its definatley not 20hp........I had a full bolt on focus.....it was still slower than a stock svt....fastest way to make a focus fast?

sell it and buy a faster car.

Unless you have a d23, then you can actually make hps with bolt ons.

5hp maybe.
I honestly could feel no difference between stock header/exhaust and svt header, 2.5" ORP, 2.5" exhaust

Just go fswerks turbo. Unless you actually will tell us your budget then I can start spending your money today and get you to a good power goal. Once I figure out whats triggering my knock sensor I will be at 280 whp, and then im turning mine up to 3-350 whp. Only problem is in the focus world, to play with the big boys costs a lot more than other cars imo.

BTW, I dont care how loud my exhaust is (well i do but meh) it sounds so freaking mean I love it. Ill get a sound clip for you guys sometime.

Still cant figure out what the noise is, imma tear off the valve cover again and check for timing like kev was thinking, but I honestly dont think its that. When I took it to the engine shop yesterday he couldnt hear anything but something in my bellhousing (flywheel chatter imo), so im still looking :S.
