cctman Ok guys now should i get a focus central with bosal flex/or Focus sport flex or should i do the SVT focus header with Bosal/OR Focus sport flex? Which would i prolly get more gain in? Because the SVT header would be a HELL of out a lot cheaper....the SVT header is a race header isnt it? It said it was off road use only at which is what i want, illegal.......

thrill5one6 i got Focus Central long tube race headers, Focus Sport Flex Pipe, no cat and Focus sport exhaust and i am very happy with it, it is a bit loud but i felt an increase in power

zslaton simply put, no sense in opening up your cat back and header and then choking them off with a stock flexpipe. Pay the money and get a stainless Bosal.

tunedfocuzx3 if you mean is there any sense to buying the flexpipe, yes.

No, the offroad pipe is the cat eliminator pipe. The flexpipe stays.

The race header replaces the stock manifold "header" and the cat, the flexpipe then goes between the race header and the catback exhaust.

Here's an image of your stock cat, flexpipe and exhaust. Might help. it's from the How-To Library for installing a catback, see

Obviously disregard the "cut here" part of that image, it's meant to demonstrate how to remove the stock catback

I'm only posting the image so you can see where the stock cat and flexpipe are...

Hope that helps.

Kicknzx3 off road pipe would be connected to the original exhaust manifold or shorty header, its before the flex-pipe section. yes an ORP would eliminate the cat, but surely would not had the same power

Kicknzx3 fc, newest generation is a very quality pc.

both headers put about the same power down. one of the best modifications to do.
