O.o to even thinking about this on a stock head. The exhaust gasses would simply get lost in there.

On a serious build, this thing could make some serious power up high. The primaries are too big for too much down low, but man who cares. if i ever end up AutoXing out my focus, i've found my header.

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.
If this is the case, why don't you guys make a SVT ORP or flex with an E-cutout or a aftermarket zetec flex with an E-cutout.

You would sell a shitload of those before you would sell this header @ $500+ a pop... I know I would DEFF buy an SVT ORP with an E-cutout


Also like i mention on Focaljet.

Topspeed, I give it to you for making this header, just from the looks of it, it will surpass the SVT, but if your FoFo is dropped really low that lowest primary will receive some dents. a lot more than a SVT header will receive..

Lets see it not only on the dyno then, but the car also if possible Topspeed? To see how it fits and sits in the car.

For all you not wanting to go all out, just sit behind the keyboard and watch.
Simple solution is for TS to post the ID of the primaries and the length of the primaries. For me that's all I need to know to find what application it will work best on. And being I'm in the market for something new very soon (right now) I would like that info rather than a bunch of yahoo's speculating over a couple pictures and zero actual info from TS. Far as a car to test it on, dyno wise, the SVT should be the mule. Being there aren't many people with more HP than an SVT that will be your target market N/A.

Taken from the thread on FJ- This particular header uses 1-7/8" primaries and a 3" collector w/ a v-band flange. I am unsure of the length though. TS said the headers are made to order - you can choose primary size (1-5/8, 1-3/4, or 1-7/8) as well as the collector size and flange type.
