The answer to the question is "No"
A stock SVT has 30 more horsepower and doesn't run 14's.

Those bolt-on mods will net you less than 30whp for a grand total just shy of 150whp.

Weight reduction would be the biggest factor but I still don't see it happening. Low 15's maybe, if you slam the gears hard enough, or maybe skip breakfast that day.

Oh, it is also worth noting that since you have a 2008, your car will be inherently slower than 2009 and newer models due to a different final drive gear.

What other people think of me is none of my business.
