I would go with Joe on this one...why go to an SVO computer when the TC
stuff is better suited for driving? Boost is really not an issue. If you
want to increase the boost you can do it manually with a bleeder valve or
hose. I think the main difference between the SVO and late TC's are in the
turbo and exhaust (including manifold). I really wouldn't think the
heads/intake setup are much different as far as HP.
