They should fit. I fit the Zx2 header to my Contour Zetec.

The ZX2 header is an unequal length header with a 2 bolt flange located between the #1 and #2 cylinders.

The Focus Zetec header is a near equal length, symmetrical header with a 3 bolt flange located between the #2 and #3 cylinders.

The Focus header flows better over the power band. I have been trying to adapt a JBA Focus header plus a Random Technologies cat for the Focus to my ZX2 S/R.

The Contour uses the same exhaust manifold configuration (especially the VCT Zetec 'Tours) as the ZX2, so the header should fit with minimal effort.

They will bolt to the head but thats it. the cat has a diffrent flange on it, and their oil pan is reversed. You could rig somting to fit, but it just wouldnt be worth the time.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">The oil pan is different (reversed) compared to the Contour. I have the Kamikaze 4-1 race header for the Zx2. I had to 1) plug the original o2 sensor location and tap it into the opposite side (not enough room; a/c compressor), 2) Have the downpipe MADE because the oil pan, in fact, was reversed, and 3) move the cat under the car. Cost me total $180 for all the MODIFICATIONS (not including the cost of the parts)
But I am the only Zetec Contour rolling with a header.
