Exclamation Best Headers for SVT JRSC BBK

So I've read all over the forums that the stock SVT headers are among the best that you can have installed.

I have a predicament, my header was recently bent in severely at 1 of the collectors. The pipe looks like its been squished to about less then half the volume it used to flow.

I have a JRSC BBK and was wondering for FI applications is there a better header then the SVT? or should I just buy a new ceramic coated SVT header?

The car drives fine, but im not sure If im suffering power loss as I had the JRSC installed and tuned with the bent header.

Thanks,

Adam

I've read about them a few years back. It would be nice if they were ready for purchase

I'm running the FocusWerks 4-2-1 with my JRSC and I wish I had gone with the SVT set-up.

They make or used to make a "race header" that actually pumped out more top-end power than the stock SVT header could, with a loss in the midrange. Is that what you have, or am I thinking of the 4-1 design?

Do you guy think the kink in my SVT header is causing a loss of power? It seems to be squished in half.
