Header

Hey guys Im looking at upgrading my entire exhaust header on down, I just cant find anyone who makes a header for a 2012 Focus HB. I don't want to use one that I would have to rig or otherwise to make it fit, anyone know of where I could find a header

Injected is working on a header currently but it's not yet available. Long tube duratec headers work and only pull the exhaust 1/2". They need o2 sensors with longer wires

I am trying to find a stainless equal length header, that's what I really want to put on.

If you dont want to do anything custom talk to Aron@Injected or look for a 03-11 duratec manifold that meats your needs and adjust the exhaust.

The duratec will fit without a problem? Not sure if I want to go custom, I like the exhaust from ford racing.

There is a bracket on the oe manifold that has to be cut out to get it out of the car I think. With the long flex pipe it's 1/2" different in length. This can be made up by extending the flex pipe to mate properly with the stock exhaust. A o2 sensor bung may also have to be added. And a longer o2 sensor is needed regardless.

Wait don't cut anything there is a easier way,unhook the passenger mount and rear mount and drop the motor onto a jack and pull it forward just a bit and the stock header will pull out fairly easily,and as for aftermarket header if you can find one go for the f2 it has all the o2 ports you need and fits almost perfect.
