Newbie looking for upgrades

Well im a newbie to the SVT focus just got it like 4 days ago, and im just looking to gain a few more ponies outta it and maybe some spray. How big of a shot can a stock SVT handle? does neone make a tune for nitrous? Im so used to driving at least 13 second daily drivers that now i hope in the focus and its like it doesnt move to me. So what do u guys rec for first mods and are there any free mods i can do? Thanks.

no intake!!! just get the highflow cat and tune for now. so that way when you go super or turbocharged in the future you dont have to sell you shiny new aftermarket intake

Well I was planning on fabbing up my own intake as I have access to bend aluminum pipe so thats not an issue really on price or wasted money. And as much fun as it would be to boost this motor, im just going to spray a 75 wet shot.

try this then. hold off on the tune for a little bit.
get a fc 65mm tb
get order a 3" maf adapter and predator+tune from tom (that'll reflect the new MAF)
go with all 3" intake piping drawing in air from anywhere outside the engine pay.
ITG Cone will work the best with your new custom intake.
