I agree with the eBay header issues. I tried one on my automatic ( Zetec ). The fitment was terrible because the auto engine is set in the engine bay differently than a manual trans. The bracket didn't fit at all where the flex/cat normally would. The header was too long. In turn, that caused the flex pipe to hit the underbody at the top of the curve. Also, the header flange at the flex pipe is a three hole flange. There should only be two holes. You'll never find a replacement flex pipe if the one provided craps out. I bought mine without knowing any better. Spend the extra money one a proven quality setup. As stated above, catbacks are anyone's preference. I've had Trubendz, OBX, and now a Bosal. I can't complain about any of them.
