High flo cat & flexpipe

Hi. Yeah, I've got a 2.0 Zetec, but I thought this was the appropriate forum. Can anyone tell me who makes a high flow cat and flexpipe for the SVT?

I'm asking because I want to put the FRPP long tube header on my car, and it requires the SVT converter and flexpipe. I got prices for both, and it comes to $738.38. I figured that for that kind of bling, I could probably get high flow aftermarket parts.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

ford claims that the SVT converter is already a high flow design, though I can't confirm that without spending too much money to put pressure sensors on my exhaust (that, and I'd rather spend the money on an offroad pipe/MIL eliminator). The SVT flexpipe is 2.5 ID, I think, someone correct me if I'm wrong.

if I were you, I'd get the offroad pipe/MIL eliminator. you can pick both up for around $200 if you shop around. I'm not sure how much the flex pipe costs by itself. what size catback do you have? I recommend against going larger than 2 1/4 on a regular zetec, unless you've got headwork/cams done. a 2.5 inch catback would only make you lose torque and not really gain any HP.

I want to get the offroad pipe for my SVT, but I'd rather have stainless pipe than aluminized/ceramic coated.

Get the SVT kit from mcnewsautomotive.com. Don't waste your time with the ORP. The SVT header is hands down the best zetec header out.

Forgive my ignorance. Is the ORP just a chunk of pipe which replaces the cat? That's what I've assumed from reading other posts, but never asked.

basically, the svt O/R pipe is a 2.5 inch pipe, replaces the cat, has a bung for the rear O2 sensor (you'll need the MIL eliminator to keep from throwing a cat efficiency code). I know some people who have tried to make their own pipe, but they usually ended up buying the premade one. you can make all the measurements you want, but it's still a pain in the rear to get all the flange angles right so that it all lines up properly.

By "SVT header" are you referring to the long tube header from Ford Racing?
