What do you mean Toms tune isnt worth it???

Granted no tune is going to raise peak power up much but there are places below peak that you see upto and sometimes more than 20whp gain from Toms tune alone.

I don't know that anyone has had or if its even possible to get the zetec that high n/a.

However like said above Tom's tune is awesome and I highly recommend it!

Sure it is...... but its not very daily driver friendly. I know a guy that builds some of the "Touring Car" engines and they have had zetecs and Duratec that made 300hp.... of course they were also turning them 11-13k rpms and after one race they were toast.

The SVT is 170 from the factory at the flywheel, when I dynoed my car NA it was 150whp. So picking up 30-50 more hp with bolt on and tunes I don't think will happen. I didn't think the SVT responded well to bolts ons like other car, The 4.6L mustang motor comes to mind.

I have seen full bolt on SVTs with tunes, full exhaust, everything you can do without going into the motor only make 160whp..... then I've seen the exact same setups (even with the same tunes) make 145whp.
