if it makes more power than svt, in everything including low and midrange, or can somehow compensate for lack of low end with killer midrange and topend, you will probably have more than a few buyers for $500+. I myself have never spent that much on any part for my car, I just don't make the money. I would love to see dyno's!

That being said this header is not for everyone. Most applications the svt header is just fine. But for those trying to milk every last horsepower on a high horsepower n/a or supercharged build this is the one. This header is made to work with a full 3 inch exhaust and most people are not even running that on a turbo car.

lol im not most people but im running 3" now with no turbo you can call me crazy but idc cause its bad ass

I agree^. But if I could get that much, I think I would, but it better mean like 25-30 HP increase on the Zetec.

not even close on a stock zetec, but a full out race motor with big cams, sheet metal intake manifold and 13.5:1 compression or in a supercharged application you could easily see that much of a gain over the stock configuration.

Well what's stock gains is the big question here, from there we could all almost guess what the HP increase would be.

well, go buy an svt header and stop crowding up the thread with your opinion. We all know even if it did free up 30whp on a stock zetec but cost a grand you still wouldn't buy one. So leave the real headers to people making power.
