If you still have your cat then you would be in ST but if that header deleted it that would put you in FSP i believe.

If you have a Cat in the OE location:
ST
If you have a aftermarket CAT with 6 inches of the OE location:
STX
If you have no CAT (cats are overrated:P) FSP for you. That's where all the cool Foci aspire to be anyway \/\/

What else can I do to my car to make it better for FSP class? Pulleys? Cam gears? Cams? Anti-roll bars?

Tighten the nut behind the wheel, that is always hardest issue to solve.

After that tires

Also, some local regions may not care that much if you are running without a Cat, but it really depends on region to region.

Check my FSP build thread, I am building a focus specifically for FSP.

Here's a quick breakdown/summary on allowable mods, check the rules for details:
Engine-
Any air intake, any throttle, any intake manifold, mild port matching between intake mani and head (See rules for details), any exhaust header, any exhaust that terminates behind the driver
Internals, Cams, Head, must all remain stock. Cam gears may be added to adjust cam timing. Rotating parts cannot be lightened, but they can be blueprinted (see rules for limitations). ECU can be reflashed.
Clutch and fly wheel can be changed, any shifter linkage allowed. LSD can be added, or you could weld your diff :D (only for the hardcore)

Wheels and tires:
Any DOT approved tire, no limitation on wheels. You can modify fenders and liners, but you cannot modify the hub or any other suspension component inboard of the hub flange

Suspension:
Any spring and damper, except you must use original mounting configuration. Camber plates and other alignment devices are allowed (see rules for limitations), camber plates and rear camber bolts are OK.
Sway bars are free, poly bushings are OK all around. Engine mounts can be poly, you can't increase the metal/rubber ratio in the mount.

Interior/body:
Interior to remain intact expect for the following: Front Seat replacement, steering wheel replacement, stereo delete, speaker delete
Rear spolier and front air dam allowed (rules for limitations)

Misc allowances:
Drums can be upgraded to discs, must bolt on
A/C delete
Emissions delete
Must keep E-brake
Fuel cell meeting GCR can be used
Battery location/type free
