    I traded my v6 for a 96 GT.
    I want you guys to tell me everything about it.
    I want to know good ways to make safe reliable power out of it. Right now I'm chasing a misfire in cylinder 6. But other than that and some maintenence I love it here the pics.

    PI swap! That'll give it a nice boost in performance.

    Second things second, lower it even more after that.



    On a serious note, some gears, PI intake, and a short throw should make it plenty more fun. Then you can go into bigger and bigger things as time progresses.

    PI swap, headers, blower. In that order. Just remember, bolt ons are a waste of time unless you have some serious modifications. As far as the misfire check plugs, wires, and coil packs, if they look old, they may be worth replacing regardless.

    Finally you grow up a little.

    I want you guys to tell me everything about it.
    I thought I have been doing that since you got the car?

    I want to know good ways to make safe reliable power out of it. Right now I'm chasing a misfire in cylinder 6. But other than that and some maintenence I love it here the pics


    Mark VIII short block+Pi heads=safe, reliable, fun power.

    He already changed plugs, wires, coil packs, and swapped injectors around. He keeps getting junk on the #6 plug. I think he has an issue a little deeper.

    I was going to say, don't you work with a guy that knows the mod motors in and out?? I'm sure lwarrior1016 has some spare parts and plenty of knowledge to get you on the right track with this build

    Edit: Great trade by the way!

    He used to work with me, then he got dumb and went to a different job. If he was still here we would have this thing torn down already lol.

    Last night it threw a misfire 6 and 3 code. Later today I'm going get a pi intake to fix my vacuum leak. And replace the bad 02 sensor. I'll probably end up cutting my sings this weekend. Trying to get low low like [MENTION=15502]Ferocious[/MENTION] hahaha

    I kept my 4.10 rear end from the v6. When I put that on idk how far out the wheels will sit. Might have to do that before I lower it
