Ok ill spell it out because this is frustrating. the need for a bigger injector comes when you mod to the point where your engine needs more fuel. whats the goal of a turbo and a supercharger???? to force as much air into your engine as possible not fuel!!!!! all your doing is putting unburned fuel out your exhaust and ruining your high flow converter if you have one.
Gimme the keys. You got no business driving tonight.

A tune. You need an SVT ECU for the engine, but an SVT ECU only works with an MTX. As such you'd need a tune for that specific setup. It's more worth it to do a 3L swap.

Just recently a friend of mine pointed out a way to use an ATX cruise cable with the standard 2.5 TB bracket. By cutting an opening in the standard slot where the cruise cable is installed one can position the cable on the inner opening. The diameter is different so the cable won't clip in by itself, but some silicone seems to hold it in place just fine.

Well then just let me know what department store I can go get a cup of SVT TB brackets at.

Edit:

Yeah it is a bit ghetto, but the main thing is that it works. It doesn't impede operation at all and that's about all you can ask for without a legitimate SVT TB bracket available.

How do u tell if u have a return or returnless fuel rail
If you have a early 1999 (pre-5/99) you'll have return. You can find the build date on the door jamb of the driver side door I believe. Or you can look in the engine bay under the throttle body, if you have one silver line coming out you have a returnless, 2=return.
