Proformance update. Just drove for 4hrs with new exhaust. It sounds great. At 70-80 you just get a faint hum a little louder than stock. In the triple digits the car sounds really smooth. It feels like the engine likes it. The car pulls hard. Out of the whole its way better sounding than stock. Gas milage appears to have either improved or did not change. I had the cruise set on 83 most of the way and got 29 mpg overall. I am impressed. The most important part is the wife really likes it. We stopped at cracker barrel on the way and a bunch of people looked at the car and gave positive comments.

Looks so good, I was wondering if this was possible considering how low that plastic bit of the bumper goes. I'm so happy it looks this clean when it is cut out....so like how would I find someone who can cut it out and do such a clean job like you did? I'm definately wanting to do this, except I'm going to try and find black/gunmetal muffler tip. Bro your car is looking so legit.

Question: the muffler came chrome and you painted it flat black? what kinda paint did you use? thanks!

That's a really well thought out, well done modification. I like the tips you used, they are a perfect fit for the car.
The body shop also did a great job with the bumper cut out.
NICE JOB !!!!!!!!!!!

750 miles total trip and I must say that this mod was worth doing. The car sounds great and the exhaust looks so good no one know its not stock.

I had a guy approach and check out the car. He asked a lot of questions. His closing statement as he walked away was "Man I really like how ford put duals on the Focus finally" I didn't say anything. It will be funny if he decides to buy one and the dealer can't provide it.
