FocusSport race header and flex pipe

If this question has been answered here already, someone please point me to where. I did a search using "FocusSport header" and the system searches using this: FocusSport, header. Anyway, the search results gave me every instance of "FocusSport" and of "header". Too many results to be of help.

The question: Does anyone here have any experience with the FocusSport race header and flex combo. I was just wandering around some parts sites making a wish list and I found this item. I don't remember seeing it mentioned here yet, so I thought I'd ask.

As far as my search results, Does anyone know how to force the system to search for: FocusSport header

I thought enclosing it in quotes would do the trick but the system still broke it down to two search params, not one.

Thanx!

The SVT header is superior to any production Header on the market

the above posts are correct.

do NOT replace your SVT header with any aftermarket header.


the only exception, if you can find it, is the JBA 4-1 header, it is the only header I know of that made more power than the SVT header on the same car (wasnt much, like 4-6 whp) but the header hangs about 2 inches lower (because of the collector) and gets dented VERY easily. Not worth the trade off


keep your SVT header.

I have never seen a JBA come close to the same power let alone more then the SVT , I have never seen any production header out do the SVT on any of the Focus

I agree with every one, don't pull the stock header. However focussport is now FSWerks if you still want to track them down.

Well, I guess I see why I haven't seen a thread on that header here before. Thank you gentlemen for slaking my curiousity. I guess a replacement factory SVT header stays on my wish list. Nice to know Ford did such a thorough job with the SVTF

I usually use quotes on Google myself. I'll try your suggestion next time I do a search and keep my fingers crossed...

Yes, I found that out when I googled "FocusSport header". I was just wondering about it because they make a big deal of signing a waiver before you actually make your purchase, because this header/flex pipe combination is "for race only!"

I thought, as such, it may be a bit better than the SVT stock header. Since I need to replace mine in a few months, I thought if it was better, I'd consider it. It is interesting because this combination uses just the header and flex pipe, where stock has the header, cat (or replacement), and the flex pipe. One less joint, one less potential leak.

But the overwhelming response seems to be to stick with stock. Good enough for me.
