Retail was $220.43. I purchased it it for $ 158.71 + 5.95 shipping through parts.com. It's a nice looking piece and I think I can make it work. Yes, I do intend to run it without a cat. I may have to fab some parts but it shouldn't be too difficult. I'll keep you peeps in the loop if you're interested.......

I just got all of my parts for this setup too. I am probably not going to get it on until next week though. If you are going to run it without a cat you should call Nader at Focus Central, he might have something to help you out

Sorry guys.....still not installed. My girlfried is taking up way too much of my time. One note of interest though. I also bought a cylinder head with the thought of doing some head work and I can confirm the header does line up with the ports and the studs. There is also no provision for the EGR so I intend to yard that off. I hope to have it installed by next weekend though. Just got the news tonight that a $400 traffic fine was dismissed.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Well, that is what he said but you will have no place to connect the EGR so it won't be a 100% bolt-on.

It is also not going to be a bolt on because you'll need someone to fabricate a new flex-pipe for you. The collector flange on the SVT header has 3-bolts, while the one on the regular Foci has 2-bolts. We also don't know if the SVT cat/flex pipe will even bolt up to the regular ZX3 exhaust.

It's the metal tube that comes off the top part of the cat.
