you have the $$$
also split port swap for it or porting the intakes and such
also rear end gears

they have all the normal boltons and there are supercharger kits, but that engine is right at blowing a head gasket its pretty common for the year around 87k miles

If you get it....

Do a split port swap, or find a 4.2L block and swap away. Then add your bolt ons and boost:yes
