Judging by your name I assume you have an 1989 LX. If so your best bet would be the factory header from an 86-90 Escort GT 1.9. It comes with a header from the factory and it should bolt right on to your car. You will probably need the cat for the GT as well but it should be a pretty much bolt on affair.

I made an error on my last post. I meant to say 86-90 Escort GT. 91+ stuff won't work.

Yeah, OK, see, a header and a turbo are not compatible exhaust components. One or the other, but not both. Matt, I'm surprised you didn't catch that one. ;)

I did see that but didn't feel like explaining the whole thing right then. There are headers that you use in turbo applications though, just none that are a direct bolt-on for his car.
