SVT JBA Headers

i just won a slightly used SVT JBA Headers on e-bay for 100.00 is that a good deal? and what good will they do on my svt? i have been told that only the JBA's are any good apart from stock on SVT's, is that right? thanks

The SVT header is hands down the best for the Zetec engine...the only reason to replace the SVT header is to go turbo.

Yup.. That would be a waste of 100 bucks... and it would probably perform worse

Still beats paying $599 for a brand new one.

Well, at least you've got a spare just in case the one on the car gets damaged.

well the old ones are, they have been bottomed out and the are almost flat on the bottom.. and was told only the JBA headers will be the only headers for the SVT that you will see power gain...???? so IDK.

I do have to ask... how could this



Flow better than this:



??????

I could see a low rpm power loss with the jba.. but it just seems like it would scream up high. Especially on a supercharged zetec or svt. It flat out just looks like its a better flowing header.
