WHAT ? The SVT is VERY WELL balances with boost , I Tune for as good or better driveability then stock with Boost , its well balanced for boost because the SVT started life as the FR200 which was Turbocharged then changed to NA at the last meeting , Driveability is more then Tuning is what your going to say next , So I will also add the SVT has Factory bigger and better brakes , suspension and more which makes it a very well balanced VehicleAnd I know the 'holy grail' for many guys is simply HP, but some of us like drive-ability best, as long as HP is decent enough to agree with the whole car.
Actually the SVT Getreg 6 speed is very well suited for Boost , Just how long when you drive are you in 1st gear , the 5 speed MTX-75 Getreg has the same 1st gear issue ????In the case of an SVT/ST170, there is a Getrag to consider... 6 speed, close ratio with a short 1st gear. Gobs of HP coming on in a rush, makes the trans a poor fit.
Hmmm , Odd my SVT has run 12`s in the 1320 with the stock Engine Turbocharged , worked very well for me on the 1/4 mile and the Mustangs I out ran thought the sameThe SVT makes a poor dragster, it is a road/track car, when set up properly.
Peek HP , who said anything about peek HP , I build for over all , good flat or climbing TQ curves , good balanced driveability , My guess is you have never drove a proper built Turbocharged SVT and sense you havent how can you judge ?No amount of talk about peak HP in an SVT can change my opinion that it's better to boost something else, the SVT is good NA car, with a few tweaks.
I call BS if your saying you made " clean up " changes to your SVT and made 190 whp ????? My Turbocharged SVT is PERFECTLY balanced for eating up corners , fun driving , road track , efficient cruising , it will 100% hang , drive , respond as yours does yet out perform it in ever way being TurbochargedOf course, I made clean-up changes to my SVT and got ~190, also improved brakes and handling. That was enough to be plenty of fun driving it as it was intended... eating up corners on road and track, and efficient cruising on street. Nuff said.
