I'm currently 18, to the statement above about 2.5" isn't an improvement, of coarse it's not, it comes stock with 2.5" exhaust. I checked when I cut mine last year while installing Borla catback. 3" exhaust on N/A?? no gains, we're talking a half to 3 hp, sorry but for a DD you cannot tell that kind of gain. You can even get away with a 2.5" exhaust for a turbo setup. To the original post, my view on the SVT is 8 out of 10. IMO Ford could have done more with it, like stock turbo (; but hey it is what it is right? Overall it's a great car and very dependable as long as you and previous owners treat(ed) right.
