I joined a few months ago but have followed Crownvic.net for a while now. I am looking for any advice on mods/ upgrading my P73 Crown Victoria. I am going more for a hp gain than anything else. I have yet to get exhaust or much engine work. Mainly, I have rebuilt most of the car since purchasing it 5 years ago. Looking to get more hp and general beasty engine sound. Id like to go more muscle and power with this one. Its going to soon be my extra vehicle and meant to be a project. Thanks!

1999 Crown Victoria P73 (170k)
- Cold air intake
- Custom dash and console
- 20" U2 Rims
- (2) 12" Alpine Type R Subs with 2000w amp
- Now has 30% tint all around with windshield strip
- Hardwired Android Phone with GPS and Free WiFi
- Laptop with mount and OBD to PC Cable to run engine specs


REPLACED PARTS- New Suspension, Drivetrain, and pistons. New Paint, New hood, Needs interior. Bought underdrive pullies and exhaust but havent put them on.

Horsepower is nice. but Torque is what is needed to get these land barges to move. and I say land barges affectionately.

Greetings from a fellow Wilmington guy! If you are looking for more power, go for what I want: heads, cams, and long tubes. You'll also need a new intake manifold, due to the NPI unit being garbage. With a tune, that will run you a good week of work and $2500. Or you could go for new gears and the tune. We could meet sometime, and I can show you what you could expect for about 2k in work. Check out the modular high performance section for some ideas!
