im not 100% sure.....however he does offer free updates I believe. So if you got a tune from him now, everytime you add something to your car he will send you a new tune.

Even on a stock SVT the tune on those cars does help , If you had a ZX3 then I would say no not yet

Don't believe Tom, believe his customers...like me! ;) Out-of-the-box stock SVTs are MUCH nicer to drive in all conditions with a good tune like Tom offers. If you have 93 octane gas available then all the better...he can make a tune for that too. I've got it and have nothing but praise for the difference in driveability and smooth, linear power delivery compared to the Ford factory tuning.

EDIT: I should have added that I went from stock with Tom's 93 octane tune to K&N intake, Borla and CFM HFC. Tom sent me a free update to make best use of the exhaust and intake upgrades, and the improvement was quite noticeable.
