Hello,
I just picked up a 60,000 mile 1995 SLE, white w/grey leather...so far I love it. Very spunky yet cushy ride...

Any suggestions on light performance mods to wake the old girl up a little?
Not looking for a race car...just maybe some exhaust and air intake ideas...do these cars resopond well to mods? Naturally aspirated 3800 engine.

Looks like a very nicely set up and informative message board you all have here...

I'm a 12+ year Mustang 5.0 veteran...
From 10 second street strip cars, to magazine feature cars, to a nice 4 door Bonnie...lol...
Finally decided to grow up.....just a little anyway

Just wanted to say hey...

Bob

92-00 Civic intake pipe, K&N RX-4750 or E-1009, Magnaflow F-Body Muff, 180* Stant.


Clean the TB, Flush the Rad, Consider flushing the trans.


That'll do.

Would I want to adapt a dual outlet muffler?

According to the reciepts, the coolant was just flushed and filled...I hope to service the transmission in the next few weeks though, (just got the car a few hours ago, lol)
One thing I did see on the reciepts that impresed me...it'* had synthetic oil for most of it'* life...Thanks for the tips so far...

Yes. In and out on drivers' side, out on pass side. You'll be calling people to come over and listen to it.
