some things hold more personal value and are therefore priceless ;)

I would definately do the copper gasket as mentioned earlier, I did the same after my OBX gasket blew out...

yes i got the gasket that looked crome with the little holes in it, and has cardboard stuff in the middle, just do a search for copper header gasket for the focus and you shoud get a couple sites., i think myfordfocus sells one. i dont have a MIL eliminator and my car runs fine just after the header install.

Thanks to everyone for their help and suggestions! I will be picking up an OBX race header from eBay and a copper gasket with MIL eliminator seperately.

i disagree, someone just may have found a cheaper but better way to manufacture it. by the way isnt FocusCentral (a name brand) having OBX make thier stuff now? also i havent heard any negative comments about the OBX header yet, except for the gasket.

I know that people that have a great deal of experience with different brands (*cough* Ray *cough*) have warned me that OBX is towards the bottom for headers. Too bad FC feels the need to buy a header from another company and rebadge it.
