Well, I figured I'd start a post for all of us V6 owners... See who's alive around here seeing that I don't see much other posting in here... lol... I know some of you guys, and others I don't... I'm Joe... I'm just curious to see what others have done to their cars... I'm planning on more mods but here's the current list...

Car: 2001 Mustang V6 5-Speed

Suspension: Steeda Sport Springs, Steeda Camber Caster Plates, Tokico Shocks (non adjustable), Steeda Aluminum Upper and Lower Control Arms, Steeda Front and Rear Sway Bars, Steeda Subframe Connectors, Steeda X2 Balljoints (still in box), Steeda Bump-Steer Kit (still in box)

Performance: Cold Air Intake, MAC Catback Exhaust

Transmission: Steeda Short Throw Shifter

Stereo: MB Quart Components (front & rear), MTX 4244 Amp (speakers), Rockford Fosgate 250IIai Amp (subs), MTX Thunder 5500 12" Subwoofer

Interior Modifications: Rear Seat Delete Kit, Red Neon Lighting (still under the dash from the F&F Days... lol), White Faced Gauges

Exterior Modifications: Steeda Spoiler

Future Plans... I guess we'll just wait and see, I'm not quite sure what entirely yet... I do know that the next plan is a 8.8" Rear End, Hardned Axles, Trac Loc, and 3.73 or 4.10 gears... Oh and Drag Radials... :thumbs_up

Oh yeah, and she does a 15.550 in the 1/4th... Wait, my Sig already brags about that... lol...

I figured you'd be jumping on that 8.8 when I saw it in the FS section.

Ok, I'll go find one and hit a cat with it... lol Of course we have to have a teal camaro in the sh!t pile across the street... So I wasn't quite sure... I don't exactly deal with customers often so I was baffled...

Mine will be with all the goodies from the block on up.


I found a guy parting out a GT near O'Hare and will be picking it up soon,
Then convert it over to 31 spline axels and some other goodies.

Isaac, no one in particular is targeted. :D
But Greg may be uttering his famous words...
"You know that was a V6 that just beat you, Right?" :hehe:

Hi Joe,

I'm Joe too! We (my wife Jeri and I) have a 2003 V-6 Pony Edition. True Blue with the gray interior. The only changes I've made are a Roush shifter and a Recaro seat in place of the stock seat on the driver's side. Other than that, she's stock.

Good, inexpensive fun!!

Drive safely!
