Have you looked anywhere on this site? There are lots of threads about this subject.

-Tune
-SVT header
-exhaust
-intake


After you're done with bolt-ons, you'll have to tear into the engine and change some of the internals.

Adjustable cam gears need to be dyno tuned in order to gain any benefit from them.




To the OP, HERE is a list of the sticky threads for the Zetec performance section. I highly recommend reading through some of them, it has all the info your asking about in them.

Don't need a shop for a tune. Talk to Tom (1turbofocus) he will set you up with a tune and walk you through every step of the way! I have his tune and love it
