Build Thread. 2001 Ford Taurus. Too many Mods!

Hi there long time lurker here! This is my first thread so I apologize if this is in the wrong part of the forum.

I own a 2001 Ford Taurus (war pig) with the 3.0 ohv Vulcan v6 motor with its slushbox 4 speed auto. Final drive ratio of 3.77 (hwy gears) newer models came with 3.99 or something like that. Stock 20city/28hwy although I estimate more like 30 mpg hwy along with many others.

First thing I do is use octane 89 instead of 87. My uncle has the same car and makes many long road trips and swears 89 gets better mpg and I feel the same thing. (carbon build up?)

Next is my Air dam (4inch). Makes the car look better too imo

Partial grill block. The left and right openings are blocked with painted black lexan

The front grill is blocked with painted cardboard with steel as back support and black zip ties holding it together. Its pretty sturdy.
