My exhaust from fswerks should be arriving tomorrow. I have a decent amount of car knowledge. I was wondering how hard it is to install exhaust. I can't find any guides online for my 2009 focus.
Are there any guides? And how hard is it to do/what tools do you need?

You need a hack saw, some penetrating lub, assortment of wrenches and gloves, jack and jack stands and or a lift

sawsall helps alot. if i remember correctly you have to cut in 2 places. but it's a really easy install. don't forget to change your gaskets!

If you have access to a lift your ease of installation just increased by 500%.
I have done 2 front to rear exhausts on cars in my garage on jackstands. It's the biggest nightmare ever and for the next few days after your neck and back hurt like hell!

Its rather simple like everyone else has said. I just installed the stealth exhaust on mine last weekend. Im still waiting though to add the header, since i bought it from someone here, but it didnt have the gaskets and bolts so i just need to go pick some replacements up.

Also when you do cut it. Make sure you cut it at a place where it can be re welded. just for resale or reuse purposes.

I used a saws-all and 2 jack stands and it sucked but I managed in a few hours.
I do believe the fswerks piece comes with instructions

Dumb question, I just ordered my fswerks race exhaust and I've been reading about the 2 converters, how easy are they to remove and does it turn on the engine light?
