    hm, there must have been a diff other than that. prog? tuning? but anyways, I dont even consider a p&p head as a part that can be produced in serie... the p&p is hand made so it can HARDLY be made exactly the same on every single head.

    A MTX75 Swap with a Torsen/Quafie LSD is technically a hell of a lot better than a MSP LSD in our G5M.

    Depends on who is doing the PnP. Some are computer controlled and come out the exact same, every time.

    Could it be argued that the SVT Intake manifold is a much better manifold then the FR?

    I'll vouch for the SVT mani. This thing has great torque down low, with the long runner configuration, and when it switches to the short runners, it pulls like a demon. It will pull far past our stock redline as well.

    Ford fiesta's are better than Ford Escorts. I don't have any proof to back it up or anything, no numbers or facts, dyno's, etc....but because I say so, Fiesta's are better.

    What all did you have to do to get that SVT mani going, any reshaping or relocating of anything? I realize you got the SVT throttle body, and by the way, how much bigger is that throttle body?

    Heater hoses need rerouting, different fuel hose, wiring TPS/FPS/IAC, different air intake, throttle cable modification. It sounds like alot, but trust me it is so worth it! You'll be amazed at the top end pull your car has with this manifold. My friends with Hondas are even impressed with the top end in my car now. The throttle body is 63mm, I believe.
