only other thing i can suggest other than the likes of ebay, is going into a shop the likes of motorworld etc and making a general inquiry, they might be able to find out for you :thumbs_up:

tbh, dont think you'd gain much of a power increase through a 4-2-1 manifold, but i could be wrong, mind same could be said about the de-cat, but every little helps like, and plus make it sound a bit louder too.

the cat is sat on the manifold so 4-2-1 would take out the cat aswell but also extract the gasses out quicker and a de-cat pipe would just take out the restriction of the cat so a 4-2-1 is miles better but i cant find one.Makes me sad :-(

why dont you put a bigger engine in?
if thats not possible then...
bigger throttle body
cams
cold air feed for the induction kit
lightened fly wheel
portand polish your head
its endless what you can do it just depends how deep your pockets are.
personally i would just get a bigger engine.

and alot of people put in the 1.7 puma in it and mount it to the 1.25 zetec box better power from the engine and quicker 0-60 from the box hes gonna keep the zetec-s engine in case anything goes wrong with the puma.

a car has a balance in the gear either fast aceleration or higher top speed, so buy putting a smaller box on it will scream when you get to a high speed.
