Off road pipe. Deletes your catalytic converter. If you don't mind the smell of exhaust and added noise, it adds about 7whp, which is a nice bump in power.

When you get bored with your SVT, find a quiet, empty road with lots of sharp corners, and attack it. I guarantee that when youre done blitzing the road, youll take a deep breath, smile and say "man, I LOVE this car". I do it all the time. LOL

get suspension.
tune and orp or high flow cat.
wires and plugs (gapped) and you will love it.
also if you want throttle response get 67mm cfm tb.

i get bored of my svt sometimes and want to fray but i then remember i have a pwsc kit sitting in my room. haha
and 3k in body parts.

a svt is a really clean hatch and its not something you see tons of.

The SVT is great ... and like LongDucDong stated ... find some twisties in your area and enjoy the ride.

SVT is a great twisty fighter ride, can hang with some of the best in it's stock setup.

As for more mods for happy smiles ... yeah, I also say Tune 1st, ORP (Off-road Pipe) or HFC (High Flo Cat) then suspension.

The Rest are there for better sound and driveability.

Enjoy the SVT and don't give up on what you have ... it gets better.

A cheaper forced induction route would be to get a JSRC with BBK (Jackson Racing Supercharger with the Big Boost Kit) not big power compared to other kits but definitely an upgrade from stock. Or you could always trade cars with me...Id love an orange EAP haha

I kinda got bored with mine after a few years. it all depends on what you want to spend. I chose to turbo mine and let me tell you it gets expensive. lol. I am still working on tuning with Tom, but so far i love it. but if your on a budget, put exhaust, a drop in air filter, some BFG KDW tires and get a tune from Tom. then rip through some mountain roads.
