i have just bought a 2003 svt and got 125 Kw of power. And it's not enough for me. I need an advise of how to increase power without adding turbo and chip for more than 30 Kw? Is it even possible? How much would it cost? I don't have a lot of money for this. I am totally new at this so any advise would be helpful.

what the hell is a Kw of power?? Kilo Watt??

For anyone about to read this and is confused, multiply kW by about 1.34 to get it into Hp.
To the OP, wow its great that you were able to get an SVT over there! As for upgrades? I'm sure the hot ticket will be a K/n drop in filter. You are also going to get answers like... the svt is about as good as you can get without going Turbo.... or look in the buy sell trade section for used JRSC super chargers. etc etc etc. Oh almost forgot, get a tune!!! It helps it shift better and give it a much more solid feel and what not, just wont increase your kW much.
You have a very nice car, hope you enjoy it. Im sure more people are going to weigh in.

yeah its kilowatt, 1kw is equal to 1.341 hp, so he has approx 167 hp.
To add 30 kw of power or approx 40 hp, is probably not achievable with the SVT, the SVT is a pegged out zetec motor, meaning everything that could be done NA has already been done to the zetec by the special vehical team. It will be much more cost effective to go FI, not to mention easily put you at your goal, you can add some KW to your car NA but probably not 30kw.
