The duratec long tube headers fit!!! (no check engine light)

Time to make some waves on the forums people. Get Ready for this. Just Finished with NO MODIFICATIONS Adding a Long Tube Header and Flex with No Modifications at all to the original exhaust.

I drove over 75 miles already without a single Check Engine Light for the CAT Effieciency Code.

The Header is F2 (But Im positive The Fswerks header will Fit even better).























It even has the spot to bolt the extra bolt that was on the Duratec manifolds!

This is a Direct Bolt on With NO MODIFICATIONS NEEDED TO FINISH!

Since I am a Perfectionist since the pipe was 1/2" short and it pulled the exhaust slightly forward I cut and welded a 3/4" extension to the cat back to make it go back to the perfect position it was in.

I dont expect rep to be posted. But for all the shit you guys give me for being dishonest or not knowing anything about this platform I certainly deserve some. (considering I have owned 8 Ford Focuses since 2000)

ENJOY!

(Also FSWERKs we spoke already today Im sorry for the mix up but im sure your header will fit since this one does and you can link this to your facebook you have my permission)

(C-F-M William hope this helps you guys so you can start selling some fswerks Long tubes)

Looks good. Let us know what kind of sound difference it makes!


As for the rest, we don't give you shit for not knowing anything about Focuses...we give you shit because you stubbornly defend your position and call other people out about it.

EDIT: Also, I'm only semi-surprised that it fit because the engine *is* a Duratec.

So you can install this and an aftermarket exhaust like the FSWerks Stealth and keep all the cats in their original location? That's pretty much the most important thing for me when it comes to modding the emissions system as CA is pretty strict on the visual inspection. And I know from another thread there seems to be some confusion about whether PZEV or any other Foci have different cats
