Tune in my opinion is one of the best mods for the SVT

Let me know if your interested in a tune

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

Getting it tuned should be the first mod for any SVT owner, contact Tom (1turbofocus). Also, his three recommendations for performance are tune, ORP, and 67mm throttle body.

these seem like more suggestions than just a tune

Hey captain, before you go insulting people for making a comment, maybe you should go read the forum rules(ya know, the ones you agreed to when you joined this forum?), specifically the section labeled "respect". It'll take you far around here.

As for suggestions for your car, I suggest you sit down and figure out a realistic budget for your car, then go out and price the things people have mentioned and see if they fit said budget. If they do, then go and spend you some money. If not, be happy you don't own a base model focus with no mods, and start saving like the rest of us.
