Re: is it worth it

It has an electric fan already. You may want to have a tune done on it and possibly add a little more gear to make it feel snappy. If it has 3.23s put some 3.73s in it.

Re: is it worth it

there are mods for the v6 motors, but like was said before, it already has an electric fan, and a tb spacer wont do anything. you could put headers on it. i dont know if anybody makes lts for it, but i think some companies make shorties. i think some companies make cams for them too

A site specifically for the 60-degree V6 family of engines:

60DegreeV6.com

Source for performance parts:

WOT-Tech

You aren't going to get anything out of a throttle body spacer, and will end up with throttle cable issues.
