SVT header

I want remove the stock cat, but I do not want to just use an ORP with our stock header, if I'm paying the money for an ORP I'd rather pay for a long tube race header. Now I can find all kinds of long tube race headers listed for the ZETEC engine but they all appear to have a fitment for 3 oxygen sensors that are not in the same area as the ones on the SVT. So will any of the long tube race headers fit the SVT and have the hook ups for the EGR and oxygen sensors?? Also does anyone make headers that are larger in diameter than the stock SVT one?? I'm playing on going FI, so if I'm going to swap out the header and cat for a long tube race header, I want one large enough to be beneficial to the FI.

I could be wrong but I don't think that anyone makes a better header for the SVT Focus than the stocker so you would probably be better off with the ORP.

I just did a quick search and I didn't even see anyone who makes one for our cars.

fordsvtparts is absolutely correct. There is no better header than the stock svt one. 4-2-1 design with 2"primaries.

there book that I buy for some time now(high performance ford focus builder handbook)they change the header for focus central I think and the header swap not gone give you mutch more but they gain some 9weel if you put off road pipe may be 12 wheel together

Get the book its gold and keep you header for the price not really good idea.

i thought our headers where some what considered an long tubed header... i can see that the svtf header curves all the way down below then back up to the cat, looks pretty damn long and curvey... the svtf header is the best made maybe ever for out rides... but i might be wrong....
