Svt tuning

So my first svt, an 03 with 93k on it. Now I have been playing with race prepped 2.3 2.0 and the new 2.0 in a 14 focus. All have been exclusively tuned by Tom. So letís do the svt. First run on the dyno, 142hp, 129 tq. A few adjustments to correct a fuel issue, way to lean and Toms magic, up a little and a data logging issue. He found a way around the data logging and the download encountered a loading issue. So he had us pull a specific two fuses and it worked. The final pull had us a 150hp and 139 tq but no vct spike at 6k, just fat tq all the way and hp increase pulling to 7k with a/f now at a safe 13 at wot.
THANK YOU TOM. Canít wait to drive it but itís just raining here so hopefully dry in the am.

Just looking at the before and after dyno plots the tq went up across the entire rpm range over 10 ft lbs from 2k thru 7k. The vct spike has all been eliminated which while fun driving it waiting to hit the magic rpm I think I will like the fatter bigger tq across the board. Remember I have been racing a 2.3 and a very modified 2.0 duratec all built and tuned by Tom. The 2.3 has serious tq numbers and the 2.0 has big horsepower and a little less tq, but we geared the mtx75 to work with this.

Ok, Tom cleaned up the a/f with more input to the fuel tables. The car comes off the dyno and the weather is great. So out for a test drive. Set of the pants, it feels great. The dyno says it more powerful. So I take my normal route and this car is a blast. It pulls like a freight train from 2-7k in any gear. The car has wonderful tq low and has wonderful feel through out the rev band. Tom your tune is killer, if you own a stock svt you have no idea what it could be, just get Tom to tune your car.
