I keep fighting with myself on if I'm going to build my SVT or not, I love the car, but with the money I have in the build I could just buy a newer ST. An ST swap in an SVT though, that's awesome. Id pay to see an SVT with an RS engine and drivetrain...

That's a lot of hacking. No different that going RWD though I suppose.

The ecoboost motor is not more reliable. I drive am ST and I owned an SVT. If you have the money, build the SVT and just replace the intake manifold while doing so.

Too much work swapping. You would need to move everything around in the engine compartment, custom motor mounts, modified cross member, transmission, etc. You can make the same power for less with the svt block.

Gotta disagree. One custom motor mount which you can already buy, passenger side axle, you can already buy. Just buy the standalone harness. Old transmission mounts, crossmember is unchanged, nothing needs moved around.

On my ecoboost swap, I'm "stage 3" all in on mods is roughly 800 including the new stealth exhaust making 290/374.

Well the other thing is, most SVTs are getting up there in miles, so a rebuild is smart to do before a turbo. That adds to the cost, and to the trouble. How much do you charge for a engine built for your turbo kit Tom?

The svt is a one off vehicle w/ unique parts (trans,axles,ect). So if your wanting to go the st motor route, really best off starting w/ a '05-'07 as that'd have parts that you'd need....
