Tune is the first thing. I'm not sure why people are saying TB? A ORP or HFC will give you actual gains, the stock SVT Manifold inlet is where the air is restricted all a 67mm TB will give you is better throttle feel, a Short Throw Shifter is nicer then a TB imho.....

Yeah your right, svt's have a hang rev's= hence a tb. The steeda STS is the best, has a plate that raises the shifter. A sri is a great upgrade.
