all4focus About time for another update. This is now the third winter this exhaust has seen, and there is only some minor surface rust spots now. The welds are still pretty clean too. I've usually washed it about once a month in the winter, making sure to wash underneath well, but it has still seen a ton of salt, so I'd say it has held up extremely well!

As for sound, I don't think the glasspacks have burnt out much yet. It still sounds about the same as it did originally and has not gotten noticeably louder. I'm still absolutely in love with the way this exhaust sounds! It never gets old. Any day it is warmer than 40 degrees out, I have my window down so I can hear that beautiful noise in all its glory. :)

all4focus I'm pleased to see that after a few thousand miles and a lot of salt, there is no rust on this exhaust so far. I seem to be getting better mileage with it as well, especially in town (jumped up about 3mpg). Also, my focus was recently called the "best sounding focus on Youtube." It really is an impressive exhaust for how cheap it is.

darossi3 Check this out. FSWerks Race headers, Flex pipe, and Stealth system for those of you on the fence about it. I love it to death. Its loud behind, but quiet as a mouse inside with windows up at freeway speeds. http://youtu.be/6z9Kku5FPuk

all4focus My phone didn't work very well, but I'll try to get some better quality audio over Christmas break.

sleepyboy Well that's good, and it looks like it wouldn't be too loud by looking at the insides of the mufflers there. If you can try and get a sound clip I know I want to hear it lol.

I measured it myself. It's 2.25" inside diameter and almost 2.5" outside diameter. The pictures are deceiving. It's noticeably larger. Sounds absolutely amazing!

Why not use 3'' from the flex? As the exhaust is the hottest at that point compared to the after the muffler. Or just use 3'' thru out then.
