    So, I want to add some horses power to my pony, but don't have the adequate funds for a supercharger. What are some affordable changes that will shave some seconds off of my 1/4 mile?

    Im thinking of buying a SCT tuner for my 2000 GT, but am wondering if it is worth it? I have the usual bolt ons. Will I see a noticable increase in power? Gas mileage? Can the SCT SF3/X3 tuner also do things like change tire RPM's? Thanks!
