    alright im not the smartest guy when it comes to cars but i have a 3.8L V6 2001 mustang and i was thinking about putting a supercharger or a twin turbo in it, is any of that possible? Do they make supercharger kits for a V6 mustang? Would a twin turbo be easier to maintain? Is it cheaper than buying a better engine? What should i do???? :dunno: (buying a new car isnt an option just got this one)

    i heard a clip from this forum of a blown stroked 3.8, sounded absolutely badass for a 6, anyone remember it, it was green.

    I have a friend with a 3.8 stang. With boltons and heads and cam he made 200hp at the wheels. He now has it supercharged and is making ~300 at teh rear wheels.

    Id say go with boltons first to maximize the effect of the supercharger.

    Try asking at www.stangnet.com or www.corral.net

    Theres plenty of experienced people there who can help you out.
