Default GDPs V6 Mustang Build Log

Ok so Im getting ready to seriously start modding my V6 for power and handling. I am creating this post to reserve future mods/pics/details of said build. Im not 100% sure on the eaton as I may just go full N/A and focus on handling. Just a fun DD.

What I have: A slightly non stock 2003 Ford Mustang V6.

What I want: Suspension upgrades, exterior upgrades, Cam, Ported heads and intakes.


Progress:

- MAC Long Tubes, BBK Shorty H Pipe, MAC Catback. *Updated*

- BBK Cold air intake.

- Xcal3 93 octane tune.

- Billet interior upgrades with blue LED gauges.

- Full Length Subframe Connectors.

- Rear Seat Delete.

- 8.8 Rear end w/ 4.10 gears

- Tokico Blue shocks/struts

- Eibach Pro Kit lowering springs

- Steeda 3 bolt Caster/Chamer plates

- Steeda bumpsteer kit

- 25% ASP Underdrive pulley (crank)

- JMOD: 4R70W transmission shift kit.

- Innovate LC1 + DB Wideband gague and Autometer lunar boost guage.


More to come as its bought/installed.


There here is my engine bay with the BBK cold air intake on the left. The shiney piping =P


Here is the finished Cluster light conversion..... cell pic again =P



Suspension stuff before install


After the springs, struts/shocks



And after my rear seat delete kit install. Thanks to Ed for telling me about shredder performance (I think thats the name).









Sorry they are cell phone pics I really need a camera but really dont want to pay $100 for one heh. Also my cell phone does not pick up black very well I guess. The carpet on that is a way darker black than that. It that same color as the leather if not a tad darker. It looks really good. The best thing is the bottom panels are velcro onto the back panel so they can be used as storage.

on V6 stangs with a blower are you going to build up the motor? or do something like 8-10PSI? I'd assume with the Blower at 8PSI you'll be making anywhere between 250-275WHP?

I have no clue about V6 Blown Stangs, what're your power goals? and the gears sound neat =]

Sorry yes, I estimate anywhere from 250-295HP at 8PSI stock internals. Im happy with that. Its just a V6, if I wanted anymore power I would just save the $ and get a GT =P But not too many M112d V6s.

It's becoming more popular, I think because you get V8 power with V6 fuel economy. I'd like to see how a Twin Turbo setup would work on a V6 Stang, sounds like a lot of custom work though...and custom work means $$.

How much is the Supercharger kit for your mustang?

http://tmaturbo.com/ for your TT question. And yeah root style blowers are awsome. It will cost me about 4k to have it installed, tuned, and ready to go.

610whp at 17PSI, not bad.

yeah Roots style is the only supercharger worth getting these days, actually makes supercharging competitive to Turbos.

I haven't Dynoed it yet, but I'll estimate around 280-300RWHP.

There are twin turbo mustangs, of course they are built up with forged racing internals, that blow the doors off of stock 03 Cobra terminators, was trying to find an online article about one but I couldn't locate it, read it about 4 years ago, guy did some pretty impressive building on it, it was even in Hot Rod magazine.

btw, why not go:

Exhaust--->Eaton--->Gears?

Then you'd get the bulk of your power quicker, better gearing on a stock engine sound like the suck.

like I said the eaton will be the last thing. Also ive changed the plan from gears and a tlok to a whole 8.8 rear end swap. So its will be exhaust, rear end, suspension (possibly done at the same time as the rear end swap), then the eaton.

Im not really trying to go for all out drag racer here. Just a more powerful fun to drive DD. I want to do all supporting mods first to compliment the eaton.

Ok guys/gals first pics will come tomorrow if I can remember, just the interior thus far with billet stuff.

Next week mondayish will be the exhaust.
