Custom 3" stainless Magnaflow exhaust





Just finished building and installing this. Nice deep tone, I like it. had to make a custom flange to adapt to existing 2.25" flange, made it out of two pieces of 1/4" plate welded together. I could them use the original gasket. May have to dyno for the third time to see if there is an improvement.

Why not out the rear of the car? I would dump it before the jack stand before I ran it in front of the tire. Its a tough look to pull off.

Yes your right not for everyone but I only bought enough parts to do side exit and where the exhaust exits normally 3" would be difficult to do . It has a much deeper tone than lunch box delete which is what I had. I really think the sound is better but my own opinion obviously.

Looks very well done. Can you put up some pictures with it on the ground? I'm intrigued as I've only seen this one other time on a focus

I don't have a video yet.
That flange is home made from a template made from the original. Made the first one and found there wouldn't be enough coverage for the gasket, because of the size of 3" hole so I made an identical one with a 2.25" hole to back up the 3" one, then welded them together.

I liked yours thats why I did it, but wanted 3" instead. I had a hunch that the bigger muffler and pipe size would give it much lower tone and I was'nt wrong, low and deep. No rice sound was what I was looking for.
