What should be my next step?

Hello everybody, i'm fairly new at performance tuning. I have an 04' SVT that I have added a Magnaflow Catback System, AEM Cold Air Intake, Focus Central Throttle Body, High Pefor Plugs, and MSG Wires & Coil. Not ready to boost or supercharge it yet due to $ right now, but will for sure in the future. I wanted to know what steps I could take next and if I added Nitrous how bad is it on my engine?

Get a tune from Tom (1turbofocus) on here before moving forward. Just so you know, the MSD coil pack is garbage. Been proven in datalogs.

i'd say, since its an svt, just save for boost, not worth spending 1k on 20 whp when you can spend 2k on gaining 120 whp or so!

Not quite. JRSC does not add 120. Base hp out of *most* SVTs is 145. What does the BBK give you? 220 with full exhaust and all that. Last time I checked, that's a 75whp increase....your number is way inflated.

Not even the PWSC adds 120. Out of the box it puts down 250whp. That's a 105 increase. That kit, if you can find it, is more than $2k, even used, unless the seller is feeling generous.

A tune will help your list of mods , I charge 395.00 shipped for the Predator and that comes with a custom tune and free updates

N2O it or not?

Who has added a nitrois system to their focus and what size? What I want to know is how bad and how hard it is on the engine. Who would recommend it and who wouldnt and why?
