1998 Ford Mustang V6.
 
Hey guys, just thought I'd drop by here, I'm Schwaebz's friend (the owner of the 99 Mustang GT).

I've got a 1998 Ford Mustang V6, I've done a lot to it, although gas mileage is a secondary thing to me, I have greatly increased it with my current mods.

Originally my car was a 3.8L v6. I have since stroked the motor out to a 4.2, overbore of about .03 and honed it, that alone drastically increased gas mileage as well as my vehicle's power. Other mods include, a high flow cold air intake, free flowing exhaust (No crossover) just straight pipes back from the cats into mufflers. My car is also lowered so it gets a minor aerodynamic airflow advantage. Lastly I've got 3 custom tunes from Brenspeed. One for economy (for long trips) and two that are interchangeable for performance. I use the SCT X-Cal 2 to change between tunes, I normally run the economy tune unless I'm autocrossing in San Diego, with the economy tune I normally get around 28MPG in the city and about 32MPG on the highway. Who says domestic muscle cars can't get good gas mileage??

My plans are to get underdriver pullies, a higher flowing fuel pump to less restrict the fuel lines, aerodynamic front and rear splitters, and some other modifications.

haha, like I said FE is a secondary notion to performance, but, it's something we've ALL got to think about. And heck, having to run 91 octane makes me think about fuel efficiency ;)

Welcome to EM! The nose on your Mustang is excellent (very clean lines). And thanks for the advice on under drive pullies. I am adding that to my todo list.

The Stig Rules!

haha, thank you. It does look much better than the stock front that it had. Cobra bumpers are great on my bodystyle. No problem, glad I could help. I have a feeling I'll be on this site giving out as much advice as possible.

Yes, yes The Stig does rule :D

Wow, nice to see someone pepping up the ol 3.8. On the flip side, how does it run in the 1/4?

It's not a drag car so I wouldn't know. I use it for autocrossing. My suspension is built for handling.
