Has anyone seen a SVT with the Ford Racing (Borla) center-exit exhaust system in person??? Here's what I'm talking about:





What do you think of this option?

Yeah, I'm thinking so too. I do like that it's not what everyone has, but it just doesn't look right... I wonder if the oval tip was replaced by a dual round tip how it would look... Someone have Photoshop???

Also, I'm going back and forth on my Roush bumpers. If I do decide to put those on the SVT, I think I'd need to stay with the regular single tip on the left because the bumper is cut out for it...

I put a Progress 22mm rear sway bar and the dog bone treatment. that's about it.

Cheers!
I found someone selling a Saleen 22mm front / 25mm rear combo. Would that tighten things up?

^^ yes it would. SVT's come from the factory with a swar bar package. but i believe the saleen's came with better suspension all the way around.
