If your trying to get your mani/cat flowing= Why not just get a '05-'07 ST mani/cat? Its the best flowing one out there. You could have your tune w/ the rear o2 delete. I'd also have the egr deleted too.

i thought they were all gonna be the same design. I just don't have the money for a header right now so this kinda got me thinking.

Compare a 23 st w/ the 20 log style mani/cat.

It would...if you notice on aftermarket headers, they list 2.0 and 2.3 as the same model. Switching from a 2.0 to a 2.3 stock header would be the same. So check the junk yards for ST's and 03-04's with the 2.3

Plenty come up for sale in the buy/sell section for good prices:

Try to find a 2.5 Fusion exhaust manifold, it is not a mani-cat.
