FOCUS SVT vs ST 170 //down pipe issue …

Hello:

Have been 3 months since my last upgrade to my SVT … and I want the off road pipe.
But C-F-M.com is OUT OF STOCK of the off road pipe. I found a down pipe in ebay (( link below ))for the ST 170 which I believe that down pipe is what we know by Off road pipe ORP, and my questions are …

> Does this ST 170 down pipe is going to fit in my SVT as a ORP ?
> Does this turn on the check engine light ? How can I prevent this ?
> Can someone with administrator privileges change my username from MotreX to MoltreX ?

My plan is to upgrade to ORP, also a Borla exhaust and maybe a Diablo Predator Flash Tuner … what you think ? breaking the 200 HP border ?

The question are important.
Thank You for your time … Any ideas are welcome.

The ST170 pipe should work just fine with the SVT. If you are ordering from UK the Shipping will be huge. I have ordered from there before and a very small package was $20 shipping.

I believe CFM should have the ORP back in stock very soon.

The ORP I believe turns on the CEL. A tune will cure this.

As for getting 200 hp. You can go S/C or Turbo. A tune, exhaust, and ORP will get you about 5-10 hp more.

in one word...NO. However this exhaust setup+ tom's tune package will add to the response/drivability of the car and HP/TQ throughout da SVT powerband. BTW ORP= loud & raspy I have one and like it but it isn't the cleanest or cleanest sounding mod for the car; its mean as hell though To eliminate the CEL u need to plug the rear O2 to an eliminator i believe theres a HOW TO write up round here or u could probably find one in the sales forum. From the picture on the link it basically looks like a ceramic coated ORP I don't know i guess if you're really itchin for one & can't wait for CFM to move their a$$e$ then take the plunge its a pretty cool mod

No, unfortunately it's not that simple, The ORP will gain you the most power, probably 6-8 and fatten the midrange well. The Borla really doesn't add anything power wise, combined with the ORP maybe another 1-2 HP, but sounds a LOT better. A predator will gain a few hp and tq but increase driveability. Think the most you can expect from the tuner is 6-8hp, despite what they claim.

So best case scenario, you'd gain around 12-16 hp at the engine, probably dyno mid 150s at the wheels.

Its more like...

7whp/10wtq for the ORP
1-2whp/wtq for the Borla MAYBE
3-4whp for the tune (on top of everything else.... more for the tune by itself if you had no other mods)

BUT those are peak numbers... with the tune alone there are places that you pick up closer to 15whp/wtq... but its not at the peak.. its under the curve.

It seems that I need much more to learn about mods … is not that simple like Forza Motor Sport. So bedside all this gain of 12-14whp for like $1,000 plus installation… is this a good move for me to upgrade this … I have a aem intake that’s my only performance mod. I’m like few clicks away to order all this stuff to Puerto Rico and make justice in the name of Ford Focus SVT in the island… Again is this a good move ?…
