You could always get new Escort headers, it was just the fabrication that goes with them that no one wanted to deal with.

Finding the OEM at the junkyard was ideal (cheap, don't mind cutting them up) but that's where they have become rare.

Second you will need to either have a EGR flange added to the header or get a tune to cancel the EGR system then remove and block the stock EGR ports all together. Cheapest rout to go would get a EGR flange welded on, now the FINAL step will be to cut the flange FROM your cat that goes to the flex and weld it to the end of the header to make it bolt to the flex pipe.

Thats quoted from the "goodies list" thread which can be found below.

http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s...ad.php?t=46199

Read up in there it will give you a basic run down of almost the entire SPI performance options.



Ok, so where do I get an EGR flange, and what's it supposed to be off of ?

I'm not picking on you but if you have to ask, you may not want to tackle the fabrication of the Escort header to the Focus.

The EGR comes from your stock manifold and connects to a tube going into your intake manifold. The Escort header does not have this. You can cut and weld one on the Escort header or remove the EGR system from your car entirely.

The tube with the rectangle plate on it partially obscuring the port for cylinder #4 is the EGR tube.

Thanks. I know what tue you're talking about now. I actually had trouble recently with mine seperating at the end of the tube where it meets the plate. How much work is it to remove the whole EGR system ?

Thanks

I did a few searches on here once to decide if I wanted to replace the tube or delete the EGR system. I opted to replace the tube.

I don't remember what was involved, more than I was willing to put up with at the time. Just search "EGR delete" or similar and read up.

besides deleting the tube with the tune and all what other options are there out there that would opt from this thing breaking all the damn time! I have had to replace it 3 times in the past 2 years or less. And it kinda annoys me

If i where to order a header, which one exactly would i want, My friend is going to be helping me as i don't know my way around engines that well and he does so im just trying to get the parts. This is for my 2000 focus se, 2.0L SPI. I intend to get rid of my cat, so it don't matter if its a shorty or long tube, because if its a shorty then the muffler shop will use their own pipe going up to it. A junkyard is not an option, I can only buy through Lordco or NAPA, or order online.

Im just wondering if i have this right though.. ANY header for a 86-90 Escort GT will work? Other than the EGR stuff which ill figure out when i get the header. What about the header for the 97-04 escort with the SPI?
I just don't want to end up ordering a header that needs to be sent back because its the wrong one, save some hassle.
