^^beat me to it!! Of course that could be a con or a pro lol all depends on how you look at it. personally I would just leave it stock since there is no "real" gain with it. But if I did have money to spend I would probably do it just to have a that nice lopey idle lol all depends on how you look at it.

Just sounds like a car with beefy cams. You never heard it before? The VCT is eliminated on my car. Nothing is really changed. It's easier for Tom to do tuning.

As far as the idle, yeah it used to be REALLY lopey but not so much anymore. Tom did some changes to the tune I believe and the idle is only slightly lopey. It's hardly noticeable now. I used to get weird looks on the street from people who don't know cars when I had the lopey idle...like something was wrong with my car. LOL

Don't get rid of it unless something is wrong with it.

nope. I've heard plenty of bump sticks in other cars, but never in an svtf.
