Question ORP + Magnaflow Cat Back+what Header?

I am new to this board (first post) and was looking for some help.....I ordered a FC ORP and a Magnaflow Cat-Back exhaust for my 03 Euro Focus SVT. Now they say that the SVT comes with a "tuned" 4-2-1 Header, which it is 4-2-1 but I do not know how "tuned" it really is.

What companies make a decent header for the SVT?
How about a flex pipe?

I saw someone got $100 for their stock SVT header on ebay, makes it worthwhile to invest in something nicer if it is out there.

Thanks for the help.

Andy

what is the diameter of the magnaflow you ordered ?
i hope its more than 2.25...becouse thats the diameter of the svt exahust...
about the header...
the best header for the svt is the one thats comes with it...
so keep it and be happy....

a stock svt header with orp and flex makes great number in a regular zetec...

Personally, I wouldn't have ordered the Magnaflow unless it is 2.5" piping. The SVTF already comes with tuned 2.25" exhaust. And I would agree with the others in that the SVT header is the best one you will find. Save your money on the Magnaflow and use it to get an intake or cam gears. Welcome!

Like everyone says...the stock headers are nice. as far as a flexpipe if you need a 2.5" trubendz is suppose to be good. welcome to the boards.

2.25"

Does the Borla Cat-Back for the SVT come 2.5" or 2.25"?

Besides Trubendz, any other manufacturers of a 2.25" flex pipe?

I think I have learned more in 10 minutes here than I wanted to....haha...thanks for the info!!

Will do....

I think I will do that.....once I can order a Procharger I will think about a change. In an earlier post someone mentioned a 2.5" flex pipe from Trubendz.....I am guess the one on the SVT is already 2.5" so all I need is an off road pipe?

Thanks

Andy
