Christmas came early!

I was looking for a Long Tube header for my car and came across the below and had to let other members know. I called JBA and they said this price is while supplies last. I had JBA shorties on my last car and they were great so I ordered them up.

That won't bolt up to anything on an SVT.

You'll need the JBA 3 bolt flex pipe, they don't seem to be including, for the standard Zetec.

You'll also need a standard Zetec dipstick and dipstick tube.

And you'll need a threaded cap to block off the EGR port that you won't be using.

Edit...you posted in SVT section, but you don't have an SVT? Anyway, you'll still need the 3 bolt flex pipe, as that will mate to your stock flex.

All those are VERY minor when you look at the price of the stainless and Ceramic coated Long Tube. If you had a SVT you would buy a 2.5" 3 Bolt flange = $5.00 / Zetec Tube and dipstick = $10 at junk yard and just weld the hole shut so no need for a threaded cap. :)

Moved your thread to the zetec performance section since you don't have a SVT.

Still cheaper to get an svt header.

Agree, but still would need cat, flex, etc...

iirc a while back, someone posted how that header has held up after a few years(not very well). To the OP, I would do some more research on it to see if you are making a good decision.

I own the same header, I don't disagree.

Just want to make sure you had a handle on that.

This header should last just as long as an SVT header since it is made of 409 stainless steel also. Only things I see missing a second bung for the downstream o2 sensor and a flex pipe. If you are wanting to run without the other o2 sensor you will either have to get a tune to remove it or have another sensor bung welded some where in the flex pipe. Even if you do have the other sensor installed it still might throw a CEL, in that case you would need to either purchase or make a MIL eliminator. You can have a good exhaust shop fabricate a suitable flex pipe for you also.
