Thanks for clearing that up.

Going back to the OP,

I suppose one could also extend the end of the flex pipe piece about a 1/2". This is what I was getting at with my 'custom one will need to be fabricated' comment. I guess it's not 'needed' though.

It would be much easier and cheaper to modify the catback portion then trying to modify the flex pipe

The flex pipe is that second piece of the header, it's what connects the header to the catback exhaust. Like you said it's more or less steel mesh over flexible exhaust piping

So I have installed the fswerks header on my 2013 se and it fits nice the flex pipe hits the top of the sway bar and only has one o2 hole so I have a check engine light in because I had to unplug the the 2nd o2 sensor can some one help me. Should I drill a 2nd hole into the header and install the 2nd o2 sensor and has anyone else installed this and getting the flex pipe to clear the sway bar???

http://www.fswerks.com/collections/f...products/fs029 anyone fabricate this with the cat? Texas is picky....just went through 8 weeks before we could get my 2012 BBP Mustang GT to pass with LT/Long tubes.......American Racing.......

fswerks needs to get on the bandwagon and offer a turn key exhaust solution for MKIII using the cat...my .02 I used the Focus S as a daily driver and need to do some dialing in to increase the driving experience.....LOL
