Just bought a Focus Central Shorty header [woot]
...yes the golden fleece of SPI parts. So excited I found this.
I also put in a down payment on a BDR Throttle Body too.

I'm not sure if I should wait until I get a catback system to put the header on or not. If I decide to wait, maybe if I take it to a shop they would be able to duplicate it... Just a thought I havn't even looked into this yet, but it's much simpler than the Escort header mod, and the FC long tube header that is a little more abundent than this guy since it keeps the cat where it is.

I think I'm off to a good start. Everything isn't going in the order I planned but I couldn't pass this up. Sorry I just had to tell someone.

Congrats !

I always wanted to try a shorty header with my ORP. Ended up replacing the stock mani and ORP with the long tube header when it became available (Thanks Focusin !)

If you were to copy that and sell it. You could start getting some money for extra parts for your future plans

My pleasure!

I originally bought the shortie but after hearing that they crack at the welds, I went for more power at a little larger price.

Congrats on the find, take pictures so some of the newbies know its not a myth and us old folk members are not just telling stories about how we once saw a SHORTIE header for the SPI. [:p]


I am really surprised you found one, its like you found Bigfoot for gods sake!

Great plan and since FC is out of business any copy writes should not stand, but I suggest looking further into it b/c I am no lawyer.

I'm suprised I found it too!
Top it all off- under 10K on it and ceramic coated!!!
I'll post pics once I get it, but it wont be for a while.

I'll give a call to a shop or two about making a clone once I get it. Just thought I might be able to help the community out a little bit. I don't know about copyright laws either, but maybe the design could be tweaked just a little bit to avoid any complications.

yes please copy one! where did you find it at, out of curiousity? I stopped looking about three weeks ago, on account of I'm in so much debt after I just bought my shiny new TV, DirecTV HD box & 5 LNB Dish ... just in time for kickoff. : )

get the FC ORP for it available from escort focus and run that dump pipe at the front wheels. When I got my ORP we broke a stud and I was running a dump pipe for a few days, it sounded wicked

I was thinking of the ORP I heard the shorty fries our cats pritty quick so the ORP is a def an option here, I'll probly have to add a resonator in though I'm not looking to make people deaf.

I have a ORP and with stock exhaust there is no need to add a secound resonator, it is pretty quiet. I have taken My stock exhaust off and run a dump pipe and that was loud as hell

ORP with a stock manifold and Borla wasn't obnoxious. 4-2-1 header and Borla can get a bit loud.

Speaking of ORP's, I have one of those laying around if you are interested.
