Hi guys,

G'Day from Australia.

I am about to recieve the Ford Racing modified SVT long tube header (ceramic coated), RT Hi flow cat, and 2.25 stainless flexpipe from C-F-M, for my 2.0 L Zetec.

Will the o2 sensors fit straight in? Or do they have to be modified (eg length)? Or is it a different configuration altogether?

They will need to be lengthened. Another hot spot when doing this conversion is with the power steering hose right near the header. It is a good idea to get a longer piece and wrap it around away from the header because this header can cause the stock zetec hose to melt spraying power steering fluid everywhere!

I'm in the middle of doing this swap right now. I picked up a used SVT header from FocusSalvage, an off road pipe from the buy/sell forum and will be getting the SVT flex shortly. The O2 sensor will need to be lengthened (I believe). There are extension harnesses you can buy, but I don't see why you can't just splice in a longer wire. I will have to get an O2 cheater because I'm going to be running it without a cat, but you have an RT high flow, so you don't need to worry about that.

Good luck!
