    My name is Trystan, 16 years old, and just bought my first mustang! 99 3.8 liter, DD.
    My first car was a 1995 F-150 Flareside with a 4.9 liter V6, I'm used to small upkeep
    like changing oil, spark plugs and wires, general detailing of engines, and other things.
    As I'm sure many of you know the mod craze hit hard when I got my new car, plans of M112 installs and huge, sticky drag tires in the back. But reality hit and I've realized that with my low income I would settle for a nice N/A build, wind star intake, t-lok, and other things. I'm new to any performance mods so please bear with me and I'll do my best to research before asking! Glad to be here!

    Welcome!!

    I'm assuming you bought a v6?
    If so,
    If money is an issue I'd recommend doing rear end gears, I think its the best bang for your buck. Windstar intake is a nice upgrade.

    Of course I'd recommend 4.2 swap with m112 since that's my setup, but its not really economical.

    Ive read over your thread a lot and that is the setup I want, but I'm not comfortable with engine swaps just yet even though the car was bought with the purpose of a 4.2 swap and eventually a M112, but then the M112 install looked beyond me as well, that's my ideal setup but beyond my capabilities unfortunately.

    Yeah thats understandable.
    I beliebe our forum sponsor stage3 motorsports sells a supercharger for he v6s [MENTION=18472][email protected][/MENTION]. I haven't seen anyone do it, but it looks like a sweet setup. But its pricy at I think 4k?

    Installing supercharger is super easy, its just the tuning which you can take to your local dyno tune to do.

    Last thing I saw about the M112 with a mysteed adapter was custom fuel rails and other things and it looked beyond me, I know I can piece one together cheap and I could pay for the tune I just don't know if I can install it. If it's easy that's honestly the route I've always wanted! If anyone could help I can make a different thread if it's no trouble.

    Welcome.


    You can upload your pictures to the photobucket app if you have an account and just paste the code.
    At least that's what I do when I post directly from my iPhone.

    I used a mini van fuel rail and modded it.

    I'm not sure of your mechanical abilities, but installing a supercharger kit is pretty straight forward.
    Its just the tuning and doing the corresponding mods (internals and what not) + getting the correct fuel pump, injectors and maf. If you dont get crazy, stock internals should be fine.

    Doing the 4.2 v6 swap and m112 supercharger, well that requires a bit more work.

    First off thank you everyone for a warm welcome! And orange, through thread or Pm do you think I could pick your brain on this install? I worked on slightly less mechanical things (airsoft guns and lawn equipment) but I can do the fuel injectors, pump, and other things I'm sure, Id just be more comfortable with an experienced person helping me if you don't mind?
