Im kinda in the same boat right now. Just got my svt and planning to start modding this summer after I start working. I think im going with a sct xcal 3 first. Get rid of the poor stock tune. I next plan to go stage 3 southbend and exhaust this summer. Got to pay the parents back to for the car but should have all this. Then next summer I plan on a custom turbo build. Do you guys think I should go clutch and exhaust first or turbo on low boost till I can afford a clutch first?

get a tune first. probably the most basic and enjoyable mod to the SVT.
but if you lost your job and just got a new one.. imo, first you should save money just incase it happens again (knocking on wood for ya) then start modding!
