    Motor swap = LS with turbo, b16, or k20.
    Rid of the muffler and do a header>high flow cat> then cat back
    if its automatic...switch to a manual
    That should get you started...lets us know when you're done :D :D

    A short ram intake and a $25 muffler from E-Bay on a D15 isn't going to get you anywhere. What's your budget here? Tell us how much you can spend and we'll tell you what you can reasonably do...

    If you're going to be this vague about it, then we really can't help you. You need to give us a goal or a budget or a plan of some kind.

    Examples would be:

    "I want to make X amount of power"

    "I want to run a quarter mile in X seconds"

    "I want to swap my engine/keep the same engine/install turbo/etc."

    "I want to spend $5,000 total on this project."

    No one's going to help you if all you're going to give us is "Give me a list of parts to make my car go fast please!"...

    Beat it how? Beat it off the line from a stop light? Beat it in a quarter mile? I really don't know how "fast" a V6 95 Mustang is, so once again, I really can't answer your question. You didn't tell us if his car is stock or modified either. This is why I said to be more specific (i.e. how much power, how fast in the quarter mile, etc.).

    There are plenty of ways to go about this. You could swap your engine out or put a turbo on it. The turbo setup would probably end up being quicker, but you're going to have to sink some money into it to make it somewhat reliable.

    Which brings me back to my original question: what's your budget. Can you afford to drop 2-3 grand into a motor swap or turbo kit? Because that's about what it's going to take...

    Wow, I just looked up some info on those Mustangs and they are slow as shit! I found two sources that said 17.3 for a quarter mile, and on the same page listed 17 seconds for quarter mile for an EX Civic sedan from 92-95. Honestly, you might be able to beat her as is. If not, then just the Mini Me swap and intake/header/exhaust would probably do it. I wouldn't even mess with internals...

    It depends on whether you want to go turbo or not. If you want to go turbo, then you build the engine differently then you would if you want to stay non-turbo...
