1995 thunderbird LX 4.6

Hi,I'm new here i was wondering if anyone knows of any cheap mods on this engine. I have put a K&N filter in,also a homemade ram air,Bosch platinum2 plugs,Valvoline synthetic oil,Pennzoil synthetic trans.fluid,and dual raptor mufflers,I plan on putting synthetic fluid in rear axle also and removing resonator on exhaust,and replacing with straight pipe.I think I have hit all the cheap modifications but maybe there is more.Any suggestions would really be appreciated. Thank you,Electric Blue

Hi there. My girlfriend has a 1997 cougar XR7(same platform) with the 4.6L. Unfortunately there is not a huge aftermarket for the non-mustang 4.6L. About the cheapest thing you can do is dump the factory cats & plumb in your own high flo's to free up the exhaust.

I'm surprised yours has a resonator, our cougar doesn't.

You've done about everything that is cheap.

Next step would be a tuner & a swap to the PI heads which came on the 99-up 4.6L. Either a supercharger or NO2 would next.
