norcalfocus01, the relatively large muffler shop i did stop at looked in all their books and could NOT find a HFC for a Focus with engine code 5 which is the SVT. All other models are no problem.
Don't get a HFC from a muffler shop. Get it from CFM Central Florida Motorsports or Toulsey Ford. Both places sell one. Now just FYI thats taking a chance depending on the shop that SMOGs it. It will pass the sniffer but my not pass visual depending on the tech. Some techs care others don't, hence why I said just go do the pretest. The best option is to buy a stock used cat off someone on the forums. I got mine from a part out. I see them for sale all the time.
