    At first when these cars come out I didnt care for them to much, but they have kinda grew on me. My 03 is soon to be paid off and thinking about getting an 05. If I do buy one it will have some type of power adder on it,probablly nitrous and a tune with supporting mods. What are these cars running with a 75 shot? I know they respond well to fi, they make more power than the 3.8 do.

    While the S197s arent bad looking I have yet to see a modded one that made me :drool: like i do the SN95s. A 75shot should be easily in the mid 13's i would think.

    I think it would put it in the 12's tuned. They run 9.6 in the 1/8 with a generic tune and cai.

    Mines got

    Ford GT500 exhaust with x-pipe
    Diablo sport tuner
    BBK intake

    and it runs 14.5 in the 1/2

    So with a 75 shot I would say low 13s

    theyve got great potential. just make sure to spend quite a bit of money on the exterior. the s197 v6's dont look to great stock

    I disagree, I think they look really good stock except for the wheels.Ilike the grill without fog lights.

    the grill looks good, but the lower part of the bumper looks like crap, putting a Bullitt front on would be tits. i also think that GT painted side skirts and a GT or California Special rear bumper should always be added.

    I'm not impressed with them at all, especially once you start heavily modding. I'd keep the 3.8.

    Definitlly going to keep the 3.8. I'm at the point where it's become an investment. I dont think I would buy another v6 mustang though, considering what I've got in this car to make it fast. I would like to find a 3vgt or a 4v 99-04.Once I pay this car off. Maybe even an evo or sti,boost is the shiznit.
