Coyote Swapped 03 Cobra Update

Been away from the forums for a while, figured I would post a brief update. Last I was on here my car was a TVS 4R70W car. In the fall of 2015 I began transitioning the car over to more of a track car. My goals were 7 second quarter mile times, 4 second 1/8 mile times, 180+ mph, and 1.1X 60' times, all while still being able to drive the car on the street. Anyone that knows me knows that I am extremely OCD, especially when it comes to working on cars. I wanted the car to be able to drive the car to the local car cruise in, win a car show, and bust off a 7 second pass. So I set out to build the car I dreamed of... Click Here to Continue Reading...
New SVTP Merchandise | Introducing the VooDoo T-Shirt and Hoodie | Available for Pre-Order Now

As you may have noticed by now, we've altered the SVTP logo. What you see at the top of the page is not the finished graphic that will ultimately occupy that location, but it is 95% there. The final version will be a bit more polished.

However, based on this logo change I'd like to debut some new SVTP swag. I like to call this new design VooDoo. It builds on the success of our previous Trinity and Coyote. It will be available in our premium athletic fit t-shirts and, for the first time in SVTP history, a zip-up hoodie... Click Here to Continue Reading...

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...
