yes, it fits. with minor modifications. there are pictures of it installed floating around. like 415 said, run a quick search.

edit: though, to be fair, the search system sucks fucking balls lately and outright refuses to work on occasion.

i had the draxas header installed and i had the stock catylitic converter taken out and replaced with a flexpipe for the moment. and since i then the CEL has been on and i know that header install can cause a CEL because of the cat not being there anymore

I had a couple friends install the draxas and they have no such CEL, in fact one of them has removed both cats...

In fact many people have taken out the second cat and they didn't get a CEL either. I don't see why removing a cat would cause a CEL, it's just a restrictive filter. You are making an assumption that because you removed a cat, the CEL showed up, when there are other reasons why the CEL was thrown. Again, search.

And no, the TB will not work, it's cable...

He has a CEL because of the header! It removes a cat. There are o2 sensors that detect if a cat is working properly remove the cat and they will let the ECU know there is a problem.

The Cosworth TB is cable and we have an electric TB, you are not going to get it to work without alot of work. Too much work, time and money in my mind to make it worth it.

I corrected myself before you posted. Sorry janova, I'm being an ass (and wrong too) today for no reason.

They will still come back. The scan tools don't turn off CEL's, they reset them and if the problem is still there is will come back.
