How would a 350Z muffler+tips look? I've heard that it can be made to work but I've yet to see any good pics and no videos...
I've got an older 3rd gen Camaro that I can take the muffler off of to use on my '13 SE but I'd be curious about the 350Z setup.

here have a look at this.
different rear valance on there
and single tips.. i'l probs do that.. but with original velance and cutouts so the tips can go through

If your about aesthetics of the vehicle, and not too fussed about performance, you should either a) buy a new rear bumper and buy a bolt on custom fit dual exhaust system. Or B) keep stock bumper and just get them to fit a dual exhaust with dual tips both sides and lower your vehicle to make it sit nicely.
Unfortunately ford made a mistake making the car sit so high up!!! but that makes my ride look better now :)

It's fixed and it sounds much better.
It's louder than stock, but quieter than running with an open exhaust after the first resonator. It sounds much meaner as well even though I've only driven it a couple of miles.
It seems that the stock st rear muffler/ twin tip just barely touches the valance in the double walled section of the tip, so I'm not sure if it will need to be notched at all.
With low throttle applications/ steady cruising it quiets down to near stock levels even with the CAI, but if you get on it you hear it.
To anyone thinking of doing something similar take it to an exhaust shop, it needs a little bit of work as the flange is not clocked exactly the same way so the pipes end up rotated slightly in the wrong direction. A couple cuts, and a few slip joints welded on the outside and it's all tucked in just like an aftermarket catback all for less than $400, and actually under 300 if you subtract the amount of money wasted at the first shop. Even the cheapest available version of the magnaflow 2.25" cat back cost more than that just in parts alone. The lowest I've seen listed for the hatch is around $500-550. So, so far I'm pretty happy with it even though the first place messed it up pretty badly at first. Started a job they were incapable of finishing.

yea i think your right about that. I was just thinking today 4 exhaust is maybe a bit too much for the focus.
edit: I think if done right the 4 exhaust can look good. Maybe smaller tips.
Anyways I just found this on Bastuck (english): Bastuck valance+exhaust (select the "Focus 3 Turbo" option) It looks like the Bastuck valance is just the bottom insert, so it should fit on the Sedan, right? I know the rears are not the same on the sedan/hatch but that Bastuck insert looks like it should fit on either one.
However those exhaust are for the hatch, so will the fit the Sedans as well?
edit: if you click on Bodystyling > Ford > Focus 3 > Focus 3 Turbo , then you will see the valances i was referring to above. It looks like they would fit the sedan too.
but all this stuff is in Europe so it's gonna be pricey that's for sure :/

Still work in progress, although the ST catback bolts right to the cat flange it's not indexed correctly to fit inside the exhaust tunnel, so the shop that started the work failed to be able to finish it.
Just the Steeda CAI and stock exhaust already sounded pretty damned mean even in a shaky driving video.
I hope that when it's buttoned up it will sound more mellow without the drone of exiting just past a single resonator like at present.
I'll have to hit up another exhaust shop, the first shop wasn't really capable of fixing things tonight.
