    as far as I know other than the 15 or so extra hp the factory says the ws6 has the only differance is a ram air hood polished rims a stainless exhaust the badging ofcourse and a better tuned suspension....but I don't own a ws6 so I might be wrong with some of that.

    it works out well I love the look I have a 95 mustang also lowered with new wheels and exhaust but the ta blows it away

    Thats not a bad idea but depending on how much you can find one for I'd say their are probably less expensive things you can do. What I mean is for the price which I've found to be around 400 for a good new aftermarket maf you are not going to get that much more power for your buck. have you done exhaust? full is the way to go but a cat back would do really good as well.
    Also i've been looking at cams lately and for about the price of a good maf you can get some kick ass power and responce with the right cam set up and depending on which one you get you don't need any other mods to install it.

    Be sure to research as much as you can. I am attending school for auto tech right now so I've learned some cool stuff but I'm no master performance guy by any means.

    I've heard so many reasons why some of these cars burn oil but what I've learned is it could be a worn valve guide but thats not the only possibilty. Have it checked for sure you deff don't need to be spending money like that or loseing oil like that.

    I think the reason you don't see any is because of clearance reasons.

    your maf can handel up too about 500hp and after that you might as well go with a speed density tune...dont waist your money on a maf your going to be sorry...spend the money else where like a intake..or headers ect

    Yep, the ones I've seen end up getting in the way of driveshaft loops torque arms and are speed bump scrapers.
