Sure you just have to cut the pipe a few inches by where it goes to the throttle body

its a lot more complicated than that. if you cut the TB pipe short then the bend at the intercooler has to be changed and would probably require adding another bend for it to make it all the way back around the rail otherwise you will just have a pipe thats to short.

no i cant make any adjustments to the kit. chase's car is assembled now and the kit is finished. cutting the fender well is very simple and offers much straighter pipe routing then going through the inside if the frame rail.

Would the downpipe be the same for an SVT? I mean after the header and cat, does the catback flange, and flex and all reside in the same location on an SVT, as the Zetec?

for my kit yes they are. but i could not build it to suit both no. it simply ends at the end of the oil pan b/c i can not account for all the different combinations of aftermarket exhaust.

in the near future i may be making an option for vband or an attachment to a trubendz zetec flex but i have not decided yet

no one has tested it to the max. i am just a guy welding in my garage and cant afford to buy a focus and fully build it just to test for numbers. the only part that could possibly hold it back would be the log manifold. i have personally seen log manifolds support over 450whp

I was just wondering, awesome looking kit btw! I really like the turbo mounting on the top versus the bottom.

Is there room to just turn the WG 180* and make a 90* bend down for the screamer pipe?

the wg can not be turned around b/c it will interfer with a lot of things such as pcv and oil lines. but i have the wg dump tube built. i'll post pics of it tonight. completely forgot. it has plenty of room to clear the o2 sensors and block.
