Everyone always asks this question but doesn't give us info money is the biggest determining factor if money doesn't matter then Tom's Turbo Kit is the best you can get www.focus-power.com although its very expensive if you don't have enough for a Turbo set up then get a Vortech Supercharger www.vortechsuperchargers.com its really a personal decision many people get the Vortech cause its cheaper and thought to be an easier set up but if you really want power then go for Tom's Turbo it not only produces massive hp numbers but also massive torque numbers its really a personal decision Tell us more info is this gonna be a daily driver? Track Car? How much money?? there are alot of determining factors give us some info

It is a daily driver, and I dont wanna have too much power that i cant control it, but enuff that when a ricer pulls up to me, I stomp his ass lol, and about 3 grand tops
but I still want the car to be able to run a long time and run reliable, i mean it is a ford, and i know it will.

JRSC for the SVTF is $ 2515, throw a custom tune on it and you will be right at $ 3000.

Toms kit, sorry but if $ 3000 is the limit no point in showing you toms kit.

I'd get a Vortech from Tom so you're pretty much guaranteed quality service, a complete kit with proper tuning, and from what I've seen, he's pretty reliable about helping if you need him later....you just have to post a thread to get him to check his PM sometimes, but it's all good!

Or talk with tom about what you'd need on top of a kit from Vortech's website....maybe nothing.

You'll need more than $3000 though...maybe $5000 - $7000...when I get mine, I'm planning on bringing 7 to the table so I can afford an install/dyno tune. (although, I'll do some of the installation myself like mounting brackets, etc....well, I could probably do it all, but if something goes wrong, you'll want a receipt showing a certified mechanic installed it for your warranty)
