Contact Tom, his username is 1turbofocus. He probably knows more about tuning the SVT than any other person on the planet. He charges around $400 for the tune, a handheld tuner (SCT), and offers unlimited free updates for any NA mods you do. If you have a laptop, he can remote connect to it and do in-car datalogging with you. The tune is very beneficial, even on a stock SVT. The factory tune is surprisingly bad on these cars.
