the orp gives about 8hp i think....but you can do a search and come up with tons of info on this subject.....and yes its easier to do all your exhaust at once if your paying a shop to do it...if your going to do it yourself then it doesnt matter

The ORP will free up your exhaust by doing away with the Cat. Combo with a good cat back, you will have good gains. Although having the ORP is illegal due to emission laws, because of this you might want to check into your states laws.

As already posted you can perform a seach of the SVT Forum, use "ORP" as the search word.

Keep us posted and if you have anymore questions please dont hesitate to ask. We were all newbs once.

ORP with AEM CAI is supposed to give you 10hp with is a very good gain personally I don't like the combo cause the AEM CAI has lots of problems and the ORP is illegal exhausts add minimal horsepower and just sound better I don't think I would bother getting a new one money better spent elsewhere the SVT stock exhaust is good enough
