sgtsmasher well that and its a complete 3" set up. from what ive read every where people tend to steer clear of 3" and go with 2.25-2.5 set ups. i said screw it, GO BIG OR GO HOME!

sleepyboy Well you are clearly using a Zetec flex with the SVT header and of course that's why it wouldn't line up. I had to make a similar pipe to connect my SVT header to my exhaust using a old bent up ORP I got from a local member/friend. Be careful with your motor mounts. I split a poly mount and whacked the crap out of the PS rack. It's leaking now from the pressure lines. On the bright side the exhaust clearanced itself lol.

sgtsmasher we made sure that the 02 and a/f sensor were in far enough

xy0s08 awe this look very similar to the issues i have been dealing with for well lets just say a long time. i made a pipe that goes from the SVT header to the stock flex pipe.. it can be done with a welder, a home made svt flange, some o2 bungs and a lot of time... looks similar to what i made!! make sure the o2 sensors are in there far enough and not blocked by anything

sgtsmasher its actually funny you did bring this back cause it was in the shop last night and i got picks of everything to with the exhaust, im not home at the moment so ill post them in a bit. ill have the custom orp to flex to HFC to Res then the rest of the exhaust... and i got everything from mandrelexhaustsystems.com with no fitment issues other then orp, hense why i called it custom

ChrisRobin Bringing this back....

How did it work out?? As I was reading your posts, up until you mentioned you got your flex pipe from Trubendz, I thought: "Crap... I bet he got it from Trubendz"

I had fitment issues with my exhaust from there. I still haven't installed my flex pipe. I have a HFC made by Dom to install (which I'm sure I'll have zero issues), and then the flex pipe from Trubendz. I hope it fits properly.

sgtsmasher so im going to be posting picks of the ORP that the shop made for me 3" custom to that flex and everything fits nice. i just wish that the svt header wouldnt sit so low to the ground on top of my car being lowered. whats the max amount of punishment that header can take before a repair patch should be put in? im talking about something similar to a skip plate lol.

sgtsmasher Does anyone have any suggestions before i bring the car the chop shop, like i said before what i want them to do is cut exhaust right after the cat take off the hanger bar before the flex, weld the orp and flange they made together, bolt it to the header, line up the flex, bolt that together, cut a chunk out for the resonator weld the cat and res together and and then make sure i have 2 o2 sensors 1 gor the actual o2 and 1 for my new wideband sensor. After i druve it home which would be a quarter mile down the road have turbo tom tune it, and then i should be in beast mode after that :D

sgtsmasher the ORP i had left over from the first picture, the straight pipe on the left, i had taken that out for the HF Cat, and ill be taking another chunk of exhaust out for the 14"x3" Resonator. the ORP i want to use has the same flange end as the flex, and the flex i got from here: http://www.mandrelexhaustsystems.com...tec/Categories
