that is NOT my garage...I FREAKIN WISH!!!!!! it's at the Hobby Shop on Base really nice, and it's $5 to do pretty much anything..........from an oil change to engine swaps and major custon bodywork......

PS it's NOT an FRPP flex, they don't have flexes...it's just a 2.25'' flex......

^^Isn't the stock SVT 2.5, or is it 2.25? That is what I put on my car with the standard ZX3 Borla. The only fitment issue was that the holes in the flange on the catback had to be slotted for the holse to line up with the ones on the flex.

pkmgarf, I'm doing a similar install this weekend, what did you use to slot the flanges? I've heard they're tough to drill through. Also, were there any length difference issues between the stock setup and the svt setup? Everything line up nice?

Yes I did notice a power gain. I totally feel more pick up from the start and at any speed I am going. The headers and RT Cat gave me the most noticeable power gain to date. To answer some of the question on the post. It is a Borla for a ZX3. I ordered the headers, RT Cat and Flexpipe from Mcnews.... Ray is a great guy to talk to. Make sure that you call and talk to them if and when you order from them. I ordered the wrong headers. There is a header kit for the Zetec which gives you a spot to hook up the EGR. Which I ordered this past monday. So I will be looking for a buyer for the SVT headers on my car now... which have only been on there for bout a week now. The install was easy .... my car has 46000 miles on it so the bolt would have been a pain if we didnt pre-soak the bolts with some PB Blaster. If anyone have anymore question just post :) or PM me or my bud who posted the pics.


Thanks
Greg

p.s. Powerworks is next weekend :) WOOT

UPDATE: if you don't get the power -steering relocation kit, the header will melt the line, and you will spray power steering fluid all over the ground.........and the part it $55 at autozone...............

......just a friendly reminder.....not that white_2k2_ZX5 did that today while in the parking lot, parking next to my car or anything...............

yes, I have picts.....YES, I WILL post them in a bit........

Be careful with the RT cat. Mine cracked and the catalyst material inside fell out of place. The things are overly priced and a piece of crap. Even the muffler shop that had to re-weld the cracks said they have delt with broken RT stuff before. Stick with an ORP or use an SVT flex/cat setup that is more solid.
