What modifications needed to be made to make it fit?

I wonder how it compares power wise to some of the other exhausts.
Other people were still trying to low ball the guy for either just the tips, or for the rear section of the exhaust, so they had almost given up on selling it for awhile, but when they saw that I had converted the front of the car into being a Frosted Glass ST (something that officially doesn't exist).

Really the only modifications were to cut the pipes just behind the cat flange to rotate the system to compensate for the fact that on the ST the catalyst flange is rotated relative to the N/A powered Focus; as well as to cut a little bit more of the end of that section to be able to slip fit a short section of pipe to weld it back together with the axle back section.
