I dunno tom is going to have some competition in a few months...
http://www.xiosmotorworks.com/

this was what they told me the kit would include.
the kit will include a large front mount intercooler, a Garrett GT-28RS dual ballistic ball bearing turbo and the choice of a “log style” or a tuned equal length turbo manifold. Also included will be larger injectors, a larger maf housing and software.

well debut in a couple of months

the good thing about toms turbos is that you KNOW its gonna be done right, cuz he makes the kits, and he installs the kits

Turbo Tom, should I say more?

If you want a turbo get it from him. Take it from me. I didn't and I wish I had!!!

I already have a custom set up with the GT28RS and the Tubular manifold... Toms Full kit will make more torque than mine....period.

I wish I had just went with his kit.

As for the "large" intercooler..... you really cant put a big one on the SVT.... just not enough room under the bumper.
