A good intake can give you a couple...cut the 15 you want down to 12 or so. Depends on the intake and the engine. I dont know anything about the chips either.

Right now im running the stock intake. Its hit or miss on those things. Some people get power and better milage and some get the oposite and go back to stock. Im looking at goin with an AEM CAI. Still doin the research tho.

You aren't going to get much from an intake at all. Drop a K&N in there and call it good. The SVT is pretty maxed out from the factory. Have you looked into getting an ORP? That and a tune from Tom should get you a few nice whp's.

An ORP (Offroad pipe) replaces the catalytic converter with a straight pipe, which deletes the cat. You can order one here:

And Tom (1turbofocus) does remote tuning with software. It costs a little over $400 if I remember correctly. You can make a thread here asking about it:

I'm sure if you have a K&N in your air filter and then add an ORP with a tune you should definitely notice an improvement. I would guess it would be around 10 whp to the wheels maybe more.
