    Hi guys, just got my stang about a month ago, and just started lookin online for ways to take it to the next level. Found this messageboard and its time to leech info :)

    I have some competition up at my job.
    First is a guy with a stock RX8.
    Next guy has a stock 2002 Trans Am.
    Next guy has a V8 Stang with headers, cold air, exhaust and a chip.

    Im looking to find a tune to beat them and claim my apha-male-ness


    I have looked many many places and have found the routes to go with my mustang(2000 3.8).

    TwinTurbo will probably be my choice, but superchargers are easier to get and much cheaper.

    Then the NA Tune.
    *What is a NA Tune?*
    I have looked many places for the answer to that question but cant find it :-(
    Will a NA tune compete with the turbo/supercharger?

    Thx
    -AC

    www.v6power.net will be your best bet for questions like this. though they take a little longer to respond, it's worth it.

    Turbo FTW though :thumbup:

    you will lose, why spend all the cash to make the 6 as fsat as them when you could spend less on something faster and more reliable.

    1.What year is your car?
    2.What year/model is the "V8 stang"?
    3.Is the RX8 a auto or 6 speed?

    It sounds like the only decently fast car is the LS1. But a N/A tune is a tune for naturally aspired engine(engines without turbo's, superchargers, or nitrous), it isent a big power source.

    wow, you guys are wicked fast at responding o_O

    yeah so they paid over 10k for their car... i paid 4.2k for mine.so i have like 5.8k to spend to have a car that is on-par with them, and maybe even better :)

    I love my car, and though I wish I had the money for a 2000 Cobra-R, i realize thats out of my reach, so ill make my car the best i can ;-D

    shouldn't matter, RX8's suck anyway. at least every one i've come across has. they're slower then S2000s and cost more. piss on them.

    There still only mid 14 second cars with a decent driver, there slow as hell. If you have the money cheak out www.tmaturbo.com, you should be able to rape GT/RX8 and take the LS1 pretty good.

    i read about a 4 cylinder mini van getting 12 secs on the quarter mile... im sure a 6 cylinder mustang can crank outt performance ;-)

    this is my first car, and im considering tweaking it :)

    Either this or im gonna put down some money for a Ford Focus and do what i can with that :p

    like i said, go to v6power.net and learn a lot more then you will here. Nothing wrong with a v6, my dad has a sweet v6 mustang. may not be the fastest car around but it's more fun to drive then my car.
