Dysan911 Here's the thread on it. Lots of video's and sound clips

Keep in mind the catback is mandrel bent 2.5in piping I believe. Not a weld in muffler.

Best of luck

Diesel thanks for that info. I've been looking but weary of the Fart can sound. I found one cheap with a "honda style muffler" mounted where the first muffler is. I was thinking of getting that and cutting out that muffler and putting something else in.

At $430 you can have an exhaust made and put in a magnaflow muffler. I paid $300 for a full custom exhaust on my escort with muffler.

Dysan911 THe only catback I've heard that sounds so good on this car. Not fart pipe sounding but low quality refined was the Magnaflow catback. There's a thread on it somewhere around here and guys were finding it around $430 or so.

Diesel I have 2 mufflers and 2 cats. 1 muffler gone and no difference except at start up. The 4 cyls sound good with just a resonator and cat.

_RED_ Diesel do you have a 2012 focus? Other cars may sound different with out the rear main muffler. The reason this works is because the 12's have two mufflers and a resonator.

Diesel I did lunch box waste of money. I'm going to get a cat back piping system and trying to figure out a muffler to not sound hondaish.

Do you mind taking some pictures or maybe a video? I'd be interested in just replacing the lunchbox and the 40 sounds like a cheap option. Also, is it a delta flow or an original series, and what specific model is it?

BaconZombie Absolutely. Now you just need to decide where to put the muffler. I put mine up front where the original front muffler was. I think Redfocz put his in the rear, IIRM. It's simply about looks at that point.
