Ive been looking at obx headers as my next buy. Anyone have them on there car or another brand thats in the 200-300$ range. This is a 2007 ford focus btw with sap package 120,000km on it
whats all this about valve and rockers only being good to 180bhp? its the springs that need upgrading if you go with a stage 2+ cam
