SVT header stilll?

So I found out yesterday from the previous owner that I have an entire Borla exhaust and header would it still benefit to switch out the header? I have a flex pipe leak right now and I'm thinking of fixing it along with a header conversion

Dont exacly know what your asking.
Why would you wanto swap the header if you already have one ?
Or do u mean swapping from a short tube to a long tube header ?

Would it be beneficial in terms of horsepower to get a SVT header instead of keeping the Borla

Borla never made a header for the focus, so without a picture, we have no idea what you have and if it would be beneficial to make the switch

^ what he said,
but if what you have is a shorty header like the stock one, yes you'll get more flow from a long tube like the svt header = more hp.

Post a picture of the header so we can help you out more.

Long tube is better, technically the stock zetec exhaust manifold is a shorty header of sorts.
