I'm just planning header with exhaust and I've heard nothing but "SVT header is -THE BEST- header for 2.0 Zetec" Is this not correct?

Fixing that issue probably will help.

In Texas it's not uncommon to have people driving 100-120 miles each way. Everything is bigger in Texas.

PM drunkyoda about what kind of gains he got from his SVT header, etc.

I am untuned and still beat him number wise.

I am having a hard time buying into the SVT header hype(I know that I'm gonna catch some crap nowLOL). But, maybe a SVT header would put my car into the mid to high 130's? But, I doubt it.

OBX header does improve over stock but not as much as svt header does. Local member sleepyboy had OBX on his yellow zx3 and when he finally switched to the svt he noticed a difference.

Kinda true. I've just never met any of them who could afford to commute so far.
