awe this look very similar to the issues i have been dealing with for well lets just say a long time. i made a pipe that goes from the SVT header to the stock flex pipe.. it can be done with a welder, a home made svt flange, some o2 bungs and a lot of time... looks similar to what i made!! make sure the o2 sensors are in there far enough and not blocked by anything

Well you are clearly using a Zetec flex with the SVT header and of course that's why it wouldn't line up. I had to make a similar pipe to connect my SVT header to my exhaust using a old bent up ORP I got from a local member/friend. Be careful with your motor mounts. I split a poly mount and whacked the crap out of the PS rack. It's leaking now from the pressure lines. On the bright side the exhaust clearanced itself lol.

well that and its a complete 3" set up. from what ive read every where people tend to steer clear of 3" and go with 2.25-2.5 set ups. i said screw it, GO BIG OR GO HOME!
