anarchy0392 I'd have to say thats a gasket issue and maybe a mount issue also. I had the same problem too but then I bought the felpro head gasket kit to redo all my gaskets an I took off the cat mount an that mount under the engine with those out of the way and that thick meaty gasket it sealed up nice and tight and no longer have the power loss. In fact I have quite good gains from it not svt good but better than stock and the curly fry looking ones. Ifor one think done right like I did the second time >_< it's not bad at all for ebay stuff. If you or anyone else uses them again get the felpro gasket an be sure to remove both the exhaust mount off the engine to make a flush fit.

sgtsmasher really nobody has any idea how to help me

sgtsmasher anyways got some more questions about this damn set up...i knew i should have gone with 2.5" not 3" do i make the svt header work with and orp to flex...3" big

ive got some pics of where the flex is connected to the exhaust and where it hangs down to receive the ORP to the header

and this is a shot directly under the header looking at the flex

if you need more pics to help i can get them

sgtsmasher ah i see, so i if i did not have one it would not be good for the car, gotcha thanks

mikebontoft not good... front 02 reads if you're rich or lean and the computer adjust accordingly. the rear just reads if the exhaust is cleaner.

hopefully it will just mean that you don't go out of open loop and it will run on a pre set range of trims.

sgtsmasher If i ride around with no o2 senosors how bad is that? i figure itll be a little rough running, but the front o2 wouldnt come off the header and the rear one had frayed broken wires. so i threw out all of them and im regreting that now. A new one is $50+!!! what i was thinkin is once i get the funds for a oil pan (dented and leaking cause of rust) and the o2 sensor i would put everythin in then

Looks aligned to me. Glad to see that you saw the light finally and went with an SVT header. I remember you went about last year asking all kinds of questions about headers when you finally decided upon the M2 due to price.

HAILEYS_CRAZY_DADDY here's all the TQ for the engine on a zetec. the link don't work because you have to pay for ALLDATA but i got all of the info atschool where we have access to it. it's basically every TQ spec required to assemble a zetec. also i can put up larger pictures next week as well. also i'll save the pictures and rehost them since they're currently being hosted on the ALLDATA server which goes down for maintenance occasionally.
