As far as getting your OBX installed, I've read that getting the bolts started on focus headers can be a bit difficult but not impossible. I'd start a thread, ask for some pointers and reattempt installing them.

I'd highly recommend installing a high flow cat or ORP.
I already have the ORP. That's what I wanted. The shorty was part of the purchase. I just went outside and looked at the header. I can't picture which bolts were the problem. I know leaning over and trying to do it myself was frustrating. I tried the stock studs, bolts, and ARP header bolts. The weather has been crappy around here with no garage. I'll take another crack at it in the spring and have my son give me a hand. It's not essential, but I might as well use it now that I have it.
