MSDS - It's the Choice of a New Generation :thumbsup:

Yup- Everything fits up- Make sure you tell Marty what type of exhaust you have- A 3-bolt (ALL ATXs, MTXs after 5/99? Most common) or a 2-bolt ('99 MTXs before 5/99?). Just get up under the car and take a look at where the Y-pipe meets the cat to find out what you've got if you're not sure.

Headers for our car will fit on the non-SVT 2.5, the SVT 2.5, and all 3Ls. The ports and bolt patterns are all identical.

Totally off-topic, instead of an SVT engine (200hp/165tq), why not get a 3L (200/200), which will respond to much better mods? 3L with SVT cams (Port matched) will yield 240-250/210-220.

There's no replacement for displacement...

As much as you're gonna spend on an SVT engine, do a 3L swap, like DanG said. Much more power, and a lot higher potential as well.

SVT, just say no, 3.0 is the way to go! (Sorry, dumb rhyme I just made up).

Check www.car-parts.com for engines and call around for pricing on a SVT Engine. You have been told this already in the thread you made, do some research.
