FRPP ceramic header is as good as you will find. I have a borla exhaust, but if I had to do it again I would just do the lunchbox delete and keep the stock svt exhaust it's identical to the borla. I think it's even built by borla. Could have saved a bunch of cash!

well if you bought an svt you dont need headers there one of the best headers designed so far and as far as an exhaust magnaflow and borla are what alot of people buy i bought my borla exhaust and trubendz flexpipe for like 560 bucks and i cant complain i aso had a magnaflow on my old zx3 i cant complain about ethier and if you plan to get an off-road pipe for your svt i would recomend getting your exhaust resonated hope that helps some what and enjoy your svt

Leave the stock header on there, like stated before it is the best you can get...
I cant recommend an exhaust because I have never looked into it. But I can tell you that you will get 0 gains from a new exhaust as the stock exhaust minus the cat flows very well for an N/A setup, all you will being is paying for sound which in my mind is kinda lame. Your best off getting a HFC to free up some power and stay emissions legal...

Welcome to the forums! It's already been said but def keep your factory header, it was designed by Cosworth and I think they know what they're doing. Most catbacks are similar, if you concerned about cost I'd recommend the MBRP, if not Magnaflow or Borla are excellent choices. You won't really see any gains from a catback as the stock exhaust is already very good but you will gain a nice deep tone. If you want some actual power, either an off road pipe or highflow give excellent gains over stock.

I just have a HFC, I like it. As far as looks, I have the FRPP ceramic coated header. It looks REALLY good!
