Go to 3.8mustang.com, v6power.net, and/or supersixmotorsports.com They are a v-6 champions and the principals of mods apply to pretty much all v6's the same, except fo rthe assholes who tell you to buy a 4.2l. The 2.9 is pretty much in a world of its own but im sure there are a few people there who are pulling power out of them.

Usually I go on an extended rant about how useless that book is--but with a 2.8, it is useful.

I sold mine on EBay several years ago and it went for about $100.

That guy looks pretty young to be the Sven Pruett that wrote that book.
