|Hobbit24||I deleted the front muffler, but left the middle and the lunchbox on. There isn't really any sound diffrence from having the muffler in place. I didn't notice any sort of power gain either. Before buying my Focus I had a MS3 and deleted the muffler as well. It was Greatly louder on the Mazda than the Focus! I miss the 2.3 turbo haha|

|BaconZombie||The front muffler doesn't really "muffle" all that much. It's more of a boxy resonator. I removed the rear first, then replaced the front with a 6" round Magnaflow. A few days later I removed the resonator. The sound difference on each step was definitely noticeable, but there's not much to the front muffler. It would make a sound difference, but the rear muffler will be much more noticeable.|

|thehun||would be going for mostly sound|

|_RED_||I don't think you would notice as much of a sound increase removing the first muffler vs removing the rear. Neither add any power more for sound and cosmetics|

I took a walk down the street while they were getting set up and they had already cut off the stock stuff, but... Front muffler and "center" resonator...

I'm having my stock exhaust replaced today, when it's up on the lift I'll snap a couple shots... But...

Interesting... I wasn't aware we had 2 mufflers.

|Sonic_HedgeHog||I think thehun speaks of the muffler in the main tunnel. That's an interesting idea, haven't heard of that one. In the end though keeping the 2" exhaust piping is going to be your limiting factor for anything performance related. If you're going to go that far, you might as well hack it all off and start with 2.25" or 2.5"!|
