it's best not to buy anything mechanical or performance related from ebay. their parts are off brand, usually made of junk material, and majority of the time, doesn't fit correctly.

here's all the TQ for the engine on a zetec. the link don't work because you have to pay for ALLDATA but i got all of the info atschool where we have access to it. it's basically every TQ spec required to assemble a zetec. also i can put up larger pictures next week as well. also i'll save the pictures and rehost them since they're currently being hosted on the ALLDATA server which goes down for maintenance occasionally.

Looks aligned to me. Glad to see that you saw the light finally and went with an SVT header. I remember you went about last year asking all kinds of questions about headers when you finally decided upon the M2 due to price.

If i ride around with no o2 senosors how bad is that? i figure itll be a little rough running, but the front o2 wouldnt come off the header and the rear one had frayed broken wires. so i threw out all of them and im regreting that now. A new one is $50+!!! what i was thinkin is once i get the funds for a oil pan (dented and leaking cause of rust) and the o2 sensor i would put everythin in then

not good... front 02 reads if you're rich or lean and the computer adjust accordingly. the rear just reads if the exhaust is cleaner.

hopefully it will just mean that you don't go out of open loop and it will run on a pre set range of trims.
