I'll spend the money for a better product, but if the gains are just going to be minimal, then its not worth the extra 70-100 dollars or what not. I currently have the FS intake installed, and my FS ceramic exhaust and FC UDP kit is going to be installed next week when I get back from vaca. That's the set up that I will have (maybe a 65mm tb) when I get to finishing out my exhaust. Basically, I think that the SVT header will be better for the money, as the ADDITIONAL gains from the Ford Racing, JBA, etc. shorties will be minimal... But someone correct me if I'm wrong.
FS Intake, FS Exhaust, FC Short Shifter, FC 2 piece UDP's, VF Engineering Lower Mount, FC 65mm TB, SVT Suspension Swap

To Come: SVT headers, RT High-Flo Cat, flex pipe, ported '00 mani, adj. cam gears

The best sound system is under the hood.
