nobody sells them that I know of, I had too have one made way back when I was going to use my stock manifold. But I sold it on ebay at some point I think.

I've looked just about every whare I can think of. Luckily I can get steel for for free. The thing is the time it takes make a good quality peice, and since I don't do cad I can't program the burn tables at work. Ill keep watching this post for a little while then if nothing turns up I'll cut one by hand and then grind out the rough parts. I'm a little to shakey handed to freehand this sort of thing

the flange is 3 bolt off center "odd patern" Ive already checked with a local exhaust shop and they can make my down pipe if I supply the flanges I already have the t-3 for a 2.5 pipe but unless I do without the cat I'll have to have the awkward flange

I guess the cat is off topic though I'll have to search the threads on that after I make a run to McyD's

Yeah, most local exhaust shops can give you a flange that is already designed in the same pattern. If not, they'll usually make something \out of some normal steel that has the same bolt pattern.

Guys, this isn't a standard flange, it pretty focus specific. Your only hope is to get one custom made. Just take a stock cat or header to a machine shop and thell them you want a flange to match. Simple as that. Mine was cut from .500 mild steel.

I've got the flange worked out. While I had my header off today trieng to fit my manifold I took the gasket and traced it,then I took it to work with me and hopefully it has already been cut out of 3/8 - 1/2 inch mild steel then I'll have to drill the holes for the three cat studs.

This would be a good product for somone to market I looked and could not find it any whare and you have to have it to make a downpipe that goes to the cat or orp.
