Tune, short throw, dogbone. Makes car better and more fun to drive with just those.

For minimal gains you can get a HFC or an ORP.

Exhaust will only get you sound. Exhaust with an ORP will be louder and a bit raspier than with a HFC

An intake (short ram intake, cold air intake) like the exhaust, is only a noise and aesthetic modification. Dyno results have shown equal gains with just a K&N panel filter in the stock intake housing.

Supercharger will net you 220+ whp and cost in the neighborhood of $1500-$3000.

Turbo setup can yield much higher gains, but at the cost of time and money, likely around $3000-$5000.

Getting it tuned should be the first mod for any SVT owner, contact Tom (1turbofocus). Also, his three recommendations for performance are tune, ORP, and 67mm throttle body.

What's the size of a factory throttle body on a svtf ?

jwill2489 10-30-2012 09:10 PM

65 I believe. A 67 will only make throttle response feel better. No gains

kennysvt 10-30-2012 09:33 PM

Ok well hell what about a tune they were talking about?

_Auricom_ 10-31-2012 07:08 PM

I thought the stock size on our TB's were 63mm?
<---someone correct this noob

jwill2489 10-31-2012 07:09 PM

They could be, I never looked into it. My buddy out a 67mm on his turbo svt and said he felt no difference. So I'm not getting one then

Ok my svtf is not boosted or anything would a air/fuel gauge be stupid?
