Would a ZX2 header fit on a Focus Zetec??

I was looking at a JBA ZX2 header at New Edge and it looks like its a good design for a turbo manifold..(same basic design characteristics..but without the wastegate fitment)

Am I dreaming or should I continue my search for a turbo manifold?

Yes it should fit.
I fit a Zx2 race header to my Zetec Contour.

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.

If you are going to use the header to mount a turbo you will have to relocate the catalysts and exhaust anyway. Either should fit. I would still choose the Focus header because of the larger 3-bolt flange.
