Hate to break it to ya but even with a Vortech youll end up having to spend more than what toms kit cost to be able to hang with STI's and EVO's. With the vortech kit there is a slim chance that youll run with a stock EVO from a roll. And with either from a stop your dead. Its hard to match either of these cars without going turbo. And with the SVT's high compression youll need a new set of pistons if you wanna be making the kind of power to be right up there with an EVO or STI.
You know what they say about women and trolley cars.........there's plenty of em in the sea.
