New blown svt ??

Just received my new issue of muscle mustangs and fast fords and there is a spy picture from dearborn of two factory svt sporting lifted hoods with innercoolers ( forgot to bring the mag to work to give you the page number). The quick blurb said there were three of them, one was sporting a full cage ( test mule? ). They felt that they may have been blown.
I feel a relationship between the vortech coming out, the fact that steeda can redo the computer to factory standards and the fact that the cars seen in dearborn had innercoolers ( that rules out the jrsc, which was my first guess ) a pretty good guess as to what may be under the hood. Stay tuned.

Please give me an ATX. All these awesome cars are only made with an MTX. I guess I would just have to have a relly nice built tranny.

apparently the svt itself wasn't doing as well as planned, so they had thought more and more about bringing the RS over here, or at least a form of it, as the "next" svt. guess we'll have to wait and see.

Lets just hope Ford will step up to the plate. So far we are very far behind the competition in terms of engine performance.

i would def buy a 22k ford focus sedan with 220 (or more) hp...
just a srt4 and all import beater...
but the focus RS is an expensive beast...30k in europe...that would be almost the same here...
and thats too much for a HB....it would be the same fate that awaits the new GTI with 200+ hp...
my .02 c !

If they keep the SVTF's price as is and turbocharge it, we can finally compete with that damn NEON, yes it's just a NEON!

If this rumor is true then that will be my next car, screw the WRX.

These guys new about the marauder, the blown cobra, and the shaker hood mach 1 before they came out, so there is a good chance they are right on this one !!....I hope so, especially if it is close to srt-4 in price that would be awesome,
