SVT header vs. Race header?

So I'm trying to get my exhaust together, and can't decide whether or not to go with an SVT header package, high-flo cat, and 2.5" flex/Trubendz w/Borla muffler, or go with a FC race header, and the 2.5" flex/borla combo. What is the real difference between the SVT and race header? I know they're a different set-up, but is the race header set-up louder (only), or are there power gains to back up the extra noise? Also, which would sound "better" (deep, not rice)? Thanks!

I would say go with the SVT header set-up b/c they are the best headers out for the focus and they give better tq gains.
