Svt Header?

I wan't to fully upgrade my exhaust on my SVTF, but I want to know if it would be wise to change out the Header? Iwas told by Steeda that the SVTF already comes with a long tube race header. So should I just keep this one? Thanks!

The stock header is the best you can get

The stock header is designed by Cosworth, plus I dont believe anyone makes a replacement header.

OK, so it's unanimous....stock header is one fine piece of engineering.
I'd like to add, so is the stock exhaust system itself.

What exactly are you after?
If it's more power, it's not going to happen, especially on a NA engine with little or no mods.

If it's better sound you want, then yes, that's do-able.
There's plenty of info along those lines within these forums.
There's also as many opinions as there are members on this board.
I'd suggest searching for Borla, MBRP, MagnaFlow, or HKS.
Also narrow down the search to "SVT Performance Chat" under Search Options/Search Forum...

Personally, I'd save my money on any exhaust mods (if it's power you're after),
and instead pick up one of the Tuners now available for the SVTF.
Search for Diablo and SCT.

Awesome, Thanks Guys and yes, the exhaust system I'm looking at is by HKS. But Like you said, it may very well just be for sound, but it's cool, I got a good deal. Thanks again!
