First mods

Just got a 03 SVT and was wondering what types of mods I should do. The only parts that I got so far are a K&N drop in air filter and a set of 9mm Ford Racing wires.

that list is okay except for the coil pack!!! just gap a pair of fresh plugs as wide as you can without getting misfires.

Check to make sure all your OEM parts are in order first. Mine had a list that needed to be fixed long before I could break into the modifications. The SVT has some quality control issues.

Instead of CAI, do a Short RAM intake. A tune is probably one of the most gainful mods.

Talk to Tom (1TurboFocus). He has an awesome Predator tune for our cars.
