My tune does many things
better idle
better take off
better mid range and over all daily drivability
better performance under wide open throttle
Helps cure the mid range stumble a lot of SVT have

Best mods for the SVT is
Tune
Drop in filter
ORP
TB
3 inch exh

hey Tom is a drop in Filter better than a Typhoon. I imagine it is a heat issue if so. I was also wondering if the ORP is also a 3 inch.? and what type of cat, Resonator and or muffler you recommend.
I don't mind spending the cash on the proper parts but don't wanna buy things I will later remove.
If staying N/A is there a need or benefit to bigger injectors? Thanx again for your tech help.

No need for larger Inj for the mods were talking about
I would do a 3 inch from the header back and use a high flow cat
If you have the typhoon then use it if not I would do the drop in

Hi Tom, do you only sell the xcal3 or could I get a different sct tuner from you as well?

What is the benefit of going to a 3 inch exhaust? I thought the stock SVT exhaust was pretty well performance tuned. Will 3 inch give enough back pressure on a DD?
