zx3raw i want to replace my stock exhaust and i plan on doing it myself but ive never done it before so i want to get the full exhaust without any welding...could i get the JBA headers with a RT hi-flo cat and a catback exhaust and be able to put them all together without any problems with sizeing or needing extra pipeing? im getting a 2.25 cat back btw

killer ZETEC technically no shorty will give good gains. but since i'm also ging this way it's a randomtech hfc and pick one you like combo. they all flow pretty much equal. but i'd find a cramic coated one to drop in there. especailly if you live in salty areas like i do (i think the hfc is seramc coated but don't hold me as the gospel on this)

I have a 2000 automatic se ..... would shorty headers give me some good gains?

streetfocus It should match up to most of the popular cat back(flex back) exhaust kits.

MKtoad I checked McNews and I can't find the kit. Do they still carry it? And will it fit with a focus sport exhaust?

im sorta confused. i went to mcnews, and found the part, but apperently i have to get 2M5Z-5E212-AA <---- that part number?
im getting a full magnaflow exhaust on my car. and i want to get these headers, can i just get the headers, or do i have to buy something else?

I have the SVT kit from McNews a very good product. It comes in two versions with hi-flo cat and without, the without utilizes the ORP. From what I understand (you probably know better than me)California is pretty strict and anything that varies from stock is a problem. If you had the SVT kit with hi-flo cat and all they did was a sniff test you should be OK but if they do a visual and they know what they are doing you'll probably be screwed. With the FS set up you mentioned you would definetly fail...with the SVT Kit & Hi-Flo cat you might have a chance.

jstrunk 5.1 hp and 9.2 lbs torque doesnt sound to bad by MAC, and for just 239, it doesnt seem like a bad deal. are these numbes correct? are you saying that shorties wont really increase it like this? 5.1/9.2 doesnt seem to bad to me...

TLFerrill the closest thing is the svt header with high-flow, but if you got a race header that deletes the cat you would have to have one welded in somewhere, possible but annoying. shorties are so similar to the stock that they really arent worth the money to most people.
