SVTPerformance.com Turns 18 | Just in Time to Vote in Florida

November is a special time for SVTP. See, Nov. 12th, 2000 was the day that the vBulletin version of SVTPerformance.com came online. There was a short-lived prior version of SVTP before the vB site, but we generally celebrate Nov. as the birth month of the site as we know it. It has grown and changed a lot over the years, but the camaraderie the SVTP community shares remains a constant. It’s the members that really make this site special.

Since SVTP is turning 18 (it can buy beer in Canada now) this year we felt it was time for a fresh round of software mods, to give you guys an even better experience on the site. Building on the software upgrades we performed two years ago we be adding features that will make the posting and browsing process much more streamlined. Unbeknown to most, the SVTP Software Elves have been quietly working behind the scenes on these new modifications to the forum. Here's what we've been up to: Click Here to Continue Reading...

Opportunity Cost | What Did We Miss-Out-On Because of the GT350's FPC 5.2L VooDoo V8?

A few months ago I was talking to a former Ford employee who spent a little time at SVT. He was around when the team was developing the Shelby GT350 Mustang, so naturally our conversation started to drift towards that topic. I’m always interested in hearing the thoughts and theories behind why certain decisions are made during the development process, and the GT350 certainly has lots of details to explore. Eventually our conversation turned to the Flat Plane Crank (“FPC”) equipped 5.2L VooDoo engine. That’s when he laid a bit of knowledge on me that I wasn’t quite prepared for. He told me just what that FPC program cost the Ford enthusiast community. Click Here to Continue Reading...
The Miracle of Modern Tuning – What EFI Tuning has Done for the Aftermarket Industry

Have you ever had the chance to look at a vintage Go-Fast Parts catalog from the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, etc? The big ticket items tended to be cylinder heads, cams, and intakes. That’s where you were going to find your biggest gains on most engines of the era. However, when it comes to modern performance engines aftermarket major hard parts are nearly nonexistent. While there are about 65,000 different aftermarket cylinder heads for a small-block Chevy, there’s only one for Ford Modular engines. And that one choice is for a 2V. Non-Factory Modular intake manifold options can be counted on a couple of hands, but there is a decent selection of off-the-shelf and custom-grind camshafts. What the modern gear head has that our forebears could only dream of is the current robust selection of power adders. Click here to Continue Reading...
Victory Lap | SVTP Tool-Tech | Various Bottle Openers

This is the end of our first series of SVTP Tool-Tech Articles/Videos, and like the end of (and oftentimes during) any good job you’re going to need a tasty beverage. If you’re like me, your drink selection is often contained in a frosty bottle and you’re going to need a way to get in. True; it would be simple enough to grab a pair of pliers, or more manly to use a Titanium Fixed Blade Knife (more on that later), but nothing quite as satisfying as successfully employing the correct tool for the job.

Rumor of the Moment | All-New "Mustang Week" at Daytona Beach, FL | July 15th-20th 2019

SVTP was privy to a little insider information about a new Ford-Centered event preparing to break cover next year. It will be titled Mustangs At Dayton, and is set to take place July 15th to 20th, 2019. If those dates sound familiar it's likely because Mustang Week at Myrtle Beach used to be held around that week before moving the event to September in 2017. Click Here to Continue Reading...

Many may not realize this, but with the introduction of the 2019 Lincoln Aviator at the 2018 New York International Auto Show we are getting our first look at an all-new platform from FoMoCo. At first glance this news might not seem like much to be concerned with. However, if you’re a fan of performance you might want to take note. “Why,” you may ask? Well it’s really quite simple.
