Muffler For a 2000 Ford Focus SE 5D?
So, I am new to this and am sorry if I have posted in the wrong area. But, I have a 2000 Focus SE 5D (wagon) and want to get a new muffler. Going around and talking to different people (from my local garage and auto stores) looking for help on installation, and what I would need... They all tell me to get it done professionally, which is what I will most likely end up doing, but need some help. I have the 2.0L CVH engine, and am looking for a nice loud muffler, and on the cheep. I also just found out that I can't just cut my old one off, and stick a new one on, but will need to pull about 3 feet of it out, from where it is bolted. So what I need help with is this,
1. What kind of muffler should I get that is best fitted for my car,
2. How I could go about doing this, hopefully with out any welding and
3. If I can do this my self (having moderate experience), what all I would need, and what would need to be done.
Thank you, and again if this is the wrong section I apologize.
