Various Headers. Fitment Questions
 
I was looking around today on eBay and found some headers that make me curious. One is from Weapon R. I don't have any experience with the brand as far as quality is concerned but they do look good. The other is from Maximizer Exhaust. I don't have any experience with them either.

Maximizer- http://www.ebay.com/itm/Maximizer-St...sories&vxp=mtr


I am pretty sure the Maximizer header will work. But I am more curious about the header from Weapon R. It says its for the 2.3l Duratec. I'm just curious. Any concerns or experience with either brands or header welcome.

That maximizer one looks a lot like the OBX header. There are a few people on here that have gone with the OBX, and it sounds like they are satisfied with their purchase.
The price is about the same as well.
I will be going with the OBX myself next spring.

It does. It might be a copy. I couldn't find anything about the Maximizer one through a Google search, so it might be a start up company. I am thinking about getting a custom unequal length header made up.

I wanna figure out how to do it without harming performance but get that loud burble.[headbang]

The guy running the OBX. said he had to modifiy the O2 port for his 2012 so might wanna check that out

Yeah I seen that. If I decided to go with a regular Focus header, I would probably go with an FSWerks header. But right now I am awaiting some tuning and then possibly a custom header.

Yea apparently the FS one doesnt need 02 port mods but is almost double the price

True. But the FSWerks header is Ceramic Coated. Plus you never know when a nice used one will show up for sale on the forums

Neither of those will work if you want my Honest opinion.

The Maximizer only has one o2 port which means youll have to drill and weld on a o2 port somewhere in there. I would only use F2 headers if you can find it. Or Fswerks. Its expensive but the HP gains are higher with properly made Headers.
