LOL Basicly.

I never heard of one either until a buddy put one on his TC it bolts on LIKE a catback but is only from the axle back. Its like a total of 3 feet of a larger diameter pipe LOL


Biggest waste of money next to an actual fart can.


Anyway yes the 2.3 duratec is faster than a Zetec stock for stock, better is a matter of opinion. I think the duratecs have a much more promising future than the Zetec could achieve but the Zetec has come a long way and is a really good motor too.

So basicly don't get cocky b/c you have a 2.3

LoL, the axle back thing is just a joke my buddy made up. he has a custom magnaflow axle back using a magnaflow muffler (obviously far from a "fart can"). Yea i was suprised to find out that i had a 2.3 after thinking i was only a 2.0. so i like my duratec.

Well then he did not exactly make it up himself. LOL But if all he's looking for is sound thats pretty good b/c its like nothing on the performance side. So basicly he is all stock, and you have nothing to worry about you should beat him.

The axel back is sold by a few companies, mainly to cars that have a bolt up connection that far back on the car (unlike our focus) like Injen is who makes the one for the TC and I am sure other companies do too.
