You can try "Sunflowers & Sunshine", or "Spring Renewal"...I'm partial to "Glistening Alpine" this time of year, myself. That's more of an interior thing though.

If you're actually asking about the engine bay, you can always find a detailer or dealership that can steam clean it for you. really cleans things up nicely, and you can hang an air freshener or spritz some Frebreeze on the hood liner from there.

That would make it so fresh...and clean, clean.

Dude I ment freshening up the engine don't be a smartass man I'm just trying to look for some good advice

The wording of your question didn't imply that you were looking for a serious answer.

Perhaps you would like to be more specific.

Are you looking for Race-Inspired Cosmetic Enhancements or increased performance?

Lighten up I thought it was rather humerous.

Shouldn't you be working instead of dinking around on the net Shane?
I need that project on my desk[target]

And yes Josh, have a light heart please.

What is your budget?

That's the best place to start.

Welcome to the site.

Read the stickies to get a good idea of the parts available.

Personally, I'd just go with FI if you were looking for the best performance for the money. Lots of decent, used stuff available on the net.

Depending on mileage and budget; I'd do a basic tune-up (plugs, wires, etc) and actual dyno tuning. It will change the maps the ECU uses to run; and could "wake up" a few more ponies that Ford didn't think the average consumer would miss.

Mine never ran better than after the tune. The downside is the price. It's a hell of a lot cheaper than forced induction, especially if you're not gutting it and forging it, but the SCT3 will run right around $400; then you have to strap it down and let the pro set that thing up. It'll purr like a kitten and go a tad bit better than before; and you'll already have the tuner to make changes later. PLUS you can have two programs on the SCT3. I have a 87octane tune for fuel savings, and a 93octane tune that wrings every last bit of safe power out of the setup that's on the engine.

But it's your money; do what you feel with it!
