So I'm happy to come across this.. I have recently decided to turn my SVT into a track car. I'm planning to start my SCCA track certification in the next month i hope.

What did you have to do to get this past 400HP internally? I'm planning to rip out my supercharger and go turbo over the next few months. but it was my understanding the SVT could only handle 300HP stock with a turbo. but i was wanting to get 350-400HP out of my engine. and if possible.. id like to keep the stock ECU and tune with Xcal3. but any advice from someone that knows what there doing would be greatly appreciated!

forged pistons and rods with all arp fasteners and your motor should hold around 700hp. no real need to do any aftermarket work on the head. you will need a clutch to hold the power and a fuel system to feed it. with a boost a pump and stock fuel tank and pump you should be able to get around 350-380 if memory serves. if you want more than that you need a return style fuel system.

you can keep the stock ecu and tune with an xcal3. on occasion people will have bad luck with the xcal3 with svts. you might need to locate an xcal2 or diablosport predator to do the tuning with.

the list of things you need to get to that power level is long and expensive. if you're sure that its what you want we can probably provide you with the information that you need to get you there. actually i can probably do that all on my own since i spent the last several months researching it myself on how to do it as cheap as possible while still using new components mostly.

wow so all the engine needs is Forged pistons, rods, and better fasteners for 700HP? that's amazingly less then i expected...

so 380HP max with just those three items and fuel injectors and your basics? then to surpass 380 i have to start messing with the fuel system?

i guess to start. what would i need, and what would it cost to make 380HP?

and can you link me to a Engine rebuild? i cant find one. maybe no ones done a step by step or taken any photos when tearing there's apart.. if so ill have to get a good set of pictures when pulling mine apart for future drivers wanting to know what they are getting into.. I'm hoping i can pull the engine and replace the rods, pistons, and fasteners in a few weeks time. i work full time but i have weekends off. my dads got a good shop for me to do the work in. and luckily hes far more experienced then my self lol

flip through my thread. i learned ALOT about forced induction over the last few months and pretty much everything i learned is in this thread. i know its long and i ramble alot but it has everything in it except for engine build pics. if you ask tim (turboturtle) nicely maybe some will appear in the next few weeks when my engine build starts.
