header

i have heard that the header off of an escort gt will work for spi foci? any mod needed? what year should i be looking for if this is true? would that be better than the shorty from fc? any other options for a daily driver?

You are correct! Jonny, show him what he's won... lol

a stock header from an 86-90 escort GT is a direct replacment to our stock header. the hard part is finding one. I have found one site online that sells them (i cant remember where but i searched for sites that sold Ford parts) but the price was in the same range as the FC shorty header. I have been trying to find local salvage yards with one, but to no avail, yet.

As for the FC shorty header... the only bad part i have heard that it has the possiblity of frying your cat. (and i dont mean little fluffy....) It is said that the escort header will not have that same problem.

There is one other good option, though its not avaliable quite yet. There is a guy at the Jet working on having a company make some long-tube headers for the SPI. This will be avaliable with or without a cat. The price is a little high (right now it is looking like $300 without a cat or $400 with) but it should be the best header made for the SPI, and it will only be avalible once. so you might want to check out the jet for more info.
