2012 Focus Sedan dual exhaust
 
Hello, I am new here and my wife picked up a new Focus about two weeks ago and although its her car I can't but mod it since I also drive it. I noticed all of the european ford focus's have a dual exhaust set up. After some research I found they are basically using a transverse muffler. I used a Borla muffler and some 3.5" stainless tips. A local muffler shop did the install. I removed the middle muffler and dropped in a K&N cone filter. Here are some pictures. The car sounds so sweet and there is no audio drone at any speed.

Parts List: Borla # 40477 2.5" 2.5" 19"X 5.5" X 10.25" Transverse Mount Split Exit $$ 265.00

Tips Ebay $$ 29.00 each

Local Body Shop cut out rear bumper $44.00 labor. The rest is up to the welder to get all lined up. $65.00 Install Total price $432.00

Very cool.

Post up part #'s for the exhaust and tips if purchased seperate for others here who may be interested in your setup.

And when you get the time post up a video of how it sounds. I'm curious, I liked dual exhaust over single sided with dual tips but depends on the sound I guess.

Good job!

we definately need to hear it

Ok, I will get the parts list together. It will be Monday on the sound clip. Sorry. I will try to do one this weekend while on a road trip to get it on the move and at idle. This is how it should have come stock. I really like how the european st and rs look so I did it my self. Ford racing sells a cat back for our cars but its $660.00 and is a dual tip single side exit and since theirs eliminated the resanator I also took it off.

On the muffler and pipes I roughed them up and painted them with flat black engine paint.

When the car is clean and it quits raining I will do a gallery spread.

Cool, keep us posted. This is actually the coolest thing I've seen someone do to their new 2012 so far.

Thanks for the positive feed back. I knew you guys would like it. This car is so much nicer than any other before it. Unbelieveable.

Very nice unique modification that, from what I can tell, looks very OE like. Nice job!
