mighty fine question. I believe because it's Tom's tune... it would be in the details that would make all the difference.

Dyno tune's are expensive, and according to Randy at FS, the SVT is a real PITA to tune, and you will end up paying a lot more since it will take a long time. My guess is Toms tune will work a lot better for NA applications, whereas if you go turbo or SC, I'de strongly recommend a dyno tune to work out ALL the kinks.

The SVT isnt bad at all to tune if you know how to tune it , If you only need a NA tune there realy isnt a need to come to the dyno, Try the Predator and see how you like it there will be a few HP that can be got with your car on the dyno but will it realy be worth the extra 350.00
