    I can’t help but enjoy this Bluetooth discussion as both John and I sit here looking at our engines sitting on the workbench

    So true. My old Zetec SVT engine, which made more power than my just-rebuilt SVT, now has a new, high-end oil pump. Since low oil pressure was my motivation for replacing it, I might put it back in to replace the rebuilt one. Decisions, decisions, we shall see.

    Of course, that still leaves me 100+ hp shy of what others here are looking for.

    Stick the SVT back in...you know you want it. But more hp only leads to more off-road adventures. Ask me how I know this.
