ORP or HFC?

i cant decide if i want an orp or hfc. i hate loud, but is an orp really all that much louder? i would have an orp with everything else stock as far as exhaust goes.

plus orp is cheaper and more horsies

Im in the market for this too and ive decided to get an orp bc it gains more power, its cheaper, and i'm not lazy to change it when i have inspection. Theres not many n/a mods for the svt so i wanna squeeze everything outta it. i think its worth it

The difference in power between an ORP and HFC on a non-boosted SVT is practically negligable. I would go with the HFC... it costs more, but it's definitely quieter, and you don't have that fuel smell coming out of your exhaust.

When you start boosting, an ORP will give you more gains.

You can easily plug the hole in your header. They make O2 sensor plugs...pretty sure an exhaust shop would have one.
