My Mustang pretty close to right after I bought it. Yes its a V-6, but I bought it when I was 15 with my own money, so its not like I could afford a V-8, little own insurance. This was also taken before I had dual exhaust put on the car. Now the bad...









The process of me pulling the motor while scraping the car. Sorry for the crappy quality pictures, I used my Blackberry camera. It was a sad day :[ I miss the car a lot.

This is a pre 99 3.8 though, they were only single port with a measly 150 hp. Though I am more of a fan of the 3.8. I still have the motor and trans as well.

Yea, the motor can be a torque monster when you start pushing it. It would just need some work before it would be able to beat the 4.0, so I might as well direct my time/effort towards that.

You can convert an older 3.8 into a split port injection. I had the stuff to do it when I had the car, but never got around too it due to a lot of modification. Guess it would make the engine even more unique.
