We've found out the TPS sensor and the IAC valve from the SVT are optional, the non SVT stuff will work fine.......good right just get some steep cams in there to take advantage of the intake.........

I've got EVRYTHING to do this except the SVT T/B and elbow, SVT Alternator bracket, and the RPM switch, I need to get the other parts !! Thanks for this write up guys GREAT JOB !
why do we need the SVT Alternator bracket ? (Clearence?)
And How do I obtain a pigtail for my IMRC ? Can I get thatr from ford, or do I have to cut up an SVT And on tuning, who can do the tune ? Does it cause a too lean condition without a tune ? Sorry for all the q's but I need to know !

Thanks !

You know... That guy.

the computer ought to be able to adjust for the airflow although a tune would certainly improve things. the real trick is finding out where to set the DSI switchover, you will need a dyno for this
