For that price I am thinking it is worth a try. No real info on their site on who actually made it.
i bought something similar to what your looking at. mine was off of ebay for 110$ with free shipping. just because they cost more doesnt necessarily mean there better. its still stainless steel, bolt on application. ill be receiving mine sometime this week ill post pics and let you know how it sounds.

focusman123 alright so i have a few questions. first off if i get a cat back exhaust it should bolt right up to the downpipe right? even if im running stock headers and down pipe. and also i dont need a tune if i just put on a cat back right? and third on ebay they sell ram horn headers which would bolt up to the stock downpipe. so if i buy these i would not be messing with the egr valve, so therefore would i still have to get a tune?

SE exhaust to SVT header

I have a 2.25" Vibrant cat back system on my wagon and want to use the SVT header/cat/flex. Does the SVT stuff fit to non-SVT cat back systems? Is length an issue or is the junction between flex and exhaust in the same place?

FocusPete316 I bought a cat back 2.5" stainless system from FSWerks in Anaheim. Took the old system off and put the new one in less than an hour. Have the race muffler on mine and it does make a few extra horses. Acceleration from 2nd up to 5th is vastly improved. Ok, at just under $400, not cheap, but you do get quality and fit.

FastFocus50 I've got a 2000 ZETEC that I will be racing on an oval track. We have to have the exhaust exit ahead of the drivers side rear wheel. We can also remove the cat. Is there enough meat left on the exhaust flange to weld on a pipe? I figured I'd use 2.5 inch pipe as that is the max allowable. We don't have to run a muffler but I have a Cherry Bomb and could use it if I wanted to. Any suggestions what will work best for me ???

LouBomb holy thread batman! lol

for a n/a zetec best thing i can recommend is find a used svt setup.. including header, flex, etc.. that's been proven best for our cars..

kensaysrawr Looking for system that is decent for 300 that isn't raspy.
