Angry 30-40hp???

I emailed focus central last night asking about the parts catalog... I also slipped in the fact I was hoping to gain 30-40HP and curious of what the best starting point on the SVT would be... They replied that it probably wasnt possible to gain that kind of power w/o supercharger????? Are they serious?? If they are, do they know what they are talking about?? Could i unload like 3,000(w/o supercharger) on this car and not gain 30HP??

Sadly enough it is quite true.....With just bolt-ons your are going to gain but not a whole 40 HP........Vortech or Tom's Kit would be your best bet.......

Peace.....

you won't get 30-40whp as of this time, if u wait for cams/head...u will easily make the power you are searching for, you could go for 20whp though

no aftermarket manifolds are available, cam pulley is part of the udp set, no chip....but basically all the bolt ons is alright...but i think for the cash spent there, save some more and go with the JRSC... give you the 230hp or so you would like.

ORP=200
CAI=250
Cat-back=400
TB=290
pulleys=130
flywheel=400

or...3100 for the jrsc

Well, rumors are rumors, but the current one is that FS head and cams with those bolt-ons will give in the range of 180 whp, maybe more. It all depends on how their cams turn out. If that is true, you are looking at about 200 hp at the crank, which isn't bad. Now, let's wait and see what happens.

I have heard that the FR200 intake manifold is a direct bolt on for our cars and showed decent gains up top...but I don't know if that's true or not. If it is, sure would be nice to be rid of the DSI... But I'm too broke and too big a sissy to throw caution to the wind and try it, though.

You guys should check out www.kookscustomheaders.com and see if they can custom build you something. It's expensive, probably $2500 all in all. But that's good for almost 50 horses and 33lb-ft of torque on a Marauder. I figure some underdrive pullyes are good for 15 or 20 horses eh? New spark plugs ( www.densoiridium.com/index.php?flash=1 ) too and with that get a K&N, an SCT or chip for the computer (big help, made my car something completely different, it goes like it's always 30 or 40º), and a new torque converter. Different gears in the rear too (3.55 maybe?).

Then you can think about some superchargin'.

Kenne there is good with lots of power on small applications (i.e. the Miata).
