Usually... people say BEWARE OF EBAY.

But.. if you are looking for a great header at a great price.. look into getting the SVT Header 'Kit' for the Zetec.... best one you can get, my friend.

I know a couple websites have it online, and you can get it through Ford too.... and the price is NOT unreasonable.

If you get the OBX header off of ebay it will include the new gasket. You will
use the old bolts that connected the stock header. This will not delete the
flex pipe in the exhaust, it bolts right up to it. If you get the long tube header
it will delete the cat converter. And lastly, you will not need an
aftermarket exhaust. Unless of course you want one!

If you delete the cat you will fail emissions. IMO a long tube header
is better than a shorty header. One option that you do have is getting
the SVT header kit with the RT high flow cat. This way you will still
pass emissions. There is a web site that sells the SVT header and
high flow cat in a package. As stated above in a previous post.

You don't NEED the High flow Cat. Its great, but its not a necessity. A stock SVT cat will work fine.. you can find used ones for CHEAP if you look around in our BST forums.

That will save you some money.

You wont fail emissions if you don't have a cat. If you have an obd2.

You can also get a o2 cheater

WHere are you in Wisconsin? I'm near Milwaukee, and last time I had to test, they told me spicifically if I didn't have a cat, they'd fail me.

i tihnk it just depends on the persons standards and the peice that they get. I have had the OBX 4-2-1 long tube for at least a good 15,000 miles now and i love it. it's held up just great and the gains were nice for the price. But i have heard of some people getting some bad sets, so i think it's really a toss up.

but beware! and i quote this from another member on a previous thread.... "it will redefine the word rice" when it comes to exhaust sound. I am currently in the process of saving for a borla w/ resonator to upgrade performance but also quiet that thing down a little!
