OBX VS. FSWERKS

http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=235870



If you read through most things on here for duratecs and not zetecs, you will find that for:

2.0l - go with OBX
2.3l - go with fswerks


Also, get the stealth piece for your exhaust otherwise you will be one loud car screamin down the road.

Does the OBX remove all my fancy 02 sensors?

They only scan the obd for codes here in wa. As long as you get it tuned than you will be fine. I have passed twice now with my header setup.

The obx comes with the flex pipe or can I just get the header cuz I have
