i would do some sort of header. but i would definetly go with focussport which ever one you decide. excellent quality.i have had no problems with mine rusting or leaking.

and i have my old throttle body thats been ported i will let the borrow, before you spend the money on one you can kinda get a feel for what its going to do for you. i will either give it to brian or i will bring it to the next G2G.

Jamie,

My vote is for header, then Crower 2's at this stage in the game. Yeah, that's more than $600, but I love spending other people's money.

I wouldn't write off the chip completely. TheChipGuy (Mike Wilson from Charlotte) has burned custom chips for Rich - you basically tell Mike what you want, and he'll burn you a chip. He also has a "flip chip" with a little 4 position selector to allow you to choose between 4 different programs. You can up the rev limiter, advance the timing (need premium gas for that), disable the EGR, adjust the speedo (for smaller/larger diameter tires), and several other things. IMHO, it's something you'll want to do near the end of your mod list, so Mike can optimize a chip for your setup. The Ford EECV system is pretty darn versatile and programmable for a factory ECU.
