      I am almost positive that Mustang headers will not work on yours, do a search b/c it was discussed in the past month or so. I know that Ford MotorSports discontinued their headers for the 5.0 Explorer, but new headers are out called Torque Monster Headers. I believe that there is a group buy going on now for these headers. Dyno proven, you will pick up about 40(I think) ft/lbs of torque and IDK how much horsepower at the wheels. Also do a search on these b/c they are supposed to be pretty nice ones.

      Mustang headers (or any other ones for that matter) wont work. You have two options-

      1- custom, like the Torque monster ones

      2- FMS. They were discontinued a while back, but ive heard they are coming back into production soon.


      Oh, and i would be willing to bet the leak is the passenger side gasket, or to smaller chance, the EGR tube.

      James, when/where did you hear the FMS ones might come back into production? I'd never buy them, just wondering.

      Man, i cant remember the thread but it was from (IMHO) a reputable source. I had a set, they arent worth spending money on unless yours are damaged...... just my opinion.

      well that's good to know. ya the leak is on the right side, from what i hear there was a problem with the bolts coming loose or not properly torqued at the factory, anyway the person who had the x be4 me had the gaskets replaced and now they are leaking again. so im guesing that they are warped. gonna do that search on the headers but i still would like to know about any parts that may fit on the x from a mustang, maybe TB or thinner head gaskets i don't know. curious

      Probably not warped. Bolts came loose again (just a guess, mine did it too).

      i am shure if you find some one good enough you could get them to do it for 200 to 400 depending on a couple things.
