New member dilemma
I recently purchased a 03 Orange SVT. Right after I bought it I hit a sewer manhole sticking up out of the road (unavoidable). It bent the exhaust manifold back clear back to the flex pipe along the firewall behind the rack and pinion. My question is as I replace these parts should I go with all oem or aftermarket such as the OBX stainless manifold etc? I just plan on using this as my dd with some autocross maybe one or twice a year. I am a former 4g63 guy sold all of that and now am a SVT Focus guy. Thanks!

The OEM SVT header is probably the best on the market. I would stick with it.

You should look on the sell/buy/trade section, you should be able to find this parts use and for a good price. I would try to stick with oem.

Cool thanks for the help, the car seems to be all stock and in very good condition. I have read that a "tune" seems to be worth it for a dd. Any suggestions to prove this?
