I'm Not an svt but I've beat more of these things than i can count, street track whatever. If the things were chipped i'm sure it'd be a different story, but stock they are just lacking something... The only modded one i raced kept pretty close he was like a car back till 4th when i let off. The DSG ones are definately faster than the manual ones though.
FORD RACING STAGE 3'S because whats the point of a tach that goes to 7000 if the car doesn't make power that high?
