sleepyboy I agree, though for most power levels 2.25" will be fine.

4g63T For those saying anything sub 2.5in is worth it. It isn't, sadly. 2.5in is what is necessary.

Hmm well then that's not bad though I recommend a 2.5" exhaust. I have a magnaflow exhaust and it's supposed to be 2.25 but it's a tad under that. I suspect that all 2.25" exhausts and parts that size a shade under that measurement. I bought a Thrush glass pack to put in to quiet it down and it's was the same diameter, I ended up putting a 2.5" one in since it wouldn't restrict it any and still take the noise out. Worked out perfectly and is so much more tolerable now.

Focusblackzx5 Suggest you the Magnaflow 2,25'' SS flex back for 00-04 ;)

I have it on my 05..yeah lol...and it sounds really deep.

Quality looks good with polished T-304 SS throughout. The only change I made was to cut off the 4.5" bell and replace it with a 3".

waste of time and money and I would think zero change in sound. If anything get rid of the stock lunchbox and replace it with a straight pipe.

Edit: I just read you already got rid of the muffler in the midpipe. What's your budget here? Honestly with a regular zetec, go Borla CBE. But that is what I ran on my old car so I am partial. I'm actually surprised no one has mentioned it. The Borla is pricey but sounds great, can also go the trubendz with Borla muffler for cheaper. Replacing a stock zetec CBE with an SVT one would actually make it quieter as there is an extra resonator due to the factory SVT 4-2-1 headers.
