Default 3.0 Engines

Ive heard that there isn't much you can do performance wise to the 3.0 v6's. i don't know if that's true or not. Does anyone know what you can do to supe one up, or just mods?

Ive done nothing to the engine except for a K&N Air filter. Ive got LED Tail lights. I took the rear fold down seats out and put in 2 MTX Thunder 4000 12s and a 525w SPL competition amp. Ive got a Flip out Alpine Head unit in it, also ive put in a C.B. radio. Its got as of rite now 123,000 miles on it.

well you can get a performance tune. other than that you can try blowing it up with nitrous. i think tom morana stopped making 3.0 performance.

I moved your thread to the 3.0 section... look around there for some ideas.
