Ordered my Off Road Pipe today!

I have a 2002 SVT, my only performance mods are an K&N Intake and Straight Pipe ( lost power ). I have decided that for Christmas I am going to get a magnaflow exhaust. I also just ordered my ORP today, so that will be going on with my new exhaust. I am also considering going with the FSwerks 4-1 performace Header. http://www.fswerks.com/headers.htm . Does this sound like a good plan for my exhaust set up? Thanks

I would say if the car is N/A you should prob spend the $500 on something other than a header. The SVT header looks to be pretty good except it seems to neck down to much at the collector. Either way I doubt you'll see much gain from replacing it.

Yea I have heard that the svt header is pretty good. How should I go about getting them looking better. Mine are a little rusted atvthe moment. I was honestly just buying the new header for the fact of how good it looks.

For some reason I opened this up thinkin you had ordered an o/r x or h pipe for a mustang.. come to see that it's about buyin a new header. lol

As others have mentioned the SVT header is the best there is for the zetec motor... as is the Stock SVT airbox being the best possible intake for the car as well. Cosworth did a pretty damn good job squeezing every bit out of power out of the zetec they could!

I would personally put that $500 towards some suspension work or in a savings fund for a turbo. That's my $0.02
