tukaniSVT Top Speed actually makes an SVT Manifold that, from their dyno charts, makes more power than the stock one. But I haven't heard of anyone on here buying the manifold and getting a users confirmation of that. It is a bit pricey for a part, but again, if it works. It could be worth it.

I for one will not try it because it will change my class in AutoX. But it does intrigue me.

Stock SVT manifold would be your best bet in my opinion. Its better than the OBX. But, if you cant find one and you need one ASAP, I would use the OBX one until you can find a SVT one.

thenorm the car is already nice and wont get much more power.

personally i would stikc with cosmetic stuff like tint, and suspension and tires.

DanCamSVT Thank you fellows , I will definitely work my way up to make this car as nice as possible.
One thing that I do have to change is the clutch. Leaning towards a stage one clutch but not too familiar with the brands. Also, I've heard the rear motor mount by the firewall is not the best for he stock svt. Any suggestions on brands etc. ? Thank you

1turbofocus I have to agree and in the order he did the mods in is what I would also do but I would do the TB about the time of the ORP or HFC

tukaniSVT Well since it is a much older ride now, parts are too expensive either.

The SVT is quite maxed out already ... but if you want better driveability and a bit more umph within the RPM range.

You should look into a Tune, HFC (High Flow Cat), CAI (Cold Air Intake), Short Throw Shifter, Poly Mounts (If you don't mind a bit of shake during idle), Some good suspension for better turning (of course the SVT is quite good stock in the turn ability) and maybe a TB (Throttle Body).

Without going FI (Forced Induction) you won't gain much but about 10-15 HP overall. But again, these mods are for more drivability and will change the way the car feels throughout the RPM range.
