Well, my Focus is a Sedan, compared to your SVT (also, mine is an automatic). I wonder if I'll still notice as much a difference as you did?

No Turbo or manifold, but I will be adding a CAI, Cat-Back Exhaust, and header. Will this specifically allow the TB to gain HP? I know my mods will gain me some HP overall, but I'm wondering if the TB will add to it? If not, I'd still be up for the excellent throttle response and better get up and go.

As my car is now (stock) it's an absolute brick.
