From what I've seen, the flanges on the SVT/Zetec are slightly different size/shape, and some people have had to modify them a bit to get the bolts to go through, but for others the holes line up and they just slap some gasket sealer in there and call it good. The other thing to note is that the SVT exhaust has to be cut between the muffler sections in order to get it out (good thinking Ford), so it will have to be welded back together when installing it. Might want to do some searching on how others have gone about installing the SVT exhaust on a Zetec, it's a pretty common (and cheap!) mod.

Other than that, I'd love to sell it to ya! It's sitting in my parent's garage 1.5 hours away right now though, but I'll be heading back there this weekend and can pick it up.
