man oh man. here's what you should do
1) check for exhaust leaks
2) Take the positive pole of you battery off(disconnect it) wait 15 to 20 mins for the ECU to reset and then recconect it back
3)Check the header and make sure that you bolted everything right the way it should be.
4)check the o2 cheater and make sure you installed it right

IF THAT DOESN'T WORK LET US KNOW. BUT THOSE SHOULDBE THE ANSWERS TO THE PROBLEM.

seriously though, i dont know why people say it, i guess its just more natural too, but the focus just like most 4 cyls only have one header, unlike the big v8s that have two headers.
