Talking New SVT

Well guys, I just traded in my 2000 SE for a 2003 SVT. I will upload some pics when I take them. You can see below what mods i had on my old car.

Couple questions?

1. My old car had more [:)][:)][:)][:)][:)] on the lower RPM range (1500-3000). What mods should I do to get this one there? Cat-Back and Intake?

2. To make this easier. Gimme a list of SVT Aftermarket parts I should check out.

Thanks

I don't think a cat-back or intake is going to help with lower rpms. The UDP probably will very little. The best thing to do for lower rpms is a supercharger.

I have same experience with mine. It's my theory it has something to do with the twin-plate clutch not grabbing right away. I also have traction control which can really get in the way.

My solution is to turn off trac control and drop the clutch at 2500 rpm...it goes then

13500 new?

That's a great price.

I didn't want all the extra stuff my car has. But I didn't want to wait to get the car either.

So I took my loaded Silver one right off the transporter!

I've got 11,000 mi on it in 10 weeks!!!
