    I have a auto 2004 3.9l v6 mustang and am looking to turn it from a daily driver to a manual twin turbo drift car. I have some controversial things about my ideas with this build. I dont not make alot of money so I plan on building and driving this for a long period. I do own a honda civic lel so I wont be dailying the mustang.

    All I have installed is a SR performance CAI and soon to be installing a true dual exhaust custom fabbed from a local shop.

    In the next year or 2 I want to install underdrive pullies, new wheels and rims, swaybars, t-lok with 3.75 gears, Coil overs, and strut tower braces front and rear.

    After this I want to do the manual swap I am going to be buying a donor car for this

    I am currently looking into what will be the next best step.

    1, do what alot others do when they reach this point and do head/cam/intake and call it a day.

    2, or use another intake like the windstar or f150 (btw what intakes fit on the 3.9l v6 engine) then do head and cam (I also plan on ordering off of supersixmotorsports)

    just one thing will the ported lower and upper intake be better for performance and turboing than the other intakes?

    I want the windstar intake because its unique to my mustang and i think would look awesome over 2 turbos but i want performance over anything.

    I dont even want to get into turbo ing yet and am probably just gonna get a shop to do it for me.

    I am an intermediate mechanic. sometimes a little retarded :p

    Okay well I just think the twin turbos would sound cool and make those gt guys jealous

    What windstar intake fit the 3.9l engine?
