svt header/cat/flex

anyone have pictures of what the header/cat/flex setup on the SVT looks like compared to the standard zetec?.....im building a turbo kit for my zetec and im under the impression that the svt cat is UNDER the motor istead of directly in front of it between the block and fans. if this is true im also wondering if the svt cat and flex will bolt up to a zetec cat-back exhaust. any help is greatly appreciated.

Yes, the CAT is under the motor.
Here's a diagram of the layout:


The CAT is where the green band and bracket is, and the flex-pipe is the silver piece downstream from the CAT.

As far as installing the SVT CAT and Flex system on a standard model system, I'm sure if you search the ZETEC Performance forums, you'll find an answer there.
The flanges on the flex pipe are different sizes between the two models.
You'd need to do some minor modification in that area.

Won't you need a custom header for the turbo install or can you modify any header you buy (i.e. FC, Steeda, etc)??

Yeah, the header DOES go under the motor, but it still bolts to the side by the fans. I have this pic in my gallery....





Sorry, yes, this is just the Zetec, non-svt.

No need for the double post.
I'm merging your SVT Performance Chat thread with this one...
