theres alot more to it... the svt header replaces the stock manifold and catalytic converter but you need another piece. either a random tech highflow cat specifically for the svt header on a normal zetec, or a "test pipe" which is about a foot long to mate to the stock zetec flexpipe location... the svt header requires the use of a different egr tube and also the svt dipstick tube/dipstick. many people recommend getting the svt power steering line as well as the stock powersteering line runs close to the header which may cause it to burst. (i personally have had no such problems.) no welding is required and it bolts directly to the head but as i said it does require another pipe to mate to a regular zetec flexpipe. hope this helped. everything you need can be gotten from www.mcnewsautomotive.com. ray knows his stuff there and they have some of the best prices in the business.[thumb]
is the svt header that good over let say OBX header? im talking power gains? i mean i could get the obx header for around 200 shipped., now is the svt header kit is 270 + the svt cat or orp thats 175 thats like 445 +shipping. is it worth it? im not bashing i just want to know, because im gonna be in the market for a header in a couple of weeks, so just trying to figuer it out... i know obx is bad quality but still thats like doble the price for almost the same gains??
thanks for the gasket info BlackNRed01
I'm on it like it's cool. I drive my focus everyday but w/out dynos. I'll come back w/ a report on how I feel or do not feel any differences in the new exaust setup.
