      I would not trust that auction. Those arent even the Explorer headers in the pic, although they are at least a Ford header.

      These are what the Explorer headers look like-

      The picture is of Mustang headers. They probably mixed up the description of the two headers. Ford Explorer headers aren't 1.625", and as James shows, they have ports going through the same space. That is what is wrong with all of the factory Explorer headers, plus the size. Good luck,
      Don

      I emailed the seller with a few questions and I'll keep you posted on what he says.

      Thats the same thing I was thinking Chris, but it say the primaries are 1 5/8" and the FMS ones are 1 1/2".

      Email him back and ask him about those. Someone should call Ford Racing too and see if they're selling them again.. *ahem Chopin*.. *cough. :D

      I believe that is the part number for the explorer headers. I will check my FRPP catalog later. From what I have been able to gather, FRPP is selling them again at a price similar to the auction amount. I doubt highly they have changed anything in the design, but who knows.

      Let me dig up that part number.

      The only thing that's made me think different is the primary size. If they are the FMS, I know tsmoko wants to make me some custom ones, right? ;)

      The Explorer ones are part# E50/E51, with the E51's being the ceramic coat. Those above are (i believe) just the ones for using explorer heads in a mustang. I cant find an E52/E53 in my catalog though.

      From my reading, the E52s are OLD SCHOOL, pre-dating the now discontinued E50/E51s.

      The 2000 year FRPP catalog lists the E52 headers for 97 Explorer 5.0L, where as it lists the E50/1 as 96. My guess is the E52 headers have the EGR bung welded on. The E52 headers must have been discontinued in 2000, as not in 2001, 2002, or 2003 catalog. I can't find my 2004. All versions are listed as 1 1/2".


      Yeah, I want to make custom ones, only time will tell if I ever complete that task!

      If the guy actually has E52 headers for sale, they should fit your application fine. As stated, they will have the EGR bung* already installed.







      * I can't believe you haven't made a comment about how the word "bung" makes you laugh everytime you read it. Cause you know it does! :D

      You have a blown head gasket? You might as well do a whole lot of other mods while you're in there. I can think of a few.

      Maybe you could massage your bung while you have it off.

      EDIT: Damn it.. someone took Section to Outback tonight for some beeeers and steak.

      Thanks for crossing the line, section.

      So wait... FMS made headers with the bung? How come these E52s have never been talked about around here before?

      Because they've been out of production for a long, LONG time. Like, back in '99 kind of long time. For whatever reason, they quit selling the 52's several years before the 50/51's.

      I'd be interested to see the price and construction of the new FMS headers in comparison to the pricey Torque Monster ones.

      i have installed a couple sets of the old fms ones. i know for shure they fit real well and they should be fairly cheap about half of the other ones out there. i would not be any thing more expensive then the fms ones unless they atleast used a 1.5/8 or bigger tube.

      Ditto blk mk8, I'd like at least 1.625" primaries, and preferably 2.5" collectors.

      By the way, do a search on Ebay, for the TM headers. They have been on there for a while, for the exact same price as the "Group Buy."
      Under $500 would be better, and still VERY high. Good luck,
      Don
