dude, i would NOT do anything to that header. you gotta be crazy if you do. SVT did a good job there. you're not going to find a better header! you'll definately get gains from a hi-flow cat or orp though. as far as an aftermarket catback, it's really more for the sound unless you have FI.

in short, go with the RT hi flow cat

that's great if you like it i just wouldn't waste my money on that. i also wouldn't get a cat-back exhaust. both the header and cat-back is already improved from the regular zetec. the cat is a different story, plus it'll give a little more sound but not too loud. if you had a regular zetec than there's a lot more horsepower to gain there but there's certain mods i wouldn't do to the SVT. that's just me and my opinion. i'm glad you like your header!

well i know it's around $359 from www.hypillauto.com but you might wanna try ebay. some of them ebay stores have it cheaper. i think i saw one store selling it for just over $300. that's probably the cheapest you're going to find
