Well, getting an SVT manifold isn't going to happen and I don't see you fabricating one. I think 1turbofocus made a custom one but he built like a dozen before getting results he was happy with. He has all the equipment required, you do not.
your probally correct there.
i have access to a machine shop, almost everything i need. only two things around i can't get my hands on a are "REAL" dyno and a Machine to do mandrel bending.
reccomend just porting out the stock one?, i'd be lucky to get a svt mani on e-bay or if i called around to some scrap yards, but i doubt they will sell it seprate. i think i might just port the stocker or buy a ford racing intake manifold. im sure just porting the stock should do...
im considering gettin the ford racing manifold but when i was reading the focus performance builders handbook they were saying they had probs gettin it to fit and had to end up modin alot of it to get it to fit.wanted to know if anyone has had experiences with the ford racing manifold.
