Why are you deleting the VCT?? That is the best part of the SVT motor?
You are loosing low end torque, top end power and fuel economy!!
All new cars have variable intake and exhaust cam timing. At least the SVT has the most important for power and you are taking it off??
You are giving up a great deal of performance!!
The link shows a NA increase in torque (load) due to cam timing. With forced induction,
there are many more possibilities with VCT. ...just saying...

lol all you want. I have many years of calibration experience on many production vehicles, including the ST with the VCT system. There is no 1 cam position that will give you the drivability of a variable cam throughout the operating range. I have the VCT on my SVT tuned very well and it works great. There is no viable reason to delete it unless you are running a non-Ford PCM.
