by my SVT Powerworks supercharger...

though, if you think a tune is too expensive, the blower might be a stretch....

It isn't a waste of money nor useless. Please don't say you know alot and listen to what you're saying. Granted it is something to do once you are finished with all the minor stuff and plan on boosting for the future but it isn't useless or stupid.... They will help tune your car more precisly, again not stupid.

People spend more money on a useless CAI for the SVT that just for sound then a wideband kit, which give you alot more useable information

For minimal gains you can get a HFC or an ORP.

Exhaust will only get you sound. Exhaust with an ORP will be louder and a bit raspier than with a HFC
I second this!
