_Auricom_ Ingalls has their Dampener available to us SVT guyz to ... guyz!

I highly recommend this as it will will reduce the shock to the other stock mounts considerabley.

JCH841 That's the bottom engine mount on the driver's side that resists engine torque. A stiffer (poly) mount can appear to increase response because you're not wasting power rocking the engine.

GBPackFan I have a 67mm tb, AEM CAI, ORP, SCT, a Steeda Tri-Ax Short shifter, and a dog bone mount. This is probably as far as I can go with regards to being naturally aspirated, and I love it. I might upgrade my clutch a stage 1 or 2 and an alum flywheel the next time I need to change my clutch, but I don't have any plans for any upgrades right now. My car feels quick, and is faster than most Hondas around here. I might go turbo one day, but not right now.

6speeder k&n typhoon intake and the CFM ORP are awesome easy bolt on's to get 10-15 more whp. if you ask me there is still quite a few extra horses to be squeezed before going to fi of nitrous. another somewhat simpler option would be adjustable cam gears to advance the timing a bit. possibly a bit more aggressive cams (although the SVT's are pretty good as is). i'm not a fan of underdrive pulleys because i like my music real loud but that's just me.

...although ya gotta love a boosted SVT! wish i had the know-how and budget to boost mine :/

RevLimit A well kept suspension and brake system will provided more driving pleasure than a few extra hp would. If you want more power you have to get boosted.

..:: sleestak ::.. As mentioned above, bolt one are not going to do alot in the power adder arena, however they are more like "drive ability" upgrades.

The throttle body will make you throttle more responsive and that is kinda nice.

Pulleys are an on going debate but I bought a used ford racing/esslinger under drive pulley and did notice a difference. I am not one to say a sticker added horsepower or what-have-you. But when I out on that pulley there was a subtle change, like I had been driving with the AC on and finally turned it off.

Overall, if you want a noticeable gain, boost it or hit it with some nitrous....or both if you feel adventurous :)

Jaketet I ran my air tube to the bottom grille so I could fit a larger scoop for more fresh/cooler air. Doesn't add any noticeable power, only lowers intake temps.
