Yeah the fuel guage drops pretty quickly too. The most common mods are flash tuning exhaust and fitting Typhoon air boxes.

If you wanna hear the turbo "wistle" more, that means you'll need a flash tune so it runs more boost. I just fitted a 4" dump pipe to the turbo and you can definitely hear the turbo spool harder (this mod NEEDS a custome tune to run without engine damage).

But if its just induction noise your after, fit an F6 air box along with a K&N air filter..

F6 airbox and K&N filter might set ya back around $250 nmax i think.

haha if you were to fit a 4" dump pipe then you'd probably end up doing all the mods in my signiture, but then your up for A few thousand, but you'll have around 300+ KW at the wheels!

Hi kaos12

I just sould my F6 Typhoon and now im hart broken.
Any way she had 305 rwk witch is more than anough power for the street.
This is what I had done to it.
Flash tune
Bigger waist gate
Up graded air filter
Bigger injectors 60 pound
I ran an Xforce 3.5" dump and exhaust
Up graded the velve springs the origonal ones wont last to long.
The exhaust sounded great and when the turbo hit boost sweeeeeeeet . I ran 16 psi of boost.
She took of like a rocket. I loved it the wife hated it .

If you want any one to vouch for it Mr.kiss knows what it sounded like .

Well it cost me just under $5500 to have it all done and tuned. Thats the good thing about the F6 's they dont need much to get good power out of them.
Im starting a Sheetmetal company and I need all the money I can get.
It wasnt an easy desition to make ,I felt like crying , when I actuly gave the car up (witch was yesterday) I nealy did she was my pride and joy I loved that car.
As my wife says once my company is up and running and making some money I could buy something eals ,
so im thinking Ford Mustang GT 500 .

now ive down graded and driving a second hand RTV already looking into getting more power out of it though
