    tune a taurus?

    I noticed a huge difference in gas milage and performance when my ws.666 was tuned-so is it possible to tune a POS 99 Taurus (3.0 v6) and get better gas milage etc? Who would do that and would it cost as much as my trans am did?

    Lately i've noticed the car just sucks on gas terribly, probably 22mpg hway at best, i bet like 3 on the street.

    I'm sure there's a couple tuner shops in cincy that'll be able to tune the taurus for you. Has the fuel filter been changed in the past couple years. You may want to run some cleaner through the fuel tank and sea foam it throught the intake.

    If its Slugish, you are using more fuel pushing the throttle down further to make it move!

    Good point. I was thinking more along the lines of power rather than fuel filter.
