zetecDon This header should last just as long as an SVT header since it is made of 409 stainless steel also. Only things I see missing a second bung for the downstream o2 sensor and a flex pipe. If you are wanting to run without the other o2 sensor you will either have to get a tune to remove it or have another sensor bung welded some where in the flex pipe. Even if you do have the other sensor installed it still might throw a CEL, in that case you would need to either purchase or make a MIL eliminator. You can have a good exhaust shop fabricate a suitable flex pipe for you also.

I own the same header, I don't disagree.

Just want to make sure you had a handle on that.

Agree, but still would need cat, flex, etc...

iirc a while back, someone posted how that header has held up after a few years(not very well). To the OP, I would do some more research on it to see if you are making a good decision.

sleepyboy Moved your thread to the zetec performance section since you don't have a SVT.

You'll need the JBA 3 bolt flex pipe, they don't seem to be including, for the standard Zetec.

You'll also need a standard Zetec dipstick and dipstick tube.

And you'll need a threaded cap to block off the EGR port that you won't be using.

Edit...you posted in SVT section, but you don't have an SVT? Anyway, you'll still need the 3 bolt flex pipe, as that will mate to your stock flex.

Christmas came early!

I was looking for a Long Tube header for my car and came across the below and had to let other members know. I called JBA and they said this price is while supplies last. I had JBA shorties on my last car and they were great so I ordered them up.
